Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are a tried and true method to repair crooked teeth—and they’re not as bulky and uncomfortable as they used to be!

At Merion Village Dental, we’re happy to provide traditional braces as an option for teeth straightening. Many people think metal braces to be painful and cumbersome, but dental technology has greatly improved their structure over the years. One of the most common straightening techniques, traditional braces consist of metal brackets and wires that are adjusted periodically to move teeth into their ideal position.

With traditional braces, we can provide a solution that:

  • Works for both children and adults
  • Straightens teeth gradually, with periodic tightening
  • Corrects problems with misaligned bites and jaws
  • Eliminates problems with eating, speaking, and keeping teeth clean
  • Boosts your confidence by improving your smile

How do traditional braces work?

Traditional braces refer to the metal brackets and wires we all picture in our heads. Thankfully, modern brackets are much more comfortable and visually appealing.

With traditional braces, dentist have the power to control teeth movement in small increments. In some cases, rubber bands will be used in addition to making gradual adjustments. On average, most people will have braces between one to three years, but like any dental treatment, it depends on the individual.

At your first appointment, we’ll conduct a consultation and take an impression of your teeth. We’ll create a virtual treatment plan, so you can visualize your smile before treatment begins!
