Traditional Band and Brackets at Smile Solutions
The importance of Traditional Band and Brackets
The traditional wires and brackets are what everyone pictures when they think of braces, and there’s a reason we still use them: they are effective. Wire braces consist of metal brackets that are cemented to each tooth and archwires that run across them. The archwires come in different sizes and stiffness levels depending on how Dr. Clothier wants the patient’s teeth to move between appointments, and they are held in place by colorful elastic ligatures.
Why? Some cases are not appropriate for Clear Correct.
Keep in mind that most patients with clear aligners have mild to moderate teeth issues, and more severe problems may require braces. Some patients who have small teeth or teeth that come to a point may not be suited for ClearCorrect, as the trays need to be able to securely move teeth.
