Fixed Appliances


Fixed appliances provide very accurate tooth movement and therefore achieve optimal results. Sometimes referred to as “train tracks” they consist of a series of small brackets which are attached to the surface of the teeth and are connected by a wire which is used to facilitate tooth movement. A fixed appliance as the name suggests is fixed to the teeth and can only be removed by your orthodontist. At Lisburn Orthodontics you can be assured that we tailor treatment specifically to suit each individual's requirements. 

You Must: 

  • Clean your teeth thoroughly after every meal, we strongly advise that you use a fluoride mouthwash daily. 
  • NOT eat sweets of any kind or drink fizzy drinks as they can cause permanent damage.
  • Let our receptionist team know immediately if a bracket becomes loose, the wire breaks or any part, however small is broken.
