Tried & True

In some cases, advanced metal braces in Austin, TX, are the best option for aligning your smile and improving your dental health.

At Austin Orthodontics, our braces are smaller, and we utilize an advanced, self-ligating brace with a locking-door mechanism to hold the wire in place with less friction and more efficient tooth movement.

Get the Best Smile With Advanced Metal Braces

While some of the experiences may be similar, the materials are now more robust and more resilient to standard wear and tear, and the wires are space-age technology that moves the teeth with a continuous light force.

There is a reason that metal braces are still around. This method for aligning your smile and bite is still incredibly effective!

When discreet treatment isn’t a necessity, or when you don’t want the responsibility of changing your aligners, advanced metal braces from Dr. Seth Briggs give you a highly-reliable and sometimes preferable treatment option for straightening teeth.

Faster Treatment & Fewer Office Visits

Our self-ligating braces use advanced technology that straightens your teeth faster with fewer adjustment appointments. The difference is the ability to fully activate the wires at each visit — the wires are what actually moves the tooth.

Self-ligating brackets keep the wire fully engaged without the high friction elastic ties, this allows the wire to work at its full potential without frequent activation visits.

Traditional braces treatment lasts 30 months on average with adjustments every 4 weeks, with advanced self-ligating braces, you can expect a 35% faster treatment time than traditional metal braces, with less frequent visits (every 8–10 weeks)!

Mix & Match Colors with Metal Braces

Colored bands can be one of the most fun things about having braces!

Whether you want to wear your favorite color, show school pride, or represent your favorite sports team, you will get a fun, new look every time you get an adjustment!

Metal Braces Are Sturdy & Effective

Metal braces today are made from stronger materials and use state of the art adhesive bonding to attach to the teeth instead of metal bands used a decade ago.

The end result is fewer broken brackets that might otherwise extend the length of your treatment.
