Some people still insist that metal braces are magnetic. So let’s set the record straight about one of the biggest myths that should put a smile on your face. Newsflash! Braces made of metal are not magnetic! Now that we’ve cleared that up you can safely proceed through the airport’s metal detector or, for example, get an MRI. Another thing- not only are braces made of metal not magnetic but you no longer must be self-conscious that you have a magnet-attracting cage in your mouth when you open it to smile. To ensure that perfect smile, today’s modern braces made of metal are made of metal alloys that are not magnetic. They may look like the braces that your parents may have worn but it’s even possible that even they never experienced magnetic problems with their metal braces. In any event, you won’t.
