Traditional braces are one of the most common and effective teeth straightening treatments available. At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we offer metal braces to our patients in La Jolla who are seeking a more conventional treatment option.
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 and a thin archwire then connects these brackets, with small elastic bands fitted around the brackets. This system uses gentle force to move your teeth into a straight position.
Effective treatment option
Metal braces are an extremely effective treatment method. This treatment has been used for years to correct major and minor orthodontic problems in children, teens and adults. The primary disadvantage to metal braces is that they are visible on your teeth. At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we always recommend the best treatment for you, and since we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options, you may be able to select a more subtle option, if desired.
