A tailored, digitally designed orthodontic treatment with metallic braces. Satisfaction guaranteed.
What are metallic braces?
Orthodontics are a medical and cosmetic treatment made to correct and prevent problems in the position of teeth, in order to ensure a balanced bite and avoid secondary problems.
Metallic braces, or brackets, are small plates adhered to the teeth, and bonded with a flexible metallic wire to make the adjustments needed to move the teeth to their ideal position.
The treatment’s duration is between 18 and 24 months, during which regular visits to the dentist are required to keep track of its evolution.
Metallic braces are the most affordable orthodontics treatment, as its sole objective is focused on correcting the position of the teeth and their right occlusion.
Benefits of using metallic braces
- Absolute precision, thanks to digital design technology
- It’s cheaper than cosmetic orthodontics
- Practical and easy to care for
- 100% effectiveness. In all cases.
The visible results of an orthodontic treatment are indisputable. However, its goal goes beyond, and is not merely cosmetic. On the contrary, it aims at ordering and optimizing the maxillofacial structure to prevent subsequent problems affecting people’s life quality, such as migraine, neck or back pain.
A bad bite can lead to an uneven wear and tear of the teeth, or to malocclusion preventing the teeth from performing their function correctly. That’s speaking, biting and chewing. At the same time, severe cases may have long-term digestive or respiratory effects. This is the main reason why orthodontics treatments are mostly made during teenagerhood, before the permanent teeth settle into their final position.
Orthodontic treatments made with metallic braces are the most frequent ones due to their lower cost, and are the most recommended when discretion is not necessary, for example, for professional reasons.

Orthodontic treatments are a delicate choice where important things must be considered: they take time, and are slightly invasive for the space they take on the teeth. Once defined the patient’s needs and the length of the treatment, the type of brace and its material affect its final price.
Metallic braces are suitable for everybody, as long as they have permanent teeth.
Its objective is correcting problems of space or position by making regular adjustments in a progressive and virtually imperceptible way.
Their only disadvantages are the small sores or injuries that may appear due to the brackets friction, and minor discomfort in some gestures, due to the lack of habit. Adjustment sessions may also cause a certain amount of pain for some days, yet it disappears quickly.
Metallic braces also require thorough hygiene to avoid food remains staying between the teeth or behind the device arcs. Our Orthodontics specialist will provide all the necessary information to keep proper oral health during the treatment. We recommend metallic braces to people whose profession does not depend on their image and who don’t need to invest in cosmetic treatments such as invisible alignment or clear braces.
