They Are Not Like the Metal Braces of the Past

Traditional metal braces are still one of the most affordable options, and they are more effective at treating more serious dental problems, such as extreme overcrowding. While many people associate traditional metal braces with a “metal mouth,” this orthodontic treatment has improved significantly over the years, in terms of comfort, appearance, and overall treatment times

The metal braces of today consist of smaller, sleeker, brackets that are adhered to your teeth and connected by archwires. Today’s wires work with the heat in your mouth to gently straighten the archwire back to its original form (a technology developed by NASA). That means that your body heat will help to move your teeth more quickly and less painfully than in the past. Plus, you won’t have to visit us as often for treatment!

Traditional braces also have a new, fun twist without any extra cost – color! The elastics that fit around the brackets enable you to alter the color of the braces at each appointment. This makes getting braces more exciting for kids because they can show their personality by picking their favorite colors or the colors of their sports team. Silver, gray, and white colored elastics are also available for adults that want a more neutral look.
