What Are Traditional Metal Braces?

Traditional metal braces have been the go-to for Phase 1 treatment for years and they’re more effective than ever, thanks to advancements in dental technology. These braces consist of metal brackets that are attached to each tooth and connected by arch wires. The constant pressure from the wires helps in tooth movement, guiding your teeth to their proper position.

Why Choose Metal Braces?

Metal braces are a fantastic option for treating a variety of orthodontic issues like crowded teeth, misaligned teeth, and jaw problems. They’re durable, reliable, and perfect for younger patients in their Phase 1 treatment.

How Do Metal Braces Compare to Other Braces?

You might be wondering how traditional metal braces stack up against other options like lingual braces, ceramic braces, or even Invisalign treatment. While each type of braces has its pros and cons, traditional metal braces are often just as effective for complex orthodontic problems and are our preferred choice for Phase 1 treatment.

The Treatment Process

First, we’ll take a 3D dental video of your teeth. Then, our orthodontist will attach the metal brackets to your teeth using special glue. Arch wires are then threaded through the brackets. You’ll need to visit our orthodontist regularly for adjustment appointments, where the wires will be tightened to keep up the pressure on your teeth.

Pick Your Colors While Wearing Braces

Choosing colors is the BEST part of having braces! Yes, you’ll have to avoid certain hard foods and gum that could damage the braces. But on the flip side, you’ll be on your way to a beautiful smile and excellent oral health. Plus, those rubber bands we mentioned earlier? You can switch up the colors to match your mood or even your outfit!

Aftercare and Maintenance

Once your braces are off, you’ll likely wear a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in their new position. It’s also crucial to maintain good dental health practices to avoid issues like cavities and permanent white spots on the teeth called decalcification.
