What Are My Fixed Braces Options in Loughborough?

While you may have heard of more modern teeth straightening treatments like Invisalign’s removable aligners, fixed braces are still a great option for patients. Find out more about them, their benefits, and what treatment involves in today’s blog post, brought to you by our Loughborough experts.

What fixed braces options are there?

There are clear braces that involve see-through brackets and tooth-coloured wires; lingual braces, which attach to the backs of the teeth; and even certain types of brace that only target your ‘social six’ teeth, that is those that are most visible when you smile.

Why have braces?

First of all, let’s address the rationale behind straightening your smile in the first place. Did you know that there’s no such thing as the ‘perfect smile’? That’s because we all have slight natural misalignments in our smile and, incredibly, our teeth do shift over time – especially if any are lost or extracted.  In fact, many of us suffer from bite problems and don’t even know it. An overbite is one of the most common, but other types – underbite, crossbite, open bite – can also occur. Thankfully, our fixed braces options offered at our Loughborough dental practice can treat all of these concerns and could improve your oral health.

Which brace should I choose?

It’s always helpful to talk through your options with a qualified orthodontist. That’s because what may suit one patient may not necessarily be the right choice for your smile. There are lots of things our patients take into account when making decisions, too. Common questions we hear in Loughborough include:

Our Loughborough specialists are here to guide you through the process and ensure you make a fully informed decision about your dental treatment.

What are the advantages of fixed braces?

Fixed braces can be tricky to clean and do involve regular dental trips, however, they can be a cheaper alternative than other treatments, such as Invisalign, and benefit from a long history in the world of orthodontics. They can also be relatively discreet, compared to past procedures. Finally, fixed braces are extremely reliable.

Are fixed braces worth the investment?

Absolutely – you can’t put a price on a healthy, happy smile. Start the journey to yours today by getting in touch with our highly-qualified Loughborough orthodontists.
