We provide all types of orthodontic treatment, including invisalign, incognito lingual appliances, Damon self-ligating system and tooth-coloured fixed appliances.
In addition to improving your smile, we can work closely with facial surgical colleagues to address facial aesthetic concerns you may have.
The Damon system and Inovation appliance are fixed braces that allow your teeth to move faster, due to the innovative technology in the components of the brace. This option may reduce the need to extract any teeth, as well as a faster treatment time.
Tooth coloured braces are a great cosmetic option for fixed appliances. We can also use white wires so no metal is visible on your fixed brace!
Ceramic, or tooth-coloured braces blend in really well with the natural colour of your teeth, so the brace is much less noticeable than a normal train-track type of metal brace
All our specialists are qualified to provide you with Invisalign treatment, using a sequence of clear aligners. The advantages of Invisalign are:
We specialise in providing lingual braces, in particular the custom-made incognito appliances. Lingual treatment has been available at our practice since 2003, with incognito being the option of choice since 2007
The incognito lingual system is a fixed brace that is fitted on the inside of your teeth, making it almost completely invisible.
It works in the same way as a fixed train-track brace, so unlike Invisalign, it is able to correct your bite, no matter how bad it is to start with.
An essential part of any orthodontic treatment is to ensure that your teeth remain straight to keep your smile looking great after your treatment.
Our practice provides both removable and fixed retainers, to help you with this
A removable brace can be used to correct bite problems in young children (6-9 years old), before they reach an age when they benefit from fixed brace.
We only use digital x-ray equipment at Herts Orthodontics, which reduces the x-ray dose that you receive when being examined.
The x-rays are delivered to our computers instantly to allow a streamlined consultation for you.
It also allows us to e-mail copies of the x-rays should the need arise.
Our orthodontists are registered providers of invisalign aligners and will happy to advise you in the suitabiilty of your case for invisalign treatment,
Our specialist practice offers all types of cosmetic orthodontic appliances, including lingual fixed braces, invisalign, and tooth-coloured fixed braces. We also provide NHS treatment to children.
