Metal Braces 101

“Metal braces are by far the most common form of orthodontics. They are made from a high-grade stainless steel. Metal braces will straighten your teeth by using an intricate bracket and wire system that is cemented onto your teeth. Metal braces can treat a variety of alignment issues and are often the go-to method when dealing with more complex, severe teeth and bite alignment problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Damon bracket system?

At Meason Orthodontics, we use the Damon System. The Damon System utilizes passive, self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic bands. The advanced wire system also moves your teeth at a fast rate that require fewer in-office adjustments. Damon braces are available in both traditional metal and clear so that you can discreetly straighten your teeth. Visit their website to learn more!

When should I get traditional braces instead of alternative methods, such as Invisalign®?

There is no clear cut answer as to which orthodontic treatment you should get. It really all comes down to the severity of your alignment issues, your lifestyle, and your budget. Typically, braces are used for more complex orthodontic cases, whereas Invisalign is generally for patients with mild to moderate teeth straightening needs. At your consultation, we’ll help you determine which orthodontic method best suits your needs.
