Teeth Straightening

If you are unhappy with a mis-aligned smile why not ask your dentist about the options that are available to improve it.

Our Systems to Realign Your Teeth

At Cox and Hitchcock, we offer a comprehensive orthodontic service, with either our Specialist Will Fitzpatrick, Rebecca Williams or with one of our cosmetic team, depending on your individual case complexity. We offer a variety of systems to realign your teeth. At you initial consultation, we will discuss what aspects of your smile you are unhappy with. We will then discuss each treatment option available, along with pros, cons and associated costs.

The three main systems that we use are CFAST, Invisalign and Clearaligners (F22 or Smiletru). If you decide that you would like to go ahead with treatment planning, an appointment can be made for a full case assessment. At this appointment we will take photographs, x-rays and a digital scan of your teeth, so your treatment plan can be completed and finalised.

Once formulated and agreed, treatment can begin at your next visit.

Aligners

This discreet orthodontic technique uses a series of custom-made aligners to gradually move crooked, gappy or crowded teeth to an improved position. As it is a less noticeable way to straighten teeth, it is suitable for adults or teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing very obvious braces.

Your dentist will offer to put you on a waiting list an NHS orthodontis, provided you fulfil the referral criteria. Irregularities of teeth which are less than 4mm out of line (e.g. open bites of less than 4mm) or deep bites with no functional problems will not qualify for NHS treatment.

General dentists refer to orthodontists complex cases and patients that are still growing. Such cases need a specialist orthodontist. Orthodontists require additional education and training before they’re able to call themselves a specialist. While some orthodontists still practice general dentistry, most focus solely on their specialty.
