Do you struggle with gaps or misshapen teeth?

We have many solutions if you do. A very popular solution is fixed braces. This is one of the most effective ways of straightening your teeth.  Here is what to expect when getting fixed braces.

What are they?

  • Fixed braces have a wire running through square brackets which are attached to each tooth.
  • The brackets come in a range of colours, from blue to green, purple, white, yellow, pink, orange, as well as, black, grey, silver and gold. You can even mix the colours of your brackets.
  • Clear brackets are also available, so if you want your braces to be less visible this is an option for you. Invisalign is one of the most effective providers of ‘invisible’ aligner braces. They are essentially transparent and can often be less obtrusive than metal braces.
  • Similarly, Incognito braces are an option, which are braces hidden behind your teeth rather than outside

5 step quick process: how are fixed braces fitted?

The process will take 1-2 hours.

  1. Firstly the dentist will clean and dry your teeth
  2. Bonding glue is applied to each of your teeth
  3. The square brackets are placed on every tooth, colour squares added
  4. Finally, an archwire will be attached to connect each bracket together
  5. Every few months your orthodontist will tighten the wire and keep track of your progress.

This wire running through the brackets attached to your teeth will gradually pull your teeth closer together and into the correct position
