How Do Metal Braces Work?
All braces move teeth the same way. There’s nothing magical about it—it’s biology. Your body and your cells are doing the work. The surgical grade stainless steel braces (or brackets) are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth to act as handles for the wires to place force on the teeth that signals cells in your body to slowly move the teeth through the supporting bone. The cells don’t know or care what the braces are made out of or what they look like. Even with metal braces, the days of “metal mouth” are over because modern orthodontics has made the braces so small and comfortable compared to what they were years ago. Just ask your mom or grandpa what their braces looked like and they will tell you how well off we have it these days!
