About Traditional Metal Braces in Canton, GA

Traditional metal braces have come a long way over the years with state-of-the-art technologies and great advances in the various types of orthodontic treatments, making them more comfortable and affordable than before. MINT dentistry in Canton, GA performs several orthodontic treatments to help you get a healthy, beautiful smile. Traditional braces offer customization options that are not available with other treatments. Many of our patients choose metal braces because it allows them to share their personalities by choosing colors of elastics. This fun feature is popular for young adults and teens who can wear seasonal colors or show their support for their favorite sports team. For more information about braces and other orthodontic treatments, make a consultation to speak to one of our board-certified dental professionals.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Traditional Braces?

Metal braces can be a wonderful option for adults and children who desire straighter teeth. Our conventional braces are made with high-grade, stainless steel archwires attached to brackets, which are strategically set to move your teeth gently into optimal position. They are frequently a great treatment for adults and kids with a misaligned jaw, teeth that are crowded or have gaps, or underbites or overbites. MINT dentistry also utilizes high-quality elastics that are simple to put on and won't snap easily. At your consultation, your team will discuss your treatment options and help you select the approach that suits your goals and lifestyle.

What Is the Process of Getting Braces?

One of our MINT dentistry team members will create an orthodontic plan that treats all of your needs. On the day of your appointment, we'll ask you to sit in one of our relaxing treatment chairs in a comfortable procedure room. After slipping on a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses and a set of Beats headphones, your teeth will be prepared and cleaned before we put on your braces. Once we have applied the bonding agent to your teeth, your metal brackets will be placed on each tooth. As soon as the brackets are set, we will thread the archwire through. You will then be able to pick your elastic band color(s). The bands make sure the wire stays attached to the brackets. Generally, the application process is quick and patients usually feel no pain. You will need to return to our Canton, GA office every 4 – 6 weeks for progress exams and adjustments.

What Happens After Braces Are Placed?

With metal braces, it can be harder to clean your teeth in the same way as before. However, proper oral hygiene is essential to your orthodontic treatment. Before you leave with your new braces, our team will teach you how to best clean your teeth and provide you with helpful tips. Our team encourages you to brush and floss your teeth after every meal. Keeping all your orthodontic appointments and twice-yearly cleanings will help to give you better results. Typically, patients wear braces for a couple of years, but your treatment time will ultimately depend on the starting alignment of your teeth. After your teeth are aligned, we will take your braces off and move you into a retainer. A MINT dentistry professional will help you choose the right retainer for your needs.

Metal braces remain a less expensive option when paired up against newer orthodontic treatments. At your first appointment at MINT dentistry, we will go over your options and cost estimates so you can select the method that matches your goals and budget. If you have insurance, our financial coordinator will contact your provider to clarify your coverage and then calculate your out-of-pocket costs. For patients without insurance, our Canton, GA facility takes a variety of payment methods and a member of our staff can tell you how to apply for medical financing plans.
