Type of Braces
We offer many different types of braces, giving you the option to choose the best appliance for your teeth and budget
Traditional Metal Braces
Are the most common method of orthodontic treatment and can be used to treat a wide variety of dental problems, including teeth that are crooked or misaligned, teeth that are overcrowded, large gaps between teeth and teeth which are rotated or protrusive. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and which are connected by a wire. The braces put pressure on the teeth, gently correcting their position, and as the position of the teeth changes the wire is replaced with increasingly sturdier ones, making sure the correction is as long-lasting as possible.
Traditional metal braces will be more visible than the more inconspicuous options such as ceramic braces, but they are much less expensive. Furthermore, modern brackets are smaller and less obtrusive than ever before, making the experience of having the braces more comfortable and less troublesome.
For a more discreet option for those who wish to have orthodontic treatment with the same effectiveness as fixed metal braces, clear braces, are an ideal option and are available as a treatment option at MPDC.
