How braces work on teeth

When braces are fixed on teeth they apply continuous pressure on the teeth and the jaw bones. With this pressure on the bones the jaw starts taking new positions. Braces should be fitted very carefully selecting the right amount of pressure at right place. It is recommended to choose an experienced orthodontist, who has good experience in fitting braces and other orthodontic devices.

Procedure for fixing braces

Braces have a small square shaped metal, called brackets that are attached in front of the teeth with orthodontic bands.  Orthodontic bands are wrapped around the tooth to provide control. Some dentists avoid bands and use some binding material. In order to attach brackets with each other, arch wires are used. These arch wires will direct the movement of teeth. Ligatures a tiny elastic band model ring holds arch to brackets. On last tooth a buccal tube is placed for holding the arch wire tight. Sometimes springs are also used in order to apply right pressure on upper teeth or lower teeth. Different type of separators will also be used in order to create necessary gap between them. When the required gap is created they will be removed. If there is severe deformation orthodontists may also use other orthodontic devices such as headgear to straighten the teeth. Duration of braces is depends on the gap that needs to be filled.

When you are undergoing teeth alignment with braces in Lansdale, it is important to visit the dentist periodically. The orthodontist will check the position of the braces and make necessary corrections, if required. He will also examine your mouth for signs of plaque build-up and clean the teeth professionally.
