Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the treatment of choice for the majority of orthodontic treatments. To realign teeth, brackets are attached to teeth and supported by wires. Through careful calculated adjustments to the brackets and wires, an orthodontist guides teeth into an optimal position and ensure ongoing oral health. Although the concept of using archwires, elastics, and brackets attached to teeth to improve the alignment of teeth and optimize bite patterns is relatively unchanged in recent years, the braces themselves have become significantly more comfortable.

Traditional Metal Braces Can Repair Almost Any Orthodontic Condition

Compared to other orthodontic correction techniques, traditional metal braces can solve the largest range of orthodontic problems, such as

  • vertical alignment issues,
  • severe deep bites,
  • cross bites,
  • severe crowding, or
  • extreme underbites or overbites.

Traditional metal braces will give an orthodontist the greatest possible control in correcting jaw position, optimizing teeth alignment, and maximizing the results of the orthodontic treatment.
