Around for over a hundred years, braces are the gold standard for moving teeth. Do you know why?
Over a 100 years old:
why do we still use braces?
Braces were the first appliance invented to move teeth. They are made of medical-grade stainless steel that is resistant to wear and corrosion. Initially wraping around the whole tooth, they have become much smaller and less visible. Metal braces remain the most common because they are highly effective at correcting almost all types of malocclusions.
