Teeth Straightening involves moving teeth to a better position to improve the appearance, function and general health of your mouth.

Various appliances are used to apply gentle forces and these can treat a range of issues including:

Short term and more discreet teeth straightening options

There are a number of alternatives to traditional braces that may be suitable for older patients who don’t want to wear noticeable appliances including:

Invisible braces

Clear aligners – This treatment features a series of custom-made clear aligners that are changed every two weeks and gradually move teeth to their desired position. They are removable, so you can keep teeth and gums clean, and there is no restriction on what you can eat.

Short term solutions

Faster acting fixed braces use advanced technology to quickly straighten just those front teeth that show when you smile and results can be seen in as little as six months.

Another short term solution is a custom-made aligner with a spring and thin bar that uses a combination of pushing and pulling to move the front teeth into an improved position in just 8-16 weeks.


After any type of teeth straightening, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your newly straightened teeth in line.
