Dental Banding
(30244 Views)
Tooth banding is a jargon term in orthodontics used for the application of metal bands, usually on the molars. The bands are made of metal and are fixed onto the tooth by using dental cement. The metal bands transfer the strength of the braces wire or other types of braces onto the tooth. Tooth banding was especially used in the past because regular brackets couldn’t resist great forces. In most cases nowadays, the usage of bands is not necessary in orthodontics due to innovations in the gluing technology & materials. The risks related to tooth banding are relatively small. Of course, however, complications like caries can develop in individual cases and require additional treatment.
