Metal braces

Tried and tested for great results

There’s that old saying: “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” Metal braces are testament to that. They are the tried and true method of orthodontic treatment and what so many patients associate with orthodontic treatment. Yes, they are also known as ‘train tracks’ but at the end of the day, they get great results.

What are metal braces?

Traditional metal braces are made up of three parts: small metal brackets which are attached to the front of your teeth with an orthodontic adhesive; thin metal archwires which link each of these individual brackets together; and elastic bands, also known as ligatures.

Together, these three parts apply gentle force to your teeth, guiding them over time into a straight position to give you that beautiful smile you’ve been in search of.
