Therapy with fixed apparatus (fixed prosthesis)

Today it is the golden standard of modern orthodontics. It consists of braces through which the wired arch passes and actually corrects the teeth. There are several types of fixed appliances, and patients usually make them white and metal. White or aesthetic appliances make transparent or white braces, they are less noticeable, and are easier for the patients. Standard appliances are metal structures that give better results at the end.

The therapy with a fixed appliance lasts approximately 18-24 months, and the control check-ups are scheduled in 3-6 weeks.

For a good result, it is of utmost importance that the appliance and teeth are properly maintained. Healthy teeth and gums contribute to the durability and quality of the results achieved.

Upon completion of the therapy, when both the patient and the orthodontist are satisfied with the results, the fixed apparatus is removed and a retention period occurs, in which the bone is recovering from the changes, and the teeth need to be kept in the achieved position. Retention film is a silicone appliance similar to a tooth guard, worn at night and as much as possible during the day. In some cases, it is recommended to glue a very thin wire from the inside of the tooth, which prevents unwanted tooth movement. You can see the prices of fixed dentures on our website price list.
