Get the straight teeth you’ve always imagined.
Fitted braces are one of the most effective methods of teeth straightening treatment. The most well-known type of fitted braces are metal braces, often known as ‘train tracks’.
What are metal braces?
Metal braces are the traditional method of orthodontic treatment and are usually what people think of when they think of orthodontics. Metal braces use small metal brackets which are attached to the front surface of your teeth, and a soft archwire that threads through these brackets. By tightening the archwire at various stages throughout your treatment, and using elastic bands to put pressure on the brace system, your teeth are gently guided into position.
Metal braces are the most cost-effective option available and offer fantastic results within 12 to 24 months. Patients can choose coloured elastics to brighten their braces. Fixed metal braces are among the few orthodontic treatments available on the NHS.
