Teeth straightening

Many people have crooked and/or over-crowded teeth, which can affect the way they look and the way their teeth bite together, as well as their confidence. Having orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth can make a massive difference to your smile.

Orthodontic treatment is not just for children and teenagers. Increasing numbers of adults are realising the advantages of having their teeth straightened, and wearing braces has become increasingly common amongst those in their 20’s, 30’s and beyond.

At Chequers Dental in Salisbury we are delighted to offer a choice of the latest orthodontic treatments. Modern technology and techniques mean that orthodontic treatment can be much quicker, easier and more discreet than in the past.

The orthodontic treatments that we offer are:


This method consists of a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners. These fit over your teeth, gradually moving and straightening them. The aligners are discreet and removable. You can eat and drink as normal during treatment, and can clean your teeth easily.

The Inman Aligner

For suitable cases, treatment with the Inman Aligner is usually much faster and also cheaper than alternative orthodontic techniques. The treatment only takes 6-16 weeks and because it's removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

Lingual braces

These are fitted on the inside of your teeth rather than the outside, which means that they are completely out of view. Lingual braces are perfect for image-conscious people but may take a little getting used to.

Tooth coloured braces

Fitted to the front of your teeth, these are made of ceramic blocks and a metal wire, so are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. These are ideal for those who still want to look good during treatment, but who are not suitable for Invisalign or lingual braces.
