Orthodontics is the treatment of crooked or misaligned teeth.
This treatment process often carried out with braces, can be used to treat problems such as overcrowding, crooked or protruding teeth, and problems with the bite of the teeth. We have a range of orthodontic braces to treat all manner of conditions and to suit different budgets. With 12 months of interest-free credit, our orthodontic treatments in Warrington start from just £200 per month.

- Is the price of the orthodontic treatment a deciding factor?
What does orthodontics in Warrington involve?
All orthodontic consultations will start with a discussion about what you hope to achieve with orthodontic braces. Our orthodontics team are highly experienced and treats a range of problems.
If you are looking for a comfortable and convenient way of straightening your teeth then Invisalign® might be the answer. This innovative orthodontics treatment uses almost invisible aligners which can be removed when eating or brushing your teeth. Book a consultation at our orthodontist in Warrington today to assess your suitability for the Invisalign® orthodontic braces treatment.
Whilst everyone was having orthodontics in their teens, my teeth were lovely and straight. It wasn’t until all my friends were having their braces taken off that my teeth started to become overcrowded and slip behind each other.
I came to Dental Solutions for a consultation and discussed the different options for tooth straightening. I felt that I was almost too old for traditional metal braces, especially as my friends now had lovely straight white teeth. I decided instead to go for the Invisalign option.
My treatment only took 8 months from start to finish -the time went so quickly. Sometimes the clear aligners had little white dots on them where additional force was needed to move or rotate an individual tooth. I felt rather conscious of their dotty appearance on my smile! However I took my Mums’ advice of mentioning the dots to people up front – however nobody seemed remotely bothered by them so I needn’t have worried.
It was also a little different to get used to taking the aligners out to eat, then brushing before popping them back in. But again it was a habit that I got used to.
The dentist was a perfectionist, at the end of my treatment she did some final refinements to achieve a perfect smile, including some shaping of a couple of teeth to improve my smile symmetry and some whitening to brighten their colour.
I am so delighted with the results – people really compliment me on my smile now and as a result I smile a lot more than I did before Invisalign treatment- I feel as though I have more confidence too.
I really appreciate the job that the Dental Solutions team did to improve my smile- I’m so happy that I decided to use Invisalign too, it was perfect for me.

Back to Teeth Straightening
How long does it take for teeth to settle with Braces?
Although fitting braces shouldn’t be a painful process, it is normal for them to be uncomfortable and to cause mild pain during the first 1-2 weeks. This is because your teeth need to get used to the new pressure that’s being put on them in order to shift them to their new position. You can manage any discomfort with painkillers and should find that your symptoms ease and your teeth begin to settle after a week or two.
What are the don'ts with Braces?
Braces are relatively straightforward, but there are some things you should avoid doing to prevent damage being caused to the braces, which include:
- Avoiding certain foods that are very hard, chewy or sticky
- Not chewing on foreign objects such as pens and fingernails
- Drink a lot of very sugary drinks
Your orthodontist in Warrington will be able to advise you during your consultation on the best ways to maintain your braces.
What preparation is required for Braces?
The process of getting braces fitted is usually fairly simple and doesn’t always require much in the way of preparation. However, sometimes teeth will need to be extracted in order for braces to be fitted, or you may require other treatments first if your oral health isn’t at its best. It is worth noting, however, that we will always try to avoid removing teeth if we can, and this will usually only be done if there’s severe overcrowding.
How long does it take for Braces to work?
There is no universal set time for orthodontics in Warrington, and the amount of time your braces will take to work will largely depend on the severity of your condition. For example, if you have a very misaligned or wonky smile, your treatment is likely to take much longer than someone with relatively aligned teeth that just require some small shifts.
Your orthodontist will be able to give you a clearer idea of exactly how long your braces treatment is likely to take during your initial consultation.
