How are braces fitted?

  • Removable Braces: This consists of a resin/plastic base with bespoke metal wire components and simply clips into place.
  • Fixed Braces: Your teeth will firstly be cleaned and conditioned before little square metal or ceramic buttons are glued to the teeth. A thin piece of wire is then held into the buttons using elastics.
  • Clear Aligners: After the orthodontist has taken bite impressions of your teeth, you will be provided with a series of bespoke clear, removable aligners. These are simply inserted into place and are removed for eating, drinking and cleaning.
