Do you need orthodontic treatment?

Our Surrey dentists use orthodontic treatment systems to correct a range of oral problems:

Orthodontic treatments can be used to target:

  • Oral issues: If you suffer from an overbite, underbite, overcrowded teeth, crooked teeth or jaw misalignment, you may be affected by eating or speech problems.
  • Malocclusion/bad bite: Malocclusion refers to misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches, meaning they do not perfectly align when they approach each other as the jaws close.

Malocclusion can often lead to oral health problems in the future so it is important that it is treated using the right orthodontic procedure.

In these instances, we use orthodontic treatments to alter the positioning of the teeth so you end up with a more attractive and better functioning smile.

Braces for adults

As brace treatments have advanced so greatly, adults now have a huge amount of choices when it comes to finding the right straightening solution for them.

We have many discreet, short-term options which are designed specifically for adults who don’t want to wear the traditional, obvious braces.

Our practice in Surrey is proud to offer the latest and most innovative systems, which include:

  • 6 Month Smiles: Takes six months.
  • Lingual Braces: Takes 12-18 months.
  • Inman Aligners: Takes 6-18 weeks.
  • Invisalign for Adults: Takes from three months.

Braces for children and teens

If you target issues during childhood when your jaw is still developing, treatment can be more straightforward. We recommend targeting issues as soon as you become aware of them. 

We can offer several straightening systems for children, some discreet and some more traditional.

Invisalign First has proven successful for little mouths as it is designed with children in mind and their hectic mini schedules.

The recommendation is that children should have treatment aged between 7 and 13. However, not all hope is lost if you do not receive treatment during this time.

Going under orthodontic treatment as a teen is often many of our adult patients wish they did at the time. But due to stereotypes about a mouth full of metal, getting braces in the previous decade was not an enjoyable experience.

Now, teenagers can straighten their teeth with clear, removable aligner systems like Invisalign Teen, which straightens teeth in half the time. However, if your son or daughter is over the age of 18 and likes the idea of clear aligners, other types of Invisalign might be better.

The benefits of orthodontics

If you have any of the issues mentioned thus far, it is vital you have your teeth treated by a dentist to decipher what orthodontic treatment may be best for you.

It is important to treat issues as soon as possible since misaligned or improperly positioned teeth leave you with a higher risk of experiencing tooth decay and gingivitis.

Generally, orthodontics is an effective treatment method that can be used to:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Target misalignment between the teeth and jaw
  • Straighten crooked teeth, repair improper bites
  • Improve oral function (such as eating or speech)

Ortho FAQs

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry dedicated to the proper alignment of the teeth and jaw.

Straightening the teeth and jaw can improve the appearance of your teeth and facial features respectively, but orthodontic treatment can also enhance the overall functionality of your mouth.

Orthodontics specialises in dentistry that focuses on correcting bites, occlusion, and general tooth realignment.

The main aim of orthodontic treatment is to align the positioning of the teeth, straighten your smile and leave you feeling happier and more confident than ever.

Additionally, orthodontic treatment is popularly used for cosmetic purposes.

If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look or simply want to improve a particular aspect of your smile, then there are many non-invasive procedures available.

Talk to us about cosmetic options.

The price of braces varies, as it depends on what system you choose and how long it will take to straighten your smile.

You can browse our costs of Invisalign here, however, for a general understanding, our brace systems can cost from £1,000 to £4,900.

We also offer 0% finance for 12 months and have longer terms for patients looking to spread the cost of their treatment.

A specialist in orthodontics has completed a three-year postgraduate study after graduating as a dentist. 

Our orthodontists have undergone further training from the Royal College of Surgeons, and you will find their names appear on the list of the General Dental Council (GDC).

The additional training allows us to take on complex orthodontic cases.

Orthodontic treatment for children usually starts around the ages of 7-9, especially when there are problems involving the jaws. 

However, the most common ages to begin treatment are around 11 to 14 years of age when the permanent teeth have fully erupted. 

There is no age limit, however, the NHS will not cover braces for adults.

You’re never too old to upgrade your smile.

Sometimes this might be necessary to remove teeth to achieve the best result possible – this is particularly common with overcrowded teeth. 

However, please bear in mind that we have incredible technology which often means that extractions are not always necessary.

No professional referral is required from your dentist, you can contact our practice directly if you have any concerns about the function or appearance of your teeth.

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
