The Traditional Metal Braces

 

Why Metal braces are a great option for your kids?  -  S10@Clinic

You’ve finally heard the most dreaded words, “Your child needs braces”. Don’t hit the panic button. There’s nothing to worry!  Braces are not as scary as you may think. In fact the modern day braces are sleek and stylish and can move your child’s teeth more efficiently, effectively and comfortably than ever before. Though there are many options available out there, the traditional metal braces are by far the most common choice for kids. Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was wrapped around each tooth. Today, metal braces jazzed up with colourful bands make them fun and fashionable for your child to wear! Choosing colors gives kids a reason to be excited about their braces. So why wait?  Let kids have some fun with them and express themselves with a colorful smile!

How do these metal gadgets work?  Small metal brackets are glued to your child’s teeth and connected by wires. These work to move your child’s teeth, backed up with rubber bands to hold the two components together. Your child gets to choose the colors of the bands. The option of adding colored rubber bands helps to make a fashion statement and also add a little fun to the treatment. So, metal braces are not something your child needs to feel self-conscious about, but rather a chance to express themselves. Let your child embrace the change and smile throughout the treatment!

Traditional metal braces are by far the most common choice of braces for kids and the reasons being

Most cost effective: Metal braces remain as one of the most affordable treatment option to straighten your child’s teeth or correct a bad bite. If you are on a budget metal braces are the way to go!

Cool colors make it a fashion statement: By opting for bright colored bands kids can show off their style and individuality. Kids can choose from a wide selection of vibrant colors. They can pick colors to show off their creativity or mood. They can also mix and match to go with their outfits.

Corrects complex problems: From spacing to crowding, traditional braces are effective in fixing all types of orthodontic issues much faster than other methods.

Durability: These traditional metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel or titanium and are exceptionally durable and strong. Hence, they can withstand the rough and tumble of the kids’ lives.
