Metal braces are the most common type of braces and have been used for many years to straighten teeth. While they are not as aesthetically pleasing as clear braces or clear aligners, they are a reliable and effective option for many patients. At Watson Orthodontics, we use state-of-the-art metal braces to provide patients with the best orthodontic treatment available.
Metal braces consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth with a special adhesive and connected by a thin wire. Over time, the wire is adjusted to gradually move the teeth into their correct positions. This process typically takes around 18-24 months but can vary depending on the individual patient’s needs.
Metal braces offer several advantages over other types of orthodontic treatment. They are:
Metal braces are a reliable way to straighten teeth and correct bite problems.
Metal braces are typically less expensive than clear braces or clear aligners.
Metal braces are sturdy and can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
With metal braces, patients can choose from a variety of colored elastics to personalize their treatment.
