What are stainless steel braces?
Stainless steel braces are metal brackets that are placed on all of your teeth and stung together by a piece of wire. The wire is then held in place by small elastic bands, which come in a a variety on different colours. Braces put constant pressure on your teeth, which helps them to stay and grow in the right place. Braces are usually metal but you can get plastic brackets that are almost invisible.
