Metal Braces in Atlanta and Marietta, GATraditional metal braces typically come to mind when thinking of braces. Compared to metal braces in the past, modern metal braces are smaller and flatter with less bulk and more comfort. Wright Orthodontics routinely uses metal braces for many of its Atlanta and Marietta, GA, patients.

How Do Metal Braces Straighten Your Teeth?

The main parts of metal braces, brackets and wires, are made primarily of high-quality and durable stainless steel or another metal alloy. Brackets are bonded onto the front of your teeth along with a very thin metal wire (arch wire) that connects each bracket and applies pressure on your teeth to guide them into alignment. Ligature elastics hold the arch wires to the brackets and come in a variety of colors to add a little originality to your braces. You get new rubber bands at each appointment so you can change colors every time if you want.

During each appointment, the wires are tightened ever so slightly to help your teeth shift a little more toward their proper position. Sometimes your teeth may feel like they are loose when in fact they are just moving. It is a temporary feeling and goes away quickly.
