When traditional braces may be the right choice for you!

Straightening the teeth is straightforward with orthodontic treatment. However, many patients avoid asking their Manteca, California, area dentist about straightening the teeth for fear of being told traditional metal braces are the only type of braces that will help them achieve their desired results. Fortunately, metal braces have come a long way, and our team is here to help provide effective treatment using this method that has been tried and true!

Are metal braces suitable?

Metal braces are the go-to solution for many of our patients at Family Dental Center. We help patients determine whether or not they can benefit from this or alternative solutions. These continue to be the most effective solution for those with moderate to severe misalignment.

Why patients choose traditional metal braces for smile alignment

There are many reasons why patients choose traditional metal braces for smile alignment.

  • Effective. One of the most common reasons is that metal braces are highly effective at correcting dental problems. They can effectively move teeth into the correct position, improving both the appearance and function of the smile.
  • Affordable. Another reason that patients often choose metal braces is that they are affordable. Traditional metal braces are much more affordable than other types of orthodontic treatments, such as Invisalign. That makes them a popular choice for patients on a budget.
  • Better for severe cases. Finally, many patients choose traditional metal braces because they are durable and long-lasting. They are best for patients with more severe alignment issues such as overcrowding, underbites, and overbites.
  • Tried-and-true, predictable results. Because metal braces have been used for decades, they have proven effective and reliable in addressing patients’ unique problems. Adjustments to the metal wires can assist in tweaking the smile alignment as needed.
