Traditional metal braces
Metal braces are the original orthodontic method. In fact, they are what most people think of when they picture orthodontic treatment. But braces have come a long way over the years, and our modern metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more efficient than ever.
Metal braces straighten your smile using a system of metal brackets affixed to your teeth, a thin metal archwire running through them, and small elastic bands to hold it all together. These elastics can be customized with fun colors, or clear for added discretion.
When you visit our practice for adjustment appointments, Dr. Caswell will create precise bends in your archwires. This will create gentle, targeted pressure that will guide your teeth into proper alignment over the course of treatment.
