Metal / Traditional Braces
Metal braces remain the most common orthodontic treatment. Metal braces are also referred to as traditional braces because they are the most time-tested orthodontic system. These braces are proven effective for improving minor misalignment as well as addressing more severe or complicated malocclusion. For patients who need orthodontic correction to avoid speech impediments or periodontal disease, traditional braces are an ideal choice.
Dr. Kincer brings over twenty years of experience in using metal braces to straighten smiles. He treats teens and adults with the latest options in high quality metal braces. Due to the advances in materials and adhesives, today’s braces are smaller, less bulky and more comfortable than past decades. As an added benefit, metal braces are typically less expensive than alternative teeth-straightening methods.
What Are Traditional Braces?
Traditional braces involve metal brackets that are securely placed to the tooth surface using a strong adhesive. A small wire is used to connect the brackets across the teeth. By periodically tightening the wire, Dr. Kincer can control and encourage tooth movement and gradually align your teeth and jaw. Traditional braces can create a smile that is not only more attractive, but healthier too. Properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean, which prevents gum disease, decay and discoloration.
When choosing traditional metal braces, you can trust that Dr. Kincer will carefully discuss your treatment plan from start to finish. We want our patients to have an accurate idea of what to expect, including how frequently they may need to visit the office as well as their estimated overall treatment time. We do our best to make metal braces a pleasant and positive experience for everyone. We try to make the process enjoyable, from helping kids choose a fun band color for their metal braces to allowing a teen to shop our mini candy shop after the brackets are removed.
