Braces Cheltenham

Braces are effective orthodontic solutions to irregular bites and jaw alignments.

Braces-Cheltenham When you or your child needs braces in Cheltenham, look no further than Captivate Dental.

We are a leading dental practice providing braces for Cheltenham children, teenagers, and even adults.

Captivate Dental provides braces that cover a wide range of bite problems including underbites, overbites, open bites, deep bites, crossbites, crooked teeth, and jaw problems.

Captivate Dental uses the Individual Patient (IP) orthodontics system primarily to determine if you need braces and the type of braces that would be best suited to your oral requirements.

Why are braces?

Braces may have been suggested to not only improve your overall orofacial appearance but to also improve a range of teeth and jaw concerns.

If these problems are left untreated, you could experience further problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, earaches, or more.

Braces are applied to the teeth of patients, using force and pressure over time to move teeth into the desired position. Braces are typically worn for a year or more, with adjustments made every few weeks.

What types of braces are available for Cheltenham patients?

When it comes to braces, the dentists at Captivate Dental in Cheltenham will suggest braces based on specific needs. There are a few different options available and these include:

Metal braces or traditional braces

Metal braces, otherwise viewed as the traditional form of braces, consist of standard metal brackets that are adhered to teeth and connected by wire.

Metal braces are periodically tightened, using the pressure to gradually straighten teeth.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to size and shape as metal braces, with the difference being that they are tooth-coloured or have clear brackets so they are less noticeable.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the same as metal braces, except instead of being on the outside of teeth, the brackets and wires are hidden on the inside of teeth.


Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth slowly. The process doesn’t require the typical metal or wires and is virtually invisible making them the perfect option for adults that require orthodontic treatment.

What to expect when you require braces?

With any type of braces, you can expect some form of mild discomfort, and your teeth might be sensitive for a few days.
