Are you concerned about the natural positioning of your teeth and bite? Have you considered getting braces, but you are not excited about the possibility of rocking a heavy metal look on your teeth? Mini-metal braces may be the answer to your concerns! These orthodontic appliances work to straighten the teeth with smaller hardware than traditional metal braces. Discover the benefits during a consultation with Dr. Allen Davis at Davis Orthodontics in Escondido or San Diego, CA!
What Are Mini-Metal Braces?
Mini-metal braces are similar to the braces most people think of. These braces involve attaching metal brackets to the front of teeth, and metal archwires are attached to the brackets. This encourages the movement of teeth.
While this may sound like any other style of braces, these braces are much smaller than traditional metal braces. In some instances, these mini-metal braces may even be up to 30 percent smaller than traditional braces! However, they are able to accomplish the same quality results as they are still made of stainless steel to effectively reposition teeth.
What Are the Benefits of this Type of Braces?
Mini-metal braces offer a range of benefits for those seeking orthodontic treatments to improve the appearance and structure of their teeth. Benefits of choosing these smaller metal braces include:
- Ability to personalize braces with colored elastics
- Generally easy to keep clean
- Less noticeable than traditional braces
- Made of stainless steel for strong performance
- Reduced discomfort inside the mouth
- Smaller hardware or braces
It is important to keep in mind the results achieved with mini-metal braces will vary for each person and their experiences. The best results may take some time to achieve, but, with the help of these small but powerful braces, you may be able to do so with less discomfort or without feeling self-conscious.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Mini-metal braces may help most people seeking an option to straighten teeth and correct bite problems. Braces may be recommended to individuals of all ages who are unhappy with or concerned about the natural positioning of their teeth and mouth. This particular style of braces may be appealing to those who are interested in a traditional style of braces.
A consultation with us at either of our San Diego area offices can help determine if these braces are right for you. Dr. Davis will review your health, goals, and preferences in addition to performing an oral exam to deliver you a custom treatment plan.
