Fixed Braces in Isle of Man

Available at our Private practice on Ridgeway Street Douglas

Braces Treatment

What are Fixed Braces?

Fixed appliances are also known as ‘train tracks’ are small metal brackets that are individually glued to the surface of the teeth and linked together with wires. The wires are attached using coloured or non coloured elastics.

They can be worn by any age group and are available as NHS or Private treatment.

What's involved in the treatment? 

Your Isle of Man dentist will start with an initial consultation taking x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth. From here you will receive a tailored treatment plan explaining your treatment options and costs. 

Every 6 - 8 weeks subsequent visits are required, allowing adjustments to be made, getting you one step closer to your dream smile. After this stage is completed you will then have removable retainers to maintain your new smile. 

 The time is takes for your braces to work their magic is dependent on the severity of your case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need braces on for longer.

Orthodontics Fixed Braces
Orthodontics Eating And Drinking

Will I be able to eat and drink as normal?

To avoid any damage to your teeth or braces, you'll need to steer clear of the following during your treatment:

  • Sugary snacks and drinks between meals
  • Anything particularly sticky, hard or chewy
  • Fizzy drinks and large quantities of fruit juice

Will I be able to play contact sports? 

Absolutely, but you'll need to wear a mouth guard. We can custom-make you a mouthguard to wear over your braces. To find out more speak to one of the Station House Dental & Implant Clinic dentists.

Will I be able to play a musical instrument?

Fixed braces can make it trickier to play wind or brass instruments. Most patients quickly adapt, but you should discuss this with your orthodontists. They might recommend a removable brace, which can be taken out for performances.
