    Traditional Metal Braces

    Metal braces feature brackets and wires that are glued to the teeth to help them connect and move. They work by putting pressure on the teeth and slowly moving them to correct crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth. Metal brackets are adjusted periodically by your orthodontist in the office.

    How long can I expect to wear traditional metal braces?

    The length of treatment depends on your particular situation. On average, individuals wear braces for approximately one to three years.
