Are there benefits to traditional metal braces?

The metal braces that were once utilized for orthodontic treatment are still around, although they are largely supplanted by other orthodontic procedures. While metal braces provide certain advantages, they also have some drawbacks – mostly cosmetic. The preference is usually for clear braces or self-ligating braces.

Traditional braces are also durable and can withstand the pressure of moving the teeth into their correct positions. While traditional braces are not the most comfortable or convenient option, they can be an effective way to straighten teeth and improve oral health.

Metal braces cost

Because metal brackets can be a low-cost option and can correct a wide range of orthodontic problems, metal braces have some merits. Naturally, traditional braces can be adjusted to adjust the amount of force applied to the teeth, allowing for pinpoint control of the treatment.
