Modern braces are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious "metal-mouth" braces than many adults remember from their childhood. Metal or silver are the most commonly used braces in Orthodontic treatments. The braces, or bands, are bonded directly to the tooth surface to hold the connecting arch wires. It’s these wires which provide the method for the Orthodontist to move your teeth. Metal or elastic ties are used to hold the wires in place.
If you are sensitive to metal, nickel-free brackets are available. Elastic ties come in a variety of colors, so you can choose different colors at every appointment. Also, new heat-activated archwires use your body’s heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.
