Metal Braces

Metal braces are very popular for orthodontic patients of all ages. Today's metal braces are much smaller, have a lower profile, and are more comfortable than in the past.  

Types of Metal Braces in Our Practice

There are several different kinds of metal braces.  We use traditional metal brackets, as well as self-ligating metal brackets.  At your consultation appointment, we will select the type of bracket to best fit your treatment needs.  

Traditional Metal Braces  - Metal braces and a separate tie to hold the wire in place.  These ties may be silver, clear, or colored ties.  

Self-Ligating Metal Braces - Metal braces with small metal doors to hold the wire in place.
