METAL BRACES

We use two types of metal braces. The first is a type of fixed metal brace which uses small elastic rings to hold the orthodontic wire in position. These rings can be coloured & are very popular with our teenage patients. The colours can be changed at each visit. If you don’t fancy colours then elastic rings which blend in with the brace can be used.


The second type of fixed metal brace doesn’t use elastic rings to secure the wire & therefore doesn’t have an option to be coloured. This type of fixe brace is better suited for certain types of bite problem. It is known as A Damon Appliance. Your orthodontist will advise which is best for you.
