Traditional braces are the tried and reliable way of correcting alignment and straightening teeth, and were the first common orthodontic tools produced for this reason. They are built of materials such as high-quality stainless steel or titanium alloys and are meant to be sturdy and corrosion-resistant. They employ a metallic arch wire, brackets, and orthodontic ligatures, or bands, to deliver the necessary pressure to correct even the most severe cases of crowded, misaligned, or crooked teeth.

The cost of conventional braces therapy will vary depending on the intricacy of the patient’s situation and where you will receive the treatment. The more complicated the issue, the more expensive the therapy will be.
