Fixed Metal Braces guide

Time-tested conventional fixed metal braces for a wide range of orthodontic needs.

The journey to a beautifully aligned smile with fixed metal braces begins with an initial consultation at our orthodontic practice. During this visit, our experienced orthodontist will thoroughly assess your oral health and orthodontic needs. X-rays, photographs, and impressions may be taken to create a personalised treatment plan. You'll have the opportunity to discuss your goals and any concerns, ensuring that your treatment aligns with your expectations.

Once your treatment plan is established, the next step is the placement of your fixed metal braces. During this appointment, the orthodontist will carefully attach brackets to your teeth and connect them with a resilient wire. This wire exerts gentle force to guide your teeth into their desired positions. Subsequent adjustment appointments are scheduled every few weeks to ensure the treatment progresses effectively. These adjustments are essential for fine-tuning and getting you one step closer to your perfect smile.

Throughout your orthodontic journey, maintaining excellent oral hygiene is vital. You'll receive guidance on how to keep your braces and teeth clean. Special brushes and flossing tools can assist in reaching difficult areas. Adhering to a recommended diet that minimises sticky and hard foods can help prevent damage to your braces. After your treatment is complete, you'll transition to retainers to maintain the results achieved. This final phase ensures that your new, confident smile remains beautiful for years to come.
