Your fixed braces treatment journey


Initial consultation

Your treatment begins with an initial consultation with our specialist orthodontist, David Gale. You have the chance to discuss your ideal smile and what you hope to achieve from your treatment, and ask us any questions. We examine your teeth and mouth, make sure you are suitable for fixed brace treatment and explain the treatment process in detail.


Planning and placement

We create your bespoke treatment plan, using digital scans and images of your teeth to ensure highly accurate straightening. When your brackets are ready, we use a special dental glue to place them onto the front surface of your teeth. We then place a thin archwire through the brackets, which applies the pressure to move your teeth to their ideal new positions.


Reliable straightening

Gradual and gentle forces begin to work on your teeth from the moment your metal or ceramic brackets are placed, and continue uninterrupted through your treatment. We see you for regular appointments to check on your progress and change and adjust the archwire if necessary to achieve an incredible outcome.


Your brand new smile!

When your treatment is complete, we invite you for an appointment in our practice. We carefully remove your brackets and wire and reveal your new smile for the first time! We give you a retainer to keep your teeth straight and leave you to start smiling with pride.

How can fixed braces help my smile?

We can use fixed braces to correct the majority of orthodontic problems, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps and incorrect bites. If you don’t like the way your teeth look, and want to achieve a new straighter smile, fixed braces could be a great option for you.

Metal fixed braces are the orthodontic treatment of choice for our NHS patients, and these can be personalised using different coloured elastics.

What are fixed braces?

Fixed braces are seen as the traditional straightening option, a well-established method that has been used for many years. Metal or ceramic brackets are stuck to your teeth for the duration of treatment, with a shaped wire held into place with elastic modules around the brackets.

Fixed braces offer an effective, reliable and simple straightening option. The brackets are strong and durable, and, as they are fixed to your teeth, your braces can’t get lost or damaged in the same way that removable braces could. Translucent ceramic fixed braces are now very popular, offering a discreet option as the small brackets are much less visible than their metal equivalent.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are fixed braces painful?

Placing the braces on your teeth is completely pain-free as this is a non-invasive procedure. You may find you notice some discomfort in the first few days after your brace is fitted, and each time it is adjusted, but this is temporary and will not last long.

Will other people be able to notice I have fixed braces?

Metal fixed braces are noticeable against your teeth and will stand out when you smile. Some patients prefer this option and enjoy the idea of using different colours on their brace. However, we do offer a more aesthetic alternative. Ceramic fixed braces are much more discreet and are not immediately noticeable. You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them. Please note that metal brackets will be used for NHS patients.

Can I remove my fixed braces?

As the name suggests, fixed braces are stuck to your teeth permanently during treatment and can’t be removed. At the end of your treatment, we will carefully remove the brackets for you to reveal your new smile!

Why do I need retainers?

Retainers are an important final stage of orthodontic treatment, and are vital for keeping your teeth in their new straight positions. You will need to wear your retainers for as long as you want your teeth to stay straight. We usually advise you to wear removable retainers overnight for the long term.

Will fixed braces damage my teeth?

Fixed braces will not damage your teeth. We use dental-safe strong adhesive to fix your brackets to the surface of your teeth, which will not damage the enamel. When your treatment is complete, we gently remove the brackets and clean the adhesive away to remove any residue.

Can I eat while wearing fixed braces?

Yes, as your fixed braces remain on your teeth for the entire duration of your treatment, you can eat while you are wearing them. However, it is important to avoid food that could cause unnecessary damage or decay, including acidic, very sticky or sweet food, and biting into hard food such as apples and crusty bread.

How long do fixed braces stay on for?

Traditional fixed braces usually stay on your teeth for anything from 18-24 months. You will need to visit your orthodontist every 12-16 weeks for a check and adjustment appointment.
