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 a 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. 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 you teeth to look after treatment. As this wire tries to return to it’s original shape, it applies pressure to move your teeth.

Makes sense, right?!
