Fixed braces (multi-band technique) remain fixed for the duration of active treatment in the mouth. Experience has shown that the active treatment lasts 12 to 24 months. The fixed braces are made before all of brackets that are glued with a special dental adhesive to the teeth. In the brackets there is a small slit (slot) into which a wire (treatment sheet) is inserted. This wire extends around the entire dental arch and is bent behind the last teeth. The slot bracket receives the information where the teeth need to move.
When comparing brackets and treatment sheets, there is a large difference in quality.
We are heavily involved in the development of new materials and tools. So we can always offer our patients the best possible care to correct misaligned teeth gently and effectively. A successful development of our world is the “Biostarter”, a special treatment arc enabling a particularly gentle start to the treatment.
