Fixed metal braces

Often, teeth need to be guided more accurately than they can be using a removable brace. So a fixed brace is used. This has brackets and bands which are temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. You can’t take the appliance out yourself, so it is called a fixed appliance.

Will I be able to eat and drink as normal?

To avoid any damage to your teeth or braces, you'll need to steer clear of the following during your treatment:

  • Sugary snacks and drinks between meals
  • Anything particularly sticky, hard or chewy
  • Fizzy drinks and large quantities of fruit juice

Will I be able to play contact sports? 

Absolutely, but you'll need to wear a mouth guard. We can custom-make you a mouthguard to wear over your braces. To find out more speak to one of the Station House Dental & Implant Clinic dentists.

Will I be able to play a musical instrument?

Fixed braces can make it trickier to play wind or brass instruments. Most patients quickly adapt, but you should discuss this with your orthodontists. They might recommend a removable brace, which can be taken out for performances. 

Whats involved in the treatment?

Your kilsyth dentist will start with an initial consultation taking x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth. From here you will receive a tailored treatment plan explaining your treatment options and costs. 

Every 6 - 8 weeks subsequent visits are required, allowing adjustments to be made, getting you one step closer to your dream smile. After this stage is completed you will then have removable retainers to maintain your new smile.

The time is takes for your braces to work their magic is dependent on the severity of your case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need braces on for longer.
