What are Metal Braces?

Metal Braces are orthodontic appliances made of stainless steel or titanium. They are suitable for patients of all ages. They are the cheapest among braces and are considered the most effective. Once fitted, metal braces exert pressure on the tooth to move it to the correct position.  Orthodontists adjust the wires of metal braces at every appointment to make sure that the tooth moves correctly. It takes about one to three hours to fit metal braces.   

For how long should I wear Metal Braces?

Patients need to wear metal braces for two to four years. The time taken to correct tooth alignment depends on the age of the patient and the needs of each individual patient.   

Is having Metal Braces fitted painful?

Fitting metal braces is not a painful procedure. Patients will feel pain and discomfort after the braces are fitted, as pressure is exerted on the teeth to move them to their new position. The pain and discomfort diminishes as patients get used to their braces.

How are Metal Braces fitted?

The orthodontist will polish the teeth and paint the front surfaces with glue. The metal brackets will be pasted onto the teeth. A curing light is focused to fix the brackets. The orthodontist will thread a wire through the brackets and then place wires around the brackets to hold them in place.  

What care is required after fitting Metal Braces?

Patients should practice proper dental hygiene and brush and floss their teeth correctly. Patients should use fluoride toothpaste. They should not eat hard or chewy food items that will damage their braces. Patients should attend their orthodontist appointments to ensure the correct fianl position of the teeth is achieved.

Ballestero Dental Care - Dental Clinic in Costa Rica

Ballestero Dental Care

Torre Medica Pacific Plaza Hospital Cima Guanacaste, Comunidad, 5001
Rating from 1 Review The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 May 18

Two dentists in Canada recommended dental implants in place of my lower teeth. I was on vacation in Costa Rica and decided to get another opinion. I first approached another dentist in Coco but was turned off by his manner. I then sent my file to Dr. Ballestero. From that moment it was clear that Dr. B was different! He phoned me in Canada to discuss the recommendations and ultimately he recommended I do not go the full implant route. Not only was the cost less than 1/4 of the quotes I received in Canada - but the time, and care, and concern were far superior to what I had been receiving or have ever received from a dentist. I had the work done in March 2018 and the experience was amazing. Dr. Ballestero's professionalism coupled with his caring manner are unmatched. If there was a way to give him more than 5 stars I would! I would happily recommend Dr. Ballestero to anyone considering any level of dental treatment.
