Orthodontic treatments are a great way of improving the cosmetic appeal of your smile. But they can also correct functional problems which, if left untreated, could lead to other problems. Fixed braces are still the most commonly used orthodontic treatment.
Stages of the treatment:
- The dental professional starts by fixing brackets on each tooth using cement
- We use self-ligating Damon brackets, which are connected by a flexible wire. Wires are changed periodically until the teeth attain the desired position, usually every 6 weeks.
Some patients feel a little pressure on their teeth in the first days following installation or adjustment.
