The most common orthodontic treatment system is traditional metal fixed braces. It is an excellent and affordable way to treat orthodontic problems.

Traditional fixed braces are comprised of metal brackets bonded to the front surface of the teeth with a special adhesive. These brackets are connected with a wire, which your orthodontist will adjust every few weeks to exert gentle pressure on the teeth over time, moving them into a straighter position.

Traditional metal braces can be customised with a range of coloured elastic bands which attach the wire to the bracket. Children and teenagers typically choose these elastics in their school colours or favourite sports team as a fun accessory.

The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case and typically takes approximately 18-24 months. Patients must wear a retainer after completing their treatment to keep their teeth in their proper position.
