Braces use constant, gentle pressure to move teeth into their proper positions and are constructed of either metal or ceramic that attach to each tooth. Once installed, your braces are at work every moment of your orthodontic treatment.

The wire rests in the bracket and as it tries to return to its original shape it applies pressure to move your teeth. With pressure on one side from the archwire the bone on the other side gives way, eventually causing the tooth to move and new bone growth behind the tooth.
