Tulsa, Oklahoma Braces
Providing Braces to Tulsa and Surrounding Areas since 1994.
Traditional braces have had a reputation for being awkward and obvious, but because of our modern approach to orthodontics, you will benefit from braces that are smaller, less visible, and more comfortable than ever before. Sleeker brackets and lighter wires improve the appearance and feel of these braces. This means you will also have less irritation in your mouth.
The Brands We Use
The sliding mechanism makes the braces easier to keep clean, improves your overall dental health, and is more discreet.
Pitts 21 Braces
The Pitts 21 system is designed to achieve predictably excellent results in an efficient manner, often several months sooner than could be achieved with conventional braces.
Traditional Braces Frequently Asked Questions
Before applying the brackets, Dr. Cooper, Dr. Misner, and our team will collect photos and X-rays of your mouth. Sometimes we’ll use our iTero Element scanner to scan each of your teeth and the layout of your gums and mouth. If necessary, this process takes 10-15 minutes and provides an extremely accurate 3D view of your mouth.
After the X-Ray and optional scan, the information will be used to help create your customized treatment plan. This will include how each tooth needs to be moved to get it in the best possible position.
Dr. Cooper or Dr. Misner will decide how to place the brackets based on this information. For example, if you have some teeth that need to be tilted, the placement of those brackets will be different than the placement of brackets for teeth that need to be turned.
Once the brackets have been attached, Dr. Cooper or Dr. Misner will insert the wire. Bends in the wire will provide different types of pressure on different teeth. A bend in the wire is how most orthodontists make specific and precise movements.
For example, a bend can help a tooth that is twisted to turn and face the right way, or aligning one tooth that is too far forward with one that is too far back. This process of tooth movement is called remodeling and involves minor changes in the bone that surrounds the roots of your teeth.
Traditional metal braces also come with a fun new twist without any extra cost - you can customize your braces with color. The elastics that fit around your brackets come in a wide variety of colors that let you showcase your personality whenever you want.

Braces are great at fixing complex tooth issues. They can work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might. This can potentially shorten your treatment time.
Traditional braces at Cooper, & Misner Orthodontics in Tulsa are a cost-effective option because they don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments do. The strength, durability, and affordability of traditional braces keep them the top treatment for our Tulsa, Jenks, Bixby, and Glenpool orthodontic patients, year after year!
This is what everyone wants to know. Every mouth is different, and every orthodontic patient responds to treatment in their own way. Treatment time with traditional braces will be different every time.
The average time spent in metal braces is around 18 to 22 months but could be shorter or longer, depending on the individual and severity of their treatment.
