Benefits of fixed braces

Your orthodontist has total control

One of the major benefits of fixed braces is that they offer excellent control of your teeth so you can feel confident that your teeth are always moving because the metal wires and brackets are fixed into place. At each visit (every 4-6 weeks) the wire will be changed and/ adjusted to fitness each tooth’s movement and desired alignment.

THEY’RE DURABLE

Another advantage of fixed braces is that they are strong, durable and rarely break!

THEY’RE AVAILABLE IN CERAMIC

If you’re keen to benefit from fixed braces but don’t like the idea of a traditional brace, you can upgrade to tooth-coloured ceramic brackets, for a more aesthetic smile.

TREATMENT IS STRAIGHTFORWARD

In comparison to removable aligner systems, which requires you to change them every 2 weeks and remember to wear them for 22 hours a day, fixed braces are simple. The brackets are fitted at your bond up appointment and they constantly work until they are debonded.

YOU CAN GET STARTED RIGHT AWAY

Once you’ve had your orthodontic assessment, your next appointment is your brace fitting.
