Metal braces of the past were known for being clunky, awkward, and uncomfortable to wear. Fortunately, today’s conventional braces are far sleeker and cause less irritation to the gums and inside of the mouth. After the patients’ custom treatment plan is created, metal or ceramic brackets are glued to each tooth using a strong but safe dental adhesive. Dr. Nelson developed and perfected a process called Precision Bracket Placement, (PBP), where he uses a model of the teeth to decide the most precise and effective placement for brackets to move teeth. Brackets are then placed on the teeth using the model as a guide and initial tooth movement is much more exact and shortens treatment time.

Modern Conventional BracesTrinity Orthodontics offers three excellent choices for patients who want to utilize conventional braces to straighten their smiles.
- Metal Braces use metal brackets, and patients can choose what color elastics they would like to surround each bracket, which are changed out during in-person appointments.
- Ceramic Braces use ceramic brackets, which are less noticeable than metal brackets. Ceramic braces are just as effective as metal braces, but they are more discreet.
