Treatment Metal Braces

Traditional Braces

Silver colored metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, and one of the most effective tools we have for correcting your smile. These metal braces or brackets are composed of durable, long-lasting metals like stainless steel. They are bonded to the front of your teeth and serve as an anchor for wires that will move your teeth. As you move along in your treatment, the wires will be changed out to straighten your teeth to the desired result. Sometimes, your doctor may prescribe elastics or rubber bands to be worn during treatment to help correct your bite.

Metal braces are also popular due to patients being able to change the color of the elastics wrapped around the brackets.

These elastics are changed at every appointment, and there is an entire palette of colors to choose from. This is an exciting way for patients to show off their personality by picking their favorite colors, their favorite sports team or even coordinate with an upcoming holiday! Silver, gray and white elastics are also available for adults who want a more neutral look.

Traditional braces are a good option for kids, teens and adults.

They are the most popular orthodontic option for kids because of their durability. If you are worried that the metal will irritate your child’s mouth, there is no need for concern. There will likely be some mild irritation at the start of your child’s treatment, but the inside of his or her mouth will get used to the feeling and soon they will hardly notice the braces are there. The metal brackets and wires used today are small and sleek, making long-term discomfort a thing of the past.
