Now Offering Traditional & Clear Braces For San Antonio, TX
If you have a misaligned bite or crooked teeth, Dr. Quillian may recommend dental braces. Braces are appliances that put continuous pressure on your teeth to move them into the desired positions. Usually, braces take 1-3 years to correct a crooked smile, depending on factors like gum health and the distance the teeth must travel. During this time, our friendly cosmetic dentists will likely suggest that you visit our team at least once a month to ensure that the process is working properly and to make any necessary adjustments.
How do braces work?
Braces require several components to work properly. Some of these components include:
- Brackets: Brackets are small squares that are bonded to the teeth. Brackets are necessary for holding the wire in place.
- Arch wires: Arch wires attach to the brackets and are responsible for properly guiding the movement of the teeth.
- Ties: Ties are small rubber rings that attach the wire to the brackets.
