What are braces?
Braces are appliances used to change position of teeth. Today adult orthodontic treatment uses mainly braces. The orthodontist prescribes you suitable and most comfortable braces according to the required treatment. Before any treatment and prescription of braces it is necessary to consult an orthodontist in order to determine the nature of treatment the mouth needs. You are welcome to contact our specialists for advice and to determine the type of braces your teeth need.

Duration of treatment with braces
Usually, the duration of treatment with braces is about one and a half years. However, in milder cases, treatment may be limited to one year. For very complex occlusion disorders, treatment can last three years or even longer.
The duration of treatment with braces depends on:
- The severity of the occlusion problem.
- The number, size and placement of the removed teeth.
- Patient’s gender and age.
- The structure of the jaws.
- The general state of health of the person.
- The material of the braces.
- Regularly used medications.
