How Do Teeth Move During The Braces Treatment?

The goal of braces treatment is to help patients lift their teeth. Braces move the teeth over time and provide a force that the orthodontist can control and regulate at each visit in the dental clinic at Braces have three main parts that provide strength to the teeth:

Bracket: It is made of metal or ceramic. They are glued to each tooth.

Curved wire: It is a thin metal wire that surrounds the teeth in each bracket. The thickness of the curved wire can sometimes be adjusted as needed by replacing it with a new wire.

Rubber band: It is a small colored rubber band that secures the bracket to the bow. Change the rubber band each time it comes off every time you visit the orthodontist.

The various cells and tissues that make up the periodontal ligament are involved in the movement of teeth. The force that the braces place on the teeth to move gradually stimulates the tissue cells and bone. The periodontal ligament attaches the tooth to the bone and helps the tooth to resist the pressure from the bite.

Apply a regulated force is the role of braces that moves the teeth into a better position. The brackets create pressure and tension on the tooth roots. The curvature uses adjustable force and moves the teeth in predictable directions. 

However, the teeth do not move immediately after the braces are installed. The force exerted during braces treatment begins to move cells and tissues in about two to three weeks.
