Traditional braces

If you’re thinking of getting braces, Scunthorpe Orthodontics is the place for you. One of our most successful and cost-effective treatment options that is suitable for patients of all ages, is traditional braces. 

What are traditional braces?

If you’ve been told you need braces or are considering orthodontic treatment, the first image that may come to mind is metal train tracks on your teeth. These are traditional metal braces. However, you can forget the train track look; this appliance has come a long way and today traditional braces are more comfortable and effective than ever before.

Traditional braces are comprised of three key components: small metal brackets that are bonded to the front of your teeth, thin metal archwires that connect these brackets, and elastic bands which are used to apply the pressure to your teeth that is needed to guide your teeth into position.

Who are traditional braces for?

The short answer is everyone. Traditional braces are effective in treating major and minor orthodontic problems. At Scunthorpe Orthodontics we treat patients of all ages with traditional braces. Whether traditional braces are right for you is dependent on your orthodontic needs and your budget, as traditional braces are one of the cheaper orthodontic appliances.

Dr Keith Jackson BDS, FDS, RCS

GDC Number: 60123

Keith Jackson left his native Northern Ireland in 1980 to commence his study of Dentistry at Newcastle University, completing his degree in 1985, taking with him as well very happy memories of his time in the North East.

He decided to continue his dental education, developing more advanced skills - initially at The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, followed by Doncaster Royal Infirmary and finally The Birmingham Dental Hospital. After this four-year period of post-graduate study, he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Keith began his practice career as an associate at The Riversdale Dental Practice in Gainsborough and had the opportunity two years later to buy the practice from the existing owner – who was heading back to the Emerald isle.

Benefits of traditional braces

  • Comfortable: once upon a time wearing traditional braces could be an uncomfortable experience, but developments in orthodontic technology have meant that traditional braces are now smaller and more comfortable to wear.
  • Affordable: traditional braces are one of the most affordable orthodontic treatment options available. And they’re made even more affordable with the payment plans we have available here at Scunthorpe Orthodontics.
