Orthodontics from West Heath Dental Practice, Birmingham, transforms smiles by naturally restoring the harmony and balance of the teeth – and the results can be truly life changing!

As well as treating children, we are seeing more and more adults opting for braces who have spent years hiding their smiles and hating their teeth. Orthodontic treatment uses braces or aligners to gently reposition the teeth and braces are ideal for crowded or crossed teeth, gappy smiles and jaws that do not bite together correctly. Advances in orthodontic treatment means patients can choose tooth-coloured brackets and clear aligners that are more discreet.

We offer a range of appliances including non-extraction orthodontics. As the name suggests, our patients do not have to have healthy teeth removed before they start orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth. This type of orthodontics appeals to our ethos of cherishing teeth and means that children from as young as four years old can start treatment. By starting at a young age we are able to work with the child's growing and developing jaws, making natural spaces for their teeth and thereby avoiding the need for extraction.

We are also delighted to be able to offer our patients fast acting orthodontics that result in straighter teeth within a matter of months. Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that straightens the top and bottom front six teeth using clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured wires. The treatment works much like clear aligners but tooth movement is more predictable and usually more than twice as quick.
