We tend to think of our teeth as being connected directly to our jawbone, making it hard to imagine how they can be moved. But underneath your gums is a membrane surrounded by your bones that roots your teeth to your jaw. This membrane controls the position of your teeth, and it responds to the pressure being put on your teeth by braces.
Getting braces doesn’t hurt during the appointment, and it takes between one to two hours for them to be installed. You may experience soreness for the first week you have braces as you adjust. Each time your braces are adjusted by your orthodontist, you may also be sore for a few days.
Types of braces:
1- Bracket adhesion
5- Buccal tube
7- Facebow headgear
Please consult with an orthodontist to understand how braces will straighten your teeth. An orthodontist will demonstrate how the braces will help align your specific teeth.
