Do you feel like you need teeth realignment? Braces can help! Braces aren’t just a brute force solution to crooked teeth. They work by using the anatomy of the jaw to realign teeth in a healthy and natural way. Here’s more information.
Braces work by compressing one side of the ligaments on your teeth, while at the same time stretching the ligaments on the other side of your teeth.
As the ligaments become compressed, the bone on that side loses blood support and becomes necrotic.
About 4 weeks after bonding, you may notice minor shifts in your teeth. A noticeable shift requires more time as it takes approximately 2-3 months for it to become apparent. Almost all people can permanently straighten their teeth using braces, which are both safe and effective. You may only need an orthodontist-prescribed retainer if your teeth are only slightly crooked or crowded.
