What Are Metal Braces?

This option consists of high-grade stainless steel brackets and wires, a proven orthodontic solution attached to the front of your teeth.

This traditional method has evolved to blend remarkable durability with precise alignment capabilities. Modern brackets effectively correct a wide range of dental misalignments.

How They Work

Metal brackets work by applying continuous, gentle pressure to your teeth. Dr. Brian and Dr. Lynn carefully adjust this consistent force to encourage your teeth to move into their correct positions. Over time, your teeth will slowly relocate where we want them.


Brackets are the core elements of metal braces. We securely attached them to each tooth. They act as anchors for the archwires.


Archwires connect to the brackets. They apply the necessary force to guide teeth into place. Adjustments to these wires are made during your appointments to maintain the right level of pressure needed.

Ligature Elastics (Rubber Bands)

Ligature elastics, commonly known as rubber bands, hold the archwire to your brackets. These small yet critical components can be customized with various colors to add a personal touch to your braces.
