This type of teeth-straightening procedure requires metal brackets be placed on each tooth. A thin metal wire connects the brackets, slowly shifting the teeth into the preferred position, and assisting the straightening process. These braces typically need to remain in place between 9 months to 2 years, sometimes longer. After the process, a retainer is used to maintain the patients’ teeth.
