Metal Braces are devices used in orthodontics to align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, simultaneously working to improve dental health. Traditional Braces are used to correct under bites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Metal Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws. The dentist inspects the teeth visually and if metal braces are appropriate he sets up an appointment with the patient to take X-rays, moulds, and impressions for the required treatment. Digital treatment starts with the creation of a three-dimensional digital model of the patient's arches. Laser scanning plaster models are created using dental impressions producing a model. Computer-automated treatment simulation has the ability to automatically separate the gums and teeth from one another and can handle malocclusions well. It enables clinicians to ensure, in a virtual setting, that the selected treatment will produce the optimal outcome, with minimal user input. The typical treatment times varies from six months to two and a half years depending on the complexity and types of problems. Surgery might be required in extreme cases. Two weeks before the braces are applied, orthodontic spacers may be required to spread the back teeth apart in order to create enough space for the bands.
