Traditional Braces

What are traditional braces?

Traditional braces are either metal or ceramic braces affixed to the outside of your teeth. Traditional braces have been the historical orthodontic treatment to help realign crooked teeth or treat other orthodontic dental concerns, but still require expertly trained Orthodontists to recommend the right course of treatment to achieve the maximum results, with the minimum inconvenience.

Braces for any age

Ceramic braces are less conspicuous than metal alternatives as they blend with the colour pigmentation of teeth. While ceramic braces are frequently preferred by adult patients with metal braces often used for teenage customers, ceramic or metal braces can be applied to any patient. Our highly-trained Orthodontists are experts in the administration of all forms of traditional brace, recommending only the best possible treatment for you and your dental concern.

Typically traditional metal braces work faster than invisalign trays to realign crooked teeth and close gaps. In a short period of time, patients will be able to see vast improvements.

For a standard 18 month treatment, traditional braces cost up to $7,500-$8,000 in Sydney, Australia. Price of treatment can increase depending on the complexity of your dental issues.

Traditional metal braces, ceramic braces and invisalign are all effective orthodontic treatment options to fix teeth misalignment, and have their own benefits. The braces that work best for you depend on your unique dental issue requirements. Traditional braces are crafted from medical-grade stainless steel with an arched wire attached to brackets. Traditional braces are the quickest option to realign significantly crooked teeth and jaw problems.

Ceramic braces work similarly to traditional metal braces, but use coloured ceramic brackets to blend with the natural colour of the teeth. As a result they are more visually appealing.

Lingual braces are designed to fit in the contour of the inside of each tooth. They are just as effective as standard outside braces, however they take longer to fit as each bracket needs to be custom made, and are more difficult to clean.

Invisalign one of the newest orthodontic treatments available. These series of custom plastic trays slowly move the teeth into a preferred position, and can be removed for cleaning and eating.

Yes, traditional braces are slightly more affordable than invisalign. Compared to traditional braces, invisalign is costlier since the aligner trays have to be replaced every two weeks. With Invisalign, you are required to change your tray every two weeks and are a fully custom option. As a result, this can raise the price of your overall treatment.
