The Traditional Braces Procedure
Getting traditional metal braces can be a lengthy process. However, we want to reassure you that it is also quick and painless. Your comfort is our top priority throughout the procedure. We offer comfy chairs, and while we work, you can watch a movie projected above your head. Please let us know if anything would make you feel more at ease.
Metal brackets and archwires are used in traditional braces to move your teeth into a better position. We cement a metal bracket onto each tooth’s surface. We need to thoroughly clean your teeth and dry out your mouth to do this correctly. Any moisture could cause the glue to malfunction. We will begin work with the archwires after each bracket has been secured.
Each archwire is a U-shaped wire that attaches to the brackets. The wire runs along the patient’s tooth line in the middle and pulls on the frames to tighten the teeth, causing them to move into a more straight position. You will need to return to our office throughout your treatment to have the wire adjusted and tightened again to keep the treatment going. This isn’t going to be a long adjustment appointment, and it should be painless!
The severity of your misalignment will determine the length of your treatment. Some people may require a more extended treatment plan that includes elastics, spacers, chains, or other orthodontic appliances. Others may only require metal brackets and wires to move their teeth into the proper locations. The typical treatment time is 10 to 12 months. Because each case is unique and tailored, we will go through this in further detail during your braces consultation. Before we begin, we will make sure that you understand every procedure stage.
