Multibracket appliances are the well-known fixed braces. These braces consist of brackets, arches and wires or bands.
The multibracket appliance involves gluing brackets onto the teeth. Metal arches are then attached to the brackets and bands are attached to the molars. The bands and arches exert pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired position. The wires need to be tightened regularly by the dentist.
