Traditional metal braces are a system of brackets that are bonded to your teeth and hold interconnecting wires. The wires used today, made of a nickel-titanium, are generally thinner and more resilient than those used in previous years, shortening treatment time and improving overall comfort. Over time, the steady, gentle pressure applied to the teeth helps move them into the correct position.
With metal braces, you don’t have to worry about keeping up with anything that is removable. Dr. Rossen can help you decide which type of treatment is best for you.
