Traditional Metal Braces

Metal Braces Las Vegas

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. Smaller, flatter, and more comfortable today than in the past, metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and together with archwires straighten teeth.

The archwire is bent to mirror the shape of your teeth the way you want them to look. As the wire attempts to straighten itself out, it puts pressure on your teeth and moves them over time.

Before your braces are placed, your orthodontist must determine whether or not braces are appropriate for your situation. X-rays, molds, and impressions help your orthodontist determine what course of action to take. If your orthodontist determines you are a good candidate for braces, the first step will be to apply the brackets.

Brackets are attached to the front of the teeth with an adhesive. Archwire is inserted between the brackets and fitted with ligatures to fasten it to the brackets.

After initial placement, braces must be adjusted every month or two to keep constant pressure on the teeth. Traditional metal braces can take anywhere between six months and two and a half years for full treatment.

If you're considering adjusting your teeth, talk to your orthodontist about your options to determine which type of braces will work best for you.
