Metal Braces Milton, GA

Metal Braces

For many decades, metal braces have been straightening teeth and correcting bite issues in millions of mouths. Although there are new options in braces, including clear or invisible braces, metal braces are considered the traditional, most reliable and time-tested option. While clear braces have limitations on correcting more severe misalignment issues, metal braces can be used to treat most orthodontic conditions. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer metal or traditional braces for our patients, as well as other orthodontic treatments options.

What are Traditional Braces?

While traditional or metal braces have been used for many years, they have evolved with technology. The metal braces used today use small metal brackets that are glued to the front of the teeth instead of the old-fashioned bands that used to wrap around the entire tooth. The small brackets are attached to each other with small elastic ligatures or wires, depending on the patient. Since teens are often the age group that receives braces, there are colorful ligature and ornate bracket options that can make the braces more attractive.

Traditional braces tend to be more affordable than some of the other brace options, making them the right choice for many families. If you or your child may need braces, you need an orthodontist that can help you find the right orthodontic treatment to correct your smile and fit your budget. Our experienced orthodontist, Dr. Patel, will perform a thorough examination to determine what options are available to straighten and align the teeth, including traditional or metal braces. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
