Conventional braces are still one of the most effective treatment options for straightening teeth. Braces work using brackets and wires to move your teeth into position. Dr. Dayan places each bracket onto its ideal position on the surface of your tooth and the wire is slotted into these brackets. The brackets are fastened to the wire using elastic bands. As the wire attempts to straighten, it gradually moves your teeth into their ideal position.
Conventional braces are suitable for all patients, including children, teens, and adults. Conventional braces are made from stainless steel and have the lowest profile of all types of braces. Conventional braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than they have ever been. They can also be customized into many different colors.
