Why Braces?

For many patients, metal braces are an ideal solution. The benefits of braces are many, and yet when it is classic metal braces, there can be further benefits. Let’s consider:

More solutions

Though many patients want invisible aligners in order to enjoy privacy, not everyone is a candidate. Braces, however, can handle everything from misalignment and bite problems to issues related to the development of TMJ.

Rapid correction

Again, one of the major benefits of braces over other solutions is that they can work faster to correct the issues being addressed through the use of orthodontics. Though it can take a year or more, the use of braces tends to be faster.


Another key benefit is that almost any budget can afford to use traditional wire braces. The alternatives may be substantially higher in overall price, making them less appealing, though just as effective.

Not as painful

Over the years, there have been improvements in the design and use of braces, and there are many ways to ensure they are not as uncomfortable as they have been in the past.
