How does a teeth straightening device work?
This depends on the device itself and whether it is a fixed divide or removable. In general, fixed devices, which are attached to teeth via brackets and wires are attached to these brackets work by pulling teeth into their new position.
Some traditional options require a dentist to manipulate the wires every few weeks to pull teeth into their new position gradually over time. Other options, such as Six Month Smiles is a more automated option, where the wire that we used has a memory and it gradually and constantly moves back to this position over the course of 6 months after it has been fitted to your teeth.
Removable devices, such as the popular Invisalign treatment works a little differently by pushing teeth into their new position. An aligner is worn over teeth for a recommended 22 hours every day, gently forcing teeth into a slightly new position and holding them there. After a couple of weeks, a new aligner is worn which pushes teeth that little bit more into their correct position. After a year or two, you can enjoy a perfectly straightened smile.
The direction and amount that we move teeth is predetermined in these situations but with a fixed device, we have more flexibility to our approach, making it more suitable for the complex cases.
