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.

Outstanding serviceAmy, UK, 14 08 20

I contacted this clinic in sheer desperation with my 8-year-old having issues with another clinic and a failed inhalation sedation attempt. Dr Riaz was so quick to get back to me and offer different options for my daughter to have her tooth out. Within a week we had an appointment and as my daughter is extremely anxious we opted for IV sedation. My daughter as an 8-year-old was very destressed but this did not faze Dr Riaz and his team. They spent time calming my daughter and put the TV on about her and gave her gas to calm her enough for her IV. Within 5 minutes of being sedated Dr Riaz had updated us that the tooth was out and all went well. It brought tears to my eyes over how much stress and worry they had removed from my shoulders and I truly can not thank Dr Riaz and his team enough. Outstanding service.

I am super happy with my treatment and my new RetainerNikki, UK, 05 09 16

Had some worn out/broken retainers, after searching on Google and finding super expensive repairs. I found whole tooth dental practice for a decent and affordable price. I am super happy with my treatment, was easy to find and wasn't too far a drive. Staff at receptionist were super friendly and polite as well as the dentist who did my retainers. Would definitely recommend and would visit again if I need anything else!

Thank you so much Hema and your teamCarmelina, UK, 03 06 20

I have been experiencing a problem with one of my teeth since the end of March. Hema has been extremely caring and has kept her practice open for patient advice since lockdown. She prescribed me antibiotics at the time which seemed to help but the issue is still there. She saw me this morning. I was absolutely amazed at the extensive precautions she has in place to protect her patients her employees aswell as herself. The practice although very elegant looked very sterile and clean. I felt very re-assured by the measures she has put in place. Thank you so much Hema and your team. Would highly recommend St. Perer's Studio.

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.
