Metal fixed braces

NHS / Private treatment

Metal fixed appliances consist of small metal brackets attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist complete control over the tooth movements. The ties can be coloured giving you the option to customise the brace.
