What are braces and what are they for?

Bracket system is a design for correcting bite and aligning teeth. It consists of an orthodontic arch and braces for each tooth. In order for the arch to fit as closely as possible to the braces, it is fixed with special rubber bands (ligatures) or locks.

What are bracket systems?

Familiarize yourself with all types of braces, weigh all the pros and cons in order to choose the best option for you during a consultation with an orthodontist.


Bracket systems by type of material:

  • Metal braces. This is the most common and budget design option. Braces are attached to the wires with colored ligatures, so every month you can choose their color to your taste. The disadvantage for such braces is unaesthetic, they are visible to others.
  • Titanium braces. Outwardly, they resemble metal, but they are stronger and lighter. Often they are installed in patients who are allergic to nickel. They are more expensive than metal braces.
  • Ceramic braces. Their main advantage is a translucent color, due to which they merge with the teeth and are more aesthetic. Such braces are more expensive than metal braces, and with poor care they can darken or break.
  • Sapphire braces. This is a transparent design (damon clear), which looks aesthetically pleasing on the teeth and is invisible to others. It does not stain and is stronger than ceramic braces. The downside is the high price.
  • Plastic braces. Colorless designs that are cheaper than metal braces. They are hypoallergenic and do not scratch the mucous membrane. At the same time, they are painted and often break. Orthodontists use them extremely rarely, as they help with minor malocclusion.
  • Combined braces. Often they are installed from two materials. For example, ceramic braces are placed on the front teeth, and metal braces are placed on the chewing teeth. Thanks to this, the smile will be more aesthetic, and the patient will spend less money.
  • Aligners (Invisalign). This is a transparent cap that is put on the dentition. It is worn all day or only at night during sleep, depending on the specific occasion. They help with minor irregularities of the teeth.

Types of braces by type of fixation:

  • Vestibular (external) braces. These are classic braces that are fixed on the outside of the teeth. They are cheaper than lingual ones and are easier to adjust and maintain.
  • Lingual (internal) braces. These are metal structures that are placed on the inside of the teeth. Thus, they are invisible to others. Cons of lingual braces: they are more expensive than vestibular braces and are difficult to clean.

Braces by design type:

  • Ligature braces. The orthodontic arch is attached to the braces using ligatures (special rubber bands).
  • Non-ligature braces (damon q). The orthodontic arch is fixed with the help of locks that are built into each bracket.
What should be done before getting braces?

First you need to make an appointment with the dentist . He, if necessary, will cure you caries and gum disease. After that, you need to make an orthopantomogram (panoramic picture of the teeth) so that the orthodontist installs the bracket systems as accurately as possible.

After that, the hygienist will give you a professional teeth cleaning so that the orthodontist can securely install the braces.

What are the steps for installing braces?

Installation of braces approximately takes 1-2 hours and consists of 4 stages:

Stage 1. The doctor conducts a professional cleaning of the teeth in order to fix the braces as securely as possible.

Stage 2. The orthodontist treats the surface of the teeth with a special solution to clean and protect the enamel. Dries out teeth.

Stage 3. Apply dental glue to each bracket and attach them to the teeth one by one, fix with an LED lamp until completely hardened.

Stage 4. Between the braces, an orthodontic arch is threaded , securing with ligatures or locks.


After the installation process, it is necessary to visit the orthodontist every month to adjust the bracket system, replace ligatures and wires. Treatment with a bracket system lasts about 1-3 years to achieve the desired result.

After removing the braces, the orthodontist installs a retainer (thin metal arc) on the inside of the teeth. This is done so that the teeth do not return to their original position.

How to care for braces?

After installing the braces, do not bite into hard foods (for example, lollipops, nuts and popcorn) - this will help to avoid breaking off the braces. Teeth must be thoroughly cleaned with a regular brush and an orthodontic brush, which cleans out small particles of food around the braces. Every month you need to visit an orthodontist , who will adjust the bracket system, change the ligatures and the arc.

Is it possible to put braces in adulthood?

It is often necessary to remove wisdom teeth before installing braces, as they violate the correct position of other teeth. If you need surgery, the orthodontist will inform you after examining the panoramic x-ray of your teeth.

When do teeth start straightening after braces?

In most cases, the result is visible after 1.5-2 months, but to consolidate the effect, it is necessary to wear braces for about 1-3 years.

How long does it take to install braces?

The installation process of braces takes about 1-2 hours. It depends on the number of braces that the doctor will put in.

How long do teeth hurt after braces?

Your teeth may hurt for about 7-10 days, but the doctor will prescribe you an anesthetic that will relieve discomfort. After changing the archwire (every 2-3 months), some patients also experience toothache, depending on individual sensitivity.

When can't you get braces?

Contraindications to the installation of braces are:

  • inflammatory diseases in the oral cavity;
