How do traditional braces work?
Traditional braces are made of high-quality stainless steel or titanium. They consist of brackets, ligature elastics and an archwire. The bracket is bonded to each tooth, and the ligature elastics hold the archwire to the brackets. Your orthodontist will adjust the wire to appropriately form your teeth over time. The force of this pressure will slowly shift each tooth until they reach their proper positions.
