Metal Braces

Metal Braces

At Williams & Hamman Orthodontics, we recognize that a beautiful, confident smile is a powerful asset, and for many, the journey begins with orthodontic solutions.

Metal braces are a time-tested orthodontic solution designed to effectively correct misalignments and achieve a beautifully straight smile. Comprising high-quality stainless-steel brackets connected by archwires, metal braces exert controlled pressure on the teeth, guiding them into optimal positions over time. Renowned for their durability, metal braces offer a robust and reliable option for individuals seeking comprehensive orthodontic correction.

The Metal Braces Procedure

We begin with a thorough consultation to assess the patient's orthodontic needs. Our experienced orthodontist in Southaven, MS, conducts a detailed examination, including X-rays and digital imaging, to create a comprehensive understanding of the individual's dental structure. We then developed a customized treatment plan outlining the necessary corrections based on the assessment. This plan is a roadmap for the entire orthodontic journey, ensuring that each step is purposeful and aligned with the patient's unique requirements.

Before placing metal braces, we may undertake preliminary steps such as dental cleaning and, if necessary, tooth extractions to create optimal conditions for the braces. This ensures that the braces can be affixed securely to the teeth. We meticulously place the metal brackets on each tooth at the designated appointment, carefully bonding them with a dental adhesive. The archwires are then threaded through the brackets and secured, creating the framework for the orthodontic correction.

Following the placement of metal braces, our orthodontic professionals schedule the patient for regular check-ins to monitor the treatment progress. Braces are adjusted as needed to maintain the controlled pressure required for teeth alignment. These adjustments ensure a predictable and effective orthodontic journey.

Once the desired alignment is achieved, the braces are removed. A set of retainers may be recommended to maintain the new alignment and prevent relapse.
