Your Healthiest Smile Starts at Hyman Orthodontics
Our experienced orthodontists offer 5-star-rated treatment options, including traditional braces in Montebello, CA. Depending on your age, when someone mentions metal braces as an orthodontic treatment, the picture that probably comes to mind is a mouth full of metal and wires. Metal bands were placed around each tooth and those bands were connected by wires, which had to be tightened every 4-6 weeks. The fact is metal braces used to be a lot more cumbersome than they are now.
You’ll Appreciate the Difference in Today’s Metal Braces
Over the years, metal braces have undergone drastic improvements to make them more attractive and comfortable. One of the most important changes came during the 1970s, with the availability of a new adhesive strong enough to hold metal brackets directly on the teeth. At the same time, stainless steel became a popular metal for making braces. Thanks to these changes, today’s braces are considerably less bulky than the ones of the past!
What Are Traditional Metal Braces?
Traditional braces have metal brackets placed on your teeth with a strong adhesive. Every so often, you will need to visit our office to get the wires connecting the brackets tightened. This tightening causes pressure on your teeth – as this pressure is applied your teeth gradually begin to move. In this way, your teeth become straighter and aligned in your jaw.
Even with other braces options available today, conventional metal braces have not lost their popularity. Metal braces are usually less expensive than alternative methods of straightening teeth, plus they are proven to be more effective when treating complicated cases. For these reasons and more, they are still the most common type of braces people choose.
Smile Throughout Your Treatment with Clear Braces
Hyman Orthodontics is pleased to also offer clear braces as a more subtle option than conventional metal braces. Patients enjoy the following benefits of wearing our beautiful, crystal clear braces:
- Clear braces won’t become stained from eating certain foods or beverages.
- Your teeth are straightened in a shorter period of time.
- Your brackets match the color of your teeth – most people don’t even realize you are undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Clear braces offer all of this, plus the tried-and-true effectiveness and durability you would expect from traditional metal braces. Contact us today to see if clear braces are right for you!
