Traditional Style

Fixed Braces

Traditional style fixed braces are attached to the outside surfaces of the teeth. With the advances in orthodontic technology the brackets used are now very small and less obvious. In most circumstances we can use clear/porcelain brackets.

Using the records taken at the initial consultation, our clinical team work closely with the in-house laboratory technician to pre-set each individual component of the appliance in the most ideal position prior to fitting. This makes for a faster, more comfortable fitting procedure and ensures complete accuracy for the very best end results!

Our orthodontists will select a treatment plan and appointment schedule to best suit your lifestyle and will always use very gentle, low-force movements to ensure minimal discomfort.

Fixed braces are suitable for nearly every dental problem and can be used on patients of all ages.

Bespoke Treatment

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are adhered to the inside surfaces of the teeth for complete discretion providing you with the confidence to carry on with day to day life and allowing the gradual changes to be observed as they happen.

This appliance is entirely bespoke and manufactured in Germany using the very latest in CAD-CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) technology. Our orthodontists work alongside the Incognito laboratory team to adjust and refine the appliance design, ensuring the very best fit and excellent end results.

Lingual braces can, in some cases, have limitations and may not be suitable for everyone – this will be confirmed during your orthodontic investigations with us.

Modern alternative

Clear Aligners

Invisalign® aligners are a modern alternative to more traditional wire and bracket appliances. The treatment involves a series of clear custom fitted aligners to be worn over the teeth. Each aligner in the series is slightly different to the previous and this gradually moves your teeth into the desired positions.

The clear aligners are almost unnoticeable and allow patients to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would, helping maintain a high standard of oral health throughout treatment.

Prior to manufacture, an online 3D simulation of your teeth will be created. The clinical team will be able to adjust and refine your individualised treatment plan and you’ll be given the opportunity to view the planned movements and finished results before we begin.

Invisalign® Aligners are suitable for a variety of cases and can be used on patients of all ages.

Life-long Results

Retention

We believe this to be the most important phase of your treatment. The correct method and supervision of retention will guarantee life-long results.

Following orthodontic treatment your teeth will be maintained using a combination of fixed and removable retainers. The fixed retainers are tiny wires fitted behind your front teeth – usually the first four or six in the upper and lower arches.

We are fortunate to have the service of our very own on-site orthodontic technician, who works hand in hand with the clinical team right here at our practice to provide on the spot service. Your retainers will be prepared and fitted on the same day the braces are removed to ensure the perfect fit.

Retention is an integral part of your treatment. To ensure a life-long stable result, we monitor your retainers for a minimum of 12 months after their fitting.

Well Looked After

Hygiene & Care

We will only place braces in healthy, well looked-after mouths. Throughout your treatment your oral hygiene will be closely supervised and advice given where needed.

On the day the braces are fitted your dedicated orthodontic therapist will explain your cleaning plan and provide you with a variety of useful cleaning aids individual to the anatomy of your teeth. We always stipulate that patients must maintain their regular dental and hygiene appointments with their general dentist and hygienist during the orthodontic treatment. This holistic approach is essential for good oral health.

Should there be an emergency outside of our normal working hours, our orthodontists are contactable on the emergency phone line at any time.
