Fixed brace work
Welcome to the Promenade Dental Practice.
Our ground floor premises right on the seafront combines convenience and accessibility with a relaxing and modern environment.
Orthodontics is an area of dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth so that you can correct your bite and make the most of your smile.
Fixed braces are non-removable and are made up of brackets that are glued to each tooth and linked with wires. The braces are designed to apply gentle pressure over 12 – 24 months to move your teeth into the right position.
Orthodontics has benefitted from many advances and today treatment is faster and a lot more comfortable than it was in the past. This is what you can expect:
- We’ll assess if a fixed brace is the right treatment for you and before treatment begins, impressions, photos and x-rays are taken so we can determine what course of action to take.
- The brackets will then be bonded to individual teeth and wires clip onto them so that teeth are guided into position.
- Through regular visits and check-ups, we’ll make sure that everything stays on course and any adjustments that are needed are made.
- You have to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment and then when the time is right, your braces are removed and you’ll have the smile you’d always hoped for.
