Traditional metal braces typically come to mind when thinking of braces. Compared to metal braces in the past, modern metal braces are smaller and flatter, with less bulk and significantly more comfort. Our Upper West Side, NYC orthodontist routinely uses metal orthodontic braces for many of our patients.

Typically made of high-grade stainless steel, traditional metal braces remain by far the most common type of fixed orthodontic braces appliance and the most affordable. These braces consist of metal bands that wrap around the molars in the back and smaller metal brackets that are cemented to the front surfaces of the other teeth. A thin, springy metal wire, running through the brackets, gently guides the teeth into a proper position.

There are many good reasons why time-tested metal braces remain popular — because they offer a reliable, effective, and economical treatment option. In contrast to the appliances of the past, today’s braces are actually smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to wear. If you want a less traditional look, you may be able to choose colorful elastics for the brackets or other modifications.

Advantages of Metal Orthodontic Braces

  • Metal brackets tend to be the most affordable of all types of braces.
  • They tend to take the least amount of time among all the types of braces.
  • You can choose a darker ligature, which will not show stains.
  • Self-ligating brackets do not contain rubber ligatures, so staining will never be a problem.
  • They are strong and rarely break depending on your eating habits.
