7 major benefits of Metal Braces
Posted on 05/23/2022

So, you’ve been visiting your hometown St. Paul orthodontist and now Dr. Meister or Dr. Syverson has recommended proceeding with braces? While there are multiple choices for teeth straightening these days, not much beats traditional metal braces.

How do metal braces work?

Metal braces, made of stainless steel, consist of brackets bonded directly to your teeth, connected by a thin wire. Braces work by applying pressure to realign the position of teeth.

Why should I choose metal braces?

At Meister Orthodontics, we will work with you to decide what kind of braces are the most suitable for your specific situation. When it comes to metal braces, there are seven major benefits to consider:

  • Metal Braces Are Efficient:

    Traditional metal braces have been around for a very long time, and that’s because they work!
  • Metal Braces Are More Affordable:

    Orthodontic work can be pricey, but metal braces are typically the least expensive option for braces.
  • Metal Braces Are Sturdier:

    The tough metal material creates a sturdy foundation with smaller chances of breakage or damage.
  • Metal Braces Work Quickly:

    Treatment time can vary depending on multiple factors, but metal braces tend to work quickly. While aligners such as Invisalign may have a similar or shorter treatment time at the start, often the removable nature of the treatment leads to extended treatment time when they are not worn consistently or correctly.
  • Metal Braces Are Versatile:

    One of the greatest things about metal braces is they are suitable for every age and orthodontic issue, from mild to severe.
  • Metal Braces Stay Attached:

    Because brackets are bonded directly onto the teeth, those suckers aren’t going anywhere. Because they don’t move and can’t be removed, treatment will remain more consistent, and therefore effective.
  • Metal Braces Are Fun:

    Wait, what? Did we just say braces are… FUN?! Don’t write us off just yet, we have a point to make! Particularly with our younger patients, choices can be made to customize braces with fun, colored bands. Show off your personality or support your favorite team by mixing and matching band colors!
