How Do Metal Braces Work?
Your orthodontist will mount brackets to the teeth and add archwires. These wires apply pressure to the teeth to align them.
Traditional metal braces mount to the front of the teeth. Self-ligating braces, such as the Damon or Carriere systems, allow the guide wires to slide automatically through specialized clips in the bracket. These often produce a more comfortable treatment with fewer overall appointments.
Are You a Good Candidate for Traditional Braces?
Metal braces are an ideal solution for people of all ages to get the smile they want.
Resolving teeth Issues can prevent other health challenges. The American Dental Association has identified several health concerns arising from overcrowded teeth, gaps and bite misalignments. If you or your child needs orthodontic treatment, Houston Orthodontic Specialists can help you decide if metal braces are right.
