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.

Dealt with my dental issues from the root cause and not only advised but instructed meTanvir, UK, 24 02 20

I had been to other dental surgeons prior to visiting Dr Bashir. I was at first very surprised at the difference in the thoroughness of the assessment procedure, after which it was explained to me step by step the treatment programme recommended for my dental health. The treatment itself was also a surprise in that there was no injection of anaesthetic or any process which even registered as pain my fillings which were done previously by other dentists were removed and redone by Dr Bashir using lasers on the gums, but what I was most impressed with is how Dr Bashir dealt with my dental issues from the root cause and not only advised but instructed me in a regime to restore the health of my gums and eradicate the signs of gum disease present. Dr Bashir is an amazing dentist and his professionalism is such that I was able to sleep whilst procedures were being carried out. The best dentist by far for anyone with any dental issues especially those needing a better approach.
