Metal Braces in Kennett Square, PA
Tried-and-True Treatment Meets Tie-Free Braces for Speedier Results
If you had to wear traditional metal braces yourself as a kid, you probably remember dealing with annoying o-shaped rubber bands called “ligatures” that sprang off at the worst possible times. They tended to gunk up with food as well, making it tough to clean your teeth and gums. Thank heavens those days are gone. If you are looking for traditional metal braces in Kennett Square, PA, you’ll be happy to know that modern technology has greatly enhanced their effectiveness and comfort.
Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces
Today’s metal speed braces look small, sleek, and jewel-like. You’ll sometimes hear people call them “tie-free braces.” We also sometimes also refer to speed braces as “self-ligating brackets,” which is a fancy way of saying “self-binding.” This technology lets a brace’s archwire slide back and forth freely, using a “door” to secure it. Because of speed braces, we can finally say goodbye to railroad tracks, erratic rubber bands, and painful metal tie wires!
At Tamburrino Family Orthodontics, we are proud to offer In-OvationⓇ self-ligating brackets. These advanced metal or clear ceramic twin brackets use a special built-in clip. Specific kinds of archwires apply pressure to activate this clip, which then delivers just the right amount of pressure to each tooth. Because of that, you’ll notice fast, highly-targeted results. With speed braces, you will need fewer orthodontic adjustments, leaving more time to do the things you want.
In-Ovation X: Collaborating for the Future
Dr. Tamburrino is such a strong advocate of In-Ovation self-ligating braces that he was part of a collaborative team of renowned orthodontists who designed In-Ovation X, the ultimate self-ligating bracket. With its highly innovative design features and self-ligating benefits, In-Ovation X ensures the best possible experience in the future for both patients and providers.

**Orthodontic consultations for braces or clear aligners are always complimentary for both children and adults.
However, consultations for TMJ therapy or facial pain are highly specialized and require scheduling to afford more extensive discussion with Dr. Tamburrino. Due to the different nature of these visits, an $800 fee will be collected upon arrival. This fee includes a comprehensive TMJ evaluation, all 3D imaging, all discussion with Dr. Tamburrino, and development of a personalized treatment plan. If further treatment is indicated and could be beneficial, this $800 will then be applied as a downpayment to any future therapy.
