How do the orthodontic brackets and braces act?
The orthodontist makes the brackets stick to your teeth using composite resins and make it firm using light cure. The metal wire that is placed inside the brackets puts some pressure on your teeth to lead them to a proper direction. They are adjusted continuously for 4 to 6 weeks for 12 months to 24 months. After the removal of the brackets from your teeth, you are provided a retainer to make the teeth fixed in their positions.
