Fixed braces are one of the most popular choices for teeth straightening because of their predictable and reliable results. Fixed braces are often used in NHS orthodontic care but can also be fitted privately for both adults and teenagers.
Many Bupa Dental Care practices offer orthodontic treatment, including a range of fixed and discreet braces. If you’d like more information, contact your local practice. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
What are fixed braces?
Fixed braces consist of small brackets that are cemented to your teeth and joined together with wire. The wire is usually made of metal, although less visible ceramic versions are also available.
Fixed braces move your teeth in a very precise manner, and are the most common type of brace used to treat children.
What are the benefits of fixed braces?
If you have a clinical reason for needing orthodontic treatment, fixed braces can be a solution as they are able to fix:
- Severe overcrowding
- An excessively deep overbite or overjet
- Abnormal eruption of teeth
