All About Braces At Blanchette & Bates Family Orthodontics
Traditional braces are fixed orthodontic appliances, consisting of a system of brackets and wires, that apply gentle forces to slowly and safely move your teeth to the positions desired by your orthodontist.
These orthodontic workhorses have a long history of successful treatment and modern braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more esthetic than ever before.
Brackets, made of high-grade stainless steel, will be bonded to the front of each of your teeth with a composite resin (similar to filling material) and essentially act like a handle on the tooth.
A wire is inserted into the brackets that interact with each bracket to guide your teeth to the position desired by our expert doctor.
