What are fixed braces?
Fixed braces are made up of small brackets attached to each of your teeth and joined by a wire. Thicker wires are placed and adjusted overtime, creating a gentle pressure which gradually aligns your teeth.
Fixed braces cannot be removed for the duration of your treatment.
What are the benefits of fixed braces?
- Fixed braces can treat a range of severities. This includes complex orthodontic problems such as extensive overcrowding, abnormal eruption of teeth and a very deep overbite. As a result, fixed braces are often recommended in severe cases.
- Fixed braces offer predictable results. They move your teeth in a precise manner and unlike removable braces, treatment can’t be interrupted by taking them out for long periods
- Some fixed options are very discreet, so people won’t necessarily know you have them.
