Milwaukee Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno Publishes a New Article Sharing How Braces Work to Straighten the Teeth

Tony Cigno, Wisconsin family dentist, explains the process of how braces work to move teeth.

Greenfield, WI — October 6, 2016 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “Get Moving! How Braces Straighten Your Teeth…”

In the article, Dr. Cigno starts off by examining the different braces options for straightening the teeth. Then, he gives a broad overview of how braces work from a broad overview perspective.

As he says, “To understand how braces work to straighten teeth and realign the bite, you must understand the periodontal ligament.”

Dr. Cigno goes on to explain the composition of the periodontal ligament, how it holds the teeth in place like a hammock, and how braces utilize the natural process of this ligament for bite correction.

He then gives specifics on how braces work, starting with, “Normally, the tension of biting sends a “message” through your periodontal ligament and the cells respond by dissolving and creating new bone and cementum. Orthodontics uses this process, combined with external orthodontic appliances that manipulate it, with purpose and design to create the movement of the teeth that results in desired alignment.”

From there, he gives additional details on the exact mechanism that occurs.
