An absolutely wonderful dentist. Everyone is so welcoming and so lovingly put you at ease (I'm not normally a fan of the dentist) but it was 100% a better experience then I was expecting. I'm super fussy and they made sure I got exactly what I paid for and exactly what I wanted. If u could give more than 5 stars i would, amazing people and a great dentist! 👍

Frequently asked questions about braces and orthodontics

What is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a fully qualified dentist that has undertaken further Masters level qualifications in orthodontics. An orthodontist is registered as a specialist with the General Dental Council. However, the process of moving teeth is called orthodontics and this can also be undertaken by a general dentist with a special interest in orthodontics. Most dental practices that you visit which offer treatments like Invisalign will be undertaken by a general dentist with a special interest in orthodontics.

How do braces work?

Orthodontic braces work by placing a small amount of pressure on your teeth. This gentle yet continuous pressure can tip, rotate and  move teeth. The art of orthodontics is to place pressure on exactly the right part of the tooth in order to move or rotate it. This continuous pressure is achieved in a few different ways:

  • With clear braces. The clear braces put pressure on a tooth to move it in the direction required, after around 2 weeks the tooth has moved a small amount and the brace no longer applies pressure, it is therefore swapped for a new clear braces which applies pressure again and continues to move the tooth.
  • With fixed braces. Fixed braces can be made from metal, ceramics and in some cases clear materials. Fixed braces come in 2 parts, the bracket which attaches to the teeth and wire which stretches between the brackets. The wire will have tension in it and it is this tension which pulls the bracket and therefore moves the tooth. As the teeth move you will need to visit the dentist/orthodontist to have the wires changed/adjusted in order to continue applying this tension. These fixed braces can either go on the front of your teeth or behind your teeth (lingual braces).
  • With removable braces. The principle remains the same, the braces apply pressure to the teeth in a very specific way and the teeth move. Removable braces will use a variety of springs and small clasps which are attached to a plastic base.

How long do braces take?

This really depends on the type of orthodontic appliance (brace) you have and the amount of tooth movement required. Treatments typically range from around 3 months for the most simple cases (usually moving just the front teeth) up to 2 years if all of the teeth need to be moved.

Because front teeth have a single root it is easier to move them and therefore quicker. Back teeth have between 2 and 4 roots which means they are far more difficult to move and therefore take longer.

What can’t you eat with braces?

This depends on the type braces you have. If you have removable braces then you can simply take them out to eat anything you wish. So long as you clean your teeth afterwards before putting your braces back then you can eat anything.

If you have fixed braces you will need to avoid extremely sticky foods which might get stuck to the brace brackets and pull them off.

Are braces the best way to straighten teeth?

Dentists will always want to maintain as much natural healthy tooth structure as possible, this usually means straightening teeth with braces. However there are times when the natural teeth are decayed, dark or not an aesthetically pleasing shape, in this case some form of restorative treatment maybe chosen instead. This could be  dental crowns or dental veneers. Very often your dentist will employ a mix of treatments, moving teeth with orthodontics to get them in the right place physically, then placing veneers or crowns to alter the shape and colour of the teeth.

What are the health benefits of straight teeth?

It’s definitely true that straighter teeth are healthier teeth, this is because it’s very important to clean in between your teeth each day to remove the build-up of bacteria. If this isn’t done then the bacteria can build and cause tooth decay. Crooked teeth can be far more difficult to clean in between as it’s more difficult to insert dental floss or cleaning sticks. Straight teeth make cleaning between the teeth much easier and they therefore tend to have less decay generally speaking.

How much are braces UK?

The cost of braces varies significantly depending on the type of treatment you have. Typically removable braces are available from around £900 and costs go up to full Invisalign treatment at around £4000. When visiting an orthodontist or dentist for braces always ask what’s included in the fee. Make sure you know how much each appointment will be, if retainers after treatment are included and what any extras might be on top of the cost quoted.

At CJ Dental Studio, we offer 0% Finance plans to help spread the cost of your treatment.
