Dental Braces are considered a method of using a system of fixed braces on the surface of the teeth and the bowstring that are adjusted to the right impact force to help the teeth move to the desired position. Or with the modern Invisalign transparent trough system, smart braces technology has overcome all the overbite, underbite, crooked teeth .. of the customer.
1. Dental braces are the safest orthodontic method
Braces are the method using a set of orthodontia types such as wire, bracket, elastics, hooks, minivis, transparent plastic troughs … create an arc around the teeth to shrink and adjust the teeth to the standard position, plastic trough transparent,… create an arc around the teeth to shrink and adjust the teeth to the standard position
The dental braces must be carried out by a team of highly specialized dentists, conducting analysis of the jaw structure through X-rays, selecting the appropriate orthodontia and performing standardization. The braces process is perfectly possible to know how the results change through modern predictive tools. The usual braces will last more than 1 year to bring the best effect.

Step 5: Schedule a follow-up visit for the braces process
During the period of braces, re-examination is required. The dentist will monitor the shift of teeth in stages and adjust the corresponding braced force to achieve maximum efficiency in the shortest time.

- The upper incisive tooth protrudes outwards (called the overbite)
- How does the upper incisive tooth bite behind the lower incisive tooth (called the underbite)

Initially the braces of the customer feel a little painful, but over time, the customer’s mouth will adapt and get used to them. Braces will gradually shape the customer’s teeth into new and appropriate positions.
