Are you aware of the condition of your bite, jaw relationship, and teeth placement? Are your teeth perfectly aligned, or do you notice some crowded or crooked areas in your smile?
Your orthodontist can help you manage an improper bite or imperfect smile. At Summer Dental, we provide a variety of orthodontics that can help you achieve maximum oral health. Metal braces are still one of the most popular forms of orthodontics available today.
Metal braces are far smaller, flatter, and more comfortable than the metal braces of the past. If you are interested in achieving a beautiful smile, come talk with our experienced orthodontist to learn more about your braces options.
How Metal Braces Work
Metal braces are made of high quality stainless steel or titanium. They consist of brackets, ligature elastics, and the archwire. A bracket is bonded to each tooth, and the ligature elastics hold the archwire to the brackets.
Your orthodontist will adjust the wire to place pressure on the teeth. The force of this pressure will slowly shift the teeth until they reach their proper positions.
The Benefits of Metal Braces
Some patients prefer the subtle nature of Invisalign braces or ceramic braces, but there are still benefits to choosing metal orthodontics.
- Less Expensive | Metal braces are often the least costly braces option. Savings can be significant, depending on the complexity of your individual case.
- Customizable | Some patients enjoy personalizing their orthodontics with different colored bands. You can make your braces more discreet or play up your personality–the choice is yours!
- Reliability | Metal braces are often more durable than plastic orthodontics. It is difficult to break metal braces, and nearly impossible to lose them! You won’t have to remember to remove or replace your orthodontics when you choose reliable metal braces.
At Summer Dental, we will help you review all of your available braces options. We can discuss your needs, preferences, and budget before setting your next meeting with our orthodontist.
