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.

Couldn't be happier with my smile now it’s perfectShauna, Ireland, 25 02 21

Had my braces on for just over 2 and a half years! Couldn't be happier with my smile now it’s perfect! My treatment was always very efficient and they worked around my schedule as I was abroad for part of my treatment. They always made time to see me if needed and even during the pandemic they were very efficient and professional. They always followed up on any enquiries and were very accessible to me as a client. I chose this clinic because it was recommended by most people I know because of the results they all got from their treatments. The price was very good in comparison to some other places I had priced, and they told me exactly what to expect from the first day, and there were no hidden elements. They were also very flexible with my personal payment schedule. Would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who wants the perfect results.

I’m happy with the end resultAnonymous, Ireland, 28 09 18

I’d researched a few clinics before I chose this one for ceramic braces. In general, I think braces are overpriced, but I’m happy with the end result. They have really nice staff here. I did have pain because my teeth felt loose for a few days afterwards. I wasn’t given any medication but took the regular pain meds I’d use for a headache.
