All About Braces

If you’re human (which we hope), you’re probably a little confused about how braces work. How can metal brackets and wires physically MOVE teeth in your jaw?!

Well, we can explain.

Braces apply constant, gentle pressure to your teeth, which over time, move teeth into their proper positions. Your braces are at work every moment throughout your orthodontic treatment.

Those poor braces never get a break! The two main components of your braces are the brackets that are placed on your teeth and the archwire that connects all the brackets.

This archwire is bent to reflect the way we want your teeth to look after treatment. As this wire tries to return to its original shape, it applies pressure to move your teeth.

Makes sense, right?
