You deserve a smile that looks and functions great! Braces in Coral Springs are orthodontic devices designed to correct teeth and jaw misalignment. Although braces are more commonly seen in adolescents, adults can wear them too! Let’s find out how braces can improve your smile.


How Do Braces Work?

What Are The Different Types of Braces?

Nowadays, we’re lucky when it comes to orthodontics! That’s because there are so many different types of braces. Custom fit to your needs, you can always opt for traditional metal brackets and wires. Or, maybe you want to be a little more discreet. Ceramic brackets work just like metal ones, but they’re clear so as not to be as obvious. Don’t worry though – kids can still have fun picking out different colored rubber bands.  

Lastly, for many, clear aligners are preferred. Invisalign clear aligners are oftentimes a great choice for teens and adults who want to feel as comfortable and confident as possible during orthodontic treatment.

How Do Braces Move Your Teeth?

Braces and clear aligners use constant pressure on your teeth for long periods of time to move them into the direction planned by your orthodontist. Eventually, your bite will adapt to this pressure. Most of us think that our teeth are directly connected to our jawbone but the truth is, they are surrounded by a tissue that controls their position. When pressure is added through braces, the tissue underneath your gums is able to move your teeth. By the end of treatment, you’ll not only look great but your bite will function better as well.
