Brackets are small metal squares securely attached to each tooth. Modern brackets are sleeker and less obtrusive, yet more effective than ever.

  • Purpose: Brackets serve as anchors for the archwire, guiding teeth into position.
  • Material: These are made from high-grade stainless steel to offer strength and durability.


The archwire threads through the brackets to create a path for your teeth to follow.

  • Purpose: This wire applies gentle, consistent pressure to guide teeth into their correct alignment.
  • Advancements: Modern archwires use special materials that react to your body heat. This makes them more comfortable and shortens the time you need braces.

Elastic Ligatures

Often known as the colorful rubber bands on braces, elastic ligatures play a key role in your orthodontic treatment.

  • Purpose: They secure the archwire to each bracket, ensuring the wire remains in the correct position to move your teeth effectively.
  • Variety: Available in both rubber and metal options, elastic ligatures can add a personal touch to braces with a wide selection of colors.
  • Maintenance: During every orthodontic check-up, Dr. Matt and our team will inspect, adjust, or replace these ligatures to keep your treatment on track.

Dr. Matt uses his orthodontics skills to make every part of your braces work better for you. From start to finish, he makes sure your treatment is comfortable and clear.
