TRANSFORM YOUR SMILE

Metal braces are the most traditional form of braces for straightening your teeth. They’ve been around for about 50 years! They are made of stainless steel or titanium brackets and wires that work to move misaligned teeth back into their correct place. This orthopedic treatment works to move the teeth slowly by creating tension using the wire attached to the metallic brackets, to guide the teeth into alignment. Rubber bands are used to keep the wire in place.

WHAT ARE METAL BRACES?

Metal braces are a simple and effective way of straightening your teeth. They use a system of metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth, with a metal wire attached by rubber bands to move the teeth. These are the most common type of braces you’ll see, but every person has their own unique treatment plan. During your free consultation, your specialist orthodontist will work to create a custom plan specific to your needs and current oral situation. If you don’t like the look of metal, you can choose from other orthopedic treatments such as: lingual braces, ceramic braces or Invisalign.

HOW DO METAL BRACES WORK?

Metal braces are made up of very few components. Metallic brackets are bonded to each tooth with a dental adhesive and will stay there for the duration of your orthopedic treatment. A thin piece of metal wire runs through the brackets along the upper and lower teeth, and is secured in place by rubber bands that surround each bracket. This keeps the wire in place and allows your specialist orthodontist to manipulate the teeth into the correct position.

HOW ARE THEY KEPT CLEAN?

Braces seem like a very complicated contraption and you may be wondering how you are going to keep them clean. Firstly, don’t panic! Your specialist orthodontist will show you exactly how to properly clean your teeth with braces on. You don’t have to change your cleaning routine too much. There will just be a little extra effort required to make sure you get into every nook and cranny in your mouth. You’ll need to make sure you clean over, under and around the brackets, wires and bands.
