Orthodontic Appliances

  • Orthodontic Appliances - Archwire

    A metal wire which is attached to your brackets to move your teeth.

  • Orthodontic Appliances - Bands

    Bands are a ring of metal, which fit around the molars and sometimes premolars. The bands are selected from a range of sixes in order to find the tightest fitting band. The bands are sealed in position using dental cement that contains fluoride to prevent any decalcification during treatment.

  • Orthodontic Appliances - Brackets

    Brackets are the small metal or ceramic modules attached to each tooth. They serve as guides to move the teeth and hold the archwire in place.

  • Orthodontic Appliances - Elastics

    Elastics or rubber bands for braces help move the upper and lower teeth relative to each other, ultimately achieving a better bite. The orthodontic rubber bands are typically effective for correcting overbites, underbites, or other types of alignments of the jaw. They are also useful for moving a tooth out of alignment or to close a space in the mouth.
