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, we offer patients who choose metal braces a version that is self-ligating. This type of braces does not have elastic ties that can trap and collect plaque, making them a more hygienic option. Self-ligating braces allow the teeth to move faster and more comfortably thanks to its innovative slide mechanism that holds the wire.
