What are fixed braces?
Get results you love
Fixed braces are often referred to as ‘train track’ braces. The orthodontist attaches metal or tooth-coloured brackets to the teeth that are being realigned. The next step is to run a special wire over the brackets to pull the teeth into the right position.
Because the brackets are adhered to the teeth, patients won’t be able to take the braces off during the course of treatment.
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces. They have tooth-coloured or clear brackets that blend in with the natural colour of the teeth. The primary difference between ceramic and traditional braces relates to the type of orthodontic brackets that are bonded to the patient’s teeth. With ceramic braces, the brackets are clear or tooth-coloured, not metal.
With both methods, there’s still a metal wire that runs across the patient’s teeth and is held in place using elastic bands.
This difference in the colour of the brackets really does help to make it less obvious to others that a person is wearing braces, especially from a distance.
What are some other teeth straightening solutions?
Traditional fixed braces remain the most popular in orthodontic solutions. There are several other options available to patients looking to get that beautiful straight smile.
