Traditional braces (metal braces) are what you might imagine when someone says they are having their teeth alignment corrected. Made up of two distinct pieces, small metal brackets that attach to the teeth and a long metal alloy wire that runs through each bracket, traditional braces are the tried-and-true method for correcting teeth alignment.
Strong and Durable
Traditional braces are made from a strong metal alloy, and they will not break or crack from orthodontist-approved foods or drinks.
Variety of Uses
Traditional braces can be used to correct teeth alignment regardless of their current arrangement. Underbites, overbites, or anything in between are all corrected using traditional braces.
Highly convenient, traditional braces are fixed appliances that are attached to your teeth. This eliminates the risk of losing them (a risk with clear aligners).
Suitable for All Ages
People of any age can benefit from traditional braces. Metal braces are the staple of modern orthodontics and because of this, almost anyone can use them to get the smile of their dreams.
Traditional braces are the tried-and-true method for correcting misaligned teeth and developing the smile of your dreams.
