Metal fixed braces

Fixed metal braces are one of the most common types of orthodontic treatments we offer. Brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and connected with a very thin metal wire that applies gentle pressure to your teeth to help guide them into a straighter position.

 

How do metal braces work?

Braces are used in dentistry to align and straighten your teeth, helping to position them with regard to your bite. Traditional fixed metal braces are still the most common orthodontic appliance fitted by orthodontists in the UK. Our specialist orthodontists believes they achieve a high degree of control over the final positioning of the teeth and provide a tried and tested route towards enjoying confidence-boosting results.

Fixed metal braces are glued to the surface of your teeth. They are designed to stay there throughout your treatment and guide the movement of your teeth, gently but firmly, into their optimal position. The braces are linked together by a thin wire, known as an archwire, which acts to move the teeth, backed up with elastics to hold the two components together.
