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.
