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 were helpful and they talked me through the entire process.Jasmin, Burnley, 18 01 18

This was the first clinic that was able to give me an appointment, so I chose them for my hygienist session. The treatment received was such good value for money. I was quite impressed with Smile Spa. The staff were helpful and they talked me through the entire process. I paid the price I found on the website. I was supposed to book a follow-up appointment but I haven’t had the chance to do so yet, so I’ll probably get to that in the next few months. I had a few concerns about what I could drink after the treatment, and the hygienist told me which liquids I should steer clear of.

Polite and helpfulSamantha, Blackburn, 02 11 14

Clinic seems quite disorganised - receptionist trying her best, in a busy reception on her own to deal with clients booking in, booking out, telephone calls etc. My son has been waiting since June 2013 to have a brace fitted, still not done, appointment on fri 31st oct 14 - Dr Tomas told him to brush his teeth better - make appointment for in 3 weeks to see if brushing is better - however can't get appointment till 19th Dec - fully booked till then.so treatment will take longer and longer, staff polite and helpful however I feel that my son is feeling less confident due to this wait.

I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and really happy with the outcomeThidar, UK, 14 03 18

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. Very professional and reliable top class dental practice!
