Braces: Proven to transform Smiles

But since this isn’t a perfect world, here at Beam Orthodontics we will help you make your world feel perfect. With so many unique smiles coming and going, we are prepared to help everyone leave our office fully satisfied with their braces.
Sometimes braces aren’t just for straightening teeth. There are cases where patients need to wear braces to fix their teeth because it causes them jaw pain to eat, talk, or just in general. Orthodontists have been using braces for over 100 years because they are guaranteed to work.
What Are Braces?
Braces are made of three components:
(1) Brackets that are glued onto your teeth,
(2) Arch wires that go through each individual bracket that was placed,
(3) Ligatures–which are tiny rubber bands that come in a variety of colors–hold the wire to the brackets causing your teeth to slowly move together over time. They can also come in a metal form, which your orthodontist will tighten during each visit.
While wearing braces, your teeth will loosen up at the root and begin to adjust to their correct form.
