The service process

Metal colour or white/translucent ceramic attachments are fixed to the surface of the teeth using a plastic medium. Rings installed around the tooth can be used for molars or extensively repaired teeth. An arch wire is fixed to the attachments and the rings. Teeth can either be moved by means of the arch wire or the teeth may travel along the arch wire by means of rubber bands or springs.

At this point in the treatment, the patient has an average of one orthodontic appointment per month to monitor the progress of the treatment and activate the equipment that is positioning the teeth.

A patient wearing fixed braces is required to look after their teeth regularly and efficiently at home. If necessary, dental coating can be removed by a dentist or dental hygienist
