Still the most common of all orthodontic treatment types. Even though there are increasingly more and more orthodontic treatment options becoming available, traditional metal braces remain the most common form of treatment.
Braces have changed. Orthodontic advances have meant that braces a more comfortable and less noticeable that ever before.
A popular choice for teenagers. Braces have always been a great choice for teenagers. At an age when it's common to be undergoing orthodontic treatment, teenagers are less likely to worry about the appearance of metal braces. That doesn't mean they're just for teens though! Sometimes adults and children are treated using metal braces. Keep in mind, the ideal age for a child to first see an orthodontist is 7, but they won't necessarily be treated then, it just give the orthodontist a good change to monitor their growth and changed in their teeth and perhaps treat them as older children or teenagers.
The most affordable treatment option. Braces still remain the most affordable form of orthodontic treatment, which could be having an impact on why they are such a popular choice amongst orthodontic patients.
