The Biggest Benefits Of Traditional Metal Braces
Many years ago, there was only one option when patients were in need of orthodontic care — traditional metal braces. Over the years, different variations and treatment methods have been introduced. Today, one of the most talked about orthodontic treatment options is clear aligners, which begs the question, “Are traditional metal braces still beneficial to patients?” The answer is yes! Most of our patients still receive treatment using traditional metal braces. In fact, there are some patients who are not even eligible for clear aligners for a number of reasons. Traditional metal braces offer a number of benefits to our patients.
Effective for Any Patient
We see patients who have some difficulties with the placement of their teeth and jaw, and options like clear aligners will not work. Traditional metal braces can be used to fix any problem such as:
- Protruding teeth
- Overbite, underbite, crossbite
- Gaps between teeth
The materials placed on the teeth during this treatment are extremely durable. They are designed to withstand daily chewing as well as cleaning and maintenance. Of course, there is always the possibility of damage, but it is easily fixed with a trip to our office.
Traditional metal braces are the most cost-effective treatment for orthodontic care. The cost of other options is not always practical for many individuals and families.
Care Will Never Be Interrupted
Unlike clear aligners, traditional metal braces cannot be removed from your mouth. This means that the treatment is always working. Unfortunately, with clear aligners, if patients do not wear the trays properly, treatment will be extended. This is not an option with metal braces. They are in your mouth to stay until treatment is completed.
