Since the prolific rise in popularity of clear, discreet teeth straightening methods, you may be surprised to learn that metal braces still serve an important role in orthodontic treatments.

These new ‘invisible’ methods of teeth straightening have become increasingly popular, especially amongst adult patients but in some cases the costs are prohibitive. In other cases of more complex treatment plans the best tools for the job are still those that have served us well for decades.
