About Our Traditional Braces

Although braces were invented in the 1700s, advancements in orthodontics have greatly improved their effectiveness, comfortability, and discreteness. With traditional metal braces, brackets which can be customized to show your unique style are attached to teeth. Using an archwire and elastics along with these brackets actually gently shifts your teeth into a more desirable position, improving the appearance, function and even health of your smile.

While wearing braces, patients are required to follow a somewhat strict diet, avoiding any foods that may get stuck to the braces or even damage them. Proper at-home dental care and routine visits to your orthodontist are also required to ensure the most successful treatment possible.

Benefits of Traditional Metal Braces

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, our Calgary braces have various benefits, which include that they:

  • Can be customized to allow patients to show off their unique style.
  • Improve the health of your smile, reducing your risk of decay and even gum disease.
  • Improve a patients smile, improving their self-confidence as well.
  • Can improve your ability to bite properly, chew and even eat.
