Traditional braces are orthodontic device that helps straighten your teeth. These braces consist of metal brackets that are attached to each tooth. Wires connect the brackets to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, guiding them into proper alignment. They are one of the most common forms of orthodontics, often preferred by adults.

What Are the Advantages of Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces have been a popular option for patients for decades. They are effective and affordable, and they work well for the majority of patients. Traditional braces are also versatile and can be used to treat many cases.

Traditional braces are one of the most affordable orthodontic treatments on the market. Most dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost, and our office offers convenient financing options as well.

One of the major advantages of traditional braces is the straightening power. Traditional braces are very effective. They are able to correct most types of alignment problems. They can also be used to correct more complex misalignments, such as bite problems.

Traditional braces typically take anywhere from 18 to 36 months to correct your smile. But this mostly depends on the severity of the cases.

What Happens After Getting Traditional Braces?

Once the braces are on, you have regular checkups, usually every four to eight weeks. Our dentist will make adjustments as needed. Some patients wear a retainer after their braces come off to hold their smile in place for the future.

Traditional braces require diligent care, especially with your oral hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing are more difficult with braces, so you must brush and floss carefully. With braces, you may also have a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease, so you must brush your teeth for at least two full minutes twice a day.

Are Traditional Braces Right For You?

Traditional braces are a common treatment option for misaligned or crooked teeth. A dentist may recommend a traditional braces treatment if you are struggling with crowded teeth, gaps, or bite issues.

Traditional braces use metal brackets that attach to the front of the teeth and a wire that runs through these brackets. The wire applies pressure on each tooth to gradually move it into place. Traditional braces can also correct bite issues by shifting the jaw.
