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 highly recommend themNatalia, UK, 06 03 21

In the past year and half, I had to undergo a couple of complicated procedure consisting of laser gum treatment, two implants and a bridge. I must admit that I am quite a nervous person around any medical procedures and do not deal well with pain. Dr Balachandran and his staff have been extremely attentive to all my needs making me feel safe and relaxed all the way through my very lengthy procedures. I highly recommend them.

All of the staff are professional, friendly and take the fear out of all visitsDiane, UK, 30 05 18

Having suffered from a horrendous toothache. I phoned to arrange an emergency appointment and was fitted in for that day. I required an extraction which was carried out immediately and the relief was amazing. I can't recommend the dentists in this practice highly enough. Having had some horrible experiences at various dentists while growing up, I joined this practice and found a brilliant and supportive dentist in Doctor Chan. I have since attended regularly and completely lost my fear of dentists. Since Dr. Chans well deserved semi-retirement, I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Laura Grant. My emergency treatment was with Dr. Joe Watson and I have regular appointments with dental therapist Andrea Servant. All of the staff are professional, friendly and take the fear out of all visits. I would recommend the staff and the practice to everyone.

I was so pleased with the treatmentBill, UK, 25 05 16

My most recent treatment was three fillings, two for exposed gum margins and one large one to replace an old, cracked filling. I was slightly apprehensive because my normal dentist had recently retired and I had not met his replacement, Adam Odoj before. However, I was soon at ease as Adam, as he prefers to be called, was quite brilliant. Very friendly, extremely efficient and exceptionally capable, quite the best dentist I have had. I was so pleased with the treatment that I have arranged to have other work done now, rather than in the distant future. I have attended this clinic for 23 years. Previously it was NHS, but for about the last 10 years private. Very modern and well appointed with lovely, friendly staff. Easy parking outside or nearby. Reasonable pricing for treatment and very efficiently run.
