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.

I've never been so at ease with a dentist beforeCatherine, South Africa, 25 02 21

Dr Chodree is AMAZING! I was so sceptical as most people will agree, dentist appointments are something that I can live without. I'm nearly 50 now and Dr Chodree is fixing my skew teeth. I've never been so at ease with a dentist before. She even pulled a milk tooth that I still had...without me even knowing that she had done it. It was that part of the appointment that I was dreading! The braces are comfy and I can honestly say that I'm not even nervous about my next appointment with her. Love, love, love her stuff!

His gentleness, compassion and understanding made the process a whole lot easierShaheda, South Africa, 13 10 17

Being afraid of going to a dentist, 15 years later after my last visit to a dentist, I realized I needed to have my teeth seen to. I was really glad that a friend had recommended Dr. Reddy. I would still prefer not going to a dentist but Dr. Reddy's gentleness, compassion and understanding made the process a whole lot easier which I'm grateful for. The clinic is pleasant and the staff are friendly and very accommodating!
