How braces work

Braces work by putting pressure on your teeth to shift them into a more attractive position. 

These wires are adjusted regularly (usually every 4-8 weeks) during the course of your treatment. Treatment times vary depending on the severity of your condition, with most completing within a period of two and a half years.

Once the braces are removed, you will wear a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting. 

Types of braces

Braces come in metal, plastic, or ceramic brackets. Of these three types of braces, ceramic brackets are the least noticeable, as their translucent color allows them to blend in with the natural tooth color.

My teeth are almost perfect now thanks to Dr. Lee! She is a fantastic doctor whom I highly recommend to anyone looking for an orthodontist. I had an overbite which has been corrected effectively and efficiently with braces thanks to her careful planning and recommendations.

I'm glad I left it in her good hands as Dr. Lee is one of the top known specialists in the field locally. Her professionalism is balanced with a warm, sunny personality that puts anyone at ease.

You can tell she truly cares for her patients and aims to do excellent work. She is well connected to other top doctors in the industry should you need additional help like I did (jaw surgery). The clinic is very modern, the staff are all very nice. Everything to smile about!

Dr Lee was patient and professional throughout my entire treatment, as well as during all my post treatment follow up sessions.

I am very happy with the results. I have and will continue to recommend friends to her, as well as my own kids when their need arises.

I did braces with Dr Ooi and he is a great dentist, he is always careful in handling all that is needed for my tooth treatment. A smile always from his face, that bring almost all the fear of many people drag of seeing a dentist away.

I pretty much happy with my teeth straightening through the process, and glad I have lesser teeth problem, Dr Ooi is very cheerful, he always finds out how his patient is when seeing him. I guess not very often would people really stop and check how one is especially when one lives in a very busy country.

Dr Ryan is very professional and attentive. As a person who hates visiting a dentist, he is very gentle, caring and cheerful. Every visit, it makes me feel like monthly friend meetup instead of having those kind of irks dentist visit feel. He has been working on my orthodontic treatment for the last 1 year and I am so thankful to him. Photo is the best proof of his professional artwork. (1 year result) I would recommend Dr Ryan to everyone.

I have been Dr Ryan’s patient for my orthodontics treatment for close to 2 years now. At each visit, I grow to become more comfortable in asking him any questions pertaining my braces and he never fails to answer all of my doubts. Dr Ryan ensures that his patients get the best care & treatment for their teeth and gives extra thought about the various procedures he’s going to perform on his patient. He indeed is an excellent doctor.

Invisalign was recommended to me by Dr Toh because of a severe open bite. My treatment took less than a year. Dr Toh was very good at explaining the entire process and would always answer in great detail any question however silly. I experienced very minimum discomfort and I enjoyed the fact that invisalign are very discreet and can be removed occasionally. I am extremely happy with the result which is much better than what i expected. I would highly recommend!

I'm currently doing my braces under Dr Jaclyn. She has been very informative and detailed about my treatment plan and procedures at every step. I like that she takes the time to explain the process and ensures that I understand what is going on. She also takes photographs at every visit, which is a great way to monitor my progress and compare the changes! Super excited at how well my treatment coming along and even more excited to see the final results :D

Dr Jaclyn also recommended that I opt for an additional treatment called Propel to help move my teeth faster, but it does need some injections to numb my gums. (I hate needles!). But, I did decide to go ahead with it because I can complete my treatment faster (YAYY!), and she has been super gentle and understanding, and the injections aren't that bad! So again, excited to see how it turns out!

My experience with Dr. Jaclyn was a smooth and painless journey. She constantly made sure to explain each procedure to me in depth. Dr. Jaclyn avoided causing any pain or discomfort during each session and was patient whenever I had to reschedule. Overall, I had a pleasant experience.

Dr Sham and Dr Co are the best dentists I have met. I had my wisdom teeth extraction with Dr Co and the surgery went really smooth. His many years of experience meant that he was in total control of the surgery. Equally important, he made sure that I was comfortable and alright the entire duration. 2 weeks later, I started to see Dr Sham to put on braces.

Every treatment was comfortable and cheerful. She gave me answers to all I wanted to know about braces before and during the treatment. She engages you with conversation and before you know it, the monthly adjustments are done. She is ever so encouraging and there you know you are good hands. Now I am completely satisfied with my new smile and it gives me great confidence. You will never go wrong with Your services at TLC dental. Thank you Dr Co and Dr Sham!

We are patients of TLC Dental for many years. Both Dr Sham, Dr Co and their team are great people. Hubby and myself had to go through wisdom teeth surgeries a while ago, and it hasn't been easy psycho-ing ourselves to move ahead for the surgery. But it was the professionalism from the TLC team had made the whole process so relaxed and comforting, which gave us a total different perspective to visiting the dentist.

Now that my son and I are ready to have our braces, we naturally approached Dr Sham for consultation. Dr Sham went into great lengths to explain to us the whole process, what we will expect before and after with 3d visuals, and gave us a lot of confidence on what we are walking into. Almost 6mths into the invisalign journey now, and I must say all the follow-ups visits and phone calls were excellent, especially with Dr Sham and her teams' constant monitoring of our teeth's cleanliness and alignment, and not forgetting her positive encouragements. These gestures definitely made us feel at ease and taken care of.

Dr Lim is patient and kind. It's always a pleasure to see her smiling face! She is experience and will ensure highest quality service delivered. Being a braces patient, she has done extra mile to ensure that my braces doesn't give me any issues. Even my sensitive mouth is well taken care of! Her team is professional and helpful and trys to accommodate to my busy schedule! Thumbs up! Value for money! Try out yourself too!

In my opinion, I feel like the doctor has really bad time management.

When I had my braces, I needed to go back frequently for adjustments. Throughout those times, some of my appointments were being delayed. The waiting time can vary between 5 minutes to 40 minutes. There was even once the doctor let a patient take up my appointment time. I ended up waiting for an hour just to get a 10 minutes adjustment. Not to mention that i was schooling during that period of time so it was quite inconvenient for me.

Overall, it was quite a bad experience for me. If you're planning to visit this clinic, do be prepared to wait for more than 30 minutes even with an appointment made.

Just had my braces taken off the other day. Very happy with the results. Overall 2 years experience with the clinic has been very pleasant. Doctor Lee and staff is very friendly and polite. My teeth was horrendous and problems with it was more complex but Doctor Lee manage to explain everything clearly and professionally until i understand what was wrong with my teeth and jaw, if you have any questions you can just ask him and he'll explain thoroughly. Good service !

An Ultimate Guide To Seeing A Dentist In Singapore (2018)

Friends and family often ask me how to find the best dentist and dental clinic in Singapore for their needs.

As a clinician who's headed a dental group over the last 10 years, I've also seen many patients who are frequently confused over their dental treatment options. For example:

  • How come dental treatment costs can vary so much from one clinic to the next?
  • What are the different "kinds" of dentists and dental clinics in Singapore?
  • When should you see a GP dentist, versus a specialist?

In addressing these issues, I hope to share some of my personal insights as an "insider" to help you receive the best dental care for your condition.
