How do braces straighten crooked teeth?

Braces use constant, gentle pressure, which over time, move teeth into their proper positions. Your braces are at work every moment of your orthodontic treatment. The two main components of your braces are: the brackets that are placed on your teeth and the main archwire that connects them. Please feel free to call us at West Islip Office Phone Number 631-661-6202 to schedule a a consultation.  There is no fee for our consultation.

Different Types of Braces

Metal braces. These braces are much smaller than ever before. Kids love using different colors of ligature ties.

Clear ceramic braces. These braces are translucent.  You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them. Yet, because they are a ceramic material, they are more fragile. 

Dr. Tichler and Dr. Abraham also treat many of their patients with Invisalign. These are clear braces for teens and adults.
