Best Orthodontist in London Waterloo
How do you find the best Orthodontist in London?
Many dentists provide Invisalign braces in London as part of the services they provide. Strangely, a dentist doesn’t have to have an orthodontics or teeth straightening qualification to provide Invisalign braces. Any dentist can undertake a quick course with Invisalign and start to provide Invisalign braces to patients. If you want to find the best Orthodontist in London, we suggest following the below general guidelines –
- First, enter ‘Best Orthodontist in London’ on Google. Google will provide a list of results in your local area. Of the results that come up, check if the dental surgery you are keen on is a general dental practice or if it focuses especially on orthodontics and Invisalign braces. Browse sections of their site that are focused solely on orthodontic treatments and invisible braces. Are these web pages detailed and well developed with content and treatment information. Dental surgeries that focus on orthodontics and Invisalign braces tend to have well developed and detailed web pages for these services – these dental surgeries will also typically have more experienced and skilled orthodontic dentists. By therefore finding a dental practice that focuses on orthodontic braces, you will help to ensure you find a very experienced, if not the best orthodontist in London.
- Once you have managed to identify a few dental practices that focus largely on orthodontic braces, try to ascertain the qualifications and experience of the orthodontic dentists that work in the practice. Identify dentists on the ‘Team’ page that have orthodontics experience and determine whether they have undertaken orthodontic courses – perhaps post-graduate degrees specifically in orthodontics – an MSc in orthodontics for example.
- Find and read Google reviews related to orthodontics for the dental practices that interest you. Try to find Google reviews specific for orthodontists working at the practice. Google reviews are an important tool to help inform you how happy past patients have been with the orthodontics treatment they received.
- A skilled and experienced orthodontist will always upload a portfolio of their orthodontic work online on the surgery’s website. This will typically be before and after images of the orthodontic results the orthodontist has achieved with their past patients. All orthodontists are proud of their work and results that they have achieved; they will always keep photographic evidence of their achievements online.
- Finally, shortlist 2-3 dental practices and visit the surgery. Book an orthodontic consultation with the orthodontist. Most surgeries typically have a consultation fee of between £50-£100 pounds for a consultation.
However, some large surgeries also offer complementary orthodontic appointments. During the consultation, form a view of the orthodontist you see – how did you find the orthodontist? Did the orthodontist seem knowledgeable and trust worthy?
- All good orthodontists can showcase a large list of before and after results to a patient during their consultation. Ask for their before and after results to form a better opinion of the results the orthodontist has achieved with past cases.
If you follow these relatively straight forward suggestions, you should be able to quickly find the best orthodontist in London.

They have extensive experience and knowledge of the latest orthodontic procedures. They will be able to offer you comprehensive advice on teeth straightening options that will work best for your needs, including fixed braces and Invisalign.
Fixed Metal Braces – Fixed metal braces are the traditional braces we see most teenagers wear and are the most common orthodontic braces around. They are typically made from stainless steel or tooth colour ceramic material. Fixed metal braces are known to provide accurate teeth movements.
Six Month Smiles – Six Month Smiles is a relatively new teeth straightening system for adults. Its innovative technology enables adults to have straighter teeth in just a few months typically. It uses tooth-coloured clear brackets, making them a lot more discreet than traditional metal braces.
Fastbraces – Fastbraces is also a relatively new orthodontic system that enables patients to reduce treatment times dramatically, straightening teeth in some cases in as little as 3-4 months.
Lingual Braces – Lingual braces are discreet braces, having the same components as traditional fixed braces. However, lingual braces are fixed to the back or inside surface of the teeth making them completely invisible to others. The biggest advantage of lingual braces is that they are more discreet than traditional fixed braces. Since lingual braces are placed against the back surface of the teeth, correcting dental alignment issues can be virtually invisible with lingual braces. Patients therefore often prefer their discreet nature.
Damon Braces – Damon braces are a modern new orthodontic system for straightening teeth. The system uses newer orthodontic technology, which provides for faster treatment times and less strain to the patients teeth. Its tooth coloured braces also make them less noticeable to others.
