Orthodontic Solutions for Every Smile

The position of your teeth can cause many problems, some cosmetic and some health-related.

Having a gappy or overcrowded smile with crooked or protruding teeth can make you feel self-conscious, an issue that can affect confidence in several areas of your life.

If your teeth are misaligned, it can make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. Getting a toothbrush between crooked teeth to remove food debris and plaque isn’t easy, and over time, cavities can form.

How your teeth develop can also cause jaw pain, which could spread to the face, head, neck, and shoulders.

There are several ways to address these problems, including a range of fixed braces and removable aligners. At Hale Dental, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments led by Sophie Parker. Our team will thoroughly assess your smile and recommend the best treatments.


Six Month Smiles

For mild alignment issues, we may recommend Six Month Smiles. This fixed brace system is great for fixing your smile in a hurry. Traditional braces can often take around 18 months to achieve results, but, as the name suggests, the usual treatment time for Six Month Smile is just half a year.

Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and wires fixed to your teeth. The constant slight tension of the wire gently pulls your teeth into position. Throughout your treatment, we’ll see you roughly once a month to make small adjustments to your brace.

This treatment is best used for straightening your most prominent teeth.


Fast Braces

Ordinary fixed braces take time to achieve results. While you’ll notice the crown of your teeth moving, the root also needs to move. This takes time.

Fast Braces use triangular brackets and square wires to speed up the process by simultaneously moving the crown and root. These tooth movements are quick and effective and can even reduce treatment to as few as three months to a year.


Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner system provides fast orthodontic treatment focusing on the most visible teeth at the front of your mouth. This simple removable treatment option consists of Nickel Titanium coil springs powering two opposing aligner bows. The gentle push and pull on each side of the tooth guide your teeth into a more favourable position quicker than most other appliances.

Treatment lengths vary; however, in many cases, you’ll only wear the aligner for three months or less. We’ll see you every few weeks to check your straightening progress.

Before treatment, we’ll take impressions so the lab can make a custom aligner designed for your smile. During your treatment, you’ll need to wear the aligner for up to 20 hours a day. You can remove your aligner at mealtimes or for cleaning.

Inman Aligners are straightforward, effective, and convenient, providing quick results without impacting your life.

Lingual Braces

Where traditional fixed braces sit on the front of your teeth, lingual braces remain hidden behind the back. Lingual braces work like fixed braces, but they do the job from behind your smile, where nobody can see them.

Strong arch wires gently pull your teeth into their new position. Every few weeks, we’ll ask to see you to check your progress and adjust the wires.

The exact length of your treatment depends on the extent of the necessary movement. When we assess your smile ahead of treatment, we’ll have an idea of how long your treatment may take.

What Patients Say

It’s totally worth it!

After an accident, poor repair work with bridges left Phil facing difficulties with speech and low on confidence. So how does he rate implants from the Hale Dental team? He says they’re better than the real thing!

Just go for it!

Guy discovered Hale Dental following a recommendation from his dentist. He says implants from Hale Dental have restored his confidence and put a spring back in his step. And the procedure turned out to be much more comfortable than expected.

Can’t help but smile!

Years of dental neglect left Adrienne’s teeth in a poor state, but she didn’t like the idea of living with dentures. She says implants from Hale Dental were worth every penny—and meeting Dr Richard Brookshaw definitely made an impression!

Andrew Fazakerley
“My local Dentist recommended I consult Richard and the Team at Hale Dental & Implant Clinic regarding issues I was having with an old implant. Despite being officially closed over the Christmas / New Year period, Richard reviewed X-rays and photos of my teeth and arranged to see me at the earliest opportunity. I subsequently received treatment that was simply first class in all aspects and have no hesitation is recommending to others.”
Graeme Freear
“I have been attending The Hale Dental and Implant Clinic for years! I travel a long distance to attend and would not feel comfortable going to anyone else, especially as they know and understand my dental history! I have always received excellent care within a professional, caring and friendly environment!”
Janie Brownson
“One of the best dentists I have ever been to. From check-in the reception staff were super friendly and knowledgable. Then the dentist was amazing – he explained everything and did lots to make sure I felt comfortable. He even took photos and showed where and why I might require treatment. I had fillings put in and it was a good experience. Will be visiting here again next time I need any dental work”
Jay Sondhi
“This may seem bizarre but I actually look forward to visiting a Dentist!!! Yes, I know, very strange, however once you visit Hale Dental you will not want to go anywhere else. All of the staff are fabulous. Receptionists, dental nurses, hygienists – all are friendly and welcoming. As for Richard, well he is THE BEST BAR NON. Enough said, I think.”
Carole Craigen
“Being terrified of dental treatment I can’t say that I was excited at what was to come but, I can wholeheartedly say that Richard and his team made the whole experience calm, friendly, professional and pain free. I felt looked after and had no issues trusting their judgement. I’m very happy with the results and treatment received.”
Laura Duggan
“Over the course of the previous 3 months, I’ve been undergoing cosmetic treatment at Hale Dental Clinic. I must say it has been the most pleasant time; watching as my uneven, slightly yellowed teeth have transformed in to an unrecognisable, unbowed, white smile that I never thought I’d have. The treatment was performed by the delightful Sophie Parker. Sophie is a master of the field, who has not only provided me with stellar results, but also with a genuinely friendly, amazing, personal service. Thank you so much again Sophie and Hale Dental clinic. If and when I require further treatment, you are the only place on my list.”
Matthew Whiteside
“I found Hale Dental to a very Professional practice and the premises are very clean. The practice has all the latest equipment and experience which meant that they were able to deal with all my dental needs. The staff were also both very efficient and polite. I was kept informed with every stage of my treatment plan and I found the treatment to be competitively priced.”
