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.

Offers so many tips and tricks in how to look after your teeth properlyKlarissa, UK, 10 01 16

I went to the Mayo Dental & Implant Clinic on Christmas eve with an abscess. I am the kind of person who is really frightened of dentists due to many negative and painful experiences. I will avoid going until I'm in extreme pain. I have to say that after visiting Dr Shane Curran my whole perspective has changed!! The first thing that really surprised me was that once I was injected with the local anaesthetic, Shane gave it at least fives minutes before doing any work, thus giving the anaesthetic a chance to work. He talked me through the procedure as it was being done, and described the different sensations that I would experience such as a "grinding" or a "dull vibration". Knowing exactly what was happening gave me peace of mind to the point where I could barely believe it myself that I was completely calm! He also explains to you what needs to be done in a clear and detailed manner. there is no confusion and he,s a genuinely friendly man.Shane has a wealth of experience and knowledge under his dentistry belt to a point where he makes it look easy! He also offers so many tips and tricks in how to look after your teeth properly. Many of which I had never been told before! It is an absolute pleasure to have work done at the clinic. I had such a positive experience here that I have since gone back for root canal treatment and an extraction. Every time I walk into the clinic I'm not phased at all. Not even by the sharp and pointy looking instruments! I know it sounds odd, but I actually feel great every time I leave as well. Its a great sense of relief to know a true professional has taken care of your teeth. I am planning to have more work done (just a few fillings). I live in the UK and I actually fly over every time for an appointment because I have never experienced dentistry to this calibre. Trust me its completely 110% worth it. All of the staff are so friendly as well which makes the whole experience so much nicer. I highly recommend that you give this place a go! You have nothing to lose! except a tooth or two, but I promise you'll be okay with that!
