Whether you require traditional metal braces, clear aligners or lingual braces, our highly-skilled and experienced orthodontists will work closely with you to chart the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
How Do Orthodontic Braces Correct Misaligned Teeth?
Each bracket is affixed to a tooth with a special bond that keeps it in place throughout treatment. Once the brackets are in place, a wire is threaded through them and secured with tiny elastic bands, known as ligatures. Over time, the wire is adjusted to increase the pressure applied to the teeth gradually. This pressure activates cells in the bone surrounding each tooth, causing them to break down and rebuild to support the new tooth position.
In addition to the brackets and wires, many braces today also include small rubber bands, known as elastics, that connect the upper and lower arches. These elastics help further refine the teeth’ movement and can be adjusted to apply more or less pressure as needed.
While orthodontic treatment may require patience and commitment, the result is a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. Straight teeth don’t only look great, but they also make brushing and flossing easier, so they remain healthy. The expert dentists at Hammondville Dental will create a unique treatment plan customised to your personal needs and will give you the smile you were always dreaming of.
