Metal Braces

Metal Braces are the longest-serving orthodontic treatment and have been improving smiles for years.

About this treatment

Although they get bad press for being unattractive, the team at Ten Orthodontics in Clapham believe Metal Braces are an extremely effective choice of treatment for producing functional, aesthetically-pleasing smiles.

If you were asked to describe braces you would probably come up with something resembling Metal Fixed Braces. They have been in use for many decades and are still a popular orthodontic treatment. Made from brackets and wires they are applied to the front of the teeth, producing forces to effectively move teeth into position during a gradual treatment process.

Who can benefit from metal braces?

Metal Braces are the most versatile orthodontic treatment because they are suitable for practically everyone. Unlike other braces and devices they can produce a large amount of movement and are suitable for most complex cases. Patients who have the following problems can benefit from treatment:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crooked and twisted teeth
  • Overcrowding

What are the pros and cons?

The main advantage of Metal Braces is that they work for a large proportion of patients, as they are able to achieve a lot of movement and are one of the only treatment options for many patients with complex orthodontic conditions. The system has come a long way in recent years and is more discreet than ever.

The only disadvantages are that the brace is highly visible, can be uncomfortable at times, especially at the beginning of treatment, and requires regular adjustments during the treatment process.

What are the alternatives?

If you have complex orthodontic problems your choice is limited because many of the newer treatments, though providing a greater level of aesthetics, are not suitable for complex cases. Damon Braces are a potential alternative to Metal Braces as they are a form of fixed brace and relatively discreet. If you are looking for an experienced practice that offer metal brace treatments in London, we will be happy to discuss treatment options with you and provide information about the different systems.
