Conventional fixed and removable orthodontic appliances ( braces ) are regarded as the Gold Standard in orthodontic treatment, their sophisticated range of movements allow even the most severe of irregularities to be corrected successfully and predictably with long term stability.

Our teeth straightening service lets you choose between fixed or removable options. Here they are in a nutshell:
Tooth coloured braces
Teeth straightening with fixed braces uses a more traditional method, but is no longer synonymous with ‘metal mouths’. Our fixed braces contain clear ceramic brackets with white wires so braces are less noticeable. The absence of removable braces means this teeth straightening method can be easier to manage with kids.
This removable teeth straightening method uses a series of clear removable retainers to straighten your smile. Because these appliances are clear and removable, the teeth straightening process is discreet and therefore very popular with adults. This service is provided by Dr Sameer Patel.
The Inman Aligner
This teeth straightening treatment uses just one removable retainer, making the process much shorter and also cheaper. However, the Inman Aligner teeth straightening method can only be used for the front top and bottom teeth and is slightly more visible than Invisalign. This service is provided by Dr Sameer Patel.
Teeth straightening benefits
There are plenty of benefits to having straighter teeth:
- Teeth straightening can dramatically improve the attractiveness of your smile and therefore your confidence. This in turn can increase your social and career success.
- Teeth straightening can also improve dental function. By aligning the teeth, the forces exerted on them when you chew, talk or simply move your teeth are balanced, resulting in better long term health of your teeth, gums and jawbone. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the chance of cavities and gum disease.
