At Surrideo Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile they feel proud of in any situation. That's why Dr. Warren Cohen and our team of orthodontic specialists work hard to design a personalized treatment plan to suit each patient's unique orthodontic needs and lifestyle. We're proud to provide a wide variety of orthodontic treatments at our office, and advances in orthodontic technology now let us offer treatment alternatives such as Invisalign - but without a doubt, the most popular form of treatment is still traditional metal braces.


Time-Tested Technology


Metal braces are what most people think of when they hear the word "braces," and there's good reason for that. Metal braces have been around since the dawn of orthodontics, and they've proven to be one of the most reliable, effective, and cost-efficient ways to straighten teeth. Made from stainless steel, metal braces are composed of brackets cemented to the front of teeth with a thin, springy metal archwire running through them. The archwire applies a gentle pressure to the brackets, exerting a small force to gradually guide the teeth to new positions.


Benefits of Metal Braces


So why would one choose metal braces instead of a newer treatment like Invisalign? As it turns out, there are a few reasons that metal braces are still our most popular treatment:


Reliable: Metal braces have been around for more than 200 years, and over time, advances in the technology have made them one of the most dependable ways to straighten teeth.

Powerful: While Invisalign and other alternative treatments can treat most orthodontic conditions, there's almost nothing that braces can't handle, making them one of the most powerful treatments in orthodontics.

Aesthetics & Comfort: Metal braces used to be clunky and uncomfortable, but modern braces are thinner, more comfortable, and more aesthetically appealing than ever.

Cost-Effective: Metal braces are one of the most cost-effective ways to straighten teeth, making a beautiful smile affordable for any budget.
