Metal braces, also known as traditional braces, are a type of orthodontic appliance used to straighten and align teeth. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and consist of brackets, arch wires, and elastic bands.
The brackets are small metal squares attached to each tooth’s front using special dental cement. The arch wire is a thin metal wire that runs through each bracket and is used to apply pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into their correct positions. Elastic bands are used to hold the arch wire in place on the brackets.
Dental or teeth metal braces are one of the most common and effective types of orthodontic treatment. They can correct a wide range of dental issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. Treatment typically lasts between 18 to 36 months, depending on the severity of the case and the desired outcome.
While metal braces are very effective, they do require regular adjustments and maintenance, and may cause some discomfort and sensitivity during the first few weeks of treatment. They also require careful oral hygiene practices to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. You can get your Metal Braces in Dubai, at Dr. Sai Ganesh Medical Center.
