This can be either provided in the practice by our trained associates Dr Amita Aggarwal and Dr Peter Lindholm, or else referred to an external specialist practice or hospital.
We offer a range of orthodontic treatment, suitable for both adults and children. Choose from the different options of an Inman Aligner (below for more details on these), clear aligners (see below), or fixed braces with metal or ceramic brackets (see below).
Orthodontic treatment can do more than just straighten your teeth. Having a good smile increases your confidence and can have a positive effect on your career and social life. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of dental decay and gum disease.
All orthodontic treatment will need a form of long term retainer at the end.
Dr Amita Aggarwal is a certified Inman Aligner practitioner.
The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It is a pioneering orthodontic appliance designed to correct problems affecting the front teeth and adult relapse.
Even if your teeth are heavily discoloured or have large fillings and do require veneers, the aligner can be used to straighten them before veneer preparations. This reduces the amount of tooth reduction necessary for the veneer preparations.
Dr Peter Lindholm offers Invisalign clear aligners which can transform your smile without anyone even knowing that you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment. The brace is the perfect option for those who have always wanted to have treatment, but have been put off by the appearance of fixed braces.
Fixed appliances are often referred to as "train track braces". These are small metal or clear ceramic brackets attached to the surfaces of the teeth and connected with wires.
We refer to specialist orthodontic practices in Reading, Tilehurst, and also use the Orthodontic department of the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
