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.

Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entailRebecca, UK, 13 03 18

A friend of mine recommended this dental practice, so I chose them for my lingual braces. I’ve already had the braces fitted and it was worth the price. I actually ended up paying less here than I would have at my regular dentist. There were no additional costs after we agreed on the final package. Cathedral Dental was very good. The facilities were clean and well-run. My dentist was also really nice and she explained it all. Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail (which was reassuring). I still go back for follow-ups these days, and everything’s going well.

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.
