Traditional metal braces are a classic, proven orthodontic device which can effectively treat the entire gamut of orthodontic conditions ranging from mild to severe cases of misaligned midlines, protrusion, crowding, excessive spacing, underbite, overbite, crossbite, and openbite. Traditional metal braces allow the orthodontist maximum control over the alignment of teeth which allows traditional metal braces in conjunction with expert orthodontic care to correct any orthodontic complication. In a small percentage of severe cases, oral surgery may be required in conjunction with orthodontic treatment using metal braces to completely correct the issue.
