Fixed braces Battersea at Mouth Dental

Fixed braces are time-tested teeth-aligning devices. From conventional metal braces to Damon braces, we offer every choice in orthodontics. Our orthodontists carry out a thorough analysis using x-rays and scans to decide the best treatment option for you. We use modern braces with the latest mechanisms to ensure you are getting the best for your money.

Clear braces offer a more discreet solution than all metal braces. Their translucent ceramic brackets blend with the colour of your teeth. They are stain-resistant and have smooth contours for improved comfort.

Damon braces use a self-ligating system to connect archwires to brackets instead of elastic bands used in traditional braces. Instead of having brackets that tighten and adjust braces regularly, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that moves with the teeth as they realign. It makes them more comfortable and offers improved clinical performance. Self-ligating braces are better for dental hygiene as they are easier to clean than elastic ligatures.

Lingual braces offer a more incognito solution by staying hidden behind teeth. They are virtually invisible. Custom-made to fit every tooth perfectly, they provide better comfort, fit, and control. Our specialists can help fix mild to severe misalignments and malocclusions and discuss the best options for you.

Frequently asked questions

What are fixed braces?

Fixed braces consist of small brackets bonded to each tooth and joined by an archwire that runs over one or both arches of the mouth. Tightening the arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Fixed braces are not removable or movable by the patient.

What are the different types of fixed braces?

Metal fixed braces are the most well-known type. However, clear braces, Damon braces, and lingual braces are also available.

What are the dental conditions that can be corrected by fixed braces?

Fixed braces can correct underbites, overbites, open bites, cross bites, overcrowding, overjet, rotated teeth, impacted teeth, and gap teeth.

Fixed braces vs. other types of braces: What are the benefits of fixed braces?

Fixed braces are moving teeth all the time. There’s no need to remove them to eat or clean teeth. Severe cases of malocclusions require fixed braces, which need more pressure to move teeth than removable aligners.

How long do you need to wear fixed braces?

The duration of treatment depends on the nature of the malocclusion or misalignment and the treatment plans. While mild cases may only need 6-12 months. More severe cases may need 24 months.

Do you need to revisit the dentist after getting fixed braces for readjustments?

Yes, fixed braces should be adjusted by your orthodontist, typically monthly. The movement of teeth should also be reviewed and monitored to ensure the braces are shifting teeth as planned.

Signs to look out for if you need your braces readjusted

The absence of pressure on teeth means your braces are loose. Similarly, if you experience unbearable pressure, your orthodontist can readjust the braces. If the brackets are sliding or shifting, they need reattaching. Poking wires or metal pieces are signs of damage to the braces.

What are fixed braces made out of?

Fixed braces are made from metal, stainless steel, ceramic, clear plastic, or in the case of lingual braces, sometimes gold.

How do you maintain your dental health after getting fixed braces?

After orthodontic treatment, such as braces, wearing retainers is crucial to maintaining the new alignment. Your orthodontist will recommend the type of retainer you should wear. Keeping your teeth healthy and free from decay will prevent the need for extractions that can affect the beautiful alignment.

What types of food and beverages do you need to avoid?

Fizzy drinks and acidic food & drink can react with the metal components of braces. Hard, chewy, and sticky food can also damage brackets and wires. Avoid biting into apples, corn cobs, carrots, etc. You should not consume extremely hot food and drink while wearing clear braces. 

How much do fixed braces cost?

Fixed braces can start from £2,600
