These fixed braces are a cosmetic alternative to the conventional metal fixed braces and can be used to treat similar irregularities of the teeth. They offer the distinct advantage of being almost invisible.
Fixed Appliances are placed when all the adult teeth have developed in the mouth (approx. age 12-14).
Fixed braces can be used to correct crowding, close spaces etc
At the end of your orthodontic treatment, you will be provided with a retainer which may be a removable brace, a fixed retainer or a combination of both. A removable retainer needs to be worn for 2 days full time, then every night in bed for at least a year and after this at least 3 nights per week long term. This will prevent the teeth moving back to their original position.
A fixed retainer is a wire cemented to the back of the upper or lower teeth. Fixed retainers are left on indefinitely unless they break or cause damage to the teeth or gums.
