A Walsall orthodontic specialist

Straightening your teeth is a very serious matter, so only a trained professional should do it. We can offer a full range of orthodontic treatments here at Allsopp Dental because Dr Allsopp is a Specialist Orthodontist. He is one of only about 1,200 in the UK, in fact.

Dr Allsopp has completed over 1,500 Invisalign® cases and more than 200 cases of lingual braces.

At our practice, Dr Allsopp can complete orthodontic evaluations without messy dental impressions as we take digital scans using the iTero digital scanner.

Orthodontic treatments at Allsopp Dental

Dr Allsopp can provide the following orthodontic treatments:

Clear Aligners

Are you looking for an alternative to traditional braces? 

Aligners are clear thin plastic trays that are made to fit each individual patient. They come in sets that include upper and lower trays. 

Clear aligners fit nice and snug over your teeth. Each new aligner is different than the last and applies gentle pressure to your teeth. This pressure is what moves your teeth and gets you closer to achieving your smile goals.

You will scan your teeth every week using the Dental Monitoring app which allows us to check on your progress remotely. After we examine the photos of your teeth, we will let you know when to move on to your next set of aligners.

The number of aligners needed to straighten teeth varies from patient to patient.

Lingual braces

‘Lingual’ refers to the inner surface of your teeth which is right next to your tongue. Braces bonded to the insides of your teeth are 100% invisible. There are less than a dozen orthodontists in the UK who are certified in this technique-sensitive orthodontic treatment and Dr Allsopp is one of them.

Fixed buccal braces

These are the classic ‘metal’ or ‘colour’ braces you have likely seen before. They fasten onto the outsides of teeth (called the ‘buccal' surface in dentistry).

We offer both metal and ceramic fixed braces at Allsopp Dental. After examining your smile, Dr Allsopp will recommend the type that will work best for you.

Benefits of clear aligners

Metal-free

Clear aligners are practically invisible and no one will notice that you are wearing them.

Removable

You can take out your aligners for special occasions when you don’t want anyone to see them, just to be safe.

Easy oral hygiene

There are no wires to clean around when you wear aligners. Simply take them out to brush and floss your teeth, as normal.

No diet restrictions

Because clear aligners are removable, you can take them out for meals and eat whatever you like without damaging them.

Dr Allsopp provides clear aligner treatment for mild-to-moderate cases of crooked teeth for both teens and adults. We offer two brands here at Allsopp Dental: Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™.

ClearCorrect™ aligners are thin and made from a BPA-free plastic. The Straumann company we trust for our dental implants also produces ClearCorrect™ aligners.

Invisalign® is a popular brand of clear aligners, but they work just like ClearCorrect™. At Allsopp Dental, we are Invisalign® Diamond Providers. 

After examining your teeth, Dr Allsopp will let you know which type of clear aligners he feels will work best for you. Clear aligners are suitable for both teens and adults.

Why Allsopp Dental for your orthodontic treatment?

We utilise the latest orthodontic technology to ensure that your treatment is fast and comfortable.

We are the all-in-one dental practice for all of your dental care needs. We offer a wide variety of orthodontic services alongside a comprehensive range of other dental treatments, including dental implants and facial fillers.

Free remote consultations

Would you like to find out if braces are right for you? You can do that for free and without even leaving your home.

All you have to do is fill in a short form and then send us pictures of your smile. We will then arrange a remote consultation to discuss our treatment recommendations.

After your remote initial consultation, you can book an in-practice visit with Dr Allsopp. This visit will include all the scans, X-rays and other diagnostic imaging necessary to create a personalised treatment plan.

The real beauty of straight teeth

A smile full of straight and tidy teeth is a beautiful sight. Aesthetics is a very popular reason that people straighten their teeth. However, the benefits of orthodontic treatment extend beyond outer appearances.

These benefits include:

  • Lower risk of dental disease
  • Healthier gums
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Reduced enamel wear
  • Increased self-confidence

Making a success of your orthodontic treatment

We strongly urge you to do at least these four things to ensure that you complete your orthodontic treatment quickly, safely and successfully:

1

Brush and floss your teeth daily and use a fluoride mouthrinse.

2

Avoid foods that can damage your braces.

3

If you are having Invisalign® treatment, wear your clear aligners exactly as directed.

4

Come to all of your orthodontic checkup and adjustment appointments.

Naturally, you want to get the most out of your orthodontic treatment once it is complete. We recommend that you wear a custom-fit orthodontic retainer to maintain your new smile alignment.

We want to see you wearing a smile you can be proud of and we are ready to help you achieve that. Allsopp Dental combines modern orthodontic technology and techniques with years of specialist orthodontic expertise to deliver a truly unique treatment experience. 

Common questions about braces

  • Can I get braces on the NHS?

    Orthodontic treatment for adults is not typically covered on the NHS, except where there is an obvious health concern that requires orthodontic treatment. Children under the age of 18 may qualify for braces if there is an obvious need for treatment. We currently have extremely high demand for braces on the NHS for under 18s which has unfortunately been lengthened by COVID-19. Please contact us should you qualify for treatment and we will be able to discuss the best treatment options for you

  • What are the best type of braces?

    There are advantages and disadvantages to all kinds of braces. The most important thing is to determine which type of braces are right for you. Dr Allsopp can help you find out if you book a consultation with us.

  • Can my child have clear aligner treatment?

    Yes, we can provide clear aligners treatment for qualifying young patients. Clear aligners like ClearCorrect™ or Invisalign® are treatment alternatives to wearing fixed braces. After examining your child’s smile, Dr Allsopp will let you know which treatment is best for your child. Aligner treatment is available only a private basis and not on the NHS.

  • What if my braces break?

    If just one bracket comes off, then it is safe to wait until your next orthodontic appointment with Dr Allsopp to have it replaced. You can cover sharp wires with orthodontic wax to keep them from poking you. Call us if you are not sure what else you should do or if multiple brackets come off.

  • How do I clean around my braces?

    Oral hygiene is extremely important during orthodontic treatment, but it is difficult to clean around fixed orthodontic appliances. An oral irrigator (water flosser) or powered toothbrush can make the job easier. Our team at Allsopp Dental would be happy to show you some simple and effective techniques for cleaning around brackets and wires.

  • How long will I have to wear my orthodontic retainer?

    You should wear your retainer for as long as you want to keep your teeth nice and straight. That is to say, you should plan to wear your retainer for the rest of your life. Evidence shows that our teeth continue to shift as we age, and wearing a retainer will help you maintain the alignment of your teeth for many years. You may start out wearing your retainer for most of the day and then eventually cut back to only wearing it at night. Check in with Dr Allsopp regularly to find out how often you should wear your retainer.

  • What if I need dental treatment while wearing a braces?

    We will check your teeth thoroughly for signs of decay before beginning your orthodontic treatment. It is easiest to repair teeth before the braces go on. You can keep your teeth healthy during treatment by avoiding sweets and sugary drinks. But if you do end up needing general dentistry treatment in the meantime, we can help you arrange that right here at Allsopp Dental.

  • Is it too late for me to get braces?

    It is never too late to begin orthodontic treatment! People of all ages can experience the benefits of straightening their teeth and we offer a little something for everyone in our range of orthodontic treatments here at Allsopp Dental. It is ideal to begin orthodontic treatment in adolescence, but it is still possible to move teeth in adult smiles, as well.
