Fixed braces

Fixed braces

Fixed braces, also known as traditional braces, are orthodontic appliances used to correct misaligned teeth and bite issues. They consist of brackets bonded to the front surface of each tooth and connected by wires and bands.


How they work:

  1. Brackets: Small metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth using a special adhesive.
  2. Archwire: A thin wire is threaded through the brackets and adjusted periodically to apply pressure, gradually moving the teeth to their proper positions.
  3. Elastics: Rubber bands may be used to enhance tooth movement and correct bite alignment.


  • Effective: Fixed braces are highly effective in treating a wide range of dental issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps and bite misalignment.
  • Customisable: Braces can be customised with coloured bands to suit your personal style.
  • Predictable results: We will create a personalised treatment plan to achieve desired results.


  • Regular adjustments: Periodic visits to us are necessary for adjustments to your wires and bands.
  • Oral hygiene: Proper oral hygiene is essential to prevent plaque build up around brackets and maintain healthy gums.
  • Dietary considerations: Avoid hard, sticky, or sugary foods that can damage the braces or increase risk of cavities.

Your orthodontic journey

  • Patience: Orthodontic treatment with fixed braces typically takes 18-24 months, depending on the severity of your case.
  • Comfort: While you may experience some discomfort or soreness initially, it will gradually diminish as your teeth adjust.
  • Confidence: Embrace your journey to a straighter smile, knowing that each adjustment brings you close to the confident, radiant smile you deserve.
