Nowadays, ceramic braces for teeth can also be used.
The dentist will cement the brackets/ braces to the teeth and places an arch wire onto the brackets and elastic bands are tied to each bracket to hold the arch wire.
This whole process will last at least 2-3 hours. After placement of the brackets, patients are appointed to comeback every 3 to 4 weeks for adjustment of wires and elastics, which will take only at least 20 to 30 minutes.
For diagnosis purposes: study cast, panoramic x-ray, cephalometric x-ray, and oral and facial photographs. This also includes brackets, arch wire, cement, etchant, bonding agent, elastics and orthodontic instruments.
