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.

Rating from 14 Reviews My smile still looks top notch.Mel, Cape Town, 06 Jun 16

I went for dental bonding to close a gap. Everything was clearly explained and all the options were given to me. It was successfully done. No, hassles. My smile still looks top notch. The reason I chose it because it was close to home and there was no consultation fee. First stepping inside the building I was surprised by how busy it was, which told me that people trusted this place. I was also happy that all the latest dental procedures are available here. The dentist who took care of me was friendly and professional. Thanks, KDC. Awesome work.
