Orthodontists – the experts in teeth straightening
Did you know that millions of Britons are unhappy with the position and appearance of their teeth? As we get older, these problem get worse too.
Being unhappy with the way your teeth look often leads to a feeling of being self-conscious when you’re speaking, smiling, or eating. If these feelings go on for long enough, it can result in low self-esteem.
Orthodontics is a special type of dentistry. It’s the science of making people’s smiles look amazing again. And it’s a brilliant job for any dentist. Our teams here at Didcot and Oxford get genuine personal and professional satisfaction from seeing our clients’ lives being transformed.
It’s not just your appearance though. Sorting out your teeth makes them easier to clean and there’s nowhere for food and plaque to get trapped either. It improves your speech, stops gum disease, makes eating a pleasure again, and it even reduces incidents of headaches.
Read more below on what exactly orthodontics and teeth straightening is, how an orthodontist works with you, and the five treatments available from our Didcot and Oxford practices.
How do we straighten patients’ teeth?
Our orthodontists offer patients at both our Didcot and Oxford practices five different approaches to straightening and correcting their teeth so that they no longer need to hide their smile.
There are dozens of teeth straightening solutions provided around the world by orthodontics research companies. Our orthodontists have chosen to train for and specialise in five unique approaches so that our patients can choose the one which suits their lives and their needs the best.
It’s understandable but many adult patients are put off by the idea of orthodontic teeth straightening because they’re worried about the effect traditional braces will have on their appearance. When selecting our final five products, each orthodontist involved in the decision made sure that every solution we offered to our patients would be “invisible”.
Our orthodontists decided on the following five teeth straightening treatments for our Didcot and Oxford practices:
The Smile Practice is Oxfordshire’s biggest provider of the Invisalign orthodontic brace system. Invisalign is probably the most popular teeth straightening product in the world at the moment.
It’s a clear brace that’s custom-made for your mouth which covers all of your teeth. Over time, the braces gently guide your teeth into the position you agree with your orthodontists at your consultation meeting.

Six Month Smiles
For patients looking for quick and effective results, ask your Didcot or Oxford orthodontist about Six Month Smiles. Six Month Smiles borrows from the tried and tested wire technology but they offer real discretion through the use of comfortable-fitting clear brackets and wires which are the same colour as your teeth.

The Inman Aligner is used to straighten overcrowded or protruding front teeth gently but quickly. It can be used either as a standalone treatment or to pre-align teeth for future cosmetic treatment like whitening or veneers.
The Aligner is also removeable, meaning you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle if necessary. The Inman system is minimally-invasive, extremely safe and kind to your teeth.

Lingual Braces offers patients a supremely efficient teeth straightening service offering speed, comfort, and discretion. Lingual Braces are virtually undetectable when you’re wearing them because your orthodontist actually fits the wires behind your teeth, not in front.

The brackets and the wires used by Quick Straight Teeth are coloured to the hue of your particular teeth, rendering them virtually invisible to the outside world.
