Braces consist of metal wires, springs, brackets, and elastic bands. These parts are put together and used to straighten teeth that are crooked or mouths with an under or overbite. Braces work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth over an extended period of time, gradually moving the teeth in the desired direction. The amount of time that a patient has to wear braces varies, but typically patients have to wear braces for one to three years.
Braces are available and effective for patients of all ages, so no matter how young or how young at heart you are, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted. For more information on how braces can help you, contact us today!
