What Are Traditional Metal Braces?
While there are many new technologies for dealing with malocclusions, or misalignments as they are called, traditional metal braces are an old “workhorse” that does the job right. They have stood the test of time and are still a favorite option of patients both young and old. In fact, traditional metal braces have gained in popularity in recent years, due to the innovation of colored elastic bands. This enables kids and teens to customize their braces and wear them proudly at school and in social media photos.
Traditional metal braces work through a combination of small metal brackets, usually stainless steel, that are adhered to teeth. Wire is strung between the brackets to slowly move the teeth into the correct position. The elastic bands hold the wire onto the brackets.
