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!


Our 5* Reviews

“I’ve been going to see Richard and the team for several years at Hale Dental. The whole team are super professional and make you feel comfortable the minute you walk in, with a comfortable lounge area and drinks facilities. This is a practice that’s ahead of the game with technology, its always appealed to me to know that you are getting the best service available. Thank you to all the team for everything you do.”
Phillip Munro
“I went to Hale based on a recommendation, to have Invisalign treatment. For over 40 years I had horrendously crooked teeth with one front tooth pointing backwards at a sharp angle. From the point of initial consultation and contact Megan, Sophie and the team have been outstanding. The treatment was fully explained, every step of the way. Each session has been done in minutes and no question is too much. I always get a great explanation of what each session will do. I’m now nearing the end and starting to whiten whilst using the final finishing aligners. My teeth? I’m absolutely delighted and I’m not finished yet.”
Mark Stanton
“Great service overall, pre-surgery appointments, the surgery day itself and post-surgery care. Very well handled by Richard, Jonny and team.”
Yannis Nicolaidis
“I would highly recommend Hale Dental and Implant Clinic to everyone. They are not just professional but extremely kind, helpful and sensitive at what can be a very nervous time. From Hayley on reception who was so friendly and took time out to explain there were road works and it may delay my journey, to Donna, my care coordinator, who was so positive and reassuring to Jonny my dentist who is the most understanding and patient practitioner I have come across in all my time visiting the dentist. I would not go any where else. Thank you to all of you.”
Lisa Darlington
“In need of implants and scared of the whole process, Hale Dental have already made me more comfortable: you know that you are in safe hands.”
Steve Donaldson
“Hale dental and implant clinic is probably the best place to visit if you have dental worries. Care and kindness shown to patience is really outstanding and very rare. I thoroughly recommend it…”
Robert Walker
“Absolutely outstanding service and experience. My daughter’s teeth look amazing. The personal care and attention she received during her Invisalign treatment was fabulous. Great options for appointments and could not be happier. My other daughter went to Turret and our experience was polar opposite. Hale dental were great and took her treatment over too for a small cost to correct the outcome we were left with from Turret. Couldn’t recommend Hale Dental more highly.”
Andrea Sennett
“From a very apprehensive patient I can only say how professional all the staff were and all the way through the procedures details were so clearly explained. One very satisfied patient who would not hesitate to recommend Hale Dental.”
Jean Kehoe
“Never previously used but was put in contact via my dentist due to a problematic implant that was unable to be fixed. Despite being the week before Christmas, they fitted me in at very short notice, everyone was extremely pleasant and professional, from Megan who called to arrange the appointment and welcomed me on site to Richard, the implantologist who explained everything clearly and succinctly. The icing on the cake was that he solved my problem despite the implant system being one he had never encountered previously. Delighted to recommend to any prospective clients. The surgery is very clean, professional and welcoming.”
