Learning About Metal Braces

Metal braces are a cornerstone of orthodontic treatment and have grown and changed over the years. Today, Storms & Swiderski Orthodontics is proud to bring you self-ligating metal braces, a modern twist on the classic solution.

Your Metal Companion

High-grade stainless steel is used to make metal braces, providing a hard-working and durable treatment option. Braces use two main components to correct your smile.

  • Brackets: We attach metal brackets directly to your tooth. Think of these as anchor points for the force needed to move your smile.
  • Archwire: The wire is then put through each bracket, connecting your teeth to complete your braces.

The wire is normally adjusted every so often when you visit your orthodontist to keep that gentle pressure on your smile. But, with self-ligating braces, they’ll adjust themselves, so you can spend more time doing what you want and not at our office.

The Self-Ligating Difference

Standard metal braces use elastics around your brackets to help hold the wire in place. Self-ligating braces instead use a built-in device that closes around the wire. This device makes your braces less noticeable and more comfortable.

The main advantage of self-ligating metal braces is the fewer amount of adjustments you’ll need during your treatment. This means fewer visits to our office and more time to enjoy your life while on your journey to a perfect smile.

As an added perk, with no elastics, you’ll have less plaque build-up, making keeping your smile clean and healthy a breeze.
