Dental Bracket and Retainers: Types, Care, What to Expect

If you have crooked teeth and/or a misaligned bite (an underbite or overbite), there are a variety of treatments that can help straighten teeth, including dental bracket and retainers.

Many general dentists are doing basic alignment and orthodontics, but orthodontists specialize in correcting irregularities of the teeth.

The dentist or orthodontist you choose will ask questions about your health, conduct a clinical exam, take impressions of your teeth, take photos of your face and teeth, and order X-rays of the mouth and head. An appropriate treatment plan is made based on analysis of the gathered information.

In some cases, a removable retainer will be all that's necessary. In other rare cases (especially when there is an extreme overbite or underbite), surgery may be necessary. In most cases, however, dental brackets will be needed.

What Types of Dental Bracket Are Available?

If dental brackets are indeed the solution for you, the dentist or orthodontist will prescribe an appliance specific for your needs. The dental brackets may consist of bands, wires, and other fixed or removable corrective appliances. No one method works for everyone.
