Fixed braces

Fixed braces

For patients needing an orthodontic treatment that stays at work twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, fixed braces are recommended and will achieve the best results.

Fixed braces are comprised of metal brackets, which are fixed to each tooth and linked together with wires. There are a variety of different types of fixed brace available, such as traditional metal braces that can be fixed onto the front of your teeth (labial braces), ceramic braces that have a white appearance instead of metal, and lingual braces that are fixed onto the back of your teeth.

There are  a variety of orthodontic systems that we can use when devising your treatment plan. At The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic, we are adept at all orthodontic systems, but currently recommend SureSmile Advanced for most of our patients due to the high levels of accuracy and control it allows us to be able to create truly bespoke treatments for your needs.

Which fixed braces are right for me?

A key benefit of fixed braces is that, as you can’t take them off throughout your treatment, you won’t risk forgetting to put them back in and delaying your progress. As for the type of fixed braces you choose, the decision is up to you.

Ceramic tooth-coloured braces can be a popular choice for patients concerned about the appearance of labial braces, as the colour of the brackets blend in with your smile.

Lingual braces are a great option for those who need more complex treatment than simple aligning but prefer the idea of almost invisible braces. These are bonded onto the backs of your teeth, so almost no one can tell you’re wearing them.

Some patients are happy to embrace traditional metal braces, particularly those who don’t have a high smile line.

Want to find out more?

We can provide you with an overview of all the options for your orthodontic treatment during a complimentary consultation with our treatment co-ordinator or you can discuss in relation to your specific needs and aims during a consultation with orthodontics specialist, Dr Chatoo.
