Stainless Steel Fixed Braces

Stainless Steel Fixed Braces London - Elite Orthodontist

Stainless steel fixed metal braces London remain the most common type of orthodontic brace.

This is the most common type of orthodontic treatment – also commonly known as “train tracks” by younger patients! See also: Fixed Braces.

In this particular system of stainless steel fixed braces, the brackets are made of a sturdy easily-cleansable stainless steel material. Metal braces offer the greatest degree of precision in orthodontics. There are different types of fixed brace, and we offer many types in our practice at Elite Orthodontics. Modern stainless steel brackets are quite small, and they cover a relatively smaller area of each tooth, making braces more attractive than they used to be. Patients often comment on how small they look.

Stainless steel braces in London are more popular than you might assume. These braces are very practical and extremely reliable. They are specially with young people who are keen to show off their braces, and who often decorate their braces with colours! These colours can be changed at every appointment, and you can go back to having no colours whenever you wish. See also: Coloured Braces.

Stainless Steel FAQs

No. As long as you take care of your teeth during the treatment, they won’t cause any harm to your teeth. It’s especially important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine when wearing braces, as food and plaque can become stuck in the braces which could harm the health of your teeth and gums. Our specialists at our Harley Street area practice can guide you as regards the best way to maintain excellent dental hygiene while having orthodontic treatment.
Whilst you can easily avoid damage to your braces by steering away from very hard foods or certain habits, it’s not completely unheard of for a wire or a bracket to become loose or damaged. If this does happen, it’s nothing to worry about. Simply get in touch with us and we will first give you advice and then arrange to have things fixed before there is any undue discomfort.
Yes! They definitely can! Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. Many of the patients treated at Elite Orthodontics are adults. The biological processes involved in tooth movement are the same in both adults and children. The health of the teeth, gums, and supporting bone is very important to the success of orthodontic treatment in adults as well as children. Modern techniques have made orthodontic treatment more comfortable and shorter in duration, and less visible or invisible braces have made the wearing of braces much more acceptable for adults. There is no need to be embarrassed about wearing braces as we can make your orthodontic appliances inconspicuous and discreet!
