Braces put a constant, gentle force upon your teeth in a carefully controlled direction. The braces slowly move your teeth to the correct position. Over the years, the technology in orthodontics has greatly improved. Today’s braces at Morgan Orthodontics can be made of a variety of materials, such as metal, ceramic or plastic. The wires that are used are far less noticeable than they used to be and, because they use the latest materials, are able to move the teeth far faster and with less discomfort than they previously could.
