Transform Your Smile With Metal Braces

Have you been dreaming of getting a beautiful, aligned smile? Metal braces from Profound Orthodontics can make your dreams a reality.

What Are Metal Braces?

Metal braces have been transforming smiles for decades, and they've only gotten better.

Dr. Justin Kammo uses modern metal braces to straighten smiles for patients of all ages in Bingham Farms, Keego Harbor, and Northville.

Braces work by applying gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into their ideal positions.

What Are Metal Braces Made Of?

Take a closer look at the materials that make up metal braces:



The brackets used in metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel. These small, durable metal pieces are attached to the front of each tooth using a special adhesive. The brackets are anchors for the rest of the braces' components, allowing for precise tooth movement.


The archwire is the main component of metal braces that connects the brackets. Archwires are made of a flexible and sturdy alloy, such as nickel-titanium or stainless steel. The wire puts gentle pressure on your teeth, guiding them into straighter positions.



Elastics, also known as rubber bands, are often used with metal braces. They connect the brackets to the archwire, helping to align your bite and correct any jaw misalignments.

How Metal Braces Work

Metal braces apply consistent and gentle pressure to your teeth, guiding them into proper alignment. Here's how metal braces transform your smile:


Consultation & Planning

When you get to our Bingham Farms, Keego Harbor, or Northville office, you'll meet our friendly team. They'll take some pictures and X-rays of your smile to get a detailed picture of what's happening.

Next, Dr. Kammo will examine your smile and discuss your goals. He'll create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique dental needs.


Braces Placement

Once your treatment plan is in place, Dr. Kammo will attach the brackets to your teeth with special glue. This process is painless and usually takes about an hour.

Archwire Installation

After the brackets are in place, Dr. Kammo will thread the archwire through each one. This wire acts as a gentle force that guides your teeth into their correct positions over time.


Regular Adjustments

Throughout your treatment, you'll visit our clinic for periodic adjustments. During these appointments, Dr. Kammo will tighten or replace the archwire to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.


Final Stages & Retention

Once your teeth are perfectly aligned, Dr. Kammo will remove your braces. He'll give you a custom retainer to stabilize your teeth and stop them from shifting to maintain your new smile. This stage of treatment is essential to keep your smile straight for life.
