Braces for Adults


How do braces work?

Your teeth are cushioned by the tissue of your gums, AKA your Gingiva. Underneath your gums, you have a Periodontal Membrane, which shields the lower half of your teeth. As your teeth are bone, the two “prong-like” portions of your teeth are fittingly called the Alveolar Bones.

The treatment works by constantly putting pressure on your teeth, slowly encouraging them to move into the correct position by putting pressure on the Periodontal Membrane. One side of this membrane will stretch out, allowing the teeth to move. The bars and bands will then push it from the other side — creating enough space for the teeth to safely shift. In fact, it’s the archwire that puts most of the pressure on your teeth, while many of the other parts (like the brackets) work to hold it in place.
