Do you or a loved one suffer from crooked, misaligned or oddly spaced teeth? Looking for an affordable option for correcting your smile? Various structural and cosmetic dental problems can be corrected using metal braces, including spacing issues, crooked teeth, overcrowding, underbites, overbites and more.
Traditional metal braces have been around for quite some time but are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. They remain the most common type of orthodontic treatment and are made using high-grade stainless steel. Metal brackets, archwires and elastics are used to straighten the teeth and move teeth to a more desirable position.
Benefits of Traditional Braces
Traditional braces have been used for decades to repair both functional and cosmetic dental issues and have proven to be highly effective. They are more effective at treating serious dental issues such as overbites and underbites than the alternatives and are significantly less expensive. Some patients may be put off by the appearance; however, in recent years, traditional braces have become smaller, and various bracket and elastic colors may be chosen to show off your unique style.
Although braces are most commonly seen in children and teens, they are a perfect option for patients of any age interested in correcting crooked or misaligned teeth. Want to learn more?
