At My Dental Team, metal braces are our most popular option to straighten teeth – especially for our teenage patients. We use the latest Victory SeriesTM Metal Braces that are similar to tradition braces but smaller and more comfortable. The main advantage of the metal braces is that they work the fastest, break the least and are the most affordable option.
The metal braces have three main components: a small curved metal bracket that we glue onto each tooth, a wire that is threaded along the brackets and the coloured Alastics that we use to tie the wire into place. At every appointment, we change these Alastics so our patients get to choose a new colour every time they come in.
