Getting straighter teeth is not as painful or expensive as you think!

Straighter Teeth 1 - Blog Header-01

Does having straighter teeth feel like an impossible dream to you? You might be thinking that it will be too expensive, too uncomfortable and take too long.

Here at Balsall Common Dental Practice we offer patients teeth straightening solutions to suit different budgets and lifestyles. We offer Traditional Braces as well as Invisible Braces and Rapid Braces. You may have heard of some of these before and we would be happy to explain how they work in detail at a Free Consultation. Call 01676 529000 or use our online booking facility.

Orthodontics is the term we use to describe the effective long-term straightening of your teeth and correction of your bite. Orthodontics focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using Clear Removable Aligners or Fixed Braces that apply a gentle force to the teeth to guide them into their correct positions. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot shorter and more comfortable than it was in the past. Our team members Dr Ashley Davenport and Dr Catherine Myatt are both trained and experienced to deliver orthodontic treatment to a high standard at Balsall Common Dental Practice.


Your journey to Straighter Teeth

Here is an overview of the teeth straightening process:

1. A Free Consultation to meet and discuss the available options and to recommend which options are most suited to you.
2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to plan the tooth movements in detail.
3. Depending on the system you choose Clear Aligners are provided or Fixed Braces are fitted to start to gently guide the teeth into position over time.
4. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.
5. Once treatment is complete, your retention options will be discussed to ensure your teeth remain in their new positions when the aligners or braces are removed.
