Teeth Straightening

Teeth straightening (or "orthodontics") is a fantastic way to make crowded, crooked, gappy or twisted teeth a distant memory! Teeth straightening is growing in popularity because it has the huge advantage over veneers that the teeth are not drilled and can often be combined with whitening to produce a great looking natural smile.

We are able to offer a wide variety of options to give you a straight, confident smile such as:

Invisalign

An impression or scan is taken of your teeth, and a custom designed 3D computer model is made in the USA, which we can then show you how your final smile will look. A whole series of Invisalign aligners are then manufactured and given to you in stages. Each retainer is worn for 2 weeks before moving onto the next one, which gradually move your teeth into the correct position. Our clinicians have been providing Invisalign treatments to patients for many years with great success. For more information, click here.

Inman Aligner

This method is used for straightening upper and lower front teeth only, and can work extremely quickly in some cases – sometimes even in 6 weeks! It uses a removable appliance that gently nudges the teeth into the correct positions. It is often cheaper than other forms of orthodontics, but is not suitable for all teeth. An Inman Aligner often causes a temporary lisp as it a larger appliance than the Invisalign and other aligners, but your speech often quickly adjusts back to normal after a couple of weeks.

6 Month Smiles

This method uses white wires and white brackets to improve your smile, and treatment is often finished within about 6 months! The teeth movement is often much faster than clear aligners or invisalign but the compromise is that the brace is not removable, so it your choice as to which priorities you have – speed or invisibility!

Conventional Wires and Brackets

This method is the traditional way of improving your smile, and is the most comprehensive way of moving teeth especially with more challenging cases. White brackets can be used if required to improve aesthetics, and this method gives the most control over moving teeth into the correct positions. Both Dr Carlson-Hedges and Dr Ryan Jeyakumar have previously completed a 2 year course in fixed orthodontics using conventional wires and brackets under the guidance of internationally renowned orthodontists Johnathan Sandler and Alison Murray.
