Metal braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment used in adults and children alike.

  • They have the unique ability to straighten and align teeth in order to improve function, appearance and maintain oral health.
  • Metal braces can remedy this problem through the use of unique metal attachments to deliver gentle forces to move the teeth into the correct position. Metal braces can also be used in collaborative treatment to create more space in a gap to enable placement of dental bridges or even implants.

Treatment length will vary depending on the complexity of the treatment and the tooth movement required.

  • Firstly, stainless steel metal brackets are carefully positioned and attached to the teeth using a special form of dental cement by the orthodontic specialist.
  • Following this, wires made from either stainless steel or titanium which fit into the brackets are then attached using specialised elastic rubber band ties, which are responsible for the application of gentle forces to move the teeth into the desired position.
  • On occasion, larger elastic bands are also required for the more complex movement of teeth.
  • Traditional metal braces are attached to the front of the teeth, and as a result are more visible than some of the other less inconspicuous options, but they are also relatively less expensive than the other options.
