Orthodontics is a specialty of Dentistry that is responsible for correcting a "poor bite" or defective dental occlusion (when the teeth are crowded or crooked) and when the upper and lower jaws do not fit together correctly. Problems that may be caused by genetics or could result from injury, early or late tooth loss, or thumb sucking.
There are several ways to straighten your teeth and correct the above problems. The type of orthodontic treatment you follow will depend on your preferences and the options proposed by your dentist or orthodontist. Other names by which we can commonly call brackets are "braces".

What can we Fix
with Braces?

Below we show you the types of bites that can be corrected
using braces.


Overbite is a type of dental malocclusion that occurs when the teeth of the upper jaw bone protrude noticeably over the teeth of the lower jaw bone.


Underbite is a type of dental malocclusion that occurs when the teeth of the lower jaw bone noticeably overlap the teeth of the upper jaw bone.

Open bite

It occurs when the front or back teeth do not come into contact. So, there are empty spaces between the teeth, since those of the upper arch do not touch those of the lower arch.


Crowded teeth are those that do not have space in your mouth, so the teeth are like mounted.

Misplaced Midline

The misplaced midline bite is a malocclusion that occurs when the line between the upper and lower incisors does not coincide.


A diastema is a space left between two teeth. It most often occurs between the top two central teeth. However, gaps can remain between any pair of teeth.


When the teeth of the upper jaw engage inside with respect to the lower teeth, we say that there is a crossbite.

Types of braces

  • Metal Braces
  • Aligners
  • Retainers

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces realign teeth by applying pressure. These are usually small brackets attached to the teeth, connected by a wire, which are periodically tightened by the dentist or orthodontist to gradually move the teeth and jaw. They can be metal or tooth-colored. Sometimes they are placed behind the teeth.

Aligners or Invisible Braces are a series of clear, removable aligners that fit over your teeth to provide virtually irritation-free treatment with minimal adjustment discomfort. Clear aligners are nearly invisible, minimally invasive, and resistant to clouding from wear. With clear aligners, there are no brackets to come off and no wires to break and pinch.

They are devices that we place on your teeth after having completed your braces or braces treatment to maintain the position that your teeth have adopted.
