Fixed braces consist of a series of small square attachments (brackets) cemented to the teeth. These brackets are highly sophisticated as every tooth has its own bracket design engineered to achieve optimal final tooth position and angulation.
They are available as either ceramic or mini metal brackets. The cosmetic brackets blend in with the colour of the teeth.
To keep this treatment affordable, we ensure our brace prices are highly competitive compared to other specialist paediatric orthodontists in London, we even offer 0% Interest Free credit to help spread the cost.
Specialist orthodontist – GDC No 177467
Our highly skilled orthodontics team at Toothbeary is led by our specialist orthodontist Dr Nadia Hikmat.
Nadia has over 13 years extensive experience in dentistry. She attained her Membership in Orthodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and achieved a Masters in Orthodontics from King’s College London. She is experienced in Damon braces, Invisalign® and certified in the use of the Win and Forestadent 2D lingual brace system.
After completion of orthodontic treatment, teeth tend to slip back towards their original positions. This, if allowed to happen, is known as “relapse”.
The part of orthodontic treatment which prevents relapse is called “Retention”. We regard retention and the long term stability as one of the most important and difficult parts of orthodontic care.
We combine the use of removable and fixed retainers. Removable retainers are usually made of a thin sheet of clear plastic moulded to fit over the teeth during the night.
Fixed retainers consist of fine customised wires bonded to the inner surfaces of the upper and lower front teeth, which are invisible and unobtrusive.
There are certain dental problems that are more prone to relapse, such as twisted, overlapping or spaced teeth and certain types of treatment such as arch widening or moving lower incisors forward.
“The most amazing place for children’s teeth. I first took my two girls there about six years ago as they were pretty nervous of all things dental… now they love going. From the moment you walk in, past the huge bear, there is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Everyone we have had contact with has been brilliant – dentists, dental assistants, hygienists and receptionists are all superb – their manner, reassurance and calm air all contribute to a great experience for the children.
Anmy has dealt with my daughter’s ongoing orthodontic treatment brilliantly; teeth extractions are managed with compassion and the children get a gold coin (which can be used in a slot machine on the way out). I can’t recommend it enough!”
Our unique approach to treating your child is designed around building trust and confidence through positive experiences so we can promote and reinforce good oral hygiene habits whilst instilling the need to care for their own teeth.
