Braces are a fixed orthodontic appliance. Special brackets are bonded to your teeth, and small wires are threaded through the brackets. Braces will exert a gentle, steady pressure on your teeth to guide them into place. As your teeth adjust their position, periodic adjustments will ensure a continued improvement.
Unlike the heavy brackets and wires of old-fashioned braces, your options today offer a multitude of choices. Modern braces are more streamlined, lighter, and there are options for clear brackets to make them more discreet, colorful elastics to make them pop, and more!
