The basics about traditional braces
Traditional braces are the most common type of dental brace, using stainless-steel brackets attached to the front of each individual tooth, with arch wires connecting them together. They remain in your mouth for the entire treatment period, and they slowly move your teeth into the correct new position exerting a constant gentle pressure.
Of the different brace types, traditional metal braces provide very precise control over each individual tooth and can achieve results quickly. Fitting them requires and 1–2 hour painless visit and once the treatment is completed and the metal brace is removed, it is common to then wear a removable retainer for a period afterwards to keep that winning smile.
Why choose traditional braces?
Traditional braces are a versatile and effective solution for all sorts of teeth alignment and bite issues, especially more extreme cases. They provide fast acting correction, and they are made using very durable materials, so are unlikely to break from physical activities.
While other types of braces are more aesthetically discreet or removable, today’s metal traditional braces are much smaller and much less noticeable than you may remember from a few years ago. Because they remain in your mouth for the entire treatment, they provide continual care and can’t be misplaced.
