METAL BRACES IN CERRITOS, CA

Braces are almost a rite of passage for most children, and adults often need them too! They are a tried-and-true way of correcting misaligned teeth to create an awesome smile. If you or your child need braces in Southern California, Orthodontist of Cerritos can help with traditional metal braces and the latest orthodontic innovations such as clear ceramic braces.

WHAT ARE METAL BRACES?

Traditional metal braces are pretty much the same braces you might remember from your teen years (if you are a parent). They work through gentle tension to guide each wayward tooth into the correct position to create a perfectly aligned, attractive smile. With years of successful usage, they are an orthodontic technique that has stood the test of time.

HOW DO METAL BRACES WORK?

Metal braces work via a set of wires that connect to metal brackets that adhere to the teeth. Elastics (“rubber” bands) hold the wires to the teeth. It’s actually the tension in the wires that does the job – the brackets are simply there to give the wires a part of the teeth to hold onto.

HOW ARE MODERN METAL BRACES DIFFERENT?

While we often call today’s metal braces “traditional metal braces,” they are, in fact, an improvement over the braces you might have worn as a kid. Today’s metal brackets are actually much smaller. Smaller brackets are less visible and far more comfortable. Additionally, today’s metal braces come in fashionable colors.

WHAT COLOR OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE WITH METAL BRACES?

Red, blue, green, purple – you name it. If your child needs metal braces, they can choose the color of the elastic bands that hold the wires to the brackets. This customization makes kids happy and is one of the reasons why metal braces don’t have the stigma with kids like they did in the past.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF METAL BRACES?

Once the braces are removed after a year or two of treatment, the benefits of metal braces will be obvious – you will see a stunning new smile with straight, even teeth. But today’s metal braces have other benefits as well:

  • Once you have straight teeth, your dental hygiene will be easier, and your overall oral health will be better.
  • You or your child will be able to speak and chew more easily.
  • Finally, metal braces are one of the most affordable options we have in correctional orthodontics.
