All treatment with braces operates using the principle of gentle pressure applied to your teeth and supporting tissues. While many people think of their teeth as set in their jaw, your teeth are actually attached to the periodontal membrane. The periodontal membrane connects your jaw to the surrounding bone. Gentle pressure to the periodontal membrane remodels the bone around the teeth, allowing the teeth to move into their new positions.
Throughout your treatment with braces, the gentle, consistent force gradually moves your teeth into alignment. While we offer numerous different treatment options, they all observe this fundamental principle.
Since metal braces are not removable, they are working around the clock to straighten teeth, making treatment reliable and more efficient. Metal braces are also often a more affordable option for many people.
While metal braces often get a bad rap for being clunky and noticeable, modern metal braces are more inconspicuous than ever. They can also be a stylish accessory to your look! The elastics that secure the wire in place come in many different colors to customize your appearance.
