A straight, white smile is likely to attract your interest no matter who you are. Traditional metal braces, available at Pony Express Dental, can assist anyone who wants to straighten their teeth. We offer conventional braces at all of our locations: Daybreak, Eagle Mountain, and Saratoga Springs. Teenagers are the most common users of metal braces, although adults can also benefit from them. This method has been proven to be effective time and time again. Metal braces can help you reshape and improve your smile’s look.
The most common reason people get braces is to straighten their teeth. Traditional metal braces can address a wide range of dental problems outside of correcting alignment. They can correct overbites, underbites, and crossbites, as well as overcrowding. The procedure is simple and efficient. You’ll start to see benefits right away.
Traditional Braces Procedure
Traditional braces is a lengthy procedure, but it is painless. We’ve made sure you will be as comfortable as possible throughout the process. We fit each tooth with metal brackets that we cement into place. This process can take a long time because there must be no moisture in your mouth for the adhesive to operate correctly. Our orthodontist will try to keep your mouth as dry as possible using various equipment. We can add the wire after the brackets have been fixed.
Each bracket is made to attach to a wire. The U-shaped wire runs along the center of the patient’s mouth—the wire tugs each tooth, which causes it to migrate into a more straight posture. Over time, the braces will shift all of your teeth into the desired position. The archwire must be adjusted regularly for braces to move the teeth into a straighter alignment successfully. You will need to visit the dentist multiple times to have your wires tightened during your treatment time. The process is maintained by tightening the wire, which prevents your teeth from reverting to their former position.
We will determine the length of your operation by the degree of misalignment you begin with and the number of issues you want to address. However, the usual treatment time is 10 to 12 months. When you express an interest in traditional braces, we will schedule a consultation with you, during which we will discuss and build a customized treatment plan for you. We want you to understand the method entirely from the beginning.
