One of the orthodontic treatments that Glowry Cosmetic Clinic offers are fixed braces. These are braces that are fixed to the teeth and cannot be removed, commonly referred to as “Train Tracks”.
They are used when treating both children and adults who have spaced or crowded teeth that require correction.
They can either be metal or ceramic and patients have the choice coloured wires and elastics to create that “funky” look.
The brackets are attached to the teeth with a removable adhesive and then wires are passed through them to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Treatment normally takes between 12-18 months.
Retainers are required at the end of treatment and are worn continuously for 3 months and nightly thereafter.
