Classic braces

Are you thinking of having braces? Then you’ve come to the right place. At The Forum Orthodontics, we’re your home away from home when it comes to looking after your teeth. Our purpose-built clinic has been designed to give you the very best treatment results – and you’ll get them with classic braces.

What are classic braces?

Classic braces, which most people know as traditional metal braces, are one of the most effective ways of straightening your teeth. They are also one of the most affordable. Used by orthodontists for decades, technology within the industry has continued to enhance classic braces which is why we offer them as a treatment option to our patients. They’re one of the best appliances around.

How do classic braces work?

Classic braces use a system of metal brackets, archwires and elastic bands to realign your teeth for a more even smile. The small metal brackets are fitted to the front surface of your teeth with an orthodontic adhesive glue. The thin metal archwires then connect these brackets and the elastic bands apply gentle pressure to your teeth. This combination of components and gentle force slowly move your teeth into a straighter position.

Who are classic braces for?

Classic braces are for anyone as they are effective in treating major and minor orthodontic problems. They are especially popular with younger children who can choose coloured bands to customise their classic braces. Whoever said having orthodontic treatment isn’t fun wasn’t wearing classic braces!

How to care for classic braces

Keeping your teeth clean while having orthodontic treatment is incredibly important, and it’s easier than you think. Even with braces you can still brush and floss your teeth – it just requires a little more time and attention. If you have been fitted with classic braces, The Forum Orthodontics team will show you how to keep them clean to avoid lasting problems with your teeth and gums. The healthier your teeth are, the more effective your treatment will be.

3 benefits of classic braces

  • They work – classic braces are a tried and true method of successful orthodontic treatment.
  • They’re comfortable to wear – developments in orthodontic technology mean braces are more comfortable to wear, so won’t cause irritation to your tongue or the inside of your cheeks.
  • They’re great value for money – classic braces are an extremely cost-effective method of orthodontic treatment. You get a real return on your investment and a smile is certainly something worth investing in.
