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.

I am very happy with the result so farZoltan, UK, 31 01 21

I have been a patient here for more than two years now. I have always been treated with respect and dignity. The appointment times were kept sharply. The staff is polite and supportive. I started two years ago with emergency teeth extractions followed by bone grafting and a temporary bridge. I had 19 months of top and bottom braces to correct my teeth alignment and I am very happy with the result so far. The treatment plan was discussed and rediscussed at every stage, before and after pictures were taken and the end result is shockingly good. I give five stars on the score sheet, and the holistic approach they treat a patient is really fascinating: it makes you rethink many aspects of your life... During the coronavirus -era government guidelines are strictly followed and PPEs used accordingly, hygiene is top class.

Thank you for giving me back my confidenceAndrew, UK, 23 08 20

Went to stoke road dental clinic, as my dentist was not what it once was. I felt so welcomed here, also a plan was worked out. With two extractions needed, then a chrome partial denture, which should be a lot better then the immediate I have got, which are not good and alignment way out due to gum shrinkage, which has left me very less confident. But the hope is on the horizon, and new partials will be less bulky and won't need to put on lots adhesive on if any and matches with my gum and lines up with the other teeth. So thank you, Vijay, for giving me back my confidence.

I look really fresh and healthy - and the whitened shade is very naturalDominica, UK, 28 09 20

I recently had some upper front crowns replaced that had been done by the NHS and were looking a bit yellow. VIDA carefully explained the safest way of me having this treatment and actually getting to approve my new crowns before they were fixed in place. VIDA gave me control over how I looked and this really has my confidence to make the change. I wore trial crowns for a while to check I was happy with the look and feel, before giving my approval for the final crowns. I’m so pleased I did this! It took away all the worry of the financial investment because I knew that the dentist had checked everything underneath was healthy and by living with my trial crowns for a while I knew I would still feel and look like me even with the improvements to my new crowns. It also gave me time to whiten my teeth and for my shade to settle before the lab-made my final crowns. I’m in my 60s so I was worried about whitening but actually, I look really fresh and healthy - and the whitened shade is very natural. I’d recommend VIDA to anyone thinking of making an investment in their teeth. They don’t rush you, they give you brilliant advice, and produce stunning and natural work. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now I’ve had this experience of first-class dentistry.

I felt like it was about me rather than about a businessSimon, UK, 05 03 21

We moved to this practice has been at the previous one for 30 years. It was a recommendation and I have to say we have not been disappointed. The service is second to none. Friendly staff who make you feel like you are their only client. We signed up for a payment plan which is of excellent value. I have had three check-ups and three hygienist visits all have been excellently talked through and treatment explained. I felt like it was about me rather than about a business. Wonderful Practice.

Pallant Orthodontics - Chichester

The treatment has been not only a fantastic success but also very good valueElisabeth, UK, 19 02 18

Due to gum problems and previous extractions, my teeth had reduced support and a tendency to "drift" especially on the very visible front ones - forcing me to hide their ugly appearance by keeping my mouth closed and giving me a degree of discomfort as a result of increased mobility of my teeth. Dr. Smith's plan was to use fixed braces to improve the alignment of my teeth and offer a more regular and pleasing look. Fixed braces were thought to be a more effective way (in my case) to wear for a year. The treatment has been not only a fantastic success but also very good value considering that the practice offers various payment plans. Finally and very important to me, I have kept my own teeth rather than the unenviable prospect of having to wear dentures! A very smooth, successful and professional process. I was understandably somewhat apprehensive initially, but Dr. Smith and his entire team make you feel at ease, explaining your treatment clearly from start to finish. At Pallant Orthodontists, everyone is so friendly and cheerful that any anxiety soon disappears. But of course, The result was the most amazing moment - totally beyond my dreams! I couldn't have anticipated such a dramatic transformation. I now have a new smile which in turn has given me back my confidence. I know that many reviewers have written similar comments but this is truly what the Pallant Orthodontics practice is all about – a personal approach. Can't recommend them highly enough.

In all of my 67 years, I must say that she is the best dentist I have ever been toJeffrey, UK, 28 01 21

I have recently had a wisdom tooth removed and I would like to thank the practice staff for their efficiency in general and in particular, Vanessa who took the tooth out for her high level of professionalism and skill and her ability to put someone at ease for a procedure that I was not looking forward to. In all of my 67 years, I must say that she is the best dentist I have ever been to and it is with regret that she is not my regular dentist so thank you very much, Vanessa.
