What are metal braces made out of?

Posted on Sunday, April 22nd, 2012 by drgalkin

Standard metal braces are made out of stainless steel.  This is one of the best metals to last long periods of time in the mouth.  This is because stainless steel does not corrode, does not cause reactions when left in the mouth, and can be polished so that they will not irritate the mouth.  Stainless steel has been used for over 60 years in orthodontics and is proven as the best substance for brace manufacturing.
