The majority of people in the world naturally have some sort of overcrowding or misaligned teeth and this is through no fault of their own. NHS guidelines are very strict about who can receive Orthodontic treatment on the NHS and many people go without specialist treatment due to this.
We would like to offer all patients here at Wensleydale Dental Practice alternative options to those whom do not fall within the NHS guidelines. One of the options available, is Invisalign – the clear alternative to braces or should you wish to have a conventional approach to orthodontics we are pleased to offer our patients fixed (train tracks) appliances too!

Our Dental Surgeon with a Specialist Interest in Orthodontics Mrs Ines Ribeiro would be happy to discuss a personal treatment plan with you upon an initial assessment.
Please be advised that the initial consultation cost is £50.00.
The treatment process
At your initial assessment, Mrs Ribeiro will discuss your personal treatment plan with you. Usually the first appointment will consist of impressions, whereupon a cast will be made of your teeth to show how your teeth are currently positioned and an x-ray to assist your specialist in planning your treatment.
At your second appointment, your chosen brackets will be bonded onto your teeth using specialist dental materials. Once the brackets have been placed a metal wire and rubber bands will be attached to the brackets to realign your teeth. In dentistry we call this treatment phase bonding.
If you suffer from overcrowding you may need one or more teeth extracting to make space for your remaining teeth to move into. If needed, this will be discussed with you at your initial assessment.
You will be required to attend appointments for your brace to be checked and tightened every six to eight weeks. Once you have had your brace in place for your specific time needed a de-bond will take place whereupon your wire, rubber bands and brackets will be removed. An impression will then be taken and a cast made to show what position your teeth have moved to. Once the cast has been made our laboratory technicians will make you a retainer to be worn.
