Billings Metal Braces

Sturdy Smile Style

At Montana Smiles Orthodontics in Billings, metal braces are a top choice for many. Their durability, versatility, and consistent results make them a terrific option for effective orthodontic treatment.

How Do Metal Braces Work?

At Montana Smiles Orthodontics, Dr. Hecht expertly guides your teeth into perfect alignment using metal braces, a reliable orthodontic method.

Here's our approach to crafting your metal braces:

3D Imaging Tech

Our first step is to get a comprehensive view of your mouth using our state-of-the-art iTero Element scanner.

This quick, approximately 15-minute scan provides a three-dimensional image of your bite, allowing Dr. Hecht to tailor a treatment plan just for you.

Placing the Brackets

Utilizing the detailed 3D images, Dr. Hecht carefully determines the optimal placement for each bracket.

The precise location varies, depending on whether a tooth requires angling or rotation for ideal alignment.

Installing the Wire

Dr. Hecht skillfully inserts the archwire through each bracket.

As your treatment progresses, he'll adjust the archwire to ease your teeth into their best positions.

Following Up

Regular adjustments and check-ins are critical steps toward your perfect smile.

Dr. Hecht will fine-tune your braces every few weeks, monitoring your progress closely. Additional tools like rubber bands may be used to assist the alignment process.

What Braces Can Do for You

Metal braces offer a comprehensive approach to tackling various orthodontic issues. Here's a breakdown of what they can do:


An imbalanced bite involves more than your appearance. It can cause problems like digestive difficulties and accelerated tooth wear.

With Dr. Hecht's skilled guidance, metal braces can address various bite issues, including overbites, underbites, and crossbites.


Crowding & Overlapping

Crowded or overlapping teeth can trap plaque and food particles, leading to dental dilemmas.

Metal braces apply consistent pressure to reposition your teeth, enhancing the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw under Dr. Hecht's care.


Gaps between your teeth can impact your smile's look and function.

Metal braces work effectively to close these spaces, aligning your teeth for a unified look and improved functionality.
