About conventional orthodontics
Orthodontics is generally focused on moving bad positioned teeth and controlling and/or changing growth and development of the jaws. Orthodontic mechanics (brackets, wires etc.) are temporary placed and glued on the outer/visible tooth surfaces. Treatment time vary due to complicity of the orthodontic problem. Average treatment time is 18-24 months. After active treatment it is essential to use some fixed or removable appliance to stabilize achieved results.
