Many people are eager to get their teeth straightened, but really have no idea how braces work or how they help to create a beautiful smile. Wired Orthodontics wants to teach you the mechanics behind braces, so that you can better understand why your treatment is truly so amazing!

 

How Braces Work

 

Braces in Toronto, ON  are composed of several parts, which all work together to move the teeth by applying pressure. While of course the braces parts collectively work to guide the bone and teeth to the proper positioning, they each play their own specific role as well. The brackets are the small square pieces that attach firmly to the front of the teeth. The brackets act as an anchor for the archwires. The archwires are the metal wires that stretch over the row of teeth. They help to guide the movement of the teeth, pulling them gently to the right shape and space. The elastics or rubber bands, if you have them, are attached to hooks and work between the upper and lower teeth to achieve proper alignment. All of these components together allow Dr. Nalbandian to help patients near the Toronto, ON area attain straight teeth and better alignment. A little pressure goes a long way!

 

How Retainers Work

 

Retainers from Wired Orthodontics are an important part of orthodontic treatment in Toronto, ON. Retainers come in many shapes and sizes, and can be removable or permanent. Regardless of the type, retainers at Wired Orthodontics work to keep the teeth in their proper positions. Once the braces come off, teeth begin to shift. Retainers stabilize the bones and gums so that the teeth stay firmly in their beautiful new places. Retainers at times may be a little painful since they are forcing movement of the teeth, but don’t worry, the pain will go away and just means that your retainer is working properly.

 

How to Get These Appliances to Work for You

 

So, now that you know how these orthodontic treatment systems work, you may be wondering what they can do for you. Dr. Nalbandian says that braces can solve a huge range of orthodontic problems. In addition to crooked teeth, braces help with “malocclusion” or incorrect bite. If you suffer from overbite, underbite, openbite, or other bite problems, braces can be your solution. Braces can also help to increase your oral health. By having straight teeth, less food and bacteria will become trapped, lowering the risk for gum disease. Additionally, better bites guarantee better jaw health, and proper chewing, which is beneficial to overall body health. If braces in Toronto, ON sound like they might be a good fit for you, set up a consultation with Wired Orthodontics. Dr. Nalbandian will meet with you to assess your specific needs, and will help create a plan that will get braces to suit your goals and your lifestyle. Or, if you have recently come out of orthodontic treatment and need to look into retention, Wired Orthodontics will be happy to help with this as well.
