One of the orthodontic treatments Wellington Cosmetic Clinic offers are fixed braces. These are braces that are fixed to the teeth and cannot be removed.
They are used when treating both children and adults who have spaced or crowded teeth that require correction.
They can either be metal and patients have the choice of coloured elastics or ceramic (tooth coloured) for a more aesthetic appearance.
A fixed brace is made up of several components. Brackets or bands are adhesively attached to the teeth. Special wires then allow the teeth to be moved precisely in many directions.
