How Do Braces Work?

Do you or someone you know have braces? If so, you might be wondering how they work. Braces are devices that are used to align and straighten teeth. They do this by putting pressure on the teeth over time. This pressure slowly moves the teeth into the correct position. Different types of braces work in different ways.

For example, some braces use brackets that are glued to the teeth. Others use bands that go around the back molars, and some use clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth.

No matter what type of braces you have, they all work to gradually move your teeth into the correct position. So, if you're wondering how braces work, now you know!

Types of Braces We Offer

For many people, the thought of braces conjures up images of metal brackets and wires. However, braces have come a long way in recent years; many different types are available today.

The most common type is metal braces. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and are glued to the front of the teeth. The brackets are connected by a wire, which puts pressure on the teeth and moves them into alignment.

Another popular type of braces is clear braces. Clear braces are made of a clear plastic material and are less noticeable than metal braces.

*Invisalign® is a type of clear brace that is virtually invisible. It consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move the teeth into alignment. Whether you choose metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign, the goal is the same: to straighten your teeth and give you a beautiful smile!

Am I a Candidate for Braces?

You may be a candidate for braces if you have any of the following dental problems:

  • Malocclusion (an improper bite)
  • Spacing (missing teeth or very large gaps between teeth)
  • Crowding (too many teeth in a small space)
  • Overbite (when the upper teeth significantly overlap the lower teeth)
  • Underbite (when the lower teeth extend past the upper front teeth)
  • Asymmetry (unevenness or misalignment of your teeth)

Even if you don't have any of these dental problems, you may still want to get braces for aesthetic reasons. If you're not sure if you're a candidate for braces, just schedule an appointment with an orthodontist, and they can give you a professional evaluation.
