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.

Gave me some advice after wisdom tooth consultationSarah, Ireland, 28 08 15

I had an infection in the soft tissue around my wisdom tooth so the dentist examined me and gave me a prescription for 2 antibiotics. He also gave me some advice as to where I needed to go from there and that I'd more than likely need the tooth removed. I have a fear of the dentist but as soon as I walked into the dentists room I felt way more at ease because of how friendly and approachable they were. I left feeling happy and knowing that I will be a lot less nervous about going back for another appointment.

rom the moment I stepped foot inside from reception to the hygienist, it was such a nice experienceLisa, Ireland, 23 09 19

It was my first time attending this dentist. In fact the first time in years after a bad experience with my last dentist. I've known Tom Boland for years as my family attend him, however, this time I was looked after by the dentist called Harry. From the moment I stepped foot inside from reception to the hygienist, it was such a nice experience. I had a huge hole in a tooth which harry said could need a root canal but he's filled it and 1 week later no pain at all. He was so professional gentle and just a lovely manor then the hygienist had the task of deep cleaning my teeth which took a while. All in all, I will be back for more treatment and would highly recommend the practice. Delighted with the service.
