Our Ephrata orthodontist understands why you wouldn’t want your braces to set off a metal detector. After all, just imagine: you’re standing in line at the airport. You’ve taken off your shoes, pulled your laptop out of its bag, emptied your pockets, and jostled to get your things onto the conveyor belt. The last thing you need is for your metal braces treatment to be announced with an alarm the second you step through the metal detector!
Our Ephrata orthodontist has great news for you, though. That isn’t going to happen. You may have to deal with a lot of other headaches at the airport, but your braces won’t be one of them.
Our Ephrata Orthodontist Gives the Green Light on Metal Detectors
You may ask, though: Aren’t braces made of metal? Why won’t a metal detector sense them? There are two primary reasons that your braces won’t cause a problem at the airport…
Reason #1: Not Enough Metal
There needs to be enough metal present before an airport metal detector starts flashing. Even braces with fully metal brackets and wires still won’t have enough metal to pass that threshold.
Reason #2: Wrong Material
Not all metals are created equally. The type of metal used in braces is lightweight and typically off metal detectors’ radar.
