Traditional Metal Braces and Ceramic Braces
At Ahava Orthodontics, we tailor your treatment to your specific needs. We provide the best treatment and care for both phase 1 and phase 2 treatment in Fort Worth. We offer both traditional metal braces as well as ceramic braces.
Phase One And Phase Two Treatment For Braces
Phase One Braces Treatment
Phase 1 Treatment typically begins when your child turns 7 years old. This focuses on preventing more invasive treatments later on. Working on fixing jaw alignment, crooked teeth, and correcting bad habits like thumb sucking early on can make a positive impact on your child’s dental/oral health and their overall facial appearance.
Phase Two Braces Treatment
This phase is less invasive and costly if your child has received phase 1 treatment to prevent more severe issues. If they have not, Dr. Barron will work to create a treatment plan to correct issues such as overbites, underbites, crowding, gapping, overlapping, and crooked teeth.

Traditional Metal Braces
When it comes to braces, the majority of people will often think of the traditional metal braces. You may not realize this, but metal braces have been used for more than 100 years now. Luckily, there have be a lot of improvements in the technology used for braces and they are much more efficient in today’s modern era.
Traditional metal braces use brackets, also made from metal, that attach to the patient’s teeth using a special orthodontic cement. These brackets contain a tiny loop in which a metal wire is threaded through. This wire is what applies pressure and slowly moves the teeth over time. Depending on the treatment plan, these brackets will be tightened every 3-6 weeks. Ahava Orthodontics provides the best treatment for traditional metal braces in Fort Worth.
An alternative to the traditional braces, ceramic braces offer a much more discreet option for realigning your teeth. The brackets used with ceramic braces are usually clear or colored in a way to match the color of your teeth. This helps all of the equipment to be a lot less noticeable which is perfect for people who may not feel very confident with noticeable metal braces.
Ceramic braces are best used when the patient has lost all of their baby teeth and only have adult teeth left. If the misalignments are more severe, then traditional metal braces may be the only option. Our expert team at Ahava Orthodontics will be able to explore both options with you and recommend the best course of treatment that fits your needs.
