Caring for you Fixed Brace
This video gives you information on wearing fixed braces and how to care for them including advice on cleaning and what you should do if your fixed brace gets damaged.
Fixed braces are the most common type of orthodontic appliance. Attachments called brackets are bonded to the surface of the tooth and linked by wires to create pressure that moves the teeth to the desired positions. Fixed braces are not removable until the end of the treatment. The wires are changed to improve control as the teeth move towards the correct position.
