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.

Overall a very reassuring experienceStewart, UK, 06 09 20

It was with some nervousness that I visited St Peter's Studio Dental Clinic recently, for the first time since COVID lockdown. I needn't have worried. The team at St Peter's Studio takes the safety of their patients very seriously. Lots of hand sanitiser available, plastic screens in reception, and full PPE is worn during the treatment when of course social distancing is impossible. Overall a very reassuring experience. Thanks to Hema and the team.

Now I am confident when I smileJulie, UK, 17 08 18

I have just completed my implant treatment by Dr Antonio Peluso. I am a 40-year-old woman who had 2 milk teeth removed, replaced with dental implants and crowns. The treatment I received was excellent, Dr Peluso is very professional and I felt very reassured through the whole experience. I was a very nervous patient as I lack confidence when I smile. Now I am confident when I smile. I would like to continue being Dr Peluso patient as his work is outstanding and he is a caring Doctor who wants what is best for his patients. Everyone at Kimbolton Dental Practice is a woman. The surgery is lovely and modern with a good atmosphere.
