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.

Rating from 5 Reviews The care given to me during the treatment was excellentSimon, Switzerland, 27 Apr 17

I needed to have an emergency crown fitted whilst on a trip in Portugal from Switzerland because the day after the treatment as was due to be the lead presenter at an important company event in Portugal and needed my smile! The dental surgeon and staff were excellent and were able to complete 4 appointments in one. I have to say that for me the service, reaction to my immediate need and the care given to me during the treatment was excellent. I rate the practice very highly and will not hesitate to use the clinic for further treatments during my monthly business trips to Portugal. First class service!

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,
