Traditional Metal Braces

For decades, traditional metal braces have been the go-to solution for achieving a beautiful, well-aligned smile. Their time-tested effectiveness, combined with the expertise of our skilled orthodontist, Dr. Steven Speaker, has made them a staple in our orthodontic office, helping hundreds of our patients achieve stunning, well-aligned smiles that boost confidence and overall dental health. At Speaker Orthodontics, we’re passionate about helping patients in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and beyond achieve their smile goals with metal braces.

Understanding Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces consist of high-quality stainless steel brackets, wires, and bands that gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. This time-tested orthodontic treatment option is suitable for patients of all ages and can address various dental issues, including overcrowding, spacing issues, misaligned bites, and crooked teeth.

One of the key advantages of traditional metal braces is their durability and reliability. These braces can withstand the rigors of orthodontic treatment, providing consistent and predictable results over time. Additionally, advancements in orthodontic technology have made modern metal braces smaller, more comfortable, and more aesthetically pleasing than ever before.

What are the Benefits of Traditional Metal Braces?

Investing in traditional metal braces offers numerous benefits for patients seeking to achieve a straighter, healthier smile, including:

  1. Effective Treatment: Traditional metal braces are highly effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, from mild to severe cases.
  2. Durability: Made from high-quality stainless steel, metal braces are durable and reliable, providing consistent results throughout your treatment journey.
  3. Affordability: Traditional metal braces are often more cost-effective than alternative orthodontic treatments, making them accessible to many patients.
  4. Versatility: Metal braces can address complex orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, spacing issues, and bite problems, with predictable outcomes.
  5. Customization: With various colored bands available, you can personalize your braces to reflect your unique style and personality.

What to Expect When Getting Traditional Metal Braces

At Speaker Orthodontics, we believe in providing personalized care and attention to our patients. When you choose traditional metal braces as your orthodontic treatment option, you can trust that you’re in good hands with Dr. Speaker and our experienced team. We’ll conduct a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation to assess your needs, concerns, and treatment goals.

Once your treatment plan is customized to address your unique orthodontic issues, we’ll carefully place the metal brackets onto your teeth and secure them with orthodontic wires and elastic bands. We’ll schedule regular appointments throughout your treatment journey to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments, and ensure that your braces effectively guide your teeth into alignment.

How to Care For Your Braces

Caring for your braces and maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for ensuring the success of your orthodontic treatment and the health of your teeth and gums. First and foremost, brushing your teeth thoroughly after every meal and snack is essential to remove food particles and plaque that can accumulate around the brackets and wires. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, brushing gently at a 45-degree angle to clean the teeth and the braces.

Additionally, daily flossing is essential for removing plaque and debris between the teeth and the braces. Use a floss threader or special orthodontic floss to navigate the wires and brackets. Rinse your mouth with water or an antibacterial mouthwash to help eliminate any remaining bacteria and freshen your breath. 

Finally, avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage your braces, and attend regular check-ups with your orthodontist for adjustments and professional cleanings. With consistent care and good oral hygiene practices, you can ensure that your braces treatment progresses smoothly and your smile stays healthy and beautiful.
