Still the most common type of braces, traditional metal braces are brackets attached to patients’ teeth and held together with an arch wire. Your Florence, SC orthodontist will place the bracket to a specific spot on your tooth so that when your treatment is complete, the arch wire will appear perfectly straight. The arch wire is attached to the brackets using tiny rubber bands called ligatures. You can choose whatever colors you want, which makes it fun for holidays or special events.

Braces can correct a wide variety of problems, some of which might even be causing speech impediments. Other conditions may include crossbites, underbites, overbites, gaps, overcrowding, and more.

Things To Know

Keep in mind when reading this, that each patient is different and so even though something is listed below, you personally may never experience it throughout your entire treatment of braces.

  • After an adjustment, you may experience some soreness or aching in the mouth.
  • Your Florence, SC, orthodontist will advise against eating certain foods as they can get caught in your braces or cause one of the brackets to come off.
  • Brackets may irritate your gums when they are first put on. Your orthodontist in Florence will provide you with orthodontic wax to help this problem.
  • Brush, brush, brush your teeth.

One of the most important things to remember is to brush your teeth often when having braces. There are so many more crevices for food and bacteria to hide.

At our orthodontic office in Florence, SC, we always provide a friendly, consultative approach to you or your child’s potential treatment. We say potential because you or your child may not even require braces! Let us help you determine that in our office with our orthodontists.
