Orthodontics

A straighter smile can give your confidence a real boost and offers a multitude of benefits including making teeth easier to clean, improving how your teeth fit together and addressing any eating or speaking problems.

We treat patients of all ages, from youngsters, whose teeth may not be lining up properly, to those who have always been unhappy with their crooked, gappy or overcrowded smile.

All registered children will be regularly examined by our dentists during routine check-ups and referred to our consultant orthodontist, Eirini Papadima, if possible crowding is suspected. She will assess their developing teeth and formulate a treatment plan with the help of our new x-ray equipment.

We can also help adults who are seeking an enhanced smile, advising on the best type of appliance, as well as fully explaining treatment costs and how long the process will take.

We offer conventional fixed braces, but also removable and more discreet systems such as Invisalign braces which can prove to be a huge advantage to adults enabling them to carry on with their work commitments.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Each feature is designed to reveal the smile that you deserve.

Because it’s not just your smile that’s full of potential.

Life can continue as normal, as the Invisalign System discreetly does its work.

You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. And because the aligners are removable, it’s easy to maintain your regular oral hygiene and enjoy your usual diet.

As you progress, replacing your aligners every 1-2 weeks, people may notice a gradual change in your smile.

The Invisalign treatment process is as straightforward as it is technically advanced.

  1. SmartTrack® material is clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement.
  2. Engineered to treat a wide range of teeth straightening issues.
  3. Highly elastic for an improved aligner fit and greater comfort.
  4. Once your Invisalign Provider has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth.
  5. You’ll receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
  6. You’ll visit your provider around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners.

During any orthodontic treatment at Fairmilehead Dental Practice, you will be introduced to our experienced Oral Health Educators who will teach you lots of handy cleaning techniques to prevent any damage to your teeth and gums, and keep your oral health in great condition throughout the treatment process. Importantly, our Oral Health Educators and orthodontic nurses will recall you following treatment to check everything is settling in.
