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.

Very smooth and straightforward process, and also very reasonably pricedAlexander, UK, 16 09 22

Would definitely recommend for orthodontics treatment. I did a lot of research on both Invisalign vs Sparks and also which doctor I wanted to work with. The team was great Cristiana accommodated me very quickly, I really trust Dr Lydia, very smooth and straightforward process, and also very reasonably priced compared to others I had researched.

Braces  
Orthodontic braces are devices used in orthodontic treatment to straighten and align teeth, correct bite issues, and improve overall dental health. They consist of brackets, wires, and elastic bands that gradually work together to shift the teeth into the desired position over time.Brackets are small metal or ceramic pieces attached to the teeth using a unique adhesive. Wires are then threaded through the brackets and adjusted periodically to apply gentle pressure to the teeth, guiding them into the correct position. Elastic bands help the wires apply the necessary force to the teeth. Orthodontic braces can be made of different materials, including metal, ceramic, or plastic. They can also be customised with different colors and patterns to make them more personalized and fun for patients, especially children, and teenagers. Orthodontic treatment with braces typically lasts for several months to several years, depending on the severity of the dental issues being addressed. Patients must follow a strict oral hygiene routine and attend regular appointments with their orthodontist to ensure good progress and adjustments.
Orthodontist Consultation
Orthodontist Consultation £69 - £139
Orthodontics focuses on adjusting your bite and straightening your teeth for oral health and cosmetic reasons. The physical manipulation of the existing teeth and structures provides the foundation for tooth movement. Throughout the orthodontic treatment, this procedure is repeated multiple times so that you may observe gradual but steady growth. Depending on the patient's age and oral health, the process could take up to 18 months. Depending upon the diagnosis of your case, certain teeth may need to be removed before beginning orthodontic treatment. There can be a lack of space for all teeth to fit within the jaw. The teeth may be crowded. Malocclusions make teeth challenging to clean, leading to cavities and gum disease. Strengthening your teeth in Central London is a way to improve the beauty of your smile. Orthodontic treatment has a variety of benefits. These essential advantages can give you completely straight teeth if you are self-conscious about crooked teeth. If you require further dental treatments, it helps to have a properly aligned jaw and bite, and you may find it easier to speak and eat with well-arranged teeth. By shifting the teeth into a more controllable position, you may ensure that you are thoroughly clean between teeth, reducing gum disease. Clear aligners or traditional braces can correct crowding or spacing, improving the bite and aligning the teeth in four stages: aligning the edge, correcting, finishing and retaining.

Very clear and preciseChaudhary, UK, 15 12 21

Professional dental establishment. Followed all the covid rules to limit spread. All checks made at the steps of the clinic prior to entry. I went to have my teeth cleaned by the hygienist. I am sorry I forgot her name. I am a myeloma patient, so she went through my medical history before she started. I have a very sensitive mouth but she put me at ease. I did not feel a thing. She explained what she was doing as she went along. Very clear and precise. Done a great job on removing strong stains on my teeth and cleaned them thoroughly. Very happy. Highly recommended.
