I'm ecstatic with the customer service ranging from the front desk, phone calls, emails, e-cards, the work and fun personality of the hygienists, dr. Davis, and most of all, the progress with my teeth!

Dr. Dale has treated all 3 of my boys. We were extremely happy with the service and results on all 3. We have and will still continue to recommend Davis & Davis to others.

We couldn't be happier with the service we are receiving for our daughters treatment.

Dr. Dale was very patient and took his time to be sure my daughter's smile was just right. This was a very tricky case since her teeth moved exceptionally fast. The end result (for both of my children) is beautiful.

Parts of Braces

Appliance:
Anything your orthodontist attaches to your teeth that moves your teeth or changes the shape of your jaw.
Archwire:
The metal wire that acts as a track to guide your teeth as they move. It is changed periodically throughout treatment as your teeth move to new positions.
Band:
A metal ring that is cemented to your tooth, going completely around it. Bands provide a way to attach brackets to your teeth.
Bond:
The seal created by orthodontic cement that holds your appliances in place.
Bracket:
A metal or ceramic part cemented ("bonded") to your tooth that holds your archwire in place.
Coil Spring:
A spring that fits between your brackets and over your archwire to open space between your teeth.
Elastic (Rubber Band):
A small rubber band that is hooked between different points on your appliance to provide pressure to move your teeth to a new position.
Elastic Tie:
The tiny rubber band that fits around your bracket to hold the archwire in place. They come in a variety of colors.
Headgear:
Headgear uses an external wire apparatus known as a facebow to gently guide the growth of your face and jaw by moving your teeth into proper position. The force is applied to the facebow by a spring-loaded neck strap or head strap. The straps have a safety release that disconnects if the facebow is pulled or snagged.
Headgear Tube:

Hook:
A welded or removable arm to which elastics are attached.
Ligature:

Mouthguard:
A device that protects your mouth from injury when you participate in sports or rigorous activities.
Palatal Expander:
A device that makes your upper jaw wider.
Retainer:
An appliance that is worn after your braces are removed, the retainer attaches to your upper and/or lower teeth to hold them in place. Some retainers are removable, while others are bonded to the tongue-side of several teeth.
Separator or Spacer:
A small rubber ring that creates space between your teeth before the bands are attached.
Tie Wire:
A fine wire that is twisted around your bracket to hold the archwire in place.
