How Braces Straighten Teeth
Braces straighten teeth by applying constant pressure in a certain direction over time. When our Glendale orthodontist attaches the brackets, they are placed at a very specific spot on each tooth. This placement of the brackets is semi-permanent, and they are connected by an archwire which runs across the front of your teeth. Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, the archwire connected to each bracket will appear to be straight. Additionally, these archwires are held on the brackets by rubber bands called ligatures. You are able to choose whatever color you want, making it especially fun around holidays or special events with your metal braces!
Possible Side Effects That Can Happen With Braces
Keep in mind that each patient and each mouth is different. Even though something is listed here as a possible side effect, you may personally never experience any issues at all!
Always listening to the advice of our Glendale orthodontist is your best bet for success! Keep your ultimate goal in mind so you can stay motivated to take good care of your teeth during orthodontic treatment.
