Fixed Braces

Fixed braces

Straight teeth not only improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but they are also healthier, and better functioning. Straight teeth allow for easier cleaning, which leads to building less plaque, forming fewer cavities, and keeping your gums healthier. One of the best, most predictable and effective ways for teeth straightening is with fixed braces.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces often referred to as clear or tooth-coloured braces, are a type of fixed orthodontic brackets. Like traditional metal braces, they are used to straighten your teeth and adjust the bite. The main difference between ceramic braces and conventional fixed braces is the material the brackets are made of. 

Traditional metal fixed braces

Traditional Metal Braces

The traditional metal braces are one of the most effective and commonly used ways to treat overcrowded, crooked teeth, jaw problems, misaligned bites, and address speaking or eating problems. 

Self-ligating fixed braces

Self-ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces are another type of fixed braces. Unlike traditional braces that use elastic ligatures to hold the archwire, the self-ligating brackets have a built-in clip mechanism to engage the wire.
