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.

Cathedral Dental Clinic

029 2009 1531 166 Cathedral Road, Pontcanna, Cardiff, CF11 9JD
Rating from 10 Reviews Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entailRebecca, UK, 13 Mar 18

A friend of mine recommended this dental practice, so I chose them for my lingual braces. I’ve already had the braces fitted and it was worth the price. I actually ended up paying less here than I would have at my regular dentist. There were no additional costs after we agreed on the final package. Cathedral Dental was very good. The facilities were clean and well-run. My dentist was also really nice and she explained it all. Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail (which was reassuring). I still go back for follow-ups these days, and everything’s going well.

Briercliffe Road Dental Practice Burnley

01282 574042 84 Briercliffe Road, Burnley, BB10 1UX
Rating from 18 Reviews I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and really happy with the outcomeThidar, UK, 14 Mar 18

I started Invisalign to straighten my teeth 12 months ago at BRDP, Burnley. At the age of 54, that wasn’t an easy decision to make and now I am nearly at the end of treatment. I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and really happy with the outcome. I wish I had this treatment sooner. It’s never too late to transform your smile. Our family have been with this dental practice since 2002. Dr. Powell and the team are very friendly and we always feel comfortable on our visits. Very professional and reliable top class dental practice!

Seven Hills Dental Practice

0131 297 6095 302 Oxgangs Rd North, Edinburgh, EH13 9ND
Rating from 3 Reviews I feel relaxed and confident that the procedures will go wellLemma, UK, 22 Apr 18

Went to Vineeth for a consultation re-implants and was very reassured by his professionalism and was put at ease by his kindliness. I felt seen as a person, not a job that would be earning money. Also after my x-ray which happened in his Livingston practice, he was able to explain the way my treatment would affect my mouth as a whole in a way that made sense. So although I will need a bone graft on one tooth I feel relaxed and confident that the procedures will go well. Very efficient clean and friendly.

Clinic 95

01865 900508 95 West Way, Botley, Oxford, OX2 9JY
Rating from 5 Reviews My experience at this clinic was a very positive one, with nothing unexpected or surprisingFrancesco, Oxford, 24 Oct 18

My left front premolar had a filling and it cracked into two. It was my first experience of having an extraction, but it was considerably less traumatic than I had imagined. The implant was inserted in stages during the following six months. On the whole, my experience at Clinic 95 was a very positive one, with nothing unexpected or surprising. As the course of treatment was always explained thoroughly in advance.

Esthetique Dental

01939 550381 11 & 12 The Stables, Sansaw Business Park, Shrewsbury, SY4 4AS
Rating from 1 Review I got good value for my appointmentSimon, UK, 21 Dec 16

I chose to come to this dentist practice as I knew the dentist I was visiting from a previous practice they worked in. The clinic itself is great, I arrived on the day of the worst storm in years, the power was actually cut whilst I was there. The staff were all very helpful and efficient during this though. I feel like I got good value for my appointment here, the prices I was charged were the same prices I had seen online. I've booked in to have a hygienist appointment with this clinic following my first visit.

Zebon Copse Dental Practice

01252 560557 23 Frenchmans Creek, Church Crookham, Fleet, GU52 0YE
Rating from 12 Reviews In such a short space of time, the difference is just amazingKaren, UK, 27 Nov 17

I have CFast braces and although the treatment is not yet complete (nearly there) - the transformation is already very much evident! I am so excited. Anju, Natalie and the rest of the team are wonderful. Very friendly and they instantly put you at ease. I cannot recommend CFast braces enough. In such a short space of time, the difference is just amazing. I can't stop looking in the mirror! If you are thinking of getting this treatment then look no further than Zebon Dental. You will not be disappointed (even though I initially was when I thought what was pick n mix sweets in the big bowl was actually complimentary tubes of toothpaste)! I chose this clinic for convenience really as it is very close to where I live, but even if I moved, I would still come back to Zebon Dental. Great friendly bunch - look no further.

Rating from 1 Review extremely kind and understanding as well as being very professionalAngela, Cambridge, 21 Apr 16

I Have only been for an initial consultation. The staff were fantastic. They are extremely kind and understanding as well as being very professional. Everything was explained and made clear. There was no pressure and the initial consultation was free. So far this has been a completely different experience to any other I have had with a dentist before. I will report again after I have had work done

Rating from 2 Reviews Really pleasedBrenda, UK, 03 Jul 15

Just had my amalgam filling taken out and replaced with white filling. Looks great! Really pleased with the treatment. Just got to get the rest of my mouth sorted. No pain and the staff are very helpful. In the middle of restoration but is going to look great when finished. Joined the gold scheme which is good value. Waiting room comfortable, and relaxing and the staff provide a good choice of drinks.
