Braces are a common and effective orthodontic treatment used to correct misaligned teeth and jaws. They consist of several components that work together to move your teeth into the desired position. At Imagine Orthodontic Studio, we are committed to offering you affordable braces options, helping you understand how braces work, and what to expect during your orthodontic treatment. Our goal is to create a welcoming and supportive environment where you feel confident and informed about your orthodontic journey.

The main three components in braces are brackets, archwires, and bands. Brackets are small metal or ceramic attachments that are bonded to the front surface of each tooth. Archwires are thin metal wires that connect the brackets and apply pressure to the teeth, guiding them into alignment. Bands are elastic or metal rings that wrap around the back molars to anchor the archwires.

The process of moving teeth with braces involves the application of continuous, gentle pressure. This pressure gradually shifts the teeth into the correct position over time. The movement occurs because of the remodeling of the bone surrounding the teeth. When pressure is applied, the bone on one side of the tooth breaks down, while new bone forms on the other side, allowing the tooth to move.

Adjustments are a crucial part of the braces process. During regular visits to Imagine Orthodontic Studio, our orthodontists will make necessary adjustments to the archwires and other components. These adjustments ensure that the pressure on your teeth is optimal and that your treatment is progressing as planned. It’s essential to attend all scheduled appointments to achieve the best results in the shortest amount of time.

Throughout the orthodontic treatment, you may experience some discomfort, especially after adjustments. This discomfort is typically mild and temporary, often described as a feeling of pressure or soreness. This is why at Imagine Orthodontic Studio we offer our patients the Imagine Synapse Dental Pain Eraser™. You can get instant relief from braces tightening thanks to Advanced Pulsewave Technology™. The Imagine Synapse Dental Pain Eraser is built into all of our braces treatment plans, so you get instant access to pain relief!

Braces are versatile and can address a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. The duration of treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and individual response to treatment. On average, most patients wear braces for one to three years. During this time, maintaining excellent oral hygiene is crucial. Brushing and flossing around the braces can be challenging, but our team will provide guidance and tools to help you keep your teeth and braces clean.
