What are metal braces made of?
We’re proud to use high-quality metal brackets manufactured by American Orthodontics. These high-grade metal alloy brackets are made out of a number of components, including carbon, aluminum, silicon, molybdenum, nickel, and chromium. Stainless steel braces are strong, won’t rust or corrode, and are safe to submerge in water (of course).
Your Personalized Treatment Plan with Metal Braces
Throughout your braces treatment, every 6 to 8 weeks (depending on your personalized treatment plan), you’ll visit us to check-in on your progress and adjust your braces. During these appointments, we’ll ensure that you’re on the right track to your radiant, healthy smile!
At your braces adjustment appointments, we may replace your archwire and adjust a bracket or two, and you’ll have the option to choose from a variety of colored rubber bands to replace your old rubber bands. You can get creative with your metal braces colors to express your style!
