What are braces?

Braces are orthodontic appliances that are used to align and straighten teeth, correct bites, and improve your overall dental health. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected by wires and elastic bands. By continuously applying pressure to the teeth, braces gradually adjust their position over time, until they’re perfectly symmetrical and aligned.

Types of braces

At the Clock Dental Practice, we offer a variety of state-of-the-art braces options to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our patients. These include:

01

Traditional
Metal Braces

These are the most common type of braces and consist of metal brackets and wires visible on the surface of teeth. They are highly effective and can treat a wide range of orthodontic problems.

02

Ceramic
Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces, but the brackets are made of clear or tooth-coloured materials, making them less visible. They are an excellent option if you’re looking for a more discreet, less conspicuous orthodontic treatment.

03

Lingual
Braces

Lingual braces are similar to traditional metal braces, but the brackets are attached to the back of the teeth instead of the front, making them virtually invisible. Similar to ceramic braces, they are a great option for patients who want a completely hidden orthodontic treatment.

04

Clear Aligners
Suresmile

Invisalign is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces, consisting of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. They are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and brushing your teeth, which is why they’re a preferred option for many of our adult patients.

The benefits of
braces

Straightening your teeth with braces offer a variety of benefits, including:

Improved dental
health

Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Increased
confidence

Correcting a misaligned bite can improve your ability to bite and chew properly, which lowers the likelihood of jaw pain and headaches.

Better bite
alignment

A straighter smile can boost your self-confidence and make you feel more comfortable smiling and interacting with others – whether it’s a social or professional environment.

Enhanced facial
appearance

Properly aligned teeth can improve your facial symmetry and overall appearance.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

The length of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the orthodontic issue, the type of braces used, and other factors. In general, most patients wear braces for one to three years. During your consultation, our warm, friendly orthodontist will evaluate your specific needs and provide you with a more accurate estimate of how long your treatment will take.

Caring for your
braces

Taking good care of your braces is essential if you want to achieve the best results and avoid complications. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding sticky or hard foods, and attending regular appointments with your orthodontist.

Who is a good candidate
for braces?

Generally speaking, anyone with crooked or misaligned teeth are good candidates
for braces treatments. With that said, it’s important to consider a few additional
factors when determining if braces are right for you:

01

Age

While braces can be effective for people of all ages, they are typically most effective when the patient is still growing and their jaw is still developing. This is why so many people get braces during their teenage years. Nevertheless, many of our braces patients are adults!

02

Oral health

It’s really important to have strong oral health before you get braces. If you have gum disease or other oral health issues, you may need to address these issues before having your braces fixed on.

03

Commitment

Getting braces requires a commitment to regular dental appointments and good oral hygiene habits. If you’re not willing to commit to these requirements, then braces may not be the best option for you.
