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.

He carried out the necessary treatment very effectively and efficientlyDavid, Portugal, 04 06 22

I had been in a lot of discomfort from a back tooth while on holiday. I found the Clinic Price on a search. I was given an appointment on a Saturday morning. Dr Bettencourt was extremely friendly and very competent. I should be able to judge as I'm a Dentist!! He carried out the necessary treatment very effectively and efficiently. If the toothache is spoiling your holiday, ring Dr Bettencourt!!

I never expected so much gentleness, availability and humanity for an unimaginable priceClaudia, Italy, 29 08 23

Unfortunately, I arrived at Portimão with a bad toothache. Then I went to Smile up for a visit and found out how lucky I was. Dr. Martins visited me and told me how to proceed with the care of the tooth. I never expected so much gentleness, availability and humanity for an unimaginable price. If I stayed longer, I would have done some implants with Dr. Martins and his staff. Once again a big thank you!! Claudia

The treatment was the perfect repair while in a pinch on holiday. It was a Friday evening and I knew that if I didn't find something then, I would be stuck over the weekend in pain.

The staff are absolutely excellent in their treatment and careEd, Portugal, 21 02 20

Fantastic experience. The staff are absolutely excellent in their treatment and care. Dr. John McKean was wonderful in his explanation and treatment of my emergency. He saw me immediately with my dental emergency and a number of times afterwards due to the oddity of my case. Cannot say enough about this clinic doctors and staff. And, since we winter here, I will definitely have them do my routine care as well. Thanks, guys.

The team are all lovely and fluent in EnglishPatricia, Ireland, 19 12 22

I had first consultation a week ago and the team are all lovely and fluent in English also which was a great help as I explained my phobia of dentists Had examination and xray done and a plan was made for follow up appointment for treatment under sedation with gas. Unfortunately for everyone on the day the sedation system just wouldn't work.The doctor tried for almost an hour to get it working but to no avail. They were left with no choice but to call a technician and to send me home. The dentist, nurses, doctor and receptionist were all so apologetic I felt bad for them as they had moved some appointments to fit me in for a 3-hour session. I will return when the system is fixed, hopefully soon. But with Christmas looming and holidays to be taken it may be next year.
