So how do braces work?


Visits to the dentist will help decide whether braces are appropriate for you. X-rays and molds of the patient’s mouth can help dentists decide how to adjust braces in order to realign and straighten teeth.

Braces apply pressure to the teeth pushing them into place. This process is slow so not to ruin your jaw and surrounding teeth, meaning that most people have braces anywhere from 12 to 18 months. Dentists and orthodontists require periodic visits after braces are in place, allowing them to be readjusted and moving teeth further into place.

For fixed braces, each tooth has adhesive applied in order to bond brackets. Next, brackets have metal archwire placed through them before being fastened together by elastics, which can be different colors depending on your preferences. This archwire is the tool that allows for dentists to tighten the braces at each appointment.

In contrast, removable braces are more effective for people who need to make minor adjustments to teeth alignment and bites. Usually, they are plastic plates that cover the roof of your mouth connecting to several teeth. It uses springs and wires to slowly move teeth over time. Even though they are removable, most dentists recommend only taking them out too clean or perform an activity such as playing a woodwind instrument.
