Traditional metal braces are what most people envision when they think of orthodontic treatment and they are still, by far, the most popular option with children and teenagers. While other kinds of braces have been steadily gaining traction, they have yet to beat traditional metal braces in popularity. In recent years, there have been significant technological advancements in these types of braces that have decreased their size and thickness, providing increased comfort and better hygiene.
What are Metal Braces?
Traditional metal braces are made of smooth stainless steel. They are affixed to your teeth with an adhesive and connected by a wire. They need occasional tightening to allow steady pressure to gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
