Here at the Bridlington Dental Studio we offer 3 types of teeth straightening;
Which one you need will depend on how much your teeth need to move. Read below to find out more about each type of brace and see how each brace might help you create the smile you want.
Fixed Braces are traditional in style. Ceramic brackets and small wires fix the brace to your teeth and remain in place for the duration of your treatment. Your teeth move into position as a result of progressively tightening the wires. Clear ceramic ensures your fixed braces are discreet. They take between 6 and 12 months to straighten.
We guide you through your treatment
Oral Hygiene is very important when wearing Fixed Braces due to the brace acting as a trap for food and plaque. We help you take care of your oral hygiene by providing you with advice on how best to look after your teeth whist wearing your braces. You will have regular appointments with the dentist. This helps you to keep on top of your oral hygiene and we can keep track of your progress.

Here is some information about her treatment
Grace came to us when she decided to straighten her teeth. She decided to first whiten her teeth and then go forward with straightening. After consultation with the dentist, Greg, she decided that Clear Aligners were right for her.
In the following video Grace speaks about how she found her treatment and what her experience with us was like.
The most discrete braces
Smile, talk and eat with confidence
Healthy teeth and gums
Clear Aligners are a removable brace, however they are worn for most of the day. They are only removed for eating. Made from thin clear material, they fit to your teeth like a detailed gum shield. During the treatment, a succession of aligners are worn that move the teeth into the desired position.

Regular appointments with the dentist are needed to track your progress, your oral hygiene, and to perform any alterations to your teeth that might be needed. Frequent appointments also give you the opportunity to talk to the dentist about any worries you may have.
Inman Aligners are a new style of brace which allow for fast, effective teeth straightening. They are made of clear material and metal wires. They have small springs located behind the teeth which exert pressure on the teeth, encouraging them to move into a desired position.
