About the process
If misaligned teeth are affecting your bite or compromising your confidence in your appearance, traditional orthodontics, commonly known as braces, are an affordable, effective solution for your crooked smile. Metal braces move your teeth into proper alignment using a bracket-and-wire system that exerts gentle pressure on your teeth. Compared to other types of orthodontics, traditional braces are affordable and predictably effective. Whether you are a Child, teen or adult, we can help get you that perfect smile.
What is Metal Braces Procedure
To begin your treatment, your orthodontist will bond a metal bracket to each of your teeth. These brackets are cemented in place and serve as anchors that allow your teeth to be gently moved into alignment. Once your brackets are secured, the dentist will thread a long, thin metal wire across each bracket and secure it in place using small rubber bands. This arch wire exerts continual force on each secured bracket. Every few weeks, the dentist will switch out your arch wire with a new one that is shaped slightly differently, bringing you one step closer to your final goal. Once your teeth have been moved into their final desired alignment the brackets will be removed. You will be provided with a removable or permanent retainer to help hold your teeth in their new positions.
Metal braces work the best because they are made from the strongest materials.
- Traditional braces tend to be the most affordable orthodontic option available.
- Kids and teens can customize the elastic bands on their braces in a variety of colourful hues to reflect their unique personalities.
Comprised of high-grade stainless steel, the metal braces offered at Allure MedSpa are lighter, smaller and more powerful than past versions, allowing them to straighten teeth as efficiently and comfortably as possible.

3 stages of procedure
During your consultation, your dentist will speak to you about your lifestyle and your treatment goals. You will also discuss any budgetary constraints. Although traditional braces are the most noticeable type of orthodontic treatment, they are also the most affordable
The aim of the orthodontist is to make the whole experience of wearing braces as comfortable as possible. The initial placement of your metal braces is completely pain-free. After that, your teeth and jaw may feel slightly sore for about a week due to the gradual movement of your teeth. After each follow-up appointment to tighten your braces, you may also experience some discomfort for a few days, though it will be very easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications and by adopting a temporary soft food diet.
We will provide you with a bevy of options customized to you or your child’s particular goals and needs. Orthodontist treatments have to be customised basis individual conditions and have to be tailor made for every patient for best results.
Possible Consequences / Precautions
The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and allow you to choose from several options.
Should you find a wire has been dislodged or a rubber band has broken, contact your dentist as soon as possible. If any part of the metal on the braces have come loose, bring the pieces with you. Metal braces are usually very strong but sports activities and eating can sometimes cause pieces to come loose.
AMS recommendation for best results
Eating and drinking will have a few restrictions to ensure your teeth aren’t damaged during your treatment. There are certain foods to avoid that can potentially pull the braces out of place. Sticky foods can become stuck under the metal causing cavities.
Generally, the foods you will be asked to temporarily give up sticky, hard to chew or require force to chew. Some examples are:
- Carbonated beverages
- Chewing gum, licorice
- Popcorn, ice, chips
- Caramels, nuts,
- Apples, carrots, corn on the cob
By avoiding these foods, you will eliminate potential complications which can be time consuming and can even interfere with your orthodontic program.
Brush your teeth after each meal, including snacks. Floss once a day using special floss designed for those wearing braces. It is really important to spend the time to keep your teeth and gums healthy during treatment.
Improvements are progressive and final results take upto a few months.
Treatment times are low, with typical cases taking around 6-12 months but this does vary depending on the degree of complexity and amount of crowding. A more accurate estimation of treatment length is provided at the consultation.
No of sessions
The frequency of visits depends on the specific needs of each case and the progression of the corrections. Most of the patients with braces are seen every 6 to 10+ weeks. However, if a particular situation justifies closer monitoring, visits are scheduled accordingly.
