What You Should Know about Traditional Braces
There’s a very good reason why traditional braces have been used by dentists and orthodontists all around the world for many, many years – traditional braces are an extremely effective way to straighten teeth. Today’s traditional braces include a small metal bracket that is glued to the front of each tooth, with the old-fashioned type of band typically only used for molars. You may envision gray metal when you think of traditional braces, but Dr. Vo offers patients either silver or golden-colored braces. Most of the time, patients will need to wear either metal tie wires or rubber bands called a ligatures to hold the arch wire onto the bracket. Ligatures come in a wide variety of colors, allowing patients to express their own individuality while their teeth are being straightened.
Dr. Vo also offers patients the option of traditional braces with ceramic brackets made of composite materials. Ceramic braces are also extremely durable, don’t stain, and are much less noticeable than metal braces.
