Your Healthy Smile Starts at Hyman Orthodontics
So, you need braces. Does that idea thrill you or scare you? If it is the latter, it is okay to admit that. We see many patients who are scared to start treatment, often because they have heard some not-so-great things about traditional metal braces. Which is why we want to set the record straight.
Once upon a time, traditional metal braces did have some problems. They were large, awkward, and not as effective as they could have been. But those braces are a thing of the past.
The Difference Between Then and Now
Over the last few decades, braces manufacturers and orthodontics experts have been working to transform traditional metal braces. The result is braces that are more attractive, comfortable, and effective. Braces are now fixed to the teeth using a special adhesive and the use of stainless steel allows them to be smaller and lighter. Even the wires have been reworked a bit to make them more exact in the way they deliver force. The result is more accurate results in less time than seen before.
Understanding Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are what you pictures—more or less—when you think of braces. They have metal brackets and wires and the brackets are fixed to the teeth. The wires direct pressure to the teeth to move them. Every so many weeks, patients come in to have the wires adjusted to keep their treatment moving along.
Why Use Traditional Metal Braces?
There are many other options on the market, so why should you choose traditional metal braces? Well, they are highly effective and widely available, but perhaps the biggest reason is cost. These braces are cheaper than any other appliance, making them ideal for those who are paying out of pocket for treatment.
Additionally, not all orthodontic problems can be treated by all types of braces. In some cases, traditional metal braces are the only or best option.

- 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!
