Braces involve a system of brackets and wires to align your teeth and improve your bite.
How Do Braces Work?
Your braces apply gentle pressure that stimulates a natural biological process called bone remodeling. This allows the teeth to move in the precise direction your appliance guides them. Depending on your needs, Dr. Durschlag may add auxiliaries like rubber bands to your braces to help simultaneously align your bite.
Braces Don’t Have an Age Limit
The majority of patients can get braces. The treatment option is effective for addressing a wide variety of smile concerns. Braces aren’t just for kids and teens either; we have a number of adult braces patients at our practice too
For some patients, braces are more convenient than aligners since they’re bonded to the teeth and can’t be misplaced.
