Orthodontist in Hornchurch, Essex

Teeth straightening with fixed braces

If you're looking for excellent yet affordable orthodontic treatment near you in Essex from a highly rated and experienced dentist, our modern Hornchurch clinic can help.

Our highly skilled orthodontic team is led by Dr Saleh Aria (GDC No. 75163), who has over 19 years extensive dentistry experience.

Dr Aria is proud to be an approved Platinum Elite Provider of Invisalign (which means he has treated between 81 and 150 Invisalign patients, from all parts of Essex, in the last 12 months).

An orthodontist will advise patients of the best teeth straightening option for their needs. The conventional way to straighten teeth is to use fixed braces.

This involves fixing a small metal or tooth coloured bracket to each tooth and then attaching a wire to slowly move them into the desired place.

How do orthodontics work?

The wire is attached by very small elastic bands called modules. These come in a range of colours including a clear option.

The wires are adjusted regularly until your teeth have moved into the desired straightened position.

When do I need to see an orthodontist?

Both adults and teenagers can see an orthodontist to straighten their teeth. When children become teenagers many will have all their adult teeth come through and their dentist will normally advise whether they are ready to see an orthodontist.

Why see an orthodontist?

An orthodontist will assess a patients’ current smile and check all the teeth before advising the options available. Not all modern teeth straightening methods such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are suitable for every patient.

Some patients have severely crooked teeth or overcrowd teeth which require further orthodontic treatments or even dental treatments before the straightening process begins.

"I have been a patient at the Harrow dental practice for a couple of years now, I started off having regular check ups and hygiene appointments but more recently I have almost completed my invisalign journey.

Dr Aria and Aun Shirazi have been great throughout my Invisalign treatment, they are both very professional and knowledgeable and I am really pleased with the result so far. I also couldn’t recommend my hygienist, Lisa, enough - I look forward to visiting her every time & having a nice chat whilst also leaving with lovely white teeth & great dental care advice.

The front of house staff and dental nurses are also very polite and accommodating too - overall a great dental practice :)"

"I was a little worried about protection from COVID-19, but the measures they have put in place and the investment in a virus removal system, soon put any fears to rest. I am also very pleased with the Invisalign treatment I have received from Dr Aria.

I would highly recommend his surgery for safe professional treatment."
