Fixed braces

Fixed braces are the original orthodontic treatment method, but they have come a long way. Now, braces are more comfortable, more discreet and more efficient than ever.

How do fixed braces work?

Fixed braces use a series of small metal brackets (attached to the front of each tooth) with a thin metal archwire running through them. This is all held in place with small elastics, which can be customised in fun colour combinations to suit your mood.

To straighten your teeth, you will visit our practice for regular adjustment appointments. Your Specialist Orthodontist will make small bends in your archwire that will place gentle pressure on your teeth. This pressure will guide them into proper alignment over time.

Benefits of fixed metal braces


Fixed appliances are more accurate than removable appliances and are generally used for treating more difficult cases.


We can use fixed braces to treat issues from simple to complex in all ages.


The metal brackets are tough, so you don’t need to worry as much about damaging them during treatment.


Fixed metal braces are one of the most budget-friendly orthodontic options.
