These are the most commonly used type of brace – the traditional brace that you may well be familiar with. They consist of small stainless steel brackets bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Wires are slotted through the brackets and secured in place with small ligatures (elastics).
Fixed braces give the Orthodontist a great deal of control over the tooth movement and therefore the finished results are consistently of a very high standard. They are very effective in difficult cases that are not suitable for other types of orthodontic treatment such as clear aligners.
Fixed braces require regular adjustments every 6 – 8 weeks and typically treatment duration ranges from 9 to 18 months depending on each individual case.
Metal bracket treatment starts from £1,800 for a single arch and from £2500 for both upper and lower arches.
