Fixed braces

Traditional fixed braces are an effective and affordable method to straighten your teeth and achieve your dream smile. This tried-and-tested treatment is now more efficient than ever before thanks to modern technology, offered here at Scunthorpe Orthodontics.

What are fixed braces?

With fixed braces, a metal bracket is attached to the front of each tooth with an orthodontic adhesive glue. Then, thin metal archwires are threaded between the brackets and held in place by small elastic bands. This system applies gentle pressure to shape your smile.
