Conventional Braces

How do traditional braces straighten teeth?

Conventional braces straighten teeth by exerting pressure on them. The shape of your jaw gradually realigns to conform to this pressure as the teeth are repositioned.

Utilizing the jaw's architecture, braces treatment moves teeth in a healthy, natural way. They are able to accomplish this because periodontal ligaments, which connect the tooth roots to the socket, hold your teeth to the jaw bone.

These ligaments provide as shock absorbers and permit slight tooth movement. Your ligaments compress when pressure is applied to your teeth, which causes the jaw bone to respond. The underlying bone structure develops stronger as your teeth acclimate to the strain of repositioning.

Following by Self-Ligating Orthodontics, this options is preferable to those who have severe and certain dental conditions. Self-Ligating mechanism promotes less pressure discomfort compared to Conventional system. It is taking shorter period in order to complete on your braces journey. Unlike Conventional brackets, Self-Ligating mechanism is like a lock-key system, which does not required any O-ring in order to secure the wire in place which promotes effective results.
