Roseneath Dental Surgery, as one of the leading teeth straightening clinics in Surrey, we offer a number of different orthodontic solutions, including Six Month Smiles fixed braces, the removable Inman Aligner and the popular Invisalign system of discreet aligners.
What Can Braces Help With?
Braces can help with a number of cases where the placement of teeth is less than ideal. There are many examples but for example, braces will be suitable where there are gaps between teeth, are crowded, crooked, there is an over or underbite where the teeth do not meet properly, or teeth are crossed over.
Different brace solutions are geared towards different cases, are suitable for different patients and have different treatment times.

Our patient journeys
Conventional fixed braces consist of a series of brackets and a wire that connects them. The brackets are made out of metal and are bonded to the surface of your teeth, with a wire that connects each of the brackets on the top or bottom of your teeth. Fixed braces are capable of handling a wide variety of cases and take up to two years for a treatment to complete, depending on the complexity of cases.
Removable braces consist of a single removable device, which are used for less complex cases. The suitability of a patient for removable braces depends on the case being undertaken, so please consult your dentist for more details.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are fixed braces with a difference. Not only are the brackets more discreet and less noticeable than conventional fixed braces, they also are faster, with many cases taking between six to nine months to complete. The reason for faster treatment times is that Six Month Smiles are designed to only straighten the teeth most noticeable when you smile.
For fast, effective, removable teeth straightening in one appliance, the Inman Aligner is worth considering. Designed using two aligner bows fixed to nickel-titanium springs, the Inman Aligner applies a large “squeeze” effect over the front teeth, straightening them in a matter of weeks.
Invisalign was the first clear aligner system on the market and allowed people to have beautiful straight teeth without spending long periods of time wearing noticeable braces. The removable, clear aligners that are the core of the Invisalign system are barely visible when you smile. Each aligner in the series that make up your treatment is custom made for the results you want. Each aligner lasts two weeks before simply swapping out for the next one until your smile has been perfected. Invisalign treatments last between 9 months and 2 years, depending on the complexity of treatment.
ClearSmile Discreet fixed braces are a lingual brace system that provides all the benefits, versitility and teeth straightening power of fixed braces but with no one but your dentist knowing. The brackets are on the back of your teeth, unlike with traditional fixed braces. A ClearSmile Discreet brace treatment would also take up to two years to complete depending on case complexity.
Whichever teeth straightening treatment you go for, wearing retainers after your treatment is so important in order to maintain a beautiful smile. There are generally two kinds of retainers. Removable retainers need to be worn every night going forward in order to stop your teeth relapsing and moving back to their original position, but there are also bonded retainers, which are a small wire device that is bonded to the back of your teeth and stop them moving, without being visible when you smile.
