Metal Braces Long Beach, CA

There’s nothing quite like a straight, healthy smile to fill you with confidence! If your teeth aren’t as straight and attractive as you’d like, though, that can really put a damper on your mood. Visit Dentist of Long Beach today to begin the journey to achieve your new, straighter smile with braces.

What Are Traditional Metal Braces?

Traditional or metal braces use brackets that our orthodontist will carefully place on your teeth with non-toxic adhesive. Other components, such as archwires and elastic bands will be added to adjust and straighten your teeth throughout your treatment plan.

We use only the best components made of USA titanium for our braces and we fit them precisely for your teeth specifications. For additional personalized touches, you may choose to have brackets and elastics in a wide range of colors to match your personal taste.

What Are the Benefits of Traditional Metal Braces?

Metal braces in Long Beach offer our patients many positive benefits, including lower cost, easy care and personalization.

Are Metal Braces Durable?

Metal braces are one of the longest lasting, most durable orthodontic treatment options because they are made of strong titanium.

Do Metal Braces Work For Overcrowded Mouths And Gaps Alike?

Traditional braces are the fastest method of correction for misaligned teeth. They work with overcrowded mouths, gaps and other considerations, with the assistance of other treatment components.

How Long Do You Wear Metal Braces?

The length of time you need to wear traditional braces will vary from person to person, depending on personal oral care needs. If you have widely spaced teeth, for example, the time required for correction will be different from that of someone who has an overbite or crowded mouth.

Generally speaking, however, most patients wear traditional braces between one and two years for correcting the most common teeth misalignment concerns.

What Do Traditional Braces Cost?

Traditional braces are often chosen because they generally are the least expensive form of correction available to orthodontic patients. The cost will, however, vary from person to person, depending on

  • Age
  • Type of correction needed
  • Other treatments required in conjunction with braces
  • Personalized factors

Metal braces usually will cost a few thousand dollars or more in most cases, but many insurance companies cover some portion of these costs. At Dentist of Long Beach, we will happily work with you and your insurance company to create the right payment plan for your treatment.

What Does The Process For Having Traditional Metal Braces Placed Look Like?

When you’re ready to come in for your orthodontic consultation here at Dentist of Long Beach, we’ll give you an examination, take x-rays and thoroughly discuss your potential treatment plans and payment options. For these plans, we’ll take into consideration a number of things including your insurance coverage, your particular orthodontic needs and other details that help us make the treatment affordable.

Next, you’ll come in for your braces placement appointment. This appointment will take longer than those in the future because of the installation process. During this installation you’ll:

  1. Have a teeth cleaning
  2. Have the surface of your teeth prepared for the braces
  3. Have brackets placed and cemented onto your teeth with non-toxic adhesive
  4. Have wires and elastics placed

After your placement appointment, we’ll see you again for periodic adjustments and checkups as well as any additional care you may need along the way.
