Braces apply pressure to your teeth continuously to slowly move them in the desired direction. As your teeth move, the supporting bone changes shape. Braces are made up of brackets, orthodontic bands, arch wires. Brackets are metal or tooth-colored squares that are bonded to the front of each tooth or attached to orthodontic bands. Arch wires are held in place by brackets and act as tracks to direct the movement of your teeth.
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Our treatments are designed to cater to different age groups, and to give you the overall results that you want.
