Conventional (metal) braces


Brace11It’s important to remember, that most people aren’t born with an attractive smile or a proper bite. Consequently, wearing braces is usually inevitable if you want to have a beautiful, healthy smile. Having a great smile will not only help you look better and feel better about yourself, studies have shown it can impact your personal and professional success throughout your lifetime.

The teenage years (between the ages of 12 and 16) are the most common time for orthodontic treatment. That’s because by age 12, most, if not all, of your permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, so crooked teeth, gaps and “bad bites” can easily be detected. These problems rarely correct themselves, so this is when the majority of people seek orthodontic treatment.


Conventional metal braces can be an affordable alternative for teenage or adult orthodontic treatment, but this doesn’t mean that the results are compromised. They can be used to correct all types of crowding and malocclusion.

Traditional metal 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.
