Metal Braces (Fixed Appliance Therapy)
Creating your best smile
Fixed braces are one of the most popular treatments for creating beautiful smiles. Made of super-strong and safe stainless steel, they are attached onto the teeth with tooth coloured resin to help address a range of orthodontic issues. An orthodontic wire is attached to each bracket using elastic rings. Your orthodontist will carefully progress to using thicker wires throughout the treatment to encourage your teeth to move into the desired position. When this is achieved, the brackets and wires are easily removed. Being fixed in place ensures that the braces are working constantly to straighten the teeth, and this can make them a faster treatment option than removable braces.
Worried about how your metal braces will feel? That’s only natural. We will carefully explain how the process works and what you can expect throughout your treatment. It’s common to feel some discomfort initially and when the wires are tightened. But this is also a sign that the treatment is helping your teeth to move into the right position. As a private dental practice, we can offer the highest standard of orthodontic treatment and techniques and you will be seen by an orthodontic specialist at every appointment.
