03 Jun All About Metal Braces
Orthodontic treatments have become more advanced over the years. Introduction of solutions such as Invisalign and ceramic braces have drawn attention away from traditional metal braces, however, metal braces are still the most popular option at our office!
Metal braces have a number of clinical benefits but ultimately most of our patients choose metal braces because they love picking fun coloured elastics and being able to customize their orthodontic “accessory”.
At our office, we use a mini metal bracket that is rounded with a very low profile. This makes them quite comfortable after a few days of adaptation. Also, because of the strength of the metal, the braces can be very small allowing easier oral hygiene and less food accumulation.
