Metal braces are the most common type of braces, and have been used by many people over the years to correct all sorts of common problems and misalignments. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and combine brackets and wires to straighten and align teeth. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than the braces used by orthodontists in the past.
Metal braces can be customized with colorful rubber elastic bands, allowing wearers to express themselves and feel unique.
These braces are durable and relatively easy to keep clean, although wearers must avoid certain foods, like chewy foods, sticky foods, particularly hard foods and more.
