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 consist of individual metal pads glued to each tooth then joined together by a metal wire which is changed for stronger wires during treatment. These are held in place by small elastic circles which can be coloured.

Ceramic – These consist of individual tooth coloured pads glued to each tooth then joined together by a metal wire which is changed for stronger wires during treatment. These are held in place by small elastic circles. Available on a private basis

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to commonly asked questions:

  • Age – There’s no set “best” age to get braces. For most kids, the best time for braces is generally between ages 10 and 14, when a child’s mouth and head are still growing and the permanent teeth are erupting. The exact time depends on growth and on how quickly a child’s adult teeth come in. However, braces can still be effective in older teenagers and adults.
  • Speech –As with traditional braces, every person reacts differently. However, most patients do not experience a speech impediment. Those patients who do experience a minor speech impediment during the first couple of weeks find that this improves with each passing day. Your orthodontist can also provide you with speech exercises.
  • Treatment Length – On average, most kids wear braces for 1 to 3 years, but this can vary greatly for each person based on growth and the severity of the problem. It also depends on the cooperation of the patient, including maintaining good oral hygiene, wearing auxiliaries such as rubber bands as directed, avoiding damaging food, and keeping all of their follow-up appointments.
