Teeth don’t all erupt in the same way, angle and position which can result in deep bites, cross bites, misaligned teeth and even gaps between teeth. Your orthodontist may recommend metal braces to remedy these problems and move the teeth into the correct position. Metal braces can also be used in collaborative treatment to create more space in a gap to enable placement of dental bridges or even implants.
Treatment length will vary depending on the complexity of the treatment and the tooth movement required.
Firstly, stainless steel metal brackets are carefully positioned and attached to the teeth using a special form of dental cement by the orthodontist. Following this, wires made from either stainless steel or titanium which fit into the brackets are then attached using specialised metallic and/or elastic rubber band ties. These apply gentle forces to move the teeth into the desired position. On occasion, larger elastic bands are also required for the more complex movement of teeth.
Traditional metal braces are attached to the front of the teeth, making them more visible than some of the other less inconspicuous options such as Invisalign. Traditional braces are less expensive than some of the other orthodontic treatments we offer.
As orthodontic treatment has evolved, modern brackets have become smaller, less obvious and easier to keep clean. There are a number of alternatives to this form of treatment if you are concerned about the appearance of metal braces, including ceramic braces, Invisalign and lingual orthodontic systems.
To make your journey to a superior smile as stress free as possible, we offer a range of 0% APR finance and instalment plans which allow you to spread the cost of your treatment in a manageable way and interest-free for 12 Months.
Finance can typically be arranged within 24 hours. If you opt to pay in instalments, 50% of the treatment cost must be paid upfront with the balance to be paid over the agreed timeframe.
