Are your teeth crowded, crooked, or tilted? Crowded teeth are not only a cosmetic issue, but can also lead to other more serious dental issues down the road. It is important that crowded teeth are straightened before permanent damage has been done to the teeth. Braces and other orthodontic options can be used to straighten your teeth, so it is important that you speak to a dentist to find the best option for your treatment.
Traditional braces use an arch wire to exert constant force on teeth to gradually move them into a straight alignment. At regular tightening appointments, the brackets on teeth are adjusted individually to alter the forces pulling them into place, typically by changing ligatures, the small rubber bands associated with braces. The arch wire can also be replaced with different sized wires to increase or decrease the constant force used to move the teeth.
