At Dressler Orthodontics, we offer metal braces, Fastbraces®, and ceramic braces. Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive. With metal braces, a series of metal brackets and wires are attached to each tooth in a patient’s mouth. The strength of that wire is what gently pulls the teeth into the desired position over time.
