How Do Braces Work?
Traditional braces are an orthodontic appliance that’s comprised of multiple parts, including metal brackets, bands, and the arch wire. They all work together to provide a strategically calculated and subtle amount of pressure on your misaligned teeth to move them into their ideal positions. The brackets are glued to the surface of your teeth and secure the arch wire in place. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll visit Dr. Wehrkamp to have your braces tightened to make sure the arch wire doesn’t become loose and stop facilitating alignment.
