How Do Traditional Braces Work?

Metal braces have been the go-to solution to correct alignment and malocclusion issues for over 100 years because they are effective and affordable. They can treat even the most complex cases using a system of brackets and wires to gradually move the teeth into their ideal positions.

Traditionally, silver brackets are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth; however, now they can come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to make them less noticeable. Each bracket has “wings,” which are special edges that allow elastic bands to be secured around them to hold the wire in place. The wire is adjusted every few weeks to move your teeth. Bands are placed on the back 4 teeth to give the wire extra support for the correct tooth movement.

Why are Braces an Investment?

Orthodontic issues cause more complications than just aesthetic concerns. Misaligned teeth increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease because it is harder to remove harmful plaque and bacteria. You also have a higher risk of dental emergencies, uneven wear on your enamel, and disorders of the temporomandibular joint.

You can prevent these complications by correcting your alignment concerns, so orthodontics in Garland is actually an investment in your oral health. You will lower your long-term dental expenses while also enjoying a confident smile.

Benefits of Traditional Braces

How Much Do Braces Cost?

There is no easy answer as to how much you can expect to pay because the cost is determined by a patient-by-patient basis. After an initial consultation, your dentist in Garland provides you with a customized estimate. There are several factors that influence the amount you will pay, such as the complexity of your case and if you need any additional treatments.

We take the time to carefully explain your orthodontic plan and the costs associated with it. We work to find the solution you need to keep your new smile affordable, such as working with your insurance company. We file the necessary claims and paperwork with them to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options to cover any remaining balance, like third-party financing with CareCredit.
