27 Services ( View All )

Overview

With modern technology and countless orthodontic advances, traditional metal braces are more comfortable and affordable than ever before. As a premier dental practice, we offer several orthodontic treatments to cater to the vast cosmetic needs and desires of our Cocoa, FL patients. Traditional braces are typically the most effective form of treatment for more complex dental issues and since they are fixed devices, patients wouldn't have to worry about compliance like that of clear aligners. Adults and teenagers can also customize their look and show off their unique personality with colored brackets and bands. If you or your child is in need of metal braces, call Advanced Dental Care in Cocoa, FL to set up a consultation with seasoned dentist Dr. Dieter Burr. 

Ideal Candidates

Traditional metal braces are a great choice for both adults and children of all ages. Our conventional braces are made of high-grade stainless steel archwires and brackets that are strategically placed to create that stunning smile you desire. They are an ideal choice for patients with jaw alignment issues, crowded or gapped teeth, asymmetrical bites, and severely crooked teeth. We also use top-quality elastics that don't easily break and are simple to apply. 

What to Expect

After your initial exam, a personalized treatment plan will be developed for your specific case. On the day of your appointment, your teeth will be properly prepped and cleaned prior to placing your metal braces. Once we have applied the bonding agent to your teeth, your metal brackets will be placed followed by your archwires. You will then be able to choose your desired elastic band color(s). The tiny bands ensure the security of the archwires to the metal brackets. Typically, the application process moves fairly quickly and patients often experience no pain. However, you can also expect to return to our office once a month for adjustments and progress exams. 

Follow-Up

Metal braces can make cleaning and flossing your teeth more challenging. However, proper oral hygiene is essential to your orthodontic treatment. Before you leave our office after your braces are placed, Dr. Burr will educate you on how to best clean your teeth and provide you with helpful tips. As a general rule, we recommend that you brush and floss your teeth after every meal. Keeping all your orthodontic appointments and regular dental cleanings will also help to ensure optimal results. Typically, most patients wear braces for 1 – 2 years, but your treatment time will ultimately depend on the severity of your case. 

Insurance Coverage

Typically, most dental insurance policies offer some coverage for traditional metal braces. However, our patient coordinators will contact your provider to determine your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. We also offer several payment plans to help ease the burden for those who are paying without insurance. During your initial consultation, we will be happy to provide you with this information to best prepare for moving forward.
