Experts at Dental Solutions use modern techniques, materials and methodologies to place metal braces.
Metal braces are made of titanium or high-quality stainless steel. There are three main components of metal braces the brackets, archwire and ligature elastic. The brackets are attached using special glue that helps it to bond to the surface of the tooth and stay affixed in place. The archwire is a metal connector that binds each bracket and puts pressure on the teeth guiding them to stay in position. The ligature elastics are also known as rubber bands that come in different colours to the hold the archwires and brackets together.
The braces exert gentle and constant pressure on to the teeth. This soft yet effective force moves teeth into their appropriate position. During each appointment the elastics are changed and the archwires are tightened to maintain the pressure. Some patients wear external headgears.
Traditional metal braces are still extremely popular due to their quick and cost-effective treatment modality. At Dental Solutions, doctors will determine the best course of treatment for each patient. Schedule an appointment today to know how braces can enhance the smile.
