Fixed Orthodontics Appliances Overview
A fixed appliance brace is like your traditional style brace or “train tracks” as they are often known. They are made up of individual parts such as wires, brackets and bands which all work together to help guide teeth into a straighter position.
At the beginning of your braces treatment, the wires are quite flexible and as your teeth start reacting to the braces and your treatment progresses, they will gradually get much stiffer.
We offer two different types of fixed appliances:
- Six Month Braces
- Traditional Braces
Six month braces are a very popular choice for those who wish to achieve straighter teeth within a much shorter time period which makes it a great option for brides-to-be who want a perfect smile for those wedding photos or even for those whose lives can be quite hectic and they just don’t have the time to be wearing braces for 1+ years.
Traditional braces can take a considerable amount of time longer and move much more gradually. Depending on the severity of the case, it can take anywhere from 1-3 years for traditional braces to achieve the desired end result.
Dr. Eamon O’Reilly is a general dentist with us in Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic with a special interest in Orthodontic practices and he can advise you and guide you through your braces journey in the best way possible.
