If you want your teeth to be accurately positioned, then fixed braces are ideal. Fixed appliances are the most commonly used braces today, because they allow accurate positioning of the teeth. The braces are securely fixed onto the teeth and cannot be removed by the patient.
There are various systems available ranging from the standard metal brackets to clear or aesthetic brackets. Fixed braces are now available with clear brackets, dramatically improving the aesthetics. Clear brackets are particularly popular with adults where aesthetics are Important.
