Fixed Metal Braces

Fixed Metal
Braces

Traditional ‘train track’ braces have come a long way. They are far smaller, lower profile and easier to attach than ever before.  Teenagers, and even adults, now enjoy showing off their traditional braces with coloured elastics, from rainbows to coloured patterns. 

 

Conventional metal braces are highly reliable and clinically efficient. 

Fixed conventional braces are available on the NHS subject to dentist referral and clinical suitability.

Getting the best results

  1. Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other are good candidates for orthodontic treatment. You can find out if you are a suitable candidate by starting a free digital orthodontic assessment at your nearest NEO practice
     

  2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to determine the course of action.
     

  3. Brackets are bonded to individual teeth and wires clip onto them that gently guide the teeth into position over time.
     

  4. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.
