Teeth Straightening

FAQ'S

I want the quickest, cheapest and the most discrete option

We have many different brace options so you and I can discuss the brace that most suits your needs

Can I get braces on the NHS?

There are circumstances that you can get NHS braces as an adult. It usually goes hand in hand with face/jaw surgery and will require a referral to the hospital. We will refer you if we think your treatment could be carried out by an NHS orthodontist.

I don’t want the treatment to go on for years, I want Fast Braces

If you are suitable, the treatment can be completed in as little as 10 weeks, so it doesn’t need to go on for years.

There are so many adverts now for dental braces, how do I make my decision?

Dr Grant is one of the few Platinum providers for Invisalign in Exeter and surrounding area so you are in safe hands.

But my teeth look so yellow as well

With many of the straightening treatments, for example Invisalign, we offer free teeth whitening. So you get a dazzling white smile to go with your straight teeth. A complete smile makeover!

Having impressions taken makes me gag

We have an Itero scanner so no more gagging impressions. Your braces can be made from a scan.

The thought of having my teeth out terrifies me

We do not always have to take teeth out. Many Teeth Straightening Treatments are aimed at the non-extraction approach so if you are scared of this, it can be avoided. We need to see you to establish your options.

I work full time, getting time off work is a nightmare

We do Saturday clinics in Topsham, Exeter, so your weekly timetable need not be affected.

I won’t be able to afford Invisible Braces

We provide finance so the payments can be spread over time to suit your budget. Terms and Conditions apply

There are so many adverts and different types of Clear Braces out there. What are the options for teeth straightening?

Some patients can have many different types of braces, other patients are not suitable. This means you need a consultation to be advised which brace is best. All the options will be discussed with you before you make a choice.

Can I straighten my teeth without braces?

Invisalign is a type of brace but it is just more discrete and a popular adult brace option.

Can I straighten my own teeth?

Please do not try any home remedies. There is a serious risk of losing your teeth. Dentists and orthodontists are trained to establish how the teeth can move safely and by how far, making you a beautiful smile limiting the risks.

I’m worried I will look silly, like a teenager, and I’ll be laughed at for wearing adult braces

Braces are not invisible, they are clear, but we have many discrete braces, for example Invisalign. This means you can wear them at work and during meetings and telephone calls. They can also be removed if necessary. Teeth Straightening is not like it used to be.

I’m worried Clear Aligner Braces are too expensive

Adult braces can cost from only £1500, depending on the number of teeth being aligned. So you don’t have to spend many thousands of pounds aligning all your teeth. We call it “Social Six Orthodontics”

I am not sure what to do. I have seen braces that can be delivered to my door

We carry out a full orthodontic assessment. This is much more than a standard check-up. We make sure the braces are suitable for your teeth, gums, smile, face & bone structure. We make sure the outcome is what you expect. A smile scan is only a possibility. If there are issues mid treatment, we are here for you. Dentist fitted – Dentist assessed – Dentist supported.
