Traditional braces (an orthodontic appliance) consist of metal wires, springs, brackets, and elastic bands and can straighten crooked teeth to provide our patients with the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. Braces work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth over time, slowly moving the teeth to the desired position. Most patients can expect to wear braces anywhere from one to three years. Once the braces have been removed, a retainer or similar appliance is often recommended to ensure your teeth remain straight and beautiful.
