Traditional Orthodontics in East Mississauga

If you suffer from severe teeth alignment issues, your dentist may recommend traditional orthodontics. Metal braces are commonly used to straighten teeth and consist of metal brackets, wires and elastics that are bonded to your teeth for the duration of the treatment.

When Should I Use Metal Braces?

Your dentist will take scans and assess your teeth to determine the severity of the misalignment. While minor orthodontic problems may be treated with Invisalign clear plastic aligners, more serious issues must be treated with traditional orthodontics. Metal braces are commonly used by children, teens and adults.

Taking Care of Your Metal Braces

When you are fitted with metal braces, it is essential to brush your teeth twice a day. Use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste and floss your teeth as well. You will also want to avoid hard, crunchy, and sticky foods that can damage your metal braces. Your dentist may recommend more frequent dental hygiene appointments during your orthodontic treatment.
