Fixed braces have been a popular straightening teeth solution for decades because of their effective and predictable results. Whilst they are suitable for treating simple cases, for some complex orthodontic problems there’s still no competition for traditional fixed braces.
With a fixed solution, our teeth straightening dentist, our dentist will carefully bond brackets to your teeth, before joining them together with a wire which gradually aligns your teeth into a straighter position. You’ll need to see our dentist every 6 to 8 weeks to change your wire and check on progress.
Treatment times vary depending on your individual alignment needs. For simple cases this could be just a few months, but for more complex movements, it usually takes between 12 months and two years to achieve your beautiful new smile. our dentist will give you an idea of how long your teeth straightening treatment may take during your initial consultation.
Bold or discreet… your fixed braces options:
Metal braces and wires
The classic, most recognisable brace. Following recent advances in technology, our fixed metal braces at Sturminster Dental Care now use low profile brackets and wires for added comfort.
Often referred to as ceramic braces, tooth coloured braces or invisible braces, our clear braces at Sturminster Dental Care use clear brackets and tooth coloured wires for added discretion. They get the same great results as conventional metal braces – but they’re much harder to spot.
3 simple steps to a beautifully aligned smile:
- Consultation and planning
After an initial consultation our dentist will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will take precise measurements to make your personal brackets and wires.
Once your brackets and wires are ready, our dentist will fit them ensuring they are comfortable, so you can begin your straightening journey.
You’ll need to return to see our dentist every 6 to 8 weeks to check on your progress and change your wire, to slowly guide your teeth into position.
- Retaining your new smile
Once your new smile is achieved, you’ll need to wear a retainer to ensure your teeth remain beautifully aligned. Retainers can either be removable clear trays, similar to a mouth guard, or a fixed retainer which are discreetly attached to the back of the teeth for continual support.

I have been going to Sturminster Dental Care for years , it’s amazing. Always get a warm welcome and Ian & Helen are Brilliant looking after my teeth . Wouldn’t go anywhere else and recommend them highly
Absolutely first class dental care from an extremely courteous and professional team. A trip to the dentist isn’t exactly everyone’s ideal place to visit, but all the staff here will make you feel totally at ease, and for me, have completely taken the fear factor away from the occasion. I’ve visited a few dental surgeries over the years, and this is the best by quite some distance. Top class service from a top class team. Thank you!
I have not relaxed in a dental chair for years . I was always apprehensive and anxious. Brian has a great bed side manner and for the first time in years I relaxed . It was almost pleasant ! Thank you for ‘putting me back together again’ Tim

I don't think I have ever had such a comfortable and friendly dental experience. Ian took the time to explain all my options and treatments and made me feel fairly optimistic about the outcome. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful
It was great to be fitted in so quickly, as I had indicated that I was in pain, and the receptionist worked hard to find a slot for me. Overall, an efficient service, with friendly, accommodating staff. The dentist worked quickly to identify the problem and begin treatment.
Always time to talk 'teeth' and never feeling rushed
Excellent service - friendly team
