Traditional Metal braces are popular with children and teens, and are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. Traditional metal braces feature two main components: the brackets that are placed on each tooth and the arch wire that is threaded through them. As the wire applies pressure to one side of the tooth, the jawbone on the other side gives way. This causes the tooth to move and new bone to grow behind it. Elastics (rubber bands) are used in conjunction with braces, exerting a constant very light force to move teeth. Elastics must be worn at all times and changed every day in order to maintain the proper force.
Patient’s who have severe crowding and misalignment of teeth need fixed braces to improve smile .
