WHAT EVERY ORTHODONTIC PATIENT NEEDS TO KNOW

What is orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontics is a speciality within dentistry best provided by specialist orthodontists. Specialist orthodontists move and straighten teeth, improving the appearance, and function of the teeth, creating beautiful smiles and a comfortable bite, using fixed, removable or invisalign braces

Why might I need orthodontic treatment?

There are 3 main reasons for having orthodontic treatment:

  •  To improve the appearance of the teeth and face.
  •  To improve the health of the teeth and gums.
  •  To improve function i.e. to make it easier to eat.

What types of braces are there?

There are those, which can be removed for cleaning, known as removable braces.

The second type of brace is fixed to the teeth and cannot be removed for cleaning.

How often will I need an appointment?

Every 6-8-12 weeks

Will orthodontic treatment damage my teeth?

It is important you brush your teeth well, three times per day and use a fluoride toothpaste.

A fluoride mouthrinse should also be used last thing after toothbrushing, to further protect the teeth.

Failure to keep your teeth and brace clean will lead to permanent scarring of your teeth.

Having orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of the teeth will be pointless if such scarring is allowed to occur.

Further information can be given to you about other rare complications.

What if my brace breaks during treatment?


You will need to email the practice [email protected] to find out if a broken brace appointment is needed.

Repeated breakages will slow down the treatment and increase the overall treatment time.

What happens at the end of treatment?


Your teeth will try to return to their original positions.

In order to prevent this you will be fitted with retaining appliances.

These may be worn full time at first and eventually worn part-time.

How successful is orthodontic treatment?

This very much depends on your commitment to the treatment.

As a general rule, patients who co-operate well with treatment get good results, whilst those who do not co-operate well, get poor results.

Unless retainers are worn in the longer term some settling and growth changes may occur after treatment.

If you have any further questions that you feel you would like to ask, then please email then in [email protected]

It is important you fully understand what is involved in having orthodontic treatment before you decide to go ahead.
