How they work

Stainless Steel braces are the most popular braces worn by children. They are worn on the front surface of your teeth, are easy to fit and comfortable to wear.

Many adults still have painful memories of the big clunky braces from the past. Luckily, times have changed, and so have metal braces. Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before with low profiles and strong adhesives.

The children love them as they can have coloured elastics to tie in the arch wires. These metal braces are fashionable and fun and make orthodontic treatment less of a chore for the young!

How are they fitted?

  • Each individual bracket is placed directly onto the tooth
  • The cement is then set by an ultra-violet light
  • The initial wire is a soft and flexible nickel titanium wire and is tied to the brackets with coloured elastics
