There is no permanent means can be removed and installed, and some that can be removed and installed. Which he set up the mechanism, push and hold the movement of teeth. Ortho treatment aims to improve the function of talk, the aesthetic front, the corner of the lips, jaw, and smile.
Instead, the installation (braces) done by a specialist orthodontist dentist. If the normal structure, teeth lined up neatly or between the upper and lower teeth can be closed exactly. when it is symmetrical – midline of the two upper front teeth parallel to the midline of the two bottom front teeth, while its location right in the middle of the face. However, not everyone is good tooth structure. These disorders become the third biggest problem after cavities and gum disease. If the teeth are too crowded, back and forth, buck tooth, or otherwise too rare, needed braces to straighten. Also in the normal condition the lower jaw, upper jaw forward (crooked), or vice versa, the lower jaw is too advanced, the upper jaw normal (buck tooth). If it not quickly treated, these disorders would make the toothbrush time not maximum. As a result, teeth so easy get cavity, many tartar grow, gums bleed easily, gingivitis and brings up halitosis. In more severe stages, may cause interference even headaches and neck muscles.

In buck tooth case, the bone-cutting surgery is needed and done by the orthodontist and oral surgeon. Next, will be described in detail the treatment plan and financing. Because prolonged treatment, between six months to three years (depending on the heavy-light case), the cost is relatively expensive. Patients must also be willing to sign a consent Inform or maintenance agreement, both for treatment with braces, removing and check.
