What gives braces their colors?
The colors come from the rubber ties that hold the orthodontic wire in the bracket. Think of the brackets as handles for your teeth. The wire is what actually moves the teeth and the ties are what holds everything together.
There are 2 types of ties: Individual ties and linked ties (powerchains). You’ll notice that people who have braces will go from individual ties to powerchains as treatment progresses. The powerchains help close spaces and keeps space from developing.
At our office we offer many colors and encourage our patients to get creative with their patterns. It’s a great way for our younger patients to express their personalities, celebrate holidays, and show school spirit.
