What are braces?

Braces are dental devices used to align teeth correctly so that patients get beautiful smiles, comfortable bites and clear speech. The dental speciality that covers braces is called orthodontics.

What types of braces are available?

Braces are structural or cosmetic. Structural braces are fitted for children while cosmetic braces are placed for adults and adolescents. Braces may be fixed or removable. Structural or traditional braces are made of stainless steel. Cosmetic braces are made of clear ceramic material or clear plastic. Some braces are self-ligating, that is, they use a slide mechanism rather than elastic bands to connect to the dental archwire. Lingual braces are metal braces placed on the inner surface of teeth. This type of brace is not visible and are preferred by patients requiring cosmetic braces.

How long do you have to wear braces for?

The length of orthodontic treatment depends on the needs and orthodontic problems of each individual patient. Treatments for adults may take a longer time. On average, patients need to wear braces for about 2 years and then they need to wear a retainer to maintain the corrected position of teeth. For some adults treatment may take about 3 years.

How are braces installed on teeth?

For fixed braces, the orthodontist dries the teeth and places glue or bonding cement on the braces. The braces are placed on teeth and a UV light is shone on them to cure the glue or cement. For removable braces, an impression of the teeth is taken and a technician makes the removable brace consisting of a plastic plate and wires. The brace is then fitted on teeth.

How do braces work on teeth?

Braces exert a steady pressure on teeth. The pressure is periodically adjusted as needed by the orthodontist. Eventually the pressure exerted by braces corrects the alignment of teeth.

Do braces hurt?

Braces are uncomfortable when first placed on teeth. Patients experience soreness and need to get used to the pressure exerted on the teeth by braces. Patients normally get used to braces within a month.

Prof. Dr. Rowan Vilar - Dental Implants and Venners Specialist

Rua Visconde de Pirajá, 303, Sala 709, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, 22410001

He not only explained what was needed but also why it was importantDr., US, 19 08 20

I encountered Dr Rowan Vilar because of a recommendation from a trusted friend. And although both the global pandemic and the impact that had on my very local wallet, prevented me from experiencing treatment under his care ... please allow me a moment to express why he would have been my first choice. I’ve been suffering for about a decade with poor dental health, so much so that the dental professionals in the Atlanta area would not perform regularly scheduled maintenance cleanings, for fear of a malpractice suit. I don’t have dental insurance and it has taken years for me to save the money needed to address my oral health. I’ve searched several destinations abroad and even though Dr. Vilar’s wasn’t the least expensive, his review of my current health status and plan to restore me to good health was and remains BY Far, the most comprehensive, the easiest to understand, the most thought out, the most focused on both the physical and mental aspects of oral health, the most attuned to my specific satisfaction and the most considerate of my specific circumstances, that stood as a challenge for me, on the road to alleviating my dental pain and improving my oral health. Here’s how. I contacted his office on a weekend and received a return call before the weekend had ended. We shared 2 or 3 conversations at length, regarding my current status. In those conversations, we covered everything from the problems I was experiencing, to how I felt about appearance to what had prevented me from addressing the issues until now. After gathering the information, he expressed a need for X-Rays, Pictures and I also had a topographical CD available. I sent it all to him and we scheduled a follow-up ZOOM call for a few days later. I am NOT the most tech-savvy senior citizen in the world and Dr. Vilar was very patient with and helpful to me as I struggled via WhatsApp and ZOOM to connect ... but finally, when I did ... it was So Very Worth My While! Dr. Vilar had prepared a presentation using my photos and that of successful projects he’d previously completed, to detail for me exactly what needed to be done and what I could expect as a finished product. He informed me of the extractions that were needed, those teeth he’d try to save and why ... as well as, the orthodontics and implants that were required to best restore my health. He not only explained what was needed but also why it was important. He addressed the timeline and commitments and was prepared to assist me with finding accommodations during my stay. His English is flawless, pertinent because my Portuguese is non-existent! And, his communication style is very thorough. We’ve interacted for about a month and a half, with him checking in on my progress approximately every two weeks after our initial Zoom consultation before I realized that even though his fees were reasonable, less than half of what I was quoted in the US., and despite the fact that his proposed solution was by far the best. I simply couldn’t afford the best! That said if I could have I most certainly would have. After having searched for nearly a decade and about a dozen countries in both Europe and south of the US. border, Dr. Vilar’s practise appears to be among the very best on the planet!
