Dr. James C. Arnold at Surfortho.com uses traditional braces for many cases. They are composed of brackets bonded to the surface of the tooth. These brackets serve as “handles” to help move the teeth over a period of time. This is done by applying light forces over a time. We use these appliances, with auxiliaries, such as elastics, headgear, and a variety of other options, to give us the best result we can obtain.
