However, some orthodontist work exclusively with adults. Their goal is to straighten out teeth that are crooked, and to correct jaw misalignment.
Orthodontists use metal brackets, or braces, and metal wire to move their patients’ teeth. The brackets can be made from either stainless steel or ceramic. These brackets are attached to teeth and a metal wire is then attached to each of the brackets. The wire is tightened over time to move the teeth. People who have misaligned jaws may also need to wear additional equipment. Orthodontist may use headgear, plates, expansion appliances, and other devises to shift the jaw bones and the teeth.
