Braces are comprised of two principal elements: the wire and brackets.
The arch wire is the slim wire that you notice spread all across your teeth right through the brackets. The metal brackets are carefully introduced on your teeth, and it’s the slim wire that exerts a gentle force on the teeth and affects them. The brackets help push your teeth into the right position by the steady, gentle pressure of the archwire over a given period. In other words, it can take anywhere from many months to a couple of years before ultimately moving into the right position.
Braces are the most prevalent, and they indeed cost the smallest. Besides, they are highly effective, and the outcome is fantastic.
