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 4 Reviews I'm really pleased with the results now it is overLynsey, UK, 16 Dec 16

I eventually had ceramic braces at the age of 30! After many years of being embarrassed by my teeth. I should have had it done much sooner as it was much easier and less intrusive than I thought it would be. I'm really pleased that I chose this Smilelux clinic as I couldn't have asked for a more welcoming place to come to. Saijel, Lacy and Kerrie we're always so kind and helpful and Dr Hirani was wonderful. I was always happy to come into treatment and I'm really pleased with the results now it is over. Thanks so much Smilelux team!

Orthodontist Consultation free
Removable appliance - a plastic plate that can be taken out to be cleaned. It has delicate wires and springs attached, which move the teeth using gentle pressure. Fixed appliance - Often teeth need to be guided more accurately than they can be using a removable plate. Fixed appliances are brackets and bands temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. Invisible Braces - We also offer state of the art ‘invisible braces. ’ These are tough, clear, plastic ‘positioners’ that are used to gradually straighten your teeth. Several sets of specially moulded positioners are made. Each set moves the teeth slightly from the previous position and is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set. Each set is straighter than the last and the final set will be your desired result.

I started Invisalign to straighten my teeth 12 months ago at BRDP, Burnley. At the age of 54, that wasn’t an easy decision to make and now I am nearly at the end of treatment. I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and really happy with the outcome. I wish I had this treatment sooner. It’s never too late to transform your smile. Our family have been with this dental practice since 2002. Dr. Powell and the team are very friendly and we always feel comfortable on our visits.

Rating from 1 Review Absolutely delighted with this dentist, he handled my emergency perfectlyChristopher, UK, 21 Sep 18

Another dentist aborted a root canal and sent me away. A massive pain quickly developed so I contacted this surgery and so glad that I did. I am not a good patient but they gave me an emergency appointment, put me at my ease and extracted the molar (when Gary should have been having his lunch break). Absolutely delighted with this dentist, he handled my emergency perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble and the result excellent. I strongly recommend Gary Wu and his surgery.

Rating from 3 Reviews Transformation has been amazingJan, UK, 17 Jul 15

At the age of 59 I decided to have braces. Any fears I had of having this treatment at my age were eliminated at my first appointment with Sandeep. He was honest and caring. I knew that whatever decision he took was with my interested at heart. I am now a year on and the transformation has been amazing. Sandeep is now looking at when they can be removed. I cannot praise Sandeep and his staff enough. Nothing was to much trouble. The waiting room is pleasant with a television, magazines and papers. An appointment was booked either the same day or the next day if I had any concerns. The reception staff are polite, patient and efficient. I can honestly say Confidential in Sandhurst is the best dentist I have ever had. Sandeep and his team have got this so right. Well done!

Rating from 1 Review I am very happy with the experience and the quality of the service I received.Giedrius, London, 05 Jul 16

I was really conscious about the look of my teeth, so I requested an appointment to get braces put on. I was presented with multiple options and thoroughly informed about each one before making a final decision. Both Dr. Stefan and Dr. Milisha were extremely helpful and talked me through the process. Overall, I am very happy with the experience and the quality of the service I received. I could not recommend it enough. I chose this clinic merely by accident when I did my research online on a particular set of braces. I was greeted with a smile and shown into the clinic. Doctors were very pleasant and welcoming from the very beginning which created a great atmosphere. They answered all of my questions and shared some of the relevant experiences. Overall, I am very happy with my choice and would recommend it for everyone. Ten out of ten.
