Traditional Metal Braces & Colorful Options

How do traditional braces work?

Traditional braces use metal brackets and wire to straighten your teeth and align your jaw. The brackets are adhered to your teeth, and a metal wire connects them.

After you get braces, you'll need to schedule regular visits with Dr. Andy. Dr. Andy will adjust your braces to help you achieve a straight, even smile.

Why would I use traditional braces?

Traditional braces are a popular and affordable option to straighten your teeth and correct bite or jaw issues. Traditional metal braces are very dependable, and have been used successfully for years.


How long does treatment take with traditional metal braces?

Traditional metal braces use pressure to move teeth, which is a very effective way to straighten your smile. Because metal braces are used for many different reasons (such as straightening teeth, aligning your bite, and correcting jaw issues), the amount of time you'll need to wear braces will vary.

If you're considering metal braces, please schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Andy. He will determine the length of time needed to get the results you want.
