Fixed Appliances

Features of a fixed appliance

Fixed appliances which are also commonly known as ‘train tracks’. They straighten the teeth using brackets which are stuck on to the teeth and a wire which is inserted through the brackets to create tension to move the teeth. Ceramic (tooth coloured), gold and silver brackets are available to suit each patients preference.


Lingual Appliances

Hidden braces

The word “lingual” originates from a Latin word meaning “tongue”. Lingual appliances are used to correct misaligned teeth and bite problems, using a fixed brace that has been bonded to the tongue side of the teeth.


Invisalign Braces

Clear removable aligners

Invisalign is a removable brace system that uses a series of custom-moulded aligners to move your teeth. No brackets, no wires, just clear removable aligners…



Keeping that perfect smile after treatment

Following orthodontic treatment to straighten the teeth, the teeth have a tendency to return to their original position, which is why wearing retainers is so important. Wearing a retainer is simple, but it is actually a complex piece of equipment and a significant part of your orthodontic treatment.
