Are you looking to improve your smile?
Would you like to straighten your teeth?
Do you wish that you had your teeth straightened when you were a child?
Do you feel that your teeth are moving and drifting unfavourably?
Do you have a child who needs orthodontic treatment but the treatment cannot be provided on the NHS?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, we can help!
Here at Waterside Dentalcare there are different orthodontic treatments available and we can discuss which would be the most appropriate one for you. Orthodontics is the most ethical way to straighten teeth and can achieve fantastic results.
What are the options?
Invisalign is a clear aligner orthodontic treatment which moves the front 10 teeth on either arch. One of our dentists Dr Hannah McHugh has undergone extra training in order to provide Invisalign and we are seeing great results. We firstly scan your teeth with our digital impression scanner and take clinical photos. This allows us to provide a simulation of the final planned outcome so Hannah can show you what we are working towards before starting the treatment. Invisalign provide a course of clear removable aligners which should be worn for at least 22 hours per day, taking them out only to eat and clean your teeth.

Specialist Orthodontist Dr Natalie Read can provide fixed braces for more comprehensive treatment. More complex tooth movement and control can be obtained using fixed braces, especially in the hands of a specialist orthodontist. Natalie has trained for 10 years to become a specialist orthodontist and is expertly placed to deliver the orthodontic care that you require. Natalie works at Royal Cornwall Hospital providing treatment for children and is a private orthodontist at Waterside Dentalcare providing Adult Orthodontics and Orthodontic treatment for children who do not meet the criteria for treatment under the NHS.
We can offer options of metal or ceramic brackets; at your initial consultation we will show you what these look like and discuss the right option for you. We will then book you in for regular appointments with Natalie to carry out your orthodontic treatment. With our expert team at Waterside Dentalcare, we are ideally placed to provide solutions to patients who need more complex treatment involving both orthodontic and restorative care.
