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.

The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeingBill, Belfast, 13 06 18

Jessica at Cavehill has looked after my teeth since 2014. I have had fillings, crowns, bridges, root canal work and implants. She is highly competent, conscientious, skilful and empathic. I trust her completely to deliver the best treatment possible, to avoid unnecessary interventions and above all to cause minimum pain - she is particularly good at anaesthesia. I have recommended her to my friends. She will discuss the options available in detail and gives excellent value for money. I originally chose Cavehill in 1999 because I live nearby and friends recommended it. It was good even before Marty McAllister took over. Since then it has developed special expertise in implants and preventative hygiene. The staff are friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients' wellbeing. When I have had a dental emergency, they have seen me within 24 hours.

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.

The procedure was completely painless and conducted calmlyPeter, UK, 10 03 20

I found the clinic to be warm and welcoming. In my consultation I was included in the process and able to share my previous experiences with procedures elsewhere and given all the options available to help me make a decision on best course treatment. Before the procedure again everything was explained clearly and my anxiety was taken into account in a calm and manner. The procedure was completely painless and conducted calmly. Aftercare was explained and I felt included in the entire experience, I felt that it was conducted in a caring and inclusive way with no pain or discomfort. I returned a couple of weeks later to have a quick follow up appointment and adjustments were made without any fuss.

Invisalign (Removable Clear Braces) from from £1600
Invisalign is a clear orthodontic system for closing gaps and straightening crooked teeth. It is a removable, clear and cosmetic alternative to traditional fixed braces, similar to Smile TRU. Invisalign uses three-dimensional modelling to generate a series of clear aligners or “clear braces”. They are often referred to by many patients as “invisible braces”. The clear removable aligners are custom made and replaced every 2 weeks. Over time, they move your teeth into a position that gives you straight teeth, worthy of a big smile.

I highly recommend themNatalia, UK, 06 03 21

In the past year and half, I had to undergo a couple of complicated procedure consisting of laser gum treatment, two implants and a bridge. I must admit that I am quite a nervous person around any medical procedures and do not deal well with pain. Dr Balachandran and his staff have been extremely attentive to all my needs making me feel safe and relaxed all the way through my very lengthy procedures. I highly recommend them.

The environment is warm, calm and welcomingChristine, UK, 11 01 21

I am a very anxious patient and can absolutely recommend Dr Mike Powell and his wonderful welcoming team. I had to have treatment today and was really afraid. I need not have been. What I thought would be an unpleasant treatment was, in fact, not as bad as I thought it would be. Mike and his Nurse were so calm, kind and reassuring and I can't praise them enough. The environment is warm, calm and welcoming and above also very Covid safe. Fears just melt away, any doubts dissolve and patients are reassured by the extremely kind and friendly receptionists waiting to greet you.
