Braces are temporary and so they cannot be made from any material which is non-removable. Dental braces are made from materials that are removable like metal wires of silver colour. Dental braces are made in small squares or brackets. They are directly fixed to the teeth. The dentists use either plastic or ceramic or stainless steel to make dental braces. There are certain reasons as to why dental braces are used. One reason is that it gives a continuous pressure to the teeth and allows them to move only to a certain location. This will make the teeth achieve a desired location but this process is a little time consuming. It depends on the structure of teeth and accordingly it takes a given period to make it the way you want it to be. After all wires are attached to your teeth so it tends to become loose in some time. For this the patient should have a monthly check up and the orthodontist will adjust the braces for it to stay.
