Fang-tastic! Our Smile of the Month for Summer


Smile of Month Sept 16

Our Smile of the Month for August is Chloe who has just finished her brace treatment at Cleveland Orthodontics.

She is pleased with the result…let’s see the pics!

About Chloe’s brace treatment

Chloe qualified for NHS brace treatment as her teeth were quite crooked. She was most concerned about her upper canine teeth ( her “fangs”) which were both quite prominent.

All new patients to Cleveland Orthodontics are assessed by a specialist orthodontist. When we saw Chloe, we decided that she needed two upper teeth to be extracted followed by metal fixed braces. You can read more about when you might need extractions for orthodontic treatment.

The treatment lasted 22 months from start to finish.


After braces are removed, it will be very important for Chloe to wear her removable retainers on a long term basis so that the gaps do not re-appear. There is also an option of having a fixed retainers glued behind the teeth just to make sure!

You can read more about retainers and why we use them.
