Braces in Ottawa


Why get braces?

Dental braces (also known as orthodontic braces, or simply braces) is a device used in orthodontics to align teeth and their position with regard to a person’s bite.

They are often used to correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bite and open bites, deep bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Orthodontic braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to widen the palate or jaws or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws. Dr. Jaleel will attach brackets (or bands) to each tooth with glue. Arch wires are fitted into all the brackets and are usually held in by a self-securing bracket, or with rubber or wire ties. It is common to feel some discomfort at the beginning, so soft foods are recommended.
