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.

They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortableRobert, US, 03 10 22

4 years and Satisfied! Dr. Hartshorne is one in a Million.The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding. Undoubtedly the best dental-related experience I’ve ever had. From the first day I visited this office I’ve felt as though I’ve been cared for and treated in the best possible way. I had 5 Implants. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The result from my dental implants was great.. about 8 months later, one tooth seemed to be a bit lose, but he had warned me that it rarely ever happens, but if it does, feel free to come in, we'll take care of it, and he did. Also note that the office and operating rooms are incredibly clean. I also found it nice that they do everything from the consultation to the procedure at the same place. Modern Equipment in a nice facility with a doctor that knows his job was a game changer for me. The Money, was worth my Smile. Every visit was like visiting friends

I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellentNicole, South Africa, 09 08 21

Amazing staff. I went in with badly damaged/ broken teeth, from ongoing stress and grinding, and on a really tight budget. I was also pretty traumatised after a difficult life challenge and the staff were were gentle, kind, supportive and helpful. Dr Parker also gave me a discount and squeezed an additional bit of work on a broken front tooth, which was causing me some embarrassment, because in her words, "She wanted me to feel better." I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent! Thank you to all at Kromboom Dental Center.
