Traditional Fixed Braces

Reliable Orthodontic Appliance

These are commonly referred to as ‘train track’ braces. They are permanently fixed to the teeth using a dental glue and cannot be removed by the patient. They are adjusted regularly and are usually in place for approximately 12 -18 months depending on the complexity of treatment and how well the patient cares for the brace.

Metal vs Ceramic

Metal – These are often referred to as tradition or train track braces. They consist of metal brackets attached to the teeth using a special adhesive and linked together using metal wires secured in place with small elastics. Wires are adjusted and changed at intervals to realign the teeth. These braces can be customised by selecting coloured elastics at each adjustment.

Ceramic – These use the same mechanics as metal braces but the pads that are attached to the teeth are made of a clear or tooth coloured ceramic material therefore more discreet and less visible.
