What Are Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the technique used in dentistry to treat and correct irregularities in the alignment of the teeth or jaws – some people know it by the name of teeth straightening.

Orthodontics are more commonly known as ‘braces’. Braces are used to gradually align teeth over a period of time to create a perfectly straight and beautiful smile. At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre we are renowned as a local specialist orthodontic practice and have treated many patients’ who have been troubled by either their appearance due to misaligned, crooked or ‘wonky’ teeth or issues with function caused by jaw position.

At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, our highly skilled & dedicated team of orthodontist clinicians are able to provide a wide range of teeth straightening options for patients of all ages.

If you want to be looked after and have great teeth then this is the place to go! There is nothing I can fault about this company. They have always been so friendly, professional, always had appointment times, kept in touch to confirm appointments and the place is always spotless and smells amazing! Cleanliness is 10/10 too. They go the extra mile, sending little cards to wish you well with your new braces. I had one to say we hope your getting on with your new brace and another to say we hope you are loving your new smile! I am extremely happy with my results and I would high recommend this dentist to anyone!

Straighten Your Teeth With Us

Orthodontics treatment and techniques have developed and changed vastly in the last 10 years. Treatment has become much more predictable and results can last a patient a lifetime, whereas a few years ago teeth may have relapsed.

In addition, we are finding that many adults are enjoying the results of teeth straightening at our Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, brought about by the wide range of treatment options that we can offer to permanently straighten teeth.

Ultimately, whatever brace or teeth straightening system we decide to use we will choose together to ensure that you achieve the smile of your dreams.

I had a lingual brace fitted to my top teeth with Ascent Dental last year and I am very pleased with the results. I had some overcrowding and crookedness which has now been resolved and I feel much more confident with my smile! I would definitely recommend this type of brace if you are wishing to straighten your teeth invisibly, no one even noticed that I had a brace unless I pointed it out. The staff were very helpful and supportive during my treatment. I am now considering having my bottom teeth done with the same type of brace.

Before & After

Damon Braces & Teeth Whitening

This patient was unhappy with the colour, staining and alignment of her teeth. We used damon braces to widen the smile and align the teeth followed by teeth whitening.


This patient had severe crowding in the upper and lower arches with an incisor in the palatal. We aligned the teeth with braces without extracting any teeth to give her a fantastic smile.
