Metal Braces

Compare 15 clinics

Metal braces belong to the most popular types of braces. Metal braces are all-times classics when it comes to dental braces and remains so despite the existence of lingual braces (braces behind teeth), clear braces or Invisalign. Why is that? Despite the fact that some people feel uncomfortable wearing braces, the majority of those who want to straighten teeth do not have a problem with visible dental braces.
More than that, metal braces cost is often lower than other types of braces for teeth. More cost-aware people may afford them while they can’t buy Invisalign or other new types of braces. In the same time, metal braces guarantee teeth straightening as much as other types.

Clear Braces vs Metal Braces
Clear braces enjoy increasing popularity in orthodontics. However, this increase is caused mostly by people who do not like wearing braces which are clearly visible, such as metal braces. Many orthodontic specialists agree that metal braces are more durable than clear braces and for this reason, they break harder and lead to faster teeth straightening.

Getting Braces
There are two stages of getting braces. Firstly, orthodontist takes pictures, x-rays, and moulds of one’s teeth in order to create metal braces. The second stage of metal braces procedure is to install custom-made teeth braces on one’s teeth.
Additionally, one’s adventure with dental braces does not finish with getting braces. People wearing metal braces and other types of braces need to visit their orthodontic specialists every few months in order to make corrections. In this way, wearing braces leads to gradual teeth straightening.

Metal Braces Candidates

The best candidates for the metal braces procedure are people who think about getting braces and do not care about the fact that they will be visible.
Additionally, not every orthodontic specialist can create other types of braces because special training is required for them. For this reason, metal braces and ceramic braces, together with clear braces are much more popular than lingual braces.

Am I Suitable for Metal Braces?

If you do not have a problem with your dental braces being visible due to your high self-esteem, metal braces are for you – they straighten teeth just as other types, besides this metal braces cost is usually lower, allowing you to save money for other needs.

Metal Braces Risks and Complications

While metal braces are generally a safe way to straighten teeth, they may cause some complications, similarly to other types of braces for teeth.
• Sores – especially in first months of using your metal braces for teeth, you may experience sores caused by wearing them. Still, this problem should fade as your mouth gets used to wearing braces.
• Tooth Decay – orthodontic specialists agree that teeth braces may increase the risk of tooth decay. On the other hand, crooked teeth also may lead to similar results so wearing braces is worth taking this risk.
• Metal Braces Breaking – sometimes your metal braces may break. However, this risk is lower than in clear braces since metal is more resistant to pressure put in order to straighten teeth.
