Using dental brackets


May Alloh always bless Beloved Mawlana and give him a long blessing life
I read in some articles that using bracket is not allowed in Islam no matter what the reason is because it means changing what He has created for us. Others saying, it is allowed if teeth need to be repaired, because if not so,will affect his health. So the reason is purely for healthiness.
Some say using brackets is allowed not only for healthiness but also for beauty. If teeth condition is not orderly, buckteeth, or his teeth coming forward so that they need to be push back, etc, then using bracket is allowed because Alloh also love beauty. What is not allowed is if someone uses the bracket itself (tools/brackets put in his teeth) to make his appereances more attractive.
I need to know wich one is allowed & not. I really appreciate your time for answering my questions. Thank you


wa `alaykum salam,

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,

Using bracket or braces for health reasons or to correct some abnormalities in the teeth, gums or jaw is permissible. It is also permissible if there is sufficient need for it. However, if it is done to change whatever is already perfect and normal for  purely ostentation purposes, then it is not allowed.

Allah knows best.

Muhammad Razib
