Fixed braces are the gold standard of treatment; all other systems are compared to what a fixed brace can achieve. We use clear Radiance braces alongside Sentalloy wires- for us the best of the best in fixed brace technology.
There are obvious downsides to fixed braces but in our opinion they provide a level of control that no other system quite manages (although Invisalign is getting better and better). This control allows us to move teeth predictably and tweak the position of teeth as we progress through treatment. This is particularly useful in complex cases or in situations where we are carrying out joint brace/smile enhancement work.

You can also contact us to arrange a call back to book a consultation.
