Fixed braces

Also known as train track braces, fixed braces are one of the most popular teeth straightening choices, due to their predictable and reliable results. They’re often used in NHS orthodontics but are also available privately, for all ages. Different types are available, including traditional metal braces and more discreet options, such as lingual and ceramic braces.

Many Bupa Dental Care practices offer a range of fixed options. For more information, contact your nearest practice offering orthodontics. They can answer any questions or help you book an orthodontics consultation.

What are fixed braces?

Fixed braces are made up of small brackets attached to each of your teeth and joined by a wire. Thicker wires are placed and adjusted overtime, creating a gentle pressure which gradually aligns your teeth.

Fixed braces cannot be removed for the duration of your treatment.

What are the benefits of fixed braces?

  • Fixed braces can treat a range of severities. This includes complex orthodontic problems such as extensive overcrowding, abnormal eruption of teeth and a very deep overbite. As a result, fixed braces are often recommended in severe cases.
  • Fixed braces offer predictable results. They move your teeth in a precise manner and unlike removable braces, treatment can’t be interrupted by taking them out for long periods
  • Some fixed options are very discreet, so people won’t necessarily know you have them.

What are the different types of fixed brace?

There are different types of fixed braces, for a range of needs and lifestyles.
