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.

EstudioOral Medicina Dentária

Rua do Bom Sucesso, 372 3º, Porto, 4150148
Rating from 5 Reviews I had lost a crown on a front toothRobert, UK, 24 Jun 17

The clinic offered me an appointment that day and did a temporary fix, and a full appointment the day after for some really excellent work. Dr. Pedro is an excellent dentist and I am minded to make him my dentist. This clinic has shown me that we are far from advanced in the UK. The prices are significantly cheaper too.

Clínica Dentária D'avenida

Avenida da Republica 885, 1º Andar, Vila Nova de Gaia, 4430201
The Clínica dentária d'avenida, was founded in 1984 by António Pereira and was always based on the interconnection between innovation and technology associated to high levels of health quality. Management has always involved the most advanced sterilization techniques, the use of innovative auxiliary means of diagnosis, individual x-ray chairs, etc. In 1989 all the administrative area of the clinic was computerized: file management, clients and medical offices, planning programmes, and treatment registration, a reflection of an innovative attitude.                     In 1995, a new subsidiary was inaugurated in Matosinhos with the same concept of management and work based on the innovation and technologies available in the mother clinic in Vila Nova de Gaia.  The growth of this health unit led to the need of dividing treatments by speciality. The investment was focused on three fields: adults, children, and surgery. Now, Clínica dentária d'avenida has in its team several specialities of dental medicine. In 2001, Antonio Pereira took on the position of administrative director, and kept his clinical duties, and his son, Nuno Pereira, assumed the position of clinical director. Nuno Pereira is a post-graduate in implantology with a clinical residency of 2 years by the University of New York. The Clínica dentária d'avenida keeps up with the new technological concepts by using last generation autoclaves, ultrasound, washing and sterilizing machine,
