Orthodontics.

The position of our teeth can change throughout our lifetime. If you find that the change isn’t one that you’re happy with, achieve your perfect smile with our Orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign.

Invisalign is perfect for simple cases where a tooth may be slightly rotated or to close gaps in your smile. Invisalign is a series clear plastic aligners (gumshields) worm over 2-12 months that slowly change the position of all your teeth. They need to be worm all day and are only removed when eating. They will be changed every 2-3 weeks with a review by the dentist once every couple of months.

Patients love them because they are so discreet and comfortable. If someone has meeting or a presentation, they can easily be slipped out for a few minutes and popped back in once the task is complete.

Clear braces.

Clear braces are fixed onto the face of the teeth and wire is used to move the teeth into the desired position. C-Fast and Six Month Smile® are two types of clear braces, and are usually held in place with white wire secured to the teeth using clear bands.

Metal braces.

Braces are fixed orthodontic appliances. Many people may have worn braces as a child and as they teeth have relapsed it may be the best option for adult braces. Braces are also the preferred treatment for severe or complex cases. They come in either clear used for simple and moderate cases, or traditional metal braces for complex treatment.

Treatment FAQs.

Most of our patients tell us that in general braces and Invisalign do not hurt. They also explain that when they have new trays or the bands are changed the teeth can feel tight for a couple of hours or days. This usual resolves very quickly.
Braces usually take longer as the are for more complex cases, we expect them to take around 6-9 months for clear braces and up to 18 months for metal braces. 18 months are for very complex cases. Invisalign will usually be quicker as the problems are easier to solve. We would expect from 2 months up to 6 months. Unlike braces, Invisalign can be removed so if they are not worn all the time they will take a lot longer to move.
Every orthodontic patient will receive a retainer. Either a fixed ( thin wire glued to the back of the teeth) or a removable (thin gum shield to wear at night) or in some instance both will be provided. This is to ensure that your teeth do not resort back to they way they were before treatment, this is known a relapse.
Orthodontic treatment has become very affordable, each case will differ depending if both upper and lower teeth require treatment. Treatments can start from as low as £35 per month.
