Traditional Orthodontics
in New Westminster

Traditional orthodontics are commonly used to fix severe tooth alignment issues in both children and adults. This treatment uses metal braces, which consist of stainless steel wires, brackets, and elastics to gently pull your teeth into place.

How Do Metal Braces Work?

Your dentist will use a special glue to bond each bracket to each tooth. They will then attach a thin metal wire called an archwire to the bracket and tighten it to shift your teeth into their desired position.

Caring For Your Metal Braces

Metal braces are fragile, so it’s best to be careful what you eat and avoid certain foods. Food such as gum and chewy candy can get stuck in your braces, leading to decay and discolouration. Also, avoid hard and crunchy foods that can damage the wires, as they may need to be repaired or replaced by your dentist.
