FAQs

Orthodontic treatment uses appliances (or braces) that are fitted to the teeth to gently adjust alignment or position, slowly over time.

Braces are:

  • custom-made
  • prescribed and designed according to the patient’s particular needs
  • designed to apply gentle forces, using special wires, in a carefully controlled direction

In this way, braces precisely move the teeth, through the supporting bone, to a new more desirable position.

Every individual is different, but treatment usually lasts between 18 months – 2 years.

No.

If indicated, the replacement of any missing teeth will have to be done by your dentist.

During the initial consultations with your orthodontist, this will be highlighted to you if it’s something you’d need to plan for.

Removable Appliances

Removable appliances are used to undertake simple tooth movements. They’re safe to use in younger patients who may still have baby teeth present.

Functional Appliances

Functional appliances (braces) are usually removable and are also known as ‘growth modification appliances’.

They can be used to guide the growth and development of children’s jaws, where there may be a mismatch in the size of their upper to lower jaws.

Fixed Appliances / Braces

This is what people usually think of when they imagine braces.

Fixed braces are:

  • bonded / cemented to the teeth for the duration of treatment
  • made up of small attachments (brackets and bands) linked together using special orthodontic wires
  • usually made of stainless steel, but tooth coloured brackets are also available as a more aesthetic alternative
  • - normally fixed to the outside of teeth (labial appliances), but special fixed braces that are stuck to the inside of teeth (lingual appliances) are also available

Some patients may need to wear elastics to achieve the desired result. These can be applied and removed by the patient.
