Advanced Metal Braces in Austin, TX
Get Your Best Smile with Durable, Effective Treatment
In some cases, advanced metal braces in Austin, TX, are the best option for aligning your smile and improving your dental health. While they may not be the newest method of straightening teeth, metal braces have made significant technological advances in recent years. The ways that metal braces are used is not the same as it was 10 or even 5 years ago. Our braces are smaller and we utilize an advanced, self-ligating brace with a locking-door mechanism to hold the wire in place with less friction and more efficient tooth movement. While some of the experiences may be similar, the materials are now stronger and more resilient to standard wear and tear, and the wires are space-age technology that moves the teeth with light continuous force.
Metal Braces – Tried & True
There is a reason that traditional metal braces are still around. This method for aligning your smile and bite is still incredibly effective! When discreet treatment isn’t a necessity, or when you don’t want the responsibility of changing your aligners, traditional metal braces are still a highly-reliable and sometimes preferable treatment option for straightening teeth.
Faster Treatment & Fewer Office Visits
Our self-ligating braces use advanced technology that straightens your teeth faster with fewer adjustment appointments. The difference is the ability to fully activate the wires at each visit — the wires are what actually moves the tooth. Self-ligating brackets keep the wire fully engaged without the high friction elastic ties, this allows the wire to work at its full potential without frequent activation visits. Traditional braces treatment lasts 30 months on average with adjustments every 4 weeks, with advanced self-ligating braces, you can expect a 35% faster treatment time than traditional metal braces, with less frequent visits (every 8–10 weeks)!
Mix & Match Colors with Metal Braces
Colored bands can be one of the most fun things about having braces! Whether you want to wear your favorite color, show school pride, or represent your favorite sports team, you will get a fun, new look every time you get an adjustment!
Metal Braces Are Sturdy & Effective
Traditional metal braces today are made from stronger materials and use state of the art adhesive bonding to attach to the teeth instead of metal bands used a decade ago. The end result is fewer broken brackets that might otherwise extend the length of your treatment.
