Fixed braces

Fixed braces are probably what you think of when you picture orthodontic treatment, but modern braces are more discreet, comfortable and accurate than ever before!

What are fixed braces?

Fixed braces are orthodontic appliances that patients can’t remove. They consist of brackets that are attached to the front of each tooth and held together by a wire. They are one of the most effective ways to straighten your teeth.

How do fixed braces work?

Using a series of brackets, archwires and elastics, fixed braces apply gentle pressure to your teeth. A bracket is fixed to each individual tooth using a special adhesive, and the archwire runs through them. It is all held together with the help of elastics.

When you come in for your regularly scheduled adjustment appointments, Dr Schuth will bend the archwires at just the right angle to apply pressure that guides your teeth into the proper positions.

Fixed braces we offer at Trinity House Orthodontics

We can provide you with the following options at our practice:

Metal braces

Stainless metal braces are well-known and easily recognised. Besides being highly reliable, this appliance is suitable for most orthodontic cases, making it the appliance of choice for most practitioners.

We can also customise the brackets with coloured ligatures or modules to make them look unique and show off your fun personality.

Gold braces

Gold braces are a brilliant alternative to traditional metal braces. The ‘3M Unitek Victory Series’ 24K gold-plated brackets provide a great deal of aesthetic appeal and the same great efficiency.

3M self-ligating brackets

3M self-ligating braces are fixed braces that don’t require ligatures or modules. With this type of braces, teeth can move more efficiently, which means fewer adjustments. You can choose from Damon®, Smartclip, Clarity® SL and Vision LP brands of self-ligating brackets.

Radiance braces

Radiance brackets are polished jewels made from sapphire, the second hardest mineral known to man. Each crystal bracket is wonderfully smooth, incredibly strong and virtually invisible when worn.
