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 welcomed me with a warm smileNozipho, South Africa, 17 07 20

I had 6 crowns and a root canal treatment done which was an experience I’ve dreaded but also needed because I didn’t like how my teeth looked but today I’m happy with the end result, I have to say, Dr Ismail(The senior Dr) has to be one of the best Dental Dr’s I’ve come across, not only because of his experience and skills but how he interacts with his patients and makes you feel calm even with the drilling sound in the background. He listens to what your expectations are for your teeth and makes adjustments accordingly whilst paying attention to finer details of your teeth structure. I had quite a long journey with my treatment but every time, he welcomed me with a warm smile. I would absolutely recommend the practice, the prices are reasonable, the practice is clean and the Dr’s, as well as the staff, are friendly. Definitely value for money.

I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne isLelethu, South Africa, 01 12 16

I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne is. I went to him for just a consultation and in just 2 days I had already started treatment. I was a bit shy and embarrassed because the work that needed to be done on my teeth was extensive but both him and his team made me feel so calm and comfortable. I am so happy I went to him, he is very knowledgeable and gave me the most information than I ever got on my teeth. Most importantly he is kind. I would recommend him to anyone.

All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 08 18

I made an appointment for dentures at Long Beach. I’m about halfway through the process now and it’ll be another four months before everything’s complete. I’m not sure if I got a fair price for the dentures. I didn’t shop around before choosing this clinic. I went with them because it was conveniently located. There was considerable pain involved because we extracted 10 teeth at once. I was given pain medication and had follow-up visits afterwards. My dentist explained everything in detail. As we went along, she told me what she was doing and also why she was doing it. All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decision. Overall, I was treated quite well. Everyone is so friendly. The clinic is also quite nice.
