At Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, we know that a healthy, beautiful smile can make a big difference in your life. Metal braces are a popular, effective, and affordable orthodontic treatment option that can help you find the smile you've always wanted.

What Are Metal Braces?

Metal braces are the most common type of braces used in orthodontic treatment. The brackets, wires, and elastic bands gradually straighten your teeth over time, leading to an incredible smile.

How Metal Braces Work

Our braces work by applying gentle pressure to your teeth over time. The brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth, and the wires are threaded through them and secured with elastic bands.

As Dr. Freedman or Dr. Haas adjusts the wires, they gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. Once they’re done, your smile is straight, happy, and healthy.

How Metal Braces Help You

At Freedman & Haas, our high-quality metal braces are up to the task of fixing a number of common and uncommon dental issues, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Impacted teeth

You’ve Got Options

While traditional metal braces are still the most common, we offer a variety of newer models, including:

Self-Ligating Metal Braces

Similar to traditional metal braces but these state-of-the-art appliances use a specialized clip to hold the wire in place instead of elastic bands. This reduces friction and makes the braces more comfortable.

Each bracket can make micro-adjustments to the tension of the wire on the fly, which can shorten your treatment times, too!

Lingual Braces

These metal braces rest on the back of your teeth instead of the front, making them virtually invisible from the outside.

While they can take a bit to learn how to properly clean and adjust, lingual braces are a discreet option for those who want to straighten their teeth without calling attention to the treatment process.

  • Powerful treatment: Metal braces are super efficient for correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, crooked teeth, and bite problems.
  • Affordable cost: Traditional braces are cost-effective and widely available, making them accessible for many patients.
  • Durability: Metal braces are strong, resistant, and long-lasting, so you can be sure that your investment in your smile will pay off over time.
  • Personality: You can use colorful elastics to customize your brackets so that your braces reflect your personal style.
