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.

One of the most patient people I have everJulie, UK, 24 08 17

I started to visit Martin about 2 years ago and would like to share my experience with anyone who has a fear of the dentist. It took me 2 visits with my husband coming along for moral support, to get through the doors of the practice and into the chair. Martin is one of the most patient people I have ever met and made sure I was at ease before even asking me to open my mouth. I needed a considerable amount of work done which was done under anesthetic over a couple of visits. I am happy to say I now go to see my hygienist Jill every 3 months, who is brilliant at her job and is completely aware of my fear. She compliments Martins good work in every sense with the same approach, friendly, smiley, calming and reassuring attitude towards your first and all follow-up visits. I continue to see Martin every 6 months for check ups. I cannot praise this practice enough, please go along and let them try to help you overcome your fear in the same way as they have done for me. I now go alone to my appointments and don`t have sleepless nights before a visit. I knew I needed to go to the dentist so asked my husband to have a look for somewhere and he researched clinics in the area and thought this would fit the bill. All the staff are friendly and smile as you come through the door it has a very calm feel and if like me you are petrified they make sure you don`t wait too long for your appointment.
