Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. Ask Dr. Potter how traditional braces can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Benefits To Traditional Braces
The least expensive of all types of braces for children, teens or adults are the traditional, stainless steel versions that are bonded to the front of your teeth. The brackets can come in different shapes and sizes depending on the company that makes them. One thing they all have in common is that each bracket has edges known as “wings” where metal or elastic bands can be tied around, to hold the orthodontic wire in place.
