Many people struggle with the effects of crooked teeth, not because they’re painful, more because they can put a huge dent in your self-esteem. Our smile is critical to how many of us feel about our looks, and this is not simply a question of vanity, it has a massive impact on how we see ourselves.
As well as the aesthetic side of things, crooked teeth can also make it very difficult to keep your teeth and gums clean because its nigh on impossible to brush in-between. This can cause a lasting and damaging impact on our health, leading to gum disease and tooth loss.
There are many solutions to consider so call to make your consultation appointment and speak to a specialist about the options they’d suggest to give you the best results possible.

At Acorn Dental, we appreciate your time is valuable but we also want you to get the best result. In order for us to help you achieve your dream smile, we have a clear treatment process outlined below, so you know what to expect when you embark on your orthodontic journey with us.
During your orthodontic treatment, we aim to see you every 8-12 weeks to monitor your progress. This may be to provide you with the next set of Invisalign aligners or to change the wire in your fixed brace. The rest of the time you are responsible for the care of your appliance, and contacting us should you have any problems.
The orthodontic treatment is completed once you are happy with the final positioning of your teeth, and it is safe for us to stop the treatment. You will be provide with a removable and/or fixed retainer to help keep your teeth in their new position. We then like to review you, at no further charge, at around 3 months after completion of your orthodontic treatment to ensure everything is ok.
Orthodontic treatment can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with cosmetic restorative treatment to treat the following problems:
Simple alignment cases can be completed within 6-12 months. More complex cases take on average 18-24 months.
Patients may feel slight discomfort in the first week or so of orthodontic treatment as the bone begins to soften and the teeth begin to move, but its nothing a painkiller can’t handle!
Invisalign treatment costs range from £1200 to £2000 per arch.
Fixed orthodontic treatment costs range from £1000 to £1800 per arch.
