Metal braces have been a staple treatment in orthodontics for decades. They consist of metal brackets bonded to the teeth and connected by wires that gradually move the teeth into alignment. Despite the emergence of newer orthodontic options, metal braces remain a popular choice due to their effectiveness and affordability. Next, we’ll explore the procedures involved, benefits, risks, and why Dentiva Clinic is the ideal choice for metal braces treatment.

Metal Braces Procedures

Consultation and Evaluation

The orthodontist conducts a thorough examination of the teeth and jaws to assess the need for braces and develop a customized treatment plan.

Bracket Placement

Small metal brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth using dental adhesive. These brackets serve as anchors for the wires that will guide the movement of the teeth.

Wire Placement

An archwire is threaded through the brackets and secured in place with elastic bands or ligatures. The orthodontist adjusts the tension of the wire to apply gentle pressure on the teeth, gradually shifting them into alignment.

Adjustments

Patients visit the orthodontist periodically for adjustments to the wires and brackets. These adjustments help maintain progress and ensure that the teeth continue to move in the desired direction.

Maintenance

Patients are instructed on how to properly care for their braces, including oral hygiene practices and dietary restrictions to prevent damage to the braces.

Removal

Once the desired alignment is achieved, the braces are carefully removed, and any remaining adhesive is polished off the teeth. Patients may then be fitted with retainers to maintain their newly aligned smile.
