Orthodontic treatment for adults can be split into two types: comprehensive treatment and shorter term or “limited objectives” treatment. At your first consultation, one of our specialist orthodontists will discuss the treatment types with you and give you advice on which is most suitable for your issue.

At Park Lane Orthodontics we provide a range of discreet braces and aligners for adult treatment. This includes the Incognito lingual brace, or 2D lingual brace, which are fitted behind your teeth and hardly visible, cosmetic ‘barely there’ clear fixed braces and Invisalign. For some simple orthodontic problems, our range of Smile Rapide short term braces, can give you a better smile in as little as six to nine months.
