Traditional Braces

 

 

 Traditional braces require our team to place high-grade metal brackets on each individual tooth. A wire runs through each bracket allowing for full control of each tooth in all planes of space.  Then patients get to choose their own colors that will secure the wire to the braces! Many patients actually prefer metal brackets for the opportunity to choose fun colors to support their favorite team or celebrate an upcoming holiday!

Although braces may seem “old-fashioned”, this method of aligning teeth is tried and true and the most predictable way to achieve a beautiful smile. The versatility of the wires and brackets along with the material properties allows us to much better control the movement of your teeth in all three planes of space.

Yes! Clear braces function in a similar fashion as metal braces. They are an esthetic alternative made of a ceramic material. Click here for more information on clear braces.
