Fixed braces are worn permanently throughout treatment and are made up of archwires and brackets. Gentle force is applied overtime to gradually move the patient’s teeth into a desired position.

Treatment time is between an average of 18-24 months and during this time you will need to take care of your brace – continuous damage and wear and tear will prolong your orthodontic treatment.

If you are worried about your brace maintenance and would like some additional advice, please do not hesitate to contact us straight away. If you are thinking about undergoing orthodontic treatment, please speak to one of our orthodontists at a consultation.
