Toenail Bracing 

Toenail Bracing for Deformed, Involuted or Ingrowing Toenails 

 

Toenail bracing is a painless procedure that requires no anaesthetic, no recovery period, and eliminates the risk of an ingrown toenail infection.  

Toe Nail Bracing is an alternative solution for patients who may not be suited for ingrown toenail surgery due to any of the following issues: needle phobia, diabetes, pregnant or breast feeding, age, vascular disease etc.

Toenail Bracing is a process in which a titanium wire and hardened composite material is applied directly to the nailbed, to lift the sides of the nail and cured with an LED light. This process ensures that the nail remains in the correct shape as it grows from the base of the nail to the end, thus reshaping the pathway for the new nail growth.

The entire Toenail Bracing process will take about 8-13 months with the titanium wire being reapplied every 8-12 weeks (depending on the natural growth rate of your nail).  This is a long-term commitment.  The titanium toenail brace is designed to allow for your natural toenail to regrow in the correct position.

As previously stated, the follow up procedures are usually every 8-12 weeks (depending on growth of your nails). The existing titanium wire is removed and a new one is applied further down the nailbed to continue to encourage the correct growth pattern. 

Upon completion, the composite is removed, and the nail continues to grow naturally.
