How Do Braces Work?

How do braces work

Braces are an orthodontic device designed to gradually straighten your teeth, and align your jaw to create a confident smile.

With traditional braces, brackets are attached to your teeth and connected with an arch wire, which will gradually guide your teeth into alignment over time.

There are many forms of braces available at Hawthorn Orthodontics, as well as braces alternatives such as Invisalign.

The Types of Braces We Offer

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional Metal Braces are a common orthodontic treatment method requested by patients, and recommended by orthodontists.

Metal braces work by aligning your teeth and jaw using a stainless steel brackets, and wires.

Lingual Incognito Braces

Lingual Braces are one of our most popular styles at Hawthorn Orthodontics. Unlike other forms of braces, Lingual Braces are fitted to the back of the teeth, hiding them from view when smiling.

This discreet braces option is a popular option for professional adults, and allows you to discreetly undergo braces treatment without any obvious signs when you smile!

Lightforce Braces

Lightforce was the first 3D printed brace, made with a highly sophisticated 3D printer. 

Each brace is custom-printed to the shape and position of every tooth. 3D brackets are small and tooth-coloured, making them a more discreet option.

Lightforce Clear Aligners

Clear Braces

Clear Braces offer a modern, discreet orthodontic option. Clear Braces, also referred to as Ceramic Braces, offer the same unique technology found in traditional metal braces, with the only difference being that the brackets fitted to the teeth are made from a clear, tooth coloured ceramic material.

Gold Braces

Gold Braces offer a unique, stylish approach to orthodontics. Gold braces are traditional Metal Braces, plated with gold to provide a custom look.

Gold Braces offer all the same great benefits as traditional Metal Braces for creating your desired smile.
