We know the basics that braces are there to help with teeth straightening and alignment but the question is, how does it actually work? First of all, clear braces function the same way as metallic braces, the only difference between the two are the aesthetics as metallic braces are so visible in your mouth compared to clear ones which are made from translucent ceramic. When it comes to function, there is a backbone for these brace called the “arch wire” which runs along the teeth in the jaw. An arch wire is a long steel wire that exerts pressure on the teeth to push or pull it onto the right direction using brackets. These brackets are connected to the teeth using orthodontic bands
