Conventional braces are made of stainless steel and easily attach to the check side of the tooth. Metal braces are sleek, compact and have a low profile that limits irritation to the lips and surrounding cheeks.
Wires of different dimensions and materials are attached to the braces with ties during the course of treatment. The ties that are used to attach the wire come in a variety of colors ranging from silver to lime green. These ties are changed every appointment.
