Find out more about our specialist Loughborough orthodontic practice
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.
At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre, our highly skilled & dedicated team of clinicians are able to provide a wide range of teeth straightening options for patients of all ages.
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.
Feeling self-conscious about crooked teeth? Would you like a perfectly straight smile and to benefit from a teeth straightening procedure?
Problems with misaligned teeth can be caused by:
Orthodontic 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 Loughborough Dental, 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.
Correcting orthodontic problems and crooked teeth is not just about the cosmetic appearance; there are very important dental health reasons as well. Misaligned teeth can cause many problems to your dentition including, difficulty in chewing and speaking, excessive wear and put stress on healthy gum tissue and surrounding bone. In addition, teeth that are crooked or overlapping are difficult to clean, which may put you at risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Some ‘Special Techniques’ at Loughborough Dental
AcceleDent - is a modern day orthodontic device that can be used alongside wearing your braces to help speed up the overall straightening process. It is a small device worn for around 20 minutes a day. It uses short pulse technology to gently vibrate the teeth. The device is extremely comfortable and suitable for those patients looking for a quick end to crooked teeth.
ALF Therapy - Is an orthodontic appliance designed to treat problems such as over/under bites and disoriented teeth. This treatment can be used for patients who are suffering from other issues caused by crooked or misaligned teeth such as, speech issues, fatigue, deafness, shoulder pains and headaches
Dany Coated Archwire – For patients who have chosen tooth coloured wires for their fixed orthodontics, a common problem can be that the wires holding their brackets together can become discoloured when eating highly coloured foods. The Dany Coated Archwire has a special coating on the arch wire that stops the discoloration happening. This is a great option for patients who lead busy social lives and is very simple to fix in place.
The Herbst Appliance – The Herbst can be used alongside a fixed brace to help treat a patient’s overjet. An overjet is when you close your upper and lower teeth together but the front teeth are protruding forward, which leaves a gap between the upper and lower sets of teeth. This helps to make your bottom jaw meet nicely with your top jaw.
