Fixed Braces

Home > Fixed Braces

Traditional fixed braces for guaranteed results -

Have you heard about our ‘Straighter Smile Programme’?

‘Fixed braces’ is the term used for traditional orthodontics and these are probably the most commonly used type of braces. Often referred to as “fixed appliances” or “train tracks” they are brackets fixed to each tooth with a thin wire running through them.

Despite of recent innovations in orthodontics these traditional braces are still widely used due to their versatility, exacting precision and proven results time and time again.

At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre we offer a comprehensive FREE Straighter Smile consultation alongside our ‘Straighter Smile Programme’ to include:

Free ‘Straighter Smile consultation’
Brace or straightening system of your choice (dependant on results of consultation)
Cosmetic reshaping of teeth (if required)
Retainers (designed to hold teeth in place permanently)
Free Teeth Whitening for a beautifully natural final result

Fixed braces work by gradually moving teeth into the desired position during a period of anywhere between 12-24 months and can be used to treat many common orthodontic problems, including:

Issues with your bite (occlusion, the way your teeth meet and move across each other)
Closing gaps and treating missing teeth
Correction of teeth that are rotated or protrusive
Teeth which are crooked due to overcrowding.
Correction of overbites (where the upper front teeth close too far forward of the lower front teeth). Or under-bites which are the opposite problem (where the lower front teeth are biting too far forward in front of the upper front teeth)

Many patients at Loughborough Dental wear fixed braces with confidence as they are rapidly becoming more socially acceptable

0% finance for straighter smiles!

At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre we offer all patients access to our 0% finance facility, meaning patients have choice and flexibility when it comes to financing their dental needs. Bringing you closer to a beautiful smile that is more affordable than you may think

AcceleDent - is a modern day orthodontic device that can be used alongside wearing your braces to help speed up the overall straightening process. It is a small device worn for around 20 minutes a day. It uses short pulse technology to gently vibrate the teeth. The device is extremely comfortable and suitable for those patients looking for a quick end to crooked teeth.

Dany Coated Archwire – For patients who have chosen tooth coloured wires for their fixed orthodontics, a common problem can be that the wires holding their brackets together can become discoloured when eating highly coloured foods. The Dany Coated Archwire has a special coating on the arch wire that stops the discoloration happening. This is a great option for patients who lead busy social lives and is very simple to fix in place.

At your Straighter Smile consultation, we will:

Carry out a thorough assessment of your entire mouth. This is to make sure your teeth and gums are in a healthy position to wear braces
We may take x-rays, again to ensure the foundations of your teeth are healthy and also to assess angles of tooth roots
We will probably take a ‘full-mouth’ OPG x-ray, commonly used by Dentists with a special interest in orthodontics to assess teeth alignment and development
Take digital photos of your teeth, face, and facial form to allow us to assess the severity of the misalignment
Talk to you about your lifestyle needs to ensure that we prescribe the very best straightening solution for you.

We want to learn all about you, in particular your lifestyle. This is particularly important in adults when considering teeth straightening for cosmetics reasons.

What is your profession?
Do you play contact sports?
Do you play a musical instrument?
Do you have a special occasion or wedding on the horizon?
Are you nervous or suffer from a gag reflex?

All of these factors, in combination with your dental assessment, will be considered so that together, we can choose the very best straightening system for you.
