How do braces work ?
In a nutshell, with the application of wires and elastics to the brace, areas of light compression or pressure is created on one side of the teeth, and light stretching on the other. This causes bone to be remodeled and allows the tooth to move in the direction of the light pressure.
It has been found that teeth move faster with light forces, and hence here at Brace Kraft Orthodontics, smaller size wires are used, initially,( which keeps this pressure to a minimum, as well as hastens treatment, keeping discomfort to a minimum) gradually increasing to full size wires.
