Fixed Braces

Fixed Braces

Conventional Braces:

These are time tested devices used for full control of the teeth. They bond to the front surface of the teeth. Their advantages are that they are inexpensive, have quick treatment times, and are easier to use. On the other hand they are relatively un-aesthetic.

Clear Braces:

These are tooth-coloured brackets which are made of ceramic or composite. They can be fully aesthetic or have a metal slot and/or clip. Their advantages are that they are easy to use, aesthetic, adhere very well, but on the other hand due to increased friction between wires and the slots they are marginally slower to work. The wires used can be aesthetic or white, Teflon-coated wires can be used. These types of brackets do stain with regards to curries, tea, and red wine. These brackets are also bulkier as they need to compensate for not having metal grade strength.

Lingual Braces:

These are state-of-the-art brackets from recent developments in orthodontics. They are bonded behind the teeth and are invisible to the public. They have different and difficult mechanical techniques; the patient has to be able to open wide for this procedure to be done. They are completely aesthetic and more sensitive to mechanical movements. They do affect speech and are more uncomfortable in the early stages.

Functional Appliances:

These are fixed or removable appliances which are used to correct malocclusions by using facial musculature causing dental (and slight skeletal) change. These are exclusively for children between 9-14 years old. The patients usually have increased or reduced overjet. Over jets are corrected at a rate of 1mm per month on average. They are usually used for a period of 6-9 months with or without fixed appliances (braces).

Retainers:

At the end of all orthodontic treatment, there is a need for retaining the result. This is usually considered to be permanent but will be considered per patient. Retainers are used to do this and would be placed as soon as the treatment is over. Two types are present; these include fixed retainers or removable retainers. Removable retainers are basically a clear plastic mould of the teeth and the fixed retainers are a small thin wire adhered behind the teeth. Retention for perfection is permanent.

I have been coming here for years and have always had excellent service and attention. I highly recommend them.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your feedback!
I had a great experience with Dr. Hygino, who restored my broken tooth. The procedure was quick, painless, and the result was outstanding! I'm very happy with my new tooth.
Dr Debora did an awesome job with my braces. She's really good at what she does and she's also really nice. My smile looks amazing now, thanks to her. If you need braces, I totally recommend Dr Debora
I had an accident and chipped two of my front teeth. Dr. Gino saw me on the same day and repaired my teeth for me. He did such an amazing job. I can't even tell the difference is so perfect. All my friends were impressed. Thank you so much Dr. Gino and Smilepod for being able to treat me on the same day of my accident and bringing it back my smile. Top class service. I couldn't recommend you guys more!!
SO MUCH better than my usual NHS service. I chose smile pod because they were close to my office and had lots of appointments available outside my work hours. I am so glad I tried them as my teeth look amazing! Jasmin was so relaxing and friendly. Multiple tools used to clean my teeth with so much attention to the detail, my teeth look and feel amazing and I can’t stop smiling for real! ‘Classic clean’ - Natasja (I’ll be back real soon) xx

Easy to book.Had an appointment with Magatha and she was very gentle and careful, pain free cleaning done very well.
Roshni is very friendly and made the whole experience very positive!
The entire team at Smilepod Moorgate is very professional and friendly. Seven years ago, I turned to Carine Borges to improve the aesthetics of my teeth, which she did excellently with a whitening treatment and a series of high-quality and durable composite bondings. Recently, I returned for a check-up, and only one of the bondings had to be redone, while the others are still doing great. I highly recommend Carine for both her professionalism and her human qualities.
Inga not only delivers first class teeth cleaning she has a warm, reassuring manner which really puts you at ease. Very skilled but gentle in her use of the instruments. I've tried 3 other Smilepods in London and Inga is the best. Top job.

Dr Anju was extremely insightful and considerate throughout the treatment. I felt very well informed and looked after and can highly recommend her as a top periodontist. The whole team and experience has been excellent.
I had a great hygienist experience with Roshni Goel. She was very gentle, professional and attentive. She was constantly checking if I was good through the session and she even had kindly gave me a call to check if I was good after the session. Highly recommended.
