Fixed braces

Many teenagers opt for fixed braces in order to straighten their teeth. Fixed braces are also known as traditional braces or “train tracks”. They are usually made of metal or ceramic brackets and wires that are glued or bonded to the teeth. The brackets and wires work together to move the teeth into the correct position.

Fixed braces are usually worn for 12 to 24 months, depending on the severity of the case. After treatment is completed, patients will need to wear a retainer in order to keep their teeth in place.

Fixed braces are a popular choice for many patients because they tend to be more effective at correcting certain dental issues than other types of braces. 

For teenagers who are more conscious about the about the appearance of fixed braces, there are optional cosmetic brackets to blend in with the colour of the teeth,

Once your course of orthodontic treatment is finished, teeth may tend to drift back towards their pre-treatment state. Allowing this to occur, which is known as “relapse”, should ideally be avoided.

Retention is a key part of orthodontic treatment and is essential for maintaining long term stability. We recognise that it is one of the most challenging facets of adequate  care.

At Toothbeary, we utilise both removable and fixed retainers. With removable retainers, these are usually crafted using a thin sheet of transparent plastic, which is formed to the shape of the teeth to wear during sleep.

With the fixed retainer option, these are customised wires bonded to the inner surfaces of the upper and lower front teeth, providing a subtle and discreet effect.

Certain dental conditions are more likely to relapse, including misaligned teeth like twisted, overlapping, or spaced teeth. Likewise, particular treatments such as arch widening and moving lower incisors forward may also be at risk of relapsing.

Google review from Google Business

“Thank you Toothbeary, every person we dealt with was full of compassion and had my child’s best interest at heart. My child was anxious about seeing the dentist and I was anxious about the sedation, everything went by smoothly and within a few hours my child was back to his old self. We are very grateful to have found Toothbeary, you went above and beyond and gave sound advice for the future and how we can introduce my youngest to good dental health. Thank you!”
