Benefits of Traditional (Metal) Braces

Metal braces have been around since the 18th century and they are the method of orthodontic treatment that most of us are familiar with. Traditional braces are more effective at treating a variety of malocclusion issues than other orthodontic options.  Because you will be wearing braces for a long period of time, Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS wants to assure that you are comfortable with your final decision. Allow us to explain the benefits of traditional braces to help make your choice an easier one.

The basic idea behind braces is to produce a force on a tooth in a specific, controlled amount and direction to move a tooth.  Traditional metal braces use a combination of brackets, wires, and bands to straighten your smile. Traditional braces are cost-effective options and though it may not sound beneficial to you, traditional braces are secure, so they will not move during treatment.  This is an exceptional choice for those who may not have the self-discipline that is associated with removable aligners. Additionally, metal braces are the sturdiest option which means there is a less chance of damaging the appliance and less time spent in the dental chair. If you think that traditional braces may be right for you, schedule your consultation today.

If you have questions or concerns about traditional braces, please give us a call. To learn about services we provide at the practice, visit for more information.
