Traditional braces are probably one of the most popular orthodontic appliances available for teens. They can fix crooked teeth, protruding teeth, crossbites, underbites, overbites, gaps, crowding, and other problems. Pros of traditional braces are having the option to get color ties around them. The appliances are fixed on the teeth so limited to no compliance is involved. Disadvantage of fixed metal braces is challenges associated with cleaning them and some food restriction to prevent breakage. Most of our patients at Porth quickly learn how to take care of their braces.
