Traditional treatment with reliable results
Braces have been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians, but the appliances we use today are nothing like their predecessors. Modern braces are smaller, sleeker, and more efficient than ever before.
How do braces work?
Braces are made up of three components: brackets, elastics, and archwires. The brackets attach to each individual tooth, with the metal archwire running through them. The elastics are what hold it all together!
At each adjustment appointment, Dr. Narula will place small bends in your archwires and adjust your elastics so that gentle pressure is applied to guide your teeth into proper alignment.
Types of braces we offer
At Center for Orthodontics, you can choose metal braces, ceramic braces, or a mix of the two!
Metal braces are what come to mind when most people think of “braces”. The brackets and wires are both made of medical-grade stainless steel. Durable and affordable, metal braces make a great choice for even severe orthodontic issues.
Ceramic braces have metal wires, but the brackets are made of tooth-colored or clear ceramic instead of metal. These braces are more popular with adults since they discreetly blend in with the color of your smile.
