Orthodontics braces are the most common appliance used for orthodontic procedure.
Braces are used to move teeth into the ideal position and align how they bite together, known as occlusion. Malocclusion is used to describe the misalignment of teeth between the upper and lower dental arches, using the first molars as a reference point.
Some of the reasons for performing orthodontics are crowded teeth, impacted bite, protruded teeth, under bite, ectopic teeth, open bite, cross bite, missing bite, spaced teeth, deep bite and thumb sucking.

Removable appliances - which are usually plastic plates that suits the roof of the mouth and clip on to some teeth; they can be taken out and cleaned.
Functional appliances - a pair of removable plastic braces that are joined together or are designed to interact together and clip on to the upper and lower teeth.
Fixed appliances - a non-removable brace that is fixed to each tooth with a metal or ceramic bracket or attachment.
