The Metal Braces Experience:

What to Expect

Embarking on your journey to a radiant smile with metal braces involves several key steps:

  1. Consultation: Your orthodontic journey begins with a thorough consultation at Keyser Orthodontics. Dr. Keyser assesses your unique dental needs, discusses treatment options, and establishes a personalized plan.
  2. Brace Placement: Once you opt for metal braces, the braces will be affixed to each tooth using a special adhesive. A metal wire is then threaded through the brackets, creating the framework for tooth movement.
  3. Adjustments: Regular visits to Keyser Orthodontics are scheduled for adjustments, where the archwire is tightened or replaced to gradually guide teeth into their desired positions.
  4. Personalization: Choose from an array of colored bands to personalize your braces. This customization adds a touch of individuality to your orthodontic experience.
  5. Retention: At the end of your orthodontic treatment journey, Dr. Keyser will ensure that you have a retainer to maintain the beauty and functionality of your new smile. 

Maintaining Oral Health With Metal Braces

Caring for your oral health while wearing metal braces is essential for achieving the best results. Here are some tips:

  1. Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing become even more crucial with metal braces. Use specialized tools like interdental brushes and floss threaders to navigate between wires and brackets.
  2. Dietary Considerations: While metal braces are strong and effective, certain foods can pose challenges. Avoid sticky or hard foods that may damage the braces, and cut up hard fruits and vegetables to prevent damage. Feel to free to ask our team if you have any specific questions or concerns about safe foods for braces. 
  3. Regular Check-ups: Attend scheduled appointments at Keyser Orthodontics for adjustments and check-ups to ensure your treatment progresses smoothly.
