What are traditional braces?
Traditional braces are a collection of stainless steel brackets, thin metal wires and bands that are attached to your teeth during treatment.
This fixed orthodontic treatment is ideal for treatments that require more complex tooth movements, making them the popular choice in many cases.
What are the benefits of traditional braces?
Traditional metal braces are generally considered the standard treatment because they have been around the longest. They also offer the most powerful correction treatment. In many cases, traditional braces are a cheaper option than the newer, more discreet treatment types.
Braces are a great option for patients that want a less hands-on approach. Traditional braces are attached to your teeth for the duration of the treatment, so you don’t have to worry about removing them when eating, meaning there’s less chance you to forget about, misplace, or break them like aligners.
