bracenfix™ Process:

bracenfix™ is a revolutionary Ingrown Toenail Treatment designed to address ingrown toenails without the need for surgery or discomfort. This innovative system utilizes a hardened composite material that is cured by an LED light, effectively acting as a brace on the nail plate. By maintaining the correct shape as the nail grows from the base to the end, it reshapes the pathway for new nail growth.

Once applied, the bracenfix™ system remains in place for approximately 2-3 months. As the toenail grows, bracenfix™ moves with it, aiding in the correct positioning of the toenail. Additional bands can be applied during this period to ensure the desired outcome.

Ever wondered if your nails grow at the same speed? Our toenails grow 2-3 times slower than our fingernails! It’s very important to cut and look after toenails correctly to avoid ingrowing and infections, otherwise you’ll be waiting a while for the nail to grow out.

Can I stop ingrown toenails in my child?

It’s estimated that 50% of ingrown toenails in kids and adolescents are caused by nail cutting technique. Usually if our patients are suffering from ingrown toenails and have poor cutting technique, we observe the following:

  • Nails that curve down into the edges
  • Nails that cut deep down into the edges
  • ‘Picked’ or ripped off nails

These issues are easily preventable by always cutting the nails straight across with nail scissors.

How to correctly trim toenails

  • Trim straight across your toenails
  • Use proper nail trimming scissors or straight-edge clippers every time 
  • Manage sharp ends gently using a nail file
  • Leave just a couple of millimetres of white nail at the tips
  • Aim to trim or check your child’s toenails every month
