About Metal braces:
Metal Braces can be silver or gold colored. Metal brackets are very strong and can withstand most types of daily interaction. When initally attached they may be a little irritating to your gums, but patients normally get used to it. Traditional metal braces are installed with elastic rubber bands. These are called ligatures and they keep the arch and the bracket attached to each other. The Ligatures are usually available in multiple colors, so you at least have a little say on how it looks.
Advantages of Metal Dental Braces:
Metal Orthodontic Braces are the proven and reliable way to straighten teeth and correct under bites, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and various other flaws or “malocclusions” of the teeth and jaw.
How Metal Braces Work:
Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch wires. Over time they gradually move your teeth into the desired location to straighten your teeth and improve your bite and smile. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
