Metal Braces

Traditional orthodontic care can be used to correct many cosmetic and oral health-related concerns, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, severe gaps, and even jaw problems. After their treatment, many patients find that they can eat, speak, and clean their teeth with more confidence than ever before. Better yet, metal braces have evolved over the years, become smaller, sleeker, and much more comfortable for the patient.

Traditional braces consist of several metal brackets and a wire that connects them. When wearing them, patients will need to attend regular appointments at our Loudoun County practice so that our team can provide adjusting; this creates the pressure that slowly moves your teeth into their ideal position. In most cases, elastics (rubber bands) are worn as well, and patients can even choose specific colors for a fun, unique look.

Dr. Mayo offers several kinds of metal braces, as well as more aesthetic-minded options that will help you better maintain your natural appearance throughout your treatment. Whether you’re the parent of a child with developmental needs or you’re an older patient who simply wants to make a change, orthodontic treatment is for everyone. We look forward to meeting you!
