Metal Braces

Metal Braces Are a Great Choice for Most Orthodontic Issues

Get Your Best Smile with Effective Treatment

In some cases, metal braces in our Burlington Township, NJ, and Jenkintown, PA, office locations are the best option for aligning your smile and improving your dental health. While they may not be the newest method of straightening teeth, metal braces have made significant technological advances in recent years. The methods that metal braces are used are not the same as 10 or even 5 years ago. Our braces are smaller and we utilize an advanced, self-ligating brace with a locking-door mechanism to hold the wire in place with less friction and more efficient tooth movement. While some of the experiences may be similar, the materials are now stronger and more resilient to standard wear and tear, and the wires are space-age technology that moves the teeth with light continuous force.

Who Are Metal Braces for?

Metal braces are for orthodontic patients of all ages to help them achieve beautiful smiles. If your child’s permanent teeth are crooked or have a misaligned bite, traditional metal braces are an affordable and precise way to correct the problem. A popular choice among parents and orthodontists, while modern-day metal braces are smaller, more lightweight, stylish, and comfortable than they used to be, they deliver optimal results. For children who enjoy expressing themselves freely, the elastics used to exert gentle pressure on the jaw to help move and draw the teeth into the correct position more quickly, come in a variety of bright colors your child can choose from.

Of course, metal braces are not just for children. If you are concerned about the appearance of crooked teeth, an underbite, an overbite, or a crossbite, contemporary metal braces are a trusted choice for adults too.

Why Care About this Service?

There are four types of braces: metal, ceramic, lingual, and Invisalign. Of the four choices, metal braces are the most cost-effective and versatile for successfully treating most orthodontic issues. Unlike Invisalign braces, only your orthodontist can remove your child’s metal braces, which is a feature many parents appreciate since keeping them in place speeds up the treatment time and delivers the best results. As your teeth or bite realign, braces need to be adjusted and this is most easily accomplished with metal braces. Because of their effectiveness, they remain a leading choice in orthodontic care. In short, they work!

How We Deliver this Service

Although each person’s treatment is different, the process of getting braces on and caring for them is generally the same. Your journey to a beautiful smile begins with your initial orthodontic consultation. During your consultation, the orthodontist will evaluate the alignment of your teeth and jaws, make a dental impression of your teeth, identify problems that require treatment, and determine the need for any necessary diagnostics records, such as X-Rays. After your initial evaluation, we will discuss the different treatment options, explain the steps involved, and help you make the best decision for you. If you need other oral care, such as tooth extraction or periodontal treatments, the orthodontist may recommend you take care of these before braces.

The cost of braces varies. We strive to work within your budget while providing you with the best treatment plan. Our payment methods include interest-free financing options, which can help you achieve your goal of having a beautiful smile faster.
