The design is made of medical stainless steel with the use of nickel-titanium alloys. The construction of metal braces is rather complicated, although at first glance it seems very simple. The orthodontic arc is made of flexible and elastic steel. It is the construction that moves the teeth in the right direction.

Types of metal braces.

Like other types of braces, iron ones are divided into vestibular (external) and lingual (those that are installed on the inside of the teeth).

Lingual brackets are made of metal or alloys of various metals. To make them aesthetic is simply meaningless, because they are inside the jaw and invisible to others. Classic vestibular metal braces are divided into:

  • Self-adhesive metal braces (non-ligaturious) - the arc is fixed with the help of a lock;
  • Ligaturious metallic braces - rubbers, ligatures, which hold the arc into the braces slot are sued here.
