The fixed braces are still frequently used appliance for the treatment of malocclusion. They provide controlled movement of the teeth in desired directions. They consist of metal or ceramic brackets bonded on the front surfaces of the teeth connected by metal wire. Orthodontic wires are inserted into the brackets, providing the movements of the teeth. Wires are to be exchanged during the treatment and thus gradually shape the dental arch in desired form. In most patients, it is necessary to put on a fixed appliance both in the upper and lower jaw in order to achieve a proper bite. The resulting correct articulation of the teeth will ensure long-term stability of the treatment result and the correct function of the teeth.
Braces can be in metal or more aesthetic – ceramic variant.
