How can prosthodontics operate?

They operate by putting directly force  on our teeth and jaw. This  depends  on  specific case, we could chose the most suitable one to bring the best results.

The fixed retainers include: 

Braces:  the most popular one, it contains the splint, bowstring and/or bracket. The splint usually put around one or more teeth and play  role as  anchor  point for them, while the bracket is stick firmly on the front surface of teeth. The sphere bowstring goes through the bracket and fixes firmly  into the splints. Tightly the bowstring will increase the force on teeth, gradually shifting them to right places. The brace has been modified monthly to bring the expected results, which could be achieved within few months up to few years. They will become smaller, lighter, less show the metal than previous.
