Traditional Braces Q & A

What are traditional braces?

Traditional braces, also known as metal braces, are a widely used orthodontic treatment method for correcting dental misalignments and achieving a straighter smile. They consist of metal brackets that bond to your teeth and are connected by archwires, which apply gentle pressure, guiding your teeth into their desired positions.

Though clear aligners are a popular choice, the Cuenin Orthodontics team offers traditional braces because of their effectiveness. In addition, they like to give their patients a choice.

What issues can traditional braces address?

Traditional braces are highly effective in addressing a range of orthodontic issues, such as:

  • Overcrowding
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Other complex bite irregularities

Traditional braces are versatile and can be adjusted to apply precise force to move your teeth in specific directions.

Why would I choose traditional braces over Invisalign®?

Choosing traditional braces over Invisalign or other alternative treatments may depend on various factors. One reason is the complexity of your orthodontic issues. 

Traditional braces are often recommended for severe cases requiring significant tooth movement or jaw alignment corrections. They can effectively handle complex cases that might not be the best option for other treatments.

In addition, traditional braces can be a good choice for younger patients, as they offer a fun and customizable aspect. Patients can choose different colored elastic ties that hold the archwires to the brackets, allowing them to express their personality and make the braces more enjoyable.
