Traditional Metal Braces | Specialist Braces Treatment In La Jolla | Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry

Metal braces

Do you feel self-conscious when you smile? Are you embarrassed because of the way your teeth look? At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we care about our patients and want to ensure they enjoy the special moments in life without feeling awkward about how their teeth look.

What are metal braces?

Metal braces are the traditional method used by orthodontists to straighten a patient’s teeth. Small metal brackets are bonded to the front of your top and bottom teeth. A thin archwire then connects these brackets and small elastic bands fit around the brackets.

This system uses gentle force to move your teeth into a beautifully straight position.

Effective treatment option

Metal braces are an extremely effective treatment method. These braces have been used for years to correct major and minor orthodontic problems in children, teens and adults.

The only disadvantage to them is the way they look. The metal brackets and archwires are visible on your teeth, which is how they’ve come to be known as train tracks.

At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we use a range of appliances so chances are you may not need to have metal braces. However, if we believe this is the best treatment for you, the brackets we use are very small so they’re not as noticeable, or uncomfortable, as they used to be.
