How do braces work?
Metal braces straighten your teeth using a series of metal brackets, archwires, and small elastic bands. A bracket will be fitted to the front of each tooth with a wire running between them. This will all be held together with the elastics.
During treatment, Dr Sriram will adjust the archwire, to apply gentle pressure on your teeth and steer them into the proper position. This should be done regularly for best results - so try hard not to miss your appointments!
