As the most common orthodontic treatment, traditional, metal braces are an excellent way to transform your smile. This braces option has stood the test of time because it is more effective at treating extreme dental overcrowding than other options, such as clear braces or clear aligners. Traditional braces are also much more affordable than some alternative treatment options. Metal braces can correct several orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Bite issues, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite

Traditional braces are made up of a system of metal brackets, wires, and tiny rubber bands. The brackets are placed on the front of your teeth and connect to each other with wires and bands. As our orthodontist adjusts the wires, the braces gradually guide your teeth into their proper positions. Throughout your treatment, you will need to visit our office on a regular basis, where we can make the proper adjustments to your braces that will eventually lead to a straighter, healthier smile.

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, metal braces are now sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable than the ones from years past.
