What Are Braces and How Do They Work?

The term braces refers to an appliance that improves your bite pattern. Braces are used to guide your teeth into a more natural position. Over time they restore your smile to its ideal alignment.  

Braces technology is lightyears ahead of the uncomfortable appliances you may remember from growing up. Modern innovations have made it easy for teens and adults to achieve a glowing smile. 

Lund Orthodontics offers many premium options, including clear braces, self-ligating braces, Invisalign, and metal braces! During your free exam, we will narrow down the best braces option for your needs.

Types Of Braces Available

There’s never been a better time to refresh your smile! Whether you are curious about braces for your teen or for yourself, we have the perfect solution for you! 

Learn more about the braces options at Lund Orthodontics:


Clear Braces

Made of a durable ceramic material, clear braces are transparent and blend seamlessly with your teeth for discreet treatment. 

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces do not require restrictive elastic ties. This innovative system uses ultra-light forces that allow for shorter treatment times, fewer adjustments, and less discomfort.

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are a tried and true method of smile correction. These braces offer a stylish way to rejuvenate your smile with results that last a lifetime!


Invisalign is a nearly invisible appliance that works without wires or brackets. As an Invisalign Diamond practice, we know how to get lasting results with aligners. Both teens and adults can enjoy the freedom of Invisalign. 

Benefits of Braces Treatment

There are many reasons why people seek out an orthodontist. Treatment can help boost your confidence and can even improve your outlook. The advantages of a beautiful smile go well beyond aesthetic benefits, though! 

Here are some of the positives to restoring your smile with braces:

Stronger Teeth

Braces help patients achieve a more confident smile with a lifelong, healthy bite. With proper preventative maintenance and regular at-home cleaning, braces can even reduce the chance of cavities and periodontal disease.

Less Pain

A misaligned jaw can lead to pain, chronic headaches, fatigue, and excessive tooth wear. Braces can help properly align your jaw and decrease the uncomfortable tension of a misaligned bite.

Better Overall Health

Gaps and crowding in teeth can lead to problems chewing, bleeding, and painful gums. Teeth with symmetrical bites are easier to maintain and less likely to develop chipping or cavities.
