Metal braces are the most common type. They are popular with teenagers as they can be brightened up with different colours to make the smile unique. They are made of high-grade stainless steel.
In spite of recent innovations in orthodontics
, these traditional braces are still quite widely used due to their versatility. The use of brackets enables your dentist
to precisely reposition the teeth in ways that aren’t always possible with more modern systems and can provide patients with really straight teeth, giving the best possible results.
Fixed metal braces can treat most orthodontic problems, including issues with occlusion or the way the teeth bite together. They can be used to close up gaps in between teeth, to correct teeth that are rotated or protrusive or teeth which are crooked due to overcrowding.
