Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional braces, the most popular type of braces, are ideal for children, teens and adults!

We’re proud to offer high-quality, durable metal braces at 8 convenient locations in South Florida. Our experienced orthodontists can treat a variety of conditions, from simple to complex, including malocclusions (bite misalignments), crooked teeth, crowded teeth, and gapped teeth.  

Traditional braces use brackets and wires to treat not only cosmetic concerns, but to treat functional concerns and improve your quality of life too!

What are braces made out of?

We provide high-quality teeth braces made out of stainless steel material. They’re made out of a number of components, including carbon, aluminum, silicon, molybdenum, nickel, and chromium. Stainless steel braces are strong, won’t rust or corrode, and are safe to submerge in water (of course).

How do I know if I need braces?

If you notice any of the following signs or symptoms, this may indicate a need for braces. 


  • Difficulty speaking, chewing, or swallowing
  • Teeth don’t meet evenly when closing the mouth
  • Speech difficulties
  • Biting the cheek frequently
  • Persistently bad breath
  • Self-conscious about your teeth or smile
  • Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth
  • Issues with your bite (an overbite, underbite, crossbite or open bite)
  • A strong or recessed jawline
  • Clicking or popping in your jaw joints (TMJ)
  • Snoring or poor quality of sleep (sleep apnea)

Your Personalized Treatment Plan with Metal Braces

Throughout your braces treatment, every 6 to 8 weeks (depending on your personalized treatment plan), you’ll visit us to check-in on your progress and adjust your braces. During these appointments, we’ll ensure that you’re on the right track to your new smile! 

At your braces adjustment appointments, we may replace your archwire and adjust a bracket or two, and you’ll have the option to choose from a variety of colored rubber bands to replace your old rubber bands. You can get creative with your metal braces colors to express your style!

Metal Braces Cost

The cost of braces at Cooper Orthodontics is affordable! We offer affordable, flexible payment plans to help you cover the cost of treatment. Our treatment coordinator will work with you to design a payment plan that meets your needs.

The cost of your treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the length of your treatment, the severity of your pre-treatment condition, and the payment plan you choose.
