Metal Braces: Still on Top

At Fiesta Orthodontics, Dr. Ayla and Dr. Arslan use modern braces’ unique blend of reliability and effectiveness to help countless San Antonio residents like you reveal their best smiles.

That’s because metal braces have stood the test of time—and modern braces have only gotten better at getting you the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

Let’s dive a little deeper and discover why metal braces might just be the perfect fit for your smile journey.

More Comfortable, Less Noticeable

Not only are today’s metal braces even more effective at straightening your teeth, but the days of bulky, uncomfortable braces are long gone. Metal brackets today are smaller, lighter, and less noticeable, making them a more comfortable, discreet option.

So whether you’re a teenager stepping into the world of orthodontics or an adult seeking a smile makeover, tried-and-true metal braces offer you a dependable path to straighter teeth.

Classic Treatment, Upgraded

Today’s metal braces come equipped with modern enhancements and a proven track record. Add in the precision of modern orthodontics, and you can expect straighter, healthier teeth—and a shorter overall treatment time.

How Metal Braces Work Their Magic

At Fiesta Orthodontics in San Antonio, we want to make sure you understand all your treatment options. Dr. Ayla, Dr. Arslan, and our team are here to help you learn about metal braces, a popular choice for straightening teeth.

So, what are metal braces? They have three main parts:

  • Brackets: These small metal squares on each tooth hold the archwire that helps move your teeth. Today's brackets are smaller, less noticeable, and even more effective than past braces.
  • Archwire: This thin metal wire goes through the brackets and puts pressure on your teeth to move them to the right spots. Sometimes, Dr. Ayla or Dr. Arslan will need to adjust or change your archwire during your checkups.
  • Elastics or Bands: These elastic bands fit around each bracket to hold the archwire in place. They also help move your teeth by spreading pressure from the wire evenly across your smile. And you can pick fun colors for them!

Choosing Fiesta Orthodontics means getting care that’s just for you. Dr. Ayla and Dr. Arslan will make sure your braces are adjusted perfectly to give you the best results in the shortest time.

Remember, metal braces are just one option we offer. We’re here to help you find the best treatment for your smile.

Consultation & Customization

Your first step is a detailed consultation. We'll take precise measurements, X-rays, and 3D imaging molds of your teeth. This helps us create braces tailored just for you. Remember that no two smiles are the same, and neither are any two sets of braces!


Once your braces are ready, we'll set a date to have them applied. This process is straightforward and painless. The brackets are bonded to your teeth, and the archwire is threaded through. You'll leave our office with a brand-new smile in the making.


Every 4 – 6 weeks, you'll visit us for adjustments. This is when Dr. Ayla or Dr. Arslan will tighten or replace the archwire, ensuring your teeth continue moving in the right direction. These visits are also a great time to ask questions and share any concerns.


While wearing braces, it's crucial to maintain good oral hygiene. We'll provide you with all the tools and tips you need, from special toothbrushes to floss threaders. And yes, you can still enjoy most of your favorite foods! Just be cautious with very hard or sticky items.


Once your teeth have reached their desired positions, it's time to celebrate! We'll remove your braces, revealing your transformed smile.

But remember that the journey doesn't end here. Retainers will play a vital role in maintaining your new smile, and we'll guide you through that phase as well.

Choosing Fiesta Orthodontics means you're not just getting braces—you're getting a dedicated team that's with you every step of the way. We're here to ensure your journey to a perfect smile is smooth, informed, and something to smile about!
