Traditional Metal Braces

Usually, when you consider getting braces for yourself or any of your family member; you might have imagined a mouth full of metal wires and your teeth engraved in them. However due to many technological advancements in the field of orthodontics, many different orthodontic treatment options are available but the traditional metal braces are still the most effective, trusted and widely used orthodontic treatment for correcting jaws and teeth for centuries.

Traditional metal braces are the standard small brackets that are connected with each other through an arch wire and the wire is attached to each individual tooth to slowly guide your teeth into their new position by gentle pressure applied from small elastic bands.

Metal braces are not made out of one kind of metal alone, they are made out of an intelligent combination of different metals. This combination of different metals is called – alloy. Whenever you are getting your braces, just confirm which alloy it is. One of the best options is made of nickel along with chromium and also chromium-nickel-cobalt alloys.

The braces are put on by orthodontists through a simple and detailed process. They completely dry the teeth, then apply orthodontic glue and cement in the middle of each teeth. The brackets are placed on them. After they are solidified into place, wires are placed to keep them aligned.

The metal braces are a typically faster and cheaper choice for the treatment. They are effective for teeth and jaw alignment.

The best way to know if metal braces are of the options for you is to book a consultation with orthodontic experts.

Only a few people may know that this traditional method of metal braces can be as colorful as you may want it to be.

After initial consultation, it is decided that how long your orthodontic treatment is required and the longer your treatment, the higher is the cost. There is no one price that fits for metal braces.

For a standard 18-month plan, the cost of traditional metal braces is somewhere between $3,000 and $7,000. Cost of these braces might go higher if any other appliances such as anchorage implants, expansion plates, or bite correcting springs are required in conjunction with the metal braces.
