Metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable than ever before. The metal brackets and wires are small and sleek, making irritation inside the mouth much less problematic than braces of the past.
At Terrana Orthodontics, our metal braces are self-ligating, meaning the brackets utilize a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Self-Ligating braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Self-Ligating braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.
