Band-and-Bracket Braces For A Straighter Smile!

Band-and-bracket braces, also known as metal or traditional braces, are a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct misaligned teeth. They consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the front of each tooth with thin metal wires or elastic bands connecting the brackets. This system is designed to carefully move the teeth into their desired positions.

At It’s Dental Time in Burlington, our team is pleased to provide this orthodontic system to help patients achieve a straighter, healthier smile. Call us today to learn more!

What’s involved with having these braces placed?

After a thorough examination of your smile and your unique orthodontic needs, our team will develop a treatment plan to realign your teeth. After we’ve discussed our recommendations and received confirmation that you’d like to proceed with treatment, we’ll arrange an appointment to bond metal brackets onto the surface of each of your teeth. Next, we’ll attach a thin archwire to each bracket, which we’ll periodically adjust over the course of your treatment. By doing this, the tension created by the wire will slowly pull your teeth into their most desired positions.

What benefits do traditional braces offer?

In addition to helping patients achieve a straighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile, they can also help correct bite issues, jaw joint problems, speech issues, and other dental problems that can be caused by misaligned teeth. And because they can help eradicate issues with misalignment and teeth crowding, these braces can also help patients improve their oral health in the short and long term. 

Who is a candidate for band-and-bracket braces?

This orthodontic system can be an option for many patients who are looking to address issues with tooth crowding, gaps between teeth, as well as a number of bite-related issues. A thorough examination by our dental experts will confirm whether or not this is the ideal system for your needs.
