Smile of the Month: September


Smile of Month Sept 17 banner

Chloe is one of our patients here at Cleveland Orthodontics. She has just had her braces removed!

Quite a difference from start to finish, as you can see…

About Chloe’s brace treatment

Flora qualified for NHS brace treatment as her teeth were quite crooked. She also had a “crossbite” with one of her front teeth at the top trapped behind the lower teeth.

All new patients to Cleveland Orthodontics are assessed by a specialist orthodontist. When we saw Chloe, we decided that she needed a combination of removable and fixed metal braces.

The treatment lasted 28 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.

Here is what Chloe had to say…

I didn’t like anything about my teeth, ie how crooked they were and how hard it was to brush them.

My new smile makes me feel so much more confident and happier. I can now smile, laugh and talk without worrying what people will think.

I am now proud of my smile!
