What are metal braces?
Metal braces are the original teeth-straightening method, but modern technology has made them more effective than ever. Metal braces use a system of brackets, archwires and elastics to apply gentle pressure to your teeth and guide them into alignment.
The metal brackets are fixed to the front of each tooth and the archwire runs through them. This all is held in place with elastics, which you can personalise in fun colours. You will come in for regular adjustment appointments so Dr Lasni can bend your archwire to guide treatment along.
