Guide To Getting Braces

Guide To Getting Braces

Whether you’re 13 or 35, getting braces can prove to be effective at straightening a crooked smile. With the right orthodontic solutions, you’ll be able to achieve a healthy and beautifully straight smile. There are a number of types of braces available today. The one that works for you will depend on a number of factors. The condition of your teeth and your timeline for straightening your teeth will need to be considered.

At Crown Dental we offer a number of choices in braces. Fixed braces and lingual braces are just two of the types that we can offer to our patients. The best way to determine which type of braces is right for you is to discuss your goals with your orthodontist.

How do braces work?

Get results you love

When they are in place, braces use steady gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into the desired positions. All braces typically work in the same manner, with gradual pressure moving teeth into their new positions.

The process is slow, steady and should not cause any discomfort for patients once they are used to wearing the braces.

The process is very much the same for all orthodontic solutions. Gradual steady pressure to realign teeth.

Will braces hurt?

Some patients do feel minor discomfort when their braces are first fitted. This is more often than not due to the strange way that it feels to have braces. Further discomfort may be felt once the teeth start to gradually move.
Some patients do report an ache in their jaw or minor irritation against the inside of their cheeks or lips.

This is all typically discomfort that can be controlled with over the counter pain medications. Some tips for braces first day of wear include taking it easy on the food and drink enjoyed. Try to avoid engaging in any activities that could potentially result in a blow to the face. And be certain you contact your orthodontist if the pain is beyond mild or if there is any bleeding.

Am I a good candidate for getting braces?

No two patients are alike, so no two treatment plans will be alike. Braces can treat a number of orthodontic concerns, including the following.

  • Excessive overbite
  • Excessive underbite
  • Crowding of the upper or lower front teeth
  • Teeth are spaced too far apart
  • Past thumb sucking that led to issues with teeth positioning
  • and of course Crooked Teeth

This is of course by no means an extensive list of the issues that braces can help to correct in both adults and children. A consultation with an orthodontist will help to determine whether orthodontic solutions will help to correct some of the concerns patients have.

How long will I have to wear my braces?
-dublin Every patient and every mouth is different. This means that the length of time that braces have to stay in place will vary. Following the instructions of the orthodontist and keeping up with routine checkups will help to keep the treatment plan on track. There are some types of braces that can achieve results in as few as six months.

  • I have been attending Crown dental for many years now. I am impressed by the professionalism and high standards every time I visit Crown Dental. All treatments have been explained to me before the treatments, and the team made sure to put me at ease. I cannot thank Crown Dental enough, and would recommend them to everyone.

    Myself and my family has seen Dr. Erika Barta regularly. Crown Dental helped our family in many ways, we always attend for regular check-ups and cleanings. And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

Crown dental 1st of all fixed my teeth few fillings had to redo a root canal and even a chipped tooth and then some crown's!! and after all that offered me a valplast?? (Not sure if I have the right name)denture no metal! My teeth are now in brilliant condition and after years of no smiles I have mine back two years and love it.

  • I was always scared of the dentist, but not anymore. I received my crowns at Crown Dental, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The treatment was pain free, the team made me at ease during the process. I can't stop smiling and showing my perfect teeth.

  • I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.

    I would highly recommend. As someone who hates the dentist and put off going for years, I can say that going to Crown Dental is probably the best dental experience I've ever had. I am a very nervous patient, but Dr. Joanna is a brilliant dentist who really put me at ease.

  • Getting an Invisalign treatment done here. Erika and her assistant are extremely nice people, not once did I ever feel pressured into forking out lots of money like at other dentists. I would 100% recommend family and friends to at least have a check up here and you'll see that it's a positive and professional experience all round.

  • I have been attending Crown Dental for over a year for general dentistry care, and most recently, the fitting of a Post and Core and Crown, under the excellent professional care of Dr. Erika Barta, Principal Dentist. Dr Erika is very thorough, meticulous and experienced, and explains each stage of the treatment at each visit, having first carried out a detailed examination (including X-Ray, where necessary), and explaining the treatment required. Her primary focus is on conservation and restoring the health and functioning of the teeth at minimum cost, and she does not suggest unnecessary additional treatment. She uses high quality and health-compatible dental materials and components in the treatment of her patients. The clinic is equipped with sophisticated and high-tech equipment. The clinic is bright and very hygienic, with extra Covid measures being adopted to provide maximum protection to patients and staff. Dr Erika's fees are very competitive. I highly recommend Dr Erika for her high quality, professional and caring treatment of her patients, where the patient feels reassured and completely at ease.
