Conventional Braces Are The Reliable and Trusted Way To Straighten Your Teeth
Braces have been perfected over time to offer the best possible results. Thus, we believe they are the best orthodontic treatment you can get. To achieve this, we use a combination of metal brackets & wires. As a result of this our braces can resolve a number of different correction & alignment concerns. Our braces are strong & can often attain the most drastic results in the shortest amount of time. Additionally, as braces have developed over time. They are now smaller in size. Allowing patients to keep their teeth clean & allow for greater comfort.
The treatment involves metal brackets connected by a wire that exerts gentle pressure over time. With the end result to gradually move the teeth into alignment. Therefore, they are used to correct the bite relationship between the arches. Traditional braces can often be the most cost effective option when straightening your teeth. This is beneficial for families with children who need orthodontic treatment at an early age. Or for anyone who is looking for the most effective option to address significant orthodontic concerns. Metal braces can also be customised with colours around the brackets. Allowing for young patients to personalise their braces.
The traditional braces treatment occurs over a number of stages. Normally this takes between 6-24 months before completed. Your orthodontist will discuss every step of the treatment process with you. Ensuring you know what to expect but the general process is listed below.
