These are not the same bulky, unpleasant braces of the past. Metal orthodontics have come a long way, and are a great alternative for patients who want to correct their teeth but are not candidates for other types of orthodontic treatments.
Our traditional braces require metal brackets that are connected by a wire. Through periodic tightening, pressure is applied and your teeth are gradually adjusted. Metal brackets are the most common form of standard orthodontics, however other options may be available. Lingual braces are one example of alternative metal orthodontics. They are attached to the back of the teeth, making them less noticeable than traditional braces, but providing similar results.
Some of the benefits of traditional braces include:
- More affordable than other options
- Design innovations that make them more comfortable
- Upgraded appearance makes them more aesthetically pleasing
- Metal braces are durable
You’ll need to take good care of your braces, which may mean avoiding sugary, crunchy, or hard foods. We’ll show you the correct way to keep your braces clean and free of plaque buildup. Speak to our dentists to determine which style of traditional braces are right for you.
Straighter Teeth for All Ages
Braces aren’t just for teenagers! No matter what age you are, you’ll see a dramatic change in your smile when you opt for orthodontic treatment. Depending on your specific course of treatment, traditional braces are worn from one to three years on average, which is an investment in a lifetime of healthier smiles.
