Orthodontics is the process of straightening teeth using either fixed or removable appliances. Dr Simon Clarke has been an Orthodontist for many years now and works from our practice 1 day a week providing adult and childrens Orthodontic treatment on a private basis, and was recently awarded Platinum Invisalign provider.
Whether you need extensive treatment or a more subtle change we have an option to suit you. During your consultation Dr Simon Clarke will discuss the options available to you along with any pro’s and con’s associated with them and together you can decide which is the best option for you.
Options available are:-
Fixed brace – Metal wire attached to the teeth using small metal brackets and rubber bands. The rubber bands are clear although you can request coloured ones.
This brace cannot be removed.
Inman Aligner – This is not attached to the teeth, and although it is removable it should be worn at all times except for eating and cleaning teeth.
Invisalign – Looking a little like mouthguards these are clear and should be removed for eating and teeth cleaning. These are a lot more discreet than the other options but may not be suitable for you.
