Our orthodontists at Orthostyle Vancouver offer patients traditional-style braces to straighten teeth, close gaps between teeth, and improve overall oral function.
Orthostyle Vancouver offers braces orthodontic treatment.
Fixed braces are the traditional orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth. Braces are a combination of brackets and wires that shift your teeth through constant, gentle pressure on your teeth.
Brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth semi-permanently, for either a portion or the entire duration of your orthodontic treatment.
Traditional fixed braces have improved in their function and size and can be made of metal or tooth-colored porcelain.
Porcelain brackets offer an aesthetic advantage in addition to being a hypo-allergenic, nickel-free option. Wires are attached to the bracket through either a locking mechanism or elastics. Elastic ties can be coloured or clear, to match to your personality or preference.
Treatment progress is monitored in regular intervals, typically every 4-6 weeks. At those appointments, brackets and wires are often adjusted to continue shifting your teeth into the correct position.
