Question:

are brackets the same thing as just saying braces?

i'm getting on brackets tomorrow,and it confuses me becauseit makes me think i'm only getting the square things.but then its just saying your getting everything, like the wire and such.haaaaa, i'm dumb[:

Answer:

Brackets are the metal squares that the wires go through. They are glued or somehow stuck to your teeth. (I'm not exactly sure; there are different methods. Mine are glued.) They also have the little tiny rubber bands on them (you can pick the colors of the rubber bands for them), which hold the wire in place. Braces is a general term for all of the parts when they are put together on your teeth.

Brackets are the actual square things that stick to your teeth. Braces are like the entire thing - brackets, wires, spacers, etc.

brackets are just the square part that attach to your teeth and the connect by a wire. When they say brackets, they mean everything else.

brackets are the things that are put directly on your teeth and there are wires connecting themeverything together is known as bracesthough I don't think you'd just be getting brackets without wiresit's probably just referring to everything
