Embrace a confident new smile with classic metal braces

Traditional metal braces are a reliable and cost-effective way to align teeth and develop a better bite. Dr. Tarek El-Bialy is a renowned orthodontist and an expert at producing smile-enhancing results through metal braces.

Every smile tells a story

Actual patients of Dr. Tarek El-Bialy

This is an example of an open bite (front teeth do not touch), with a narrow palate (upper arch is narrow which leads to less room for the teeth to erupt properly), and cross bite (upper teeth are positioned behind the lower teeth). Growing up, this patient could not breath well through their nose, and developed a mouth breathing habit. This contributed to and was exacerbated by the under-development of the palatal vault (narrow palate). Thankfully, with modern orthodontic techniques, Dr. Tarek painlessly and gradually expanded the patient’s palate and straightened all of the patient’s teeth into ideeal alignment. Now, the patient looks and feels great!

This younger adult patient had a misshapen upper arch, which was narrow and lead to dental crowding. Dr. Tarek was able to use modern orthodontic techniques to correct the palatal form and straighten/align all the teeth beautifully.

This 60 year old patient thought she would be too old for orthodontic treatment. This is a challenging case, due to the ‘V-shaped’ palate, crowded teeth, and denser bone. However, Dr. Tarek had her teeth aligned beautifully with Invisalign, and smiling like she had never been able to before. It’s never too late!

Learn more about our approach to metal braces

Who is a candidate for metal braces?

Traditional metal braces are a tried and tested orthodontic procedure designed to straighten teeth and improve their function. At our practice, metal braces are a common choice for children and teens thanks to a few reasons:

  • A strong and durable solution
  • Cannot be removed by the patient (uninterrupted care and no risk of losing them)
  • Fun color customizations are available by changing elastics during every visit

Will braces interfere with everyday activities?

Although there are a few lifestyle adjustments, in general, patients can expect day-to-day routines to remain unchanged. For patients who enjoy singing, playing an instrument, or practicing contact sports, we’ll create a plan to keep your mouth and brackets safe.

At what age should my child see an orthodontist about braces?

Consistent with the guidelines of the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic exam at age seven. At this point, adult teeth have begun appearing and we can ensure proper spacing and alignment to allow for a healthier smile in growing children.
