How do braces straighten crooked teeth?
Braces use steady gentle pressure over time to move
teeth into their proper positions They don't look like
they're doing much just sitting there, but in fact,
every moment of your orthodontic treatment, there is
something happening in your mouth.
The brackets we place on your teeth and the main arch .
wire that connects them, are the two main components.
The bracket is a piece of specially shaped metal or Nelson Hersh
ceramic that we affix to each tooth. Then we bend the
arch wire to reflect your "ideal" bite - what we want you Licensed Specialist
to look like after treatment. The wire threads through
the brackets and, as the wire tries to return to its original shape,
it applies soft pressure to actually move your teeth. Braces use steady,
gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper
positions. Thanks to new materials and procedures, all this happens much
quicker and gentler than ever before. It's kind of an engineering miracle.

Rubber bands or elastics contribute a lot to straighten teeth. The are marvels
of physics. Attached to your braces, elastics exert the force that creates the
right amount of pressure to move teeth in directions that the braces alone
can't. Its important to wear your elastics as prescribed and change them
• every day so the force is constant which the teeth like. A lack of consistency
in wearing rubber bands can bring treatment to a standstill, or discomfort,
and who wants to do that to themselves. Teeth never fail to move when elas-
tics are worn consistently as directed. As for bouncing an elastic off someone
across the room, it will happen (don't worry, your aim will improve)
