Are braces a "medical necessity"?

I share joint legal custody and am responsible for 50% the cost of "necessary" medical and dental care according to the Divorce Agreement. Without my knowlege or approval, my three children are getting braces at a cost of up to $12,000. While I may feel that one of the children really does need braces, I do not belive that it is necessary for the other two and would probably not have approved them if asked. Are braces considered a necessity? How might I demonstrate that they are not in this case?
