Available Treatments

Private Treatment

Private Treatment

Private orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. You can be referred to us by your family dentist, or self refer.

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen

Invisalign is a series of clear, custom-made removable aligners used as an alternative to traditional fixed braces. The aligners are transparent and almost invisible making this a popular form of treatment amongst adults and teenagers who would like to straighten their teeth without the look or feel of fixed braces.

Ceramic Aesthetic Fixed Braces

Ceramic aesthetic fixed braces are a good choice if you are concerned about the appearance of metal braces. They work in exactly the same way as stainless steel appliances but are made from a translucent ceramic so that they blend with the underlying tooth colour.

NHS Treatments

NHS Treatment

NHS treatment is available to eligible patients under 18 years and is intended to provide treatment for those patients who require it on the grounds of dental health. You need to be referred to us by your family dentist for NHS treatment.

Twin Block Appliances

A Twin Block appliance is made up of two parts, one that fits in the upper jaw and one that fits in the lower jaw. They work together to alter the way that your teeth bite together by holding the lower jaw forwards.

Traditional Fixed Braces

Traditional Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are carefully bonded onto the teeth and stay in place for the course of treatment. Straightening wires run between the various attachments and are held in place with elastics.

Removable Braces

Removable braces can be removed from your mouth yourself for cleaning. They are used to carry out simple tooth movements and often used in conjunction with a fixed brace.



Following orthodontic treatment it is important that the teeth are held in their new straightened position. This can be achieved by wearing removable or fixed retainers or a combination of the two.
