Traditional metal braces are the most common and frequently used braces for orthodontic treatment. These braces consist of a small metal bracket that is glued to each tooth and connected together with a wire. The wires are held into place by small rubber bands that come in a variety of colors. The fun colors allow each patient to customize their braces for their liking at every appointment. Every time you come in for a regular visit, Dr. McClaran will make adjustments to your braces to move your teeth into their proper position. Metal braces are a fun way to straighten teeth for both children and teenagers alike.
