How Metal Braces Work

Metal braces apply gentle, consistent pressure based on the personalized treatment plan developed by Dr. Cox to help you get a straighter and healthier smile.

As you wear your braces, the archwires and brackets work together to move your teeth into the correct alignment.

Regular adjustment appointments at our Rome office ensure your treatment progresses smoothly, bringing you closer to your dream smile.

Here are the materials used with modern metal braces:

Elastic Ties/O-Rings/Ligatures/Colors

Tiny rubber rings or bands attach the archwire to the brackets. They come in various colors and provide flexibility—and personality.


Slender wires connect the brackets and apply gentle pressure to guide your teeth into their ideal positions.

These wires play a vital role in alignment, ensuring consistent and effective tooth movement throughout your treatment.


Also known as rubber bands, elastics are sometimes used with metal braces to correct bite irregularities. They create additional force to align your jaws properly and improve your bite. Dr. Cox will determine if elastics are necessary for your specific case.


Dr. Cox attaches small metal brackets to the front surface of your teeth.

These brackets are the anchors for your orthodontic treatment, allowing precise control and gradual movement of your teeth.


These small separators go between your teeth to create space for attaching the metal braces. They are typically placed a few days before your braces installation appointment and removed when the braces are applied.
