Standard braces

Orthodontic Braces- visible braces

Standard metal braces are the most reliable and popular choice of visible fixed braces. There are many different brands of fixed braces and we only chose Japanese or American brackets for their high quality and precision. We combine our standard braces with Suresmile custom wires for the fastest and most precise treatment.  With these great technologies we expect treatment time to the highest standard within 9 to 12 months in most cases- also have a look at our strategies to speed up treatment.


Standard metal braces come in lots of different forms and commonest and most versatile design uses a simple horizontal slot cut into the front surface for the wire to lie inside. The wire can be held in using a silicone elastics, a piece of soft wire or a sliding door. The Damon bracket shown opposite is the berst known self-ligating bracket
