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 happy with their friendly helpful serviceCarol, UK, 29 03 17

Yesterday I visited Infinitidental Clinic for a Hygienst treatment with their new lady Suzanne Hogan, she was friendly efficient and speedy with her treatment. I had a special polish which she recommended and my teeth look much better. I go to Nisha Patel for my dental treatment on a regular basis and she recommended that I see Suzanne also on a regular basis. I am happy with their friendly helpful service, the place is cheerful and calm and clean. The receptionist is delightful and my whole experience of going to the dentist has been a complete change for the better. I like to use my local businesses.

I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it wentMaggie, UK, 21 08 19

I was referred by my usual dentist to Professor Luigi Nibali for a specialist periodontal deep clean treatment. Having experienced this once already in the past I was quite apprehensive as I remember it as having been excruciatingly painful. I'm pleased to report that it was a far better experience this time around. My initial meeting with Prof Nibali already helped me to feel a little less nervous. Then, for the actual treatment, the comfortable surroundings and reassuring manner of both the professor and his assistant put me at even greater ease. I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went. I now feel a lot less apprehensive should I need to undergo the same procedure again.

The dentist is just so professional and I felt like I was in safe hands the entire timeShazia, UK, 05 03 18

I chose Bluebell Dental Practice for my Six Month Smiles treatment. For me, it wasn’t about price. In fact, this clinic was actually the most expensive one I found, but I chose them for the doctor there. Dr. Suki just seemed really calm and collected. She struck me as being very knowledgeable. I feel the results were worth the money I paid. It’s a good clinic, even though it was pricey. The facilities were fine and clean. I think they forgot to give me a call once, but the service was still very good. Dr. Suki did an excellent job - she’s just so professional and I felt like I was in safe hands the entire time.

Gentle and through teeth cleaning.Anne, UK, 10 08 15

Had dental treatment at Azamay and am extremely happy. The dental consultation was very thorough, and the cleaning with the dental hygienist was the most gentle I have ever had. My teeth visibly look whiter, and I can now feel spaces in between them that weren't there before. I was also shown great products for me to use at home to keep my teeth looking sparkling. The clinic is more like a spa (they do lots of face and body treatments). Friendly staff, relaxing music, very clean and complimentary brushes/toothpastes in the bathroom. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Azamay Dental Clinic.
