Metal braces

The tried and trusted teeth straightening solution

Metal braces are the original teeth straightening method, and this time-tested treatment has come a long way since the first models. Modern metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more accurate than ever before.

What are metal braces?

Metal braces are what people usually picture when they think of orthodontic treatment. These braces consist of metal brackets, thin metal archwires and small elastics that can be customised with a variety of fun colours.

Metal braces are one of the few treatments available on the NHS. They are also the most cost-effective treatment option, and can be used to treat almost all orthodontic cases from simple to complex. Most patients experience fantastic results in just 9 to 24 months!

How do metal braces work?

When you decide to start treatment with metal braces, your Specialist Orthodontist will affix a small metal bracket to the front side of each tooth with special orthodontic adhesive. They will then run a metal archwire through your brackets, and hold it all together with elastics.

Throughout treatment, you will come in to Lincoln Orthodontics for adjustment appointments, where your Specialist Orthodontist will place precise bends in your archwires to apply targeted pressure to your teeth. This gentle pressure will slowly guide your teeth into proper alignment.
