Orthodontic Treatments

We provide all facets of orthodontic treatments, traditional metal braces and aesthetic braces, clear aligners and much more. We work with several different orthodontic systems and have our dental laboratory and x-ray machine, making orthodontic treatment faster, easier, and cheaper!

Orthodontist in Central London

Orthodontistry is first and foremost a measure to ensure proper oral hygiene and long-term dental health; as such, orthodontics is a branch of medicine, not aesthetics. Straight teeth are easier to clean and care for than crooked teeth. Reducing gaps and crevices decrease the likelihood of stuck food, plaque buildup, and bacteria growth. Orthodontistry also reviews the proper functioning of the jaws, as a jaw that closes well will experience less wear and tear when eating and chewing. Proper tooth alignment leads to a cleaner, healthier, happier smile.

Aesthetic Braces

These appliances combine the effectiveness of traditional metal braces with the great advantage of a spotless look provided by clear brackets.
It might be the perfect choice if you are conscious of your appearance! They handle any problems that traditional fixed braces address and are functionally the same. The only difference is that they are discreet, look smart, and are not associated with childhood.

Metal Braces

Fixed metal braces are the most frequently used orthodontic system. They are sometimes called traditional braces. Wearing them might not give you the perfect appearance during your treatment, but these are the most efficient and cost-effective way to align your teeth. Even if they are not the most aesthetic choice on the market today, they are the most widely used appliance with excellent results. A strong and reliable system: correct spacing, crowding, bite discrepancies, and pull-down teeth that have not erupted correctly or may be impacted.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are made of medical plastic that fits perfectly over your teeth like a mouthward. They are removable orthodontic braces that patients must wear for at least 22 hours daily to have the intended effect. They are a more hygienic and more comfortable form of braces that can only correct slight malocclusions and aesthetic problems in the alignment of the teeth.

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is a clear aligner brand. They are thin and personalized precisely for you and are thus nearly invisible when worn. Transparent braces will gently guide your teeth into a better position where they align more with each other until the final result is achieved. You will receive new sets of aligners at each activation session for 1-2 weeks.

Spark Aligners

Spark Aligners London
Spark Aligners can serve as an alternative to traditional braces or other clear aligner brands like Invisalign. Unlike fixed metal or aesthetic braces they are nearly visible and removable: you can take them off while you eat and brush your teeth. These aligners use a unique transparent material that is custom-made for your teeth and gum line.They will straighten your teeth, often in less time than traditional braces.  While things like coffee, fruit juice, chocolate, or tea can stain the material, it may take longer for the discolouration to become visible.

Orthodontics For Children

Child wearing orthodontic appliances
As the jawbones and the face are still growing, orthodontic treatment for children can be very different from adult orthodontics. Early orthodontic treatment can start around 6-7 and potentially eliminate the need for more harsh treatment in the future. Children have only milk teeth at this age, and their jawbone is constantly growing. Orthodontic devices are used to train children’s bones on their facial muscles. The orthodontist, therefore, may recommend removable devices and functional trainers for your child.
