The Traditional Choice

Live Life with A Smile You Love!
Achieve the smile of your dreams with our strong and effective traditional metal braces.


Healthy, straight teeth are the fundamental components of a beautiful, confident smile. If common orthodontic problems like crowding or crooked teeth are keeping you from enjoying your smile to the fullest, our team wants to help. With traditional metal braces at Summit Family Orthodontics, you can experience the innumerable benefits of properly aligned teeth and a luminous, attractive smile.


The technology behind metal braces has advanced considerably over the past decade, making it possible for children, adolescents, and adults to achieve perfectly aligned teeth and improved oral health more quickly and more comfortably than ever before. Carefully crafted using state-of-the-art titanium or stainless steel, braces gradually shift the teeth into their proper positions over time. There are three primary components of traditional metal braces.

  • Brackets – Brackets are tiny pieces made of metal that are affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth with a special non-damaging adhesive.
  • Archwire – This thin wire is attached to the brackets and will serve as the source of gentle but effective pressure as the teeth are moved into their desired positions.
  • Ligature elastics (rubber bands) – These bands are used to hold the archwire to the metal brackets. They are available in a wide array of colors, and many patients choose to personalize their look by selecting their favorite hues.

Metal braces are the single most effective solution in the correction of multiple orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, openbites, missing incisors, gaps between teeth, crowding, and TMJ issues associated with malocclusion.


Maintaining a good home hygiene routine is key when wearing braces, as is keeping to a regular schedule of professional cleanings and checkups at our office. If you’d like to learn more about metal braces or if you’re ready to schedule a visit with the Summit Family Orthodontics team, please contact us today.
