Types of Braces
What are Metal Braces?
Traditional metal braces use a series of brackets that are attached to each teeth in a patient’s mouth, that are then connected together via metal wires. The tightness of the wire is what ultimately pulls the teeth into their designated positions over time. Metal braces are an incredibly straightforward system and, as a result, are one of the most effective ways to correct certain dental-related issues available on the market today.
How does SureSmile technology improve each treatment?
SureSmile technology allows your orthodontist to take precise 3D scans of your teeth, which are then used to create virtual molds. With this type of information, your orthodontist can literally plan out the movement and angles of each tooth over time – thus creating a treatment option that is far more precise and that gets even more effective as time goes on.
What is treatment like with Metal Braces?
When you have metal braces, there are certainly some foods you’ll want to avoid. These include anything that is particularly hard, sticky or chewy.
What is typical treatment length with Metal Braces?
Most people wear metal braces for about two years.
