Metal ‘train track’ braces, or fixed appliances, are the most common type of orthodontic brace in use to straighten the teeth. This is certainly true here at NDOrtho. Small metal brackets are bonded onto the teeth and elastic ligatures are used to fasten the wire in place which will help align the teeth. The elastic ligatures are often coloured and colours can be chosen to make your own fashion statement if you wish.
These braces are available under the NHS and if requested, for self-funded private patients.
