Metal Dental Braces
Traditional metal dental braces are typically used in cases with extreme overcrowding because they move your teeth in small increments at a time and give your dentist or orthodontist more control.
Metal Braces in Fort Wayne, IN
All kinds of braces are dental tools that help correct problems with your teeth like crowding, crooked teeth, or misalignment. Metal braces include brackets that are attached to the front of your teeth or bands that fit around each tooth with flexible wires or archwires that hold the bands together.
Some braces also include rubber bands or metal ties that link the brackets to the wire. These bands create more pressure to help straighten and align your teeth.
Sometimes clear brackets and tooth-colored wires can help hide the hardware. Our doctors will help you explore the options and discuss if braces fit your treatment scenario.
While orthodontics can solve many tooth alignment problems, successful treatment relies on good patient compliance. Wearing elastic bands consistently, keeping follow-up appointments for adjustments, and practicing outstanding home care can all help lead to a positive outcome. This commitment involves frequent preventive visits with your hygienist. The Sunlight Smiles team specializes in helping our orthodontic patients through this process so you can enjoy a gorgeous, healthy smile.
Orthodontics with braces involves teeth straightening and jaw alignment, combining beauty and function. Identifying potential problems as a child may allow for easier treatment, but it’s never too late to discuss ways to enhance a smile.
