Orthodontics

With over 40 years experience of treating adults and children - Dr.Miller specialises in "Gentle Orthodontics". He combines modern orthodontic techniques with a strong preference for improving the ‘arch shape’ whenever possible and not extracting teeth. Because your upper jaw is not ‘set back’ this produces a much better facial profile with a less obvious nose. It may also result in fewer sinus related problems and easier breathing.

Dr Miller may use a combination of "Clear Aligners", "Train Tracks" and "Arch Expanding Braces" but whatever the treatment protocol, he carefully monitors the treatment progress and adjusts your appliances to minimise both the time of treatment and any discomfort.

Where appropriate, Dr. Miller uses "Clear Aligners". These are almost invisible bespoke, firm and thin, alignment coverings that can lead to treatment times as short as 3 months. When "Train Tracks" are required, he prefers to use porcelaine brackets that again tend to make your appliance less visible.

This treatment is suitable for children and adults of almost any age! Orthodontics can be used for the straightening of crooked teeth, alignment of the gum line, closing spaces between teeth, correcting flared teeth.

Clear Aligners

Comfortable, clear and removable, West Malling Dental "Clear Aligners" are a highly effective way to transform your smile without interrupting your lifestyle. This form of Orthodontics is near invisible on your teeth and because you hardly notice you are wearing them, for many they are the ideal orthodontic treatment. Millions of people worldwide have chosen this system for good reason.

Are you ready for your new smile?

If you decide to use only "Clear Aligner" treatment, we will initially take an impression of your teeth. We'll use these impression to make models. From these, we can visualise how you'll look after treatment.

You'll have the chance to make any changes your feel are necessary, and we'll workout how many steps are needed to achieve your desired result.

Using your aligners

You will need to wear your aligners for most of the day in order for them to be effective. The more you wear them, the shorter your treatment time will be.

As a rule, you should only remove them for eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. However, this is a flexible treatment, so if you need to remove them for a short time, for example for a special occasion, you can do so without hampering your treatment.

We will advise you on how to care for your aligners, and will also tell you how long you should wear each aligner before moving on to the next one.

Your treatment will be reviewed at regular intervals to make sure you remain on course.
