The first 48 hours of having my brace fixed and each time it was tightened was a little painful but it was a good feeling knowing my teeth were moving into position. I had a couple of incidents when my brace needed fixing & I was quickly seen by Dr Ward to mend it. My fixed brace treatment lasted 11 months so it wasn’t long to perfect my teeth and smile. I’m really pleased with the result. Thank you Thames Orthodontics.

I was referred to Thames Orthodontics by my dentist, with a view to undergoing a bite realignment. I had imagined that this was a procedure designed specifically for children and so I was delighted to learn, at my first appointment, that bite correction was certainly possible at my age – although the process could understandably take a little longer.
The initial detailed examination was carried out and a fully detailed and costed treatment plan was provided. I attended regularly at differing intervals of time,for the progress achieved by the fitted braces to be checked, and, where necessary, adjustments could be made. The various stages of the ongoing treatment were carefully explained and the work carried out at each appointment was performed most skilfully.
The reception staff were extremely welcoming – both on the telephone and at each appointment. All queries were answered fully.
I am now at the final stage of treatment, with my last check-up due in six months’ time. I am very pleased with the outcome and wish to convey my sincere thanks to Dr Paul Ward and to the whole team for what has proved to be a very gratifying experience.

The difference to my teeth is amazing and has made a huge difference to my smile and how often I show it! It will change lots and I’m very happy. Thanks for all your hard work.

I had always disliked my crooked teeth and was self conscious about my smile. Someone I met told me about braces that went behind your teeth and were undetected. That seemed perfect for me, at age 58, and I went for a consultation.
The treatment I was given at Thames Orthodontics was always friendly and professional. One year and four months later I am absolutely thrilled with the result, I can smile with confidence.

I had my braces on for about two years, at first I thought it was too long but before I know it the time had gone by so fast and I was having them taken off. I am so pleased with my results; I love smiling and have had so many compliments! I would advise everyone to have braces if needed, it is so worth the wait and every penny spent! Especially as your teeth are for life!

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for my new smile. Two years in braces was definitely worth it. Secondly, thank you for making the whole process as worry free as possible even when I was travelling back from Bristol for appointments. Everyone was very friendly and reassuring right from day one which made life with braces so much easier. I’m so pleased with the result; I would recommend Thames Orthodontics to anyone.

The lingual braces were far more comfortable than I expected and didn’t rub at all or change the way I spoke. I think it would have affected my confidence to wear braces on the front of my teeth at 21 and to be honest it really wasn’t an option for me. I went through two and a half years of university with them and people never knew I had braces unless I told them
Keeping them clean was easy and for the most part I could just forget I was wearing them.
As a medical student, it was sometimes difficult for me to know where I would be based ahead of time but Thames Orthodontics were always flexible with my appointments and would ring me the day before as a reminder.
My teeth look so different to how they looked before and I’m really pleased with the results! I would definitely recommend them to anybody.

Thank you so much for my lingual treatment, I’m delighted with the results. I can’t fault the service I received from Thames Orthodontics. The early morning appointments were particularly useful for me so I could go in before work. I was always greeted by smiling faces whenever I went to the practice and I also really liked the way Stephanie explained to me each step of the treatment. Thank you to everyone at Thames!!

I had been unhappy with the look for my teeth for many years but the thought of having to wear a traditional brace for possibly two years or more put me off having them straightened – until I read an article about Thames Orthodontics and lingual braces!
Stephanie explained how lingual braces work and it seemed too good to be true, I could have my teeth straightened without anyone realising!! They are a great team, very professional, putting you at ease immediately and giving you help and encouragement when the going gets tough and emergency appointments are always available should the need arise.
For me the first few weeks were a bit troublesome, but I overcame the initial difficulties and now 15 months later my great smile and increased confidence has made it all worthwhile.

Thank you for your help and assistance in giving me the perfect smile!!!! I had the Incognito treatment which was simply amazing. Nobody ever noticed them and it became the norm after 2 weeks of wearing them.
The practice itself are always incredibly friendly, helpful, organised and professional, I could not recommend them enough.
Thanks for everything.

It took less than a week to get used to the feel of the brace. My speech wasn’t affected at all. The only problem I had was with eating. Initially my teeth were very sensitive and biting food felt uncomfortable. But after the first week I could eat more or less anything, although corn on the cob and apple always got caught in the wire – but sweets and chocolate were fine! Nobody knew I had the brace and now my teeth look great. I’d definitely recommend it.
George – Aged 13 25th December 2015
Before I got my braces, I felt very insecure about my teeth. They were crooked and stuck out a lot. I was always reluctant to smile because I did not want anyone to see them. However, now they are perfect! I am so happy and I am so much more confident when I smile. Plus, it did not even hurt as much as I thought it would. Wearing braces was a small price to pay to gain the teeth I have now. Thank you very much.
Brittame Srivas 25th December 2015
When I first decided I needed my teeth straightened, I really didn’t want braces that would be on show. Stephanie told me all about ‘Incognito’ braces which were perfect as they couldn’t be seen. Now they are off the change is amazing, better than I ever thought it could be. The small amount of pain was 100% worth it. Having friendly staff made the whole experience so much easier and calmer! Thank you so much!
Hannah Morris 25th December 2015
I would like to express my gratitude to the service provided by you and the staff at Thames Orthodontics. Being in my twenties and deciding to wear braces was a big decision but I can honestly say it is the best money I have ever spent. The treatment was superb and the reception staff always so helpful on the phone whenever I had a query or booking the appointments. It’s made quite a big change to my life and it is so nice to be able to smile confidentially in photographs!
Thanks for everything.
