The secret to straighter teeth is simple: braces.
These orthodontic appliances correct bites and straighten smiles by moving your teeth to its proper position. Due to advances in dental technology, people who wish to fix their smiles have plenty of options.
In most cases, however, traditional braces are still effective.
Kapadia Orthodontics takes you through the fundamentals of the traditional option to fix your teeth.
Today’s Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are now more advanced than ever. Their small size and low profile provide superior comfort to the lips and cheeks after they are placed on your teeth. Composed of stainless steel, metal braces work by using metal brackets and wires. The archwires connect your brackets and apply light pressure, causing the teeth to shift into position. You can also choose from a variety of colored elastic ties that go around your brackets, holding the archwire in place. These colored elastics are changed every appointment to reactivate the wires that move your teeth.
Why Metal Braces are Still an Option
Despite the growing options in orthodontic treatment, metal braces are still popular and cost-effective. Patients of all ages are good candidates for these traditional oral appliances.
With metal braces, patients also have the option to add colored elastics for a twist of fun. If you love to coffee or dark colored meals, darker ligatures can conceal the stains while you straighten your teeth.
