How Do Metal Braces Straighten Your Teeth?

Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires、 and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and connected to each other through the use of a metal brackets, wires, and bands. 

As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. 

Ceramic braces are also available, which are the same color as your teeth, for a more discreet orthodontic option.

The length of time it takes for metal braces to straighten your teeth varies depending on your individual needs. 

In general, it could take anywhere from 12 months to three years for your teeth to be properly aligned. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll review all potential treatment plans with you to determine the best option!

Can Braces Damage My Teeth? 

If you’re worried about braces damaging your teeth, rest assured that they’re completely safe. Braces have been used for many years as the most common method to straighten teeth and correct issues with bite patterns. 

Orthodontic technology has only become more advanced, meaning the wires, glue, applications, and overall process have only gotten better over time. 

While braces themselves won’t damage your teeth, it’s vital to maintain good oral hygiene standards while you have braces on. The buildup of food and sugar on and around your braces can lead to other dental problems.
