Traditional Braces at Braces Braces
Helping Families Achieve Happier, Healthier Smiles.
Traditional braces are one of the most popular and affordable orthodontic options. They can correct crowded teeth, eliminate unwanted gaps, and align the jaw. While many people still associate traditional metal braces with a “metal mouth,” this treatment has improved over the years, in terms of comfort, appearance and timelines!
Braces Braces offers traditional braces with sleek bracket systems for patients of all ages in Atlanta. Because we see the whole family, you can save time and book appointments together. This is convenient for families with multiple children who need braces, but it also helps adults who always wanted straight teeth. You can book your treatment right alongside your child—for a lot of kids, seeing their parents go through the orthodontic process makes them feel more comfortable.
What to Know About Metal Braces
Today’s traditional metal braces consist of smaller, sleeker brackets adhered to the teeth and connected by wires to slowly straighten you or your child’s teeth over time. Under the care of our board certified orthodontists, your metal braces are periodically tightened to align your teeth as efficiently and comfortably as possible.
Thanks to the advent of heat-activated arch wires (a technology developed by NASA), metal braces now work with the heat in your mouth to gently straighten the arch wire back to its original form. You’ll experience more comfort and you won’t have to visit us as often for treatment.
There are also many fun options for kids with traditional braces. We can place colorful rubber bands around the brackets, allowing children to express themselves through a variety of bright, trendy tones!
And if you’re worried about braces cost, traditional braces are the most affordable treatment option for patients.
How to Take Care of Braces
Brushing and flossing twice a day is important, as is rinsing after meals. This prevents food from getting under your brackets and wires, which can lead to cavities or decay. You may need to use special flossers to make flossing with braces easier.
If you feel discomfort on the side of your mouth, you can place some wax on your brackets to avoid scraping as you adjust to metal braces. Your orthodontist will have wax for you.
If a wire comes loose, you should call your office. The team at Braces Braces will let you know if you can clip the wire and wait for your next visit, or if an emergency appointment is necessary. In the rare case that a bracket comes loose, you should also contact your orthodontist.

How to Decide on the Right Type of Braces for You
You can choose from traditional metal braces, clear braces or Invisalign aligners at Braces Braces. Not all types of braces will fit all orthodontic needs, and they don’t all fit every budget either. Visit one of our eight offices located around Atlanta to talk to one of the experienced orthodontists here. Our team loves helping patients find the right treatment plan! For a fully comprehensive experience, we look into not just why braces are needed, but the overall health of your mouth.
To determine how the different orthodontic treatments will address your needs and goals, your orthodontist will go over what you hope to achieve with braces, examine and assess the mouth, and take digital X-rays of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment fixes a number of issues with function and appearance. We begin to develop a customized treatment plan at your very first consultation.
The Braces Braces team is also available to help you navigate the financial reality of braces, so it’s not a burden on your budget. Our practice accepts most major insurance plans and offers multiple financing options.
