Unveiling the Benefits of Metal Braces

Today's metal braces are far ahead of their predecessors. We use smaller, sleeker brackets and wires tailored to your specific dental needs. Our treatment method results in a faster, more effective, and more comfortable experience for you.

Accelerated Treatment Process

Fixed in place, metal braces tirelessly reshape your smile. As a bonus, they often reduce overall treatment time compared to removable options.

Metal braces work continuously, maintaining your efficient progress toward your perfect smile. They’re also super reliable, exerting consistent pressure for optimal alignment and quicker results.

Enhanced Comfort

Advances in orthodontic materials mean Scott Orthodontics' braces are far more comfortable than older models. We design modern braces to minimize irritation throughout your treatment. Contemporary brackets and wires fit better.

We intend for your journey to your new smile as smooth and pain-free as possible.

Personalized Style

Step into your individuality with various band colors, from vibrant hues to more subdued tones, allowing you to reflect your personal style or spirit. Metal braces at Scott Orthodontics now offer a fun way to make your orthodontic experience uniquely yours with customizable options.
