To get the smile you want, our Orthodontist will understand your dental concerns and determine if metal braces are suitable for you.
At your first appointment, we will take digital x-rays, photographs of your smile and models of your teeth in preparation for your metal braces to be fitted.
At your second appointment, we will fit your metal braces. Conventional metal braces use metal brackets and ties to hold the arch wire in place. A bracket will be bonded to the front surface of the teeth that need to be braced. An arch wire is threaded between the brackets which apply forces to the teeth to help the teeth to move.
Our team will see you every 4-6 weeks to bend, shape and tighten your arch wires to achieve the desired results.
The treatment length of metal braces can vary and will depend on your case; usually it lies between 9-24 months.
Once your treatment is complete we will provide you with a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in position and you can enjoy your new smile for a lifetime.
