Our dental practices offer a range of orthodontic treatments, including traditional wire braces. Fixed braces are the traditional orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth. Braces are a combination of brackets and wires that shift your teeth through constant, gentle pressure on your teeth.
Brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth semi-permanently, for either a portion or the entire duration of your orthodontic treatment. Traditional fixed braces have improved in their function and size and can be made of metal or tooth-colored porcelain.
Porcelain brackets offer an aesthetic advantage in addition to being a hypo-allergenic, nickel-free option.
Wires are attached to the bracket through either a locking mechanism or elastics. Elastic ties can be coloured or clear, to match to your personality or preference.
Treatment progress is monitored in regular intervals, typically every 4-6 weeks. At those appointments brackets and wires are often adjusted to continue shifting your teeth into the correct position.
Many people are interested in straightening their teeth without braces. Orthostyle also offers a range of orthodontic solutions that can help you achieve this. Contact us to book a consultation in order to determine the best way forward for you.
