Traditional fixed metal braces use metal brackets combined with metal wires and silver elastics. Although these are not invisible, traditional braces are still quite widely used due to their versatility and effectiveness. The use of brackets enables the dentist to precisely reposition the teeth in ways that aren't always possible with more modern systems, providing you with the best possible results.
Fixed metal braces can treat most orthodontic problems, including issues with occlusion or the way the teeth bite together. They can be used to close gaps between teeth, to correct teeth that are rotated or protrusive, or teeth which are crooked due to overcrowding.
