Traditional Braces

Traditional Braces

State of the Art Metal, Clear, & Ceramic Braces

At Zaytoun Orthodontics our doctors have more than 55 years of orthodontic and dental experience. With that has come the opportunity to test and evaluate a vast variety of braces. In fact, our doctors were part of the original research and development team for the first bonded braces ever designed. Today, braces have advanced well beyond the days of bands around every tooth.

The orthodontists at Zaytoun offer a range of treatment methods, including traditional braces. Many complex orthodontic conditions may require traditional braces. For example patients with a misaligned bite preparing for jaw surgery may need traditional metal braces to offer the greatest amount of control. Traditional braces may also be the best option for younger children who are likely to lose aligners.

Conditions We Treat With Traditional Braces:

  • Crowded Teeth
  • Protruding Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Openbite
  • Spaced Teeth
  • And more

Traditional braces require tightening to gradually move and straighten teeth. Most traditional braces use standard metal brackets that adhere to your teeth. Each bracket is connected by wire.  However, not all brackets are metal, there are bracket options made of clear plastic or ceramic. Ceramic brackets are designed to match the color of your tooth enamel.

Patients We Treat With Traditional Braces:

  • Kids
  • Young Adults & Adults

Our orthodontists view themselves as artists, and our innovative use of these technologies to straighten teeth differentiates us from other orthodontists in Raleigh and beyond.
