Silver Braces for Young Adults

Metallic braces are the traditional way of correcting orthodontic problems. They use constant, gentle pressure, which, over time, move teeth into their proper position. Your braces are at work every moment of your orthodontic treatment.

The two main components of your braces are the brackets that are placed on your teeth and the main archwire that connects them. Always on the cutting edge of technology, Valerian Orthodontics also offers self- ligating brackets. This type of bracket comes with its own “gate” or sliding door built into its design, and that gate holds the wire inside, without the need of colors. Research shows that using this system decreases treatment time and increases patient comfort during treatment.

Self-ligating brackets are also easier to keep clean and require fewer adjustment appointments. We are proud to offer Damon® and Damon Clear ® self-ligating brackets to our patients.
