What are traditional orthodontics?

Traditional orthodontics are metal braces that rely on fixed brackets and wires to realign a patient’s bite and straighten their teeth. With traditional orthodontics, our team can help you discover your healthiest, most attractive smile. 

What Traditional Braces Can Do

Though Invisalign and short-term braces may work for some patients, patients with more complex dental issues may benefit more from traditional orthodontics. Your dentist may recommend traditional orthodontics if you have any of the following dental issues:

  1. Severe overbite, underbite, or crossbite 
  2. Overcrowded or overlapping teeth
  3. Expansive gaps and spacing between teeth

Traditional braces can correct all of these issues and more, resulting in a straighter and healthier smile. 

Treatment Time Varies

Your dentist will create a personalised treatment plan for you, which will include length of treatment. Orthodontic treatment can last anywhere between several months to two years. Throughout your treatment, you will visit our practice and we will gently adjust your wires to move your teeth into the desired position.
