Fixed braces

If you're looking to straighten your teeth and correct your bite, fixed orthodontic braces may be the right option for you.

What are fixed orthodontic braces?

Fixed orthodontic braces are a type of dental appliance that is attached to the teeth and cannot be removed by the patient. They consist of brackets, wires, and bands that work together to apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position. Fixed braces are commonly made of metal, but there are also options available that are tooth-colored or clear, making them less noticeable.

How do fixed orthodontic braces work?

Fixed orthodontic braces work by applying constant, gentle pressure to the teeth, encouraging them to move into their correct positions over time. The braces are adjusted periodically by your orthodontist to ensure that the teeth are moving properly. The brackets and wires work together to control the movement of the teeth, while the bands hold the brackets in place.

What are the benefits of fixed orthodontic braces?

Fixed orthodontic braces offer several benefits, including:

  • Effective at treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, and bite problems
