Braces Orthodontics

Orthodontic braces is an effective treatment option for achieving straight teeth. The technology in braces and the treatment style used by some dentists have evolved significantly over the past decade.

It works by bonding brackets to each tooth in the mouth. A memory metal wire is secured to each bracket. The wire provides the appropriate forces to move the teeth. The wire is regularly changed to direct the teeth to their final positions. The patient is then given a  retainer appliance to ensure their teeth do not drift from their final positions.

Self Ligating Braces

Technology and understanding in orthodontics is moving forward at a lightning pace. Self-ligating braces is a great example of how improvements have made to the patient experience. These new style of braces do away with the rubber bands attached to each bracket to hold the wire in place. Instead, the bracket has a built-in door that is closed to hold the wire. This results less friction between the bracket and the wire. Less friction results in less pain for the patient and can reduce overall treatment time
