Traditional Braces

Metal braces are the traditional type of braces used to correct teeth alignment. They consist of metal brackets bonded to the teeth and a metal wire threaded through the brackets. Over time, the wire is tightened to move the teeth into the desired position.

Our Traditional Braces Treatment Process


Initial Consultation Appointment

The initial consultation with the orthodontist is essential in the braces process. During this appointment, the orthodontist will look at your teeth and discuss your treatment options.


Attaching the Braces

The metal brackets are bonded to the tooth surfaces with a special dental adhesive, and then the metal wire is attached to the brackets with small rubber bands or ligatures.



It is necessary to have periodic adjustments to keep the braces in place and continue the orthodontic treatment.


Receive your Retainers

A retainer will keep your teeth in their new position and help to prevent them from becoming crooked again.

Traditional Braces FAQs

Despite the fact that braces typically cost $5,000 to $6,000, the price might vary widely.

The reason for this is that orthodontic treatment is highly customized for each patient and their orthodontist. Age, insurance, and braces type all have an impact on your costs.

Typically, a full set of braces takes 18-24 months to complete.

Dr. Kumra is outstanding and his staff is wonderful. I went in for braces. Dr Kumra was very knowledgeable and detailed when explaining the process of getting braces. From the beginning Dr. Kumra and his staff were very professional. They were very flexible with appointments. When I came in my for an appointment at 8:30am, I was seen at 8:30 am. No waiting around an additional 10-15 mins. I was in in out and now i have a perfect set of braces!

Dr. Kumra and his entire staff are lovely human beings who make you feel welcome and comfortable every time you visit. It was a pleasure to show up to appointments…which is an unusual thing to say about any visit to a doctor’s office! I was very happy with my Invisalign treatment. If you are looking for an orthodontist, look no further! Dr. Kumra is the best around.
