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.

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.

Very personable and immensely competentPaul, UK, 07 10 19

As a child I did not look after my teeth, as an adult, I have now to endure many dental procedures. I have experienced many Dentists. Ballyclare Dental “Smile” Practice is notable for their approach, advice and professionalism. Their Trevor and Jennifer McKissick are very experienced and personable dentists but Pamela Lowe whilst also very personable and immensely competent has the lightest touch of all the Dentists I have experienced in fifty-odd years of dental work. I have had root canal treatment, crowns (many), an implant, tooth extraction, white fillings, fillers, tooth whitening. They offer a membership/insurance scheme & yes it is expensive but comparable to other schemes. Their scheme means if you’re having discomfort they usually see you same day/next morning.
