All the braces are attached to the teeth and grooves of brackets fixed Arm made of an alloy of nickel and titanium. This material has a "shape memory" — if an arc curving from the alloy, it always tends to assume its original shape. Thus arc gradually "pulls" teeth "builds" them in a row.
The capabilities of modern braces
