Orthodontic appliances are built from metal, ceramic or plastic, and may be removable or brackets that are bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. The days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth are gone! This is the perfect time to wear braces with great advancements in orthodontic care. With so many options to mix and match how your braces look, you couldn't ask for a better smile while trying to get the perfect smile you have always wanted. You no longer have to worry about wires invading your smile with the latest enhancements allowing a less noticeable wire. Additionally, for the first time, you can now enjoy braces without the discomfort as the improvements to the materials allow the teeth to move faster.
