An introduction to straightening your teeth

Haven is not a specialist orthodontic practice but you’ll see we do offer orthodontic techniques which benefit our adult visitors.

So if you are looking for a straighter smile, why not come in to talk to us about it? Ann will be happy to discuss your particular concerns with you.

She’ll also take you through the different types of braces Haven offer. These are a mixture of fixed and removable teeth straightening systems.

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces systems are a more comprehensive form of teeth straightening. They allow for movement of a number of teeth and you can expect to wear them from between six and 18 months depending on the amount of straightening your teeth require.

Fixed braces consist of brackets and bands bonded to your teeth to engage them and very thin metal wires that gently push your teeth into their right positions. Check out the visual illustration of how they work above.

Removable Braces

Removable braces are effective in straightening upper and/or lower front teeth.

Some people prefer the flexibility of a removable system to suit their lifestyle, which is why we offer the Clear Guide option.

Clear Guide braces are not only removable, they are designed to be ‘invisible’.

You can also benefit from a gentle and effective removable brace system called Inman Aligner.
