Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable. Brackets are bonded to the teeth, arch wires are placed through the brackets and small elastic bands secure the wire in the bracket. Tightening the arch wire gradually, move the teeth into proper position.
These braces are adjusted every 4-6 weeks to bring about the desired results. Although a little discomfort is expected during the treatment, today’s braces are more comfortable than ever before. These braces are made of high grade stainless steel which are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than the past.
