Even with all the changes in orthodontics over the past decade, one thing remains the same: metal braces are the most popular treatment option we offer. Not only are braces cost-effective and efficient, today’s metal braces are better than ever, with lower profile brackets and advanced archwire technology. It’s no wonder so many patients choose metal braces for their orthodontic treatment.
Metal braces are used to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, open-bites, and misaligned teeth with excellent results. Compared to ceramic brackets, metal braces are stronger, more durable, and less expensive; unlike clear plastic aligners, braces work 24/7 because they can’t be removed. These qualities make metal braces the best choice for our younger patients.
Treatment times for metal braces vary depending on the amount of correction needed. Every four to six weeks, you’ll come to an office for an appointment where we’ll adjust your archwires and replace the elastic ties that attach the wires to your brackets. During these visits, we’ll make sure your treatment is going as planned and that your teeth are moving into their new positions as expected. Upon completing your orthodontic treatment, we’ll provide you with a fixed or removable retainer to help you maintain your beautiful new smile.
