What are conventional braces?

Conventional braces, also known as traditional braces, use brackets bonded to the teeth and anchored together with an archwire. These brackets can be made of metal or ceramic. Throughout orthodontic treatment, our team will tighten the wire and make adjustments to gradually straighten the teeth. Unlike other orthodontic treatments, conventional braces remain a reliable solution for complex problems like crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and more.
