From Braces to Beautiful

Traditional Metal Braces in Nashville

Correcting the Alignment of the Teeth & Jaw

Traditional metal braces remain the most common type of braces, and advances in technology have made them more comfortable than ever before. What are traditional braces? Metal braces straighten the teeth using metal brackets and archwires that are made of high-grade stainless steel. At Braces By Dr. Ruth, our orthodontist offers traditional metal braces in Nashville to correct a range of problems.

How Traditional Braces Work

Braces apply gentle, yet steady pressure to gradually move the teeth into the correct position. The brackets are placed on the teeth and an adhesive is used to keep them in place. The archwire connects the brackets and works by applying the pressure needed to move the teeth into their new position. Advances in dental technology have made traditional metal braces smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable for patients. Our Nashville orthodontist uses teeth braces to correct several problems.

Braces can correct a variety of problems, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding
  • A misaligned bite
  • Orthodontic problems that interfere with eating or speaking

Once your braces are on, they will need to be tightened periodically to provide sufficient pressure where it is needed to align your jaw and straighten your teeth. The length of time braces need to be worn varies widely, depending on the specific problems and correction that is needed.

Traditional Braces vs Invisalign

There are several differences between Invisalign and traditional metal braces. The most obvious difference is the cost of Invisalign vs traditional braces.
