About Traditional Metal Braces By Dayville, CT’s Favorite Orthodontist

Sharing is caring!

BThe fascination and need to straighten teeth stems from ancient times. In ancient Egypt, people used a pressure method to straighten the teeth of their deceased. Though it didn’t gain popularity for the living until the 1900s, it is safe to say that humanity has always been fascinated with having beautiful teeth. Technological advances from the 1970s to now have ensured that braces are more comfortable, effective, and aesthetically pleasing than they’ve ever been before. This is a fantastic time to get braces as the experience can be truly rewarding and pleasant.


How Metal Braces Work


Most braces work by utilizing pressure over time to gradually shift the teeth into alignment. When receiving traditional metal braces, your CT orthodontist attaches a bracket to each tooth in a very specific spot so that, once the process is complete, the archwire will appear straight. The archwire is attached to the brackets using tiny rubber bands called ligatures. You can choose whatever colors you want, which makes it fun for holidays or special events.


Things To Know About Metal Braces


With traditional metal braces, there are some helpful tips that you may want to know. Keep in mind that each patient is different, so even though something is listed below, YOU may never experience it!


  • After an adjustment, you may experience some soreness or aching in the mouth. However, this has been greatly diminished over the years because of technological advancements.
  • Your CT orthodontist will advise against eating certain foods as they can get caught in your braces or cause one of the brackets to come off, if the food is hard enough. Though a bracket coming off is extremely rare, it’s still best to follow your orthodontist’s advice.
  • When brackets irritate your gums, there’s a possibility of a sore forming. Your CT orthodontist may give you orthodontic wax to put over the bracket that’s bothering you.
  • One of the most important things to remember with braces is to brush your teeth often because there are a lot more little crevices for bacteria and food to get into. This bacteria could begin the process of decalcification, which is the beginning of a cavity. It’s important to follow your CT orthodontist’s instructions when it comes to brushing your teeth.

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
