Want to find out more about the many orthodontic treatments we offer? We hope to offer you the very highest standards of service and care with our wide range of appliances. We have summarised the different braces types below.

ClearCorrect Aligner

ClearCorrect aligners

Private treatment

ClearCorrect is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth using a series of clear, customised aligners. Advanced technology allows you to visualise your completed treatment and monitor your progress. This is a great option for those wanting a more discreet, wire free brace.

Fixed metal braces

Metal fixed braces

NHS / Private treatment

Metal fixed appliances consist of small metal brackets attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist complete control over the tooth movements. The ties can be coloured giving you the option to customise the brace.

Ceramic fixed braces

Private treatment

Ceramic fixed braces are more discreet than metal braces and consist of small tooth coloured brackets attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist complete control over the tooth movements.

Self Ligating braces

Self-ligating braces

Private treatment

Self-ligating braces have a unique ligation system that eliminates the need for elastic or metal ties and reduces friction. This means that the applied forces are lighter and the appliance requires less frequent adjustment. Furthermore, the appliances are easier to keep clean and it is possible to treat more problems without the need for tooth removal.

Tooth coloured fixed braces

Tooth Coloured (Plastic) Fixed Braces

Private treatment

Tooth coloured fixed braces are more discreet than metal braces and consist of small tooth coloured brackets attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist complete control over the tooth movements.

Invisible lingual braces

Private treatment

Lingual fixed braces are attached to the back of the teeth making them virtually unnoticeable. The small metal brackets are attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist complete control over the tooth movements.
