Braces are some of the most common fixed appliances. They consist of bands, brackets and/or wires. They are a lot more comfortable and are much smaller and flatter than in braces used in the past.
They are traditionally made of only the highest quality stainless steel or titanium. Braces create a constant pressure on your teeth which then helps to move the teeth into their correct position.
Our Orthodontist will regularly check the braces and may tighten the wire. It is possible for the patient to notice their teeth feeling a little loose. That is completely normal, that feeling will go away once the teeth are done the moving.
Conventional metal braces are the most popular and cost-effective of orthodontic treatment, it also does take less time. You can also change up your braces by choosing colorful elastics for the brackets, or other kinds of modifications.
