Fixed Braces

BRACES

Our braces service makes crooked, twisted or gaped teeth a thing of the past!

In today’s society where your self-confidence, romantic prospects and even employment success are closely related to your smile, it pays to have straight, confident teeth. Our brace service focusing on creating harmony between your teeth, jaw and face for durable results. Because there are so many orthodontic methods out there, our first step is always to assess which is the right brace for you.

About fixed braces

Fixed braces are made of brackets and bands cemented to your teeth, and thin metal wires that push your teeth gently into the desired position. Brackets are made of either metal or tooth-coloured plastic or ceramic, so they’re not too noticeable.

Benefits of braces:

  • Braces can radically improve your smile’s appearance and give you a huge confidence boost. In turn, this can improve your career and social success.
  • They can also help your mouth function better. By straightening your smile, the forces exerted on the braces when you talk, eat or even move your teeth are in balance, so you’ll experience long term health of your teeth, gums and jawbone.
  • Straight teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth, so your chance of suffering with tooth decay and gum disease is much lower.

The steps of fixed braces treatment

Before having braces placed, you will need a check-up for gum problems or dental decay.

  1. We’ll take photos, X-rays and impressions of your teeth. Our specialist orthodontist will plan your treatment using these records. You might need to have some teeth removed if they are crowded and there is not enough space in your jaw for all of them. There will be no noticeable gap when your teeth are straight.
  2. The specialist orthodontist will explain your treatment plan in detail before treatment begins. Before we put your braces on, we’ll place separators between your molars for about a week. This is to make space for the molar bands.
  3. The bands and brackets will be bonded to your teeth and your treatment will have officially begun!

During subsequent appointments, the specialist orthodontist will make necessary adjustments to your braces to help speed the process along.

Removing your braces

When treatment is complete, we can remove your fixed braces and we’ll also polish your teeth for a stunning finish. We’ll make moulds of your teeth once the braces are off, so we can create your retainers. Once your braces are taken off, you will need retainers to make sure your teeth stay in their new, straight position.
