Metal Braces

Metal braces are what most people think of when you mention an orthodontist.

Although they are rather obvious, modern technology has provided plenty of more discrete ways we can offer treatment, including ceramic braces and invisible 'aligners'.

Metal braces have now been in use for over 100 years.

They're made of small metal brackets which are fitted to the front of your teeth with cement with a wire running between them kept in place by small elastic bands. A series of different sized wires are then used to gradually move your teeth into place.

The main disadvantage of this type of brace is its appearance. It isn't very discreet and can be off-putting - particularly to adults that want to avoid that 'teenager' look.
