 PERMANENT METAL BRACES


Permanent metal braces are the most commonly used therapeutic tool in orthodontics. Its operation is based on moving teeth with the help of forces generated by the arch, which is held in the gaps of orthodontic brackets using rubber or steel ligatures.

During each visit, you can choose the colour of the ligatures according to preferences. The most neutral colour in the case of metal appliances is silver or white, however, patients in our clinic often go beyond uniform shades and create colourful forms tailored to the season, mood or clothing.

It should also be remembered that wearing the device is associated with an increased risk of tooth decay, so it is necessary to pay special attention to oral hygiene, including the use of a special toothbrush, dental impressions and dental floss to remove food residues accumulating around the device's locks. After removing the orthodontic appliance, in order to consolidate the achieved effect, it is necessary to wear the so-called retention apparatus.

Permanent metal orthodontic braces are recommended for adolescents and adults for permanent teeth. It allows to correct defects more serious than a mobile device.
