Orthodontic braces are appliances attached to the teeth and are made of
metal, ceramic or plastic. They place a constant gentle force on the
teeth in a controlled direction which results in the teeth moving into
a corrected position.
This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal
band and bracket are placed around each tooth. Todays braces are
less visible, more hygienic and easier to clean. You can choose brackets
that are clear, metallic color or gold, which are stainless steel braces
coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.
You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in the brackets.
Wires are also less noticeable and the latest materials move teeth faster
with less discomfort to patients.
