Fixed braces in Abingdon

Our practice offers many orthodontic options, including metal fixed braces - more commonly known as 'train-tracks.'

With ceramic braces in Abingdon, you will have all the benefits of having fixed braces but with something a little more subtle.

What are fixed braces?

Metal or “train-track” braces are the most common type of braces used worldwide and for good reason, they work brilliantly. Surprisingly, these can often work faster and more efficiently than some of the less visible braces on the market and are therefore popular with both NHS and private patients.

Small metallic squares or brackets are carefully glued to the teeth and clever high technology wires are held in position by miniature elastics, which can be coloured if desired. All our orthodontic nurses are experts in recommending fun colour schemes!

    What is the treatment?

    Your dentist will start with an initial consultation taking x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth. From here you will receive a tailored treatment plan explaining your treatment options and costs. 

    Every six to eight weeks subsequent visits are required, allowing adjustments to be made, getting you one step closer to your dream smile. After this stage is completed you will then have removable retainers to maintain your new smile.

    The time it takes for your braces to work their magic is dependent on the severity of your case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need braces on for longer.

        Why are ceramic braces for you?

        Ceramic braces differ from traditional metal fixed braces by replacing the visible metal bracket with a clear ceramic alternative, meaning that they will be less visible, yet retain all the precision of a traditional fixed metal brace. Our clinical team are highly experienced specialists in all forms of teeth straightening and have been fitting clear brace solutions for years. They come with the accessibility and precision that you would receive with a traditional fixed brace, with a subtle exterior.

          Key points 

          • Your ceramic braces will be fixed to your teeth and work to achieve your treatment goals all the time. The clear ceramic brackets and metal wires gradually align your teeth to reveal your new smile.
          • For more straightforward cases, your treatment could be finished in just a few months, but however long your journey takes, we guarantee the results are worth the wait.
          • Because of the technical similarities to metal braces, ceramic braces come with a very high success rate and with proper use of retainers, your results will last the test of time.
