How Do Metal Braces Work?

How do metal braces function at Johnston Orthodontics? Dr. Johnston effortlessly shifts your teeth into ideal positions with this tried-and-true orthodontic treatment.

Here’s how we design your metal braces:

3-D Imaging

We'll start by capturing detailed images of your mouth, often using our cutting-edge iTero Element scanner. This swift scan lasts about 15 minutes and delivers a detailed 3-D view of your bite, which enables Dr. Johnston to design a treatment plan specifically for you.

Scheduling Appointments

Tweaks and touch-ups are milestones on your path to a perfect smile. Every few weeks, Dr. Johnston will adjust your archwire and keep an eye on your transformation. Occasionally, tools like rubber bands might join the mix to aid in the process.

The final destination? A captivating, gleaming smile you'll love to share.

Placing the Brackets

With these detailed images of your smile, Dr. Johnston will pinpoint the best position for each bracket based on whether a tooth needs to be angled or rotated to achieve the perfect alignment.

Installing the Wire

Dr. Johnston meticulously threads the archwire through each bracket so that it sits comfortably yet effectively. Throughout your treatment, Dr. Johnston will adjust the archwire to optimize the movement of your teeth.
