Have you been searching ‘orthodontists near me’ in the hopes of finding the perfect Salisbury dentist to help you on your journey to a straighter smile? Luckily, here at Sarum Dental Practice in Wiltshire, we are experts in orthodontics and offer our patients only the most high-tech, comfortable and discreet teeth straightening solutions.

Affordable and discreet braces in Wiltshire

We choose to offer Six Month Smiles® and Invisalign® orthodontic systems because these appliances are a virtually invisible and short-term teeth-straightening solution for our patients. Depending on your needs, our orthodontic options can straighten your teeth in as little as six months, which is nearly a third of the time that it takes to complete treatment with traditional braces!

What’s the difference between Six Month Smiles® and Invisalign®?

If you’ve never heard of these orthodontic appliances, you won’t know the advantages and similarities between them! To help you get a better understanding, here is a rundown of the main differences:

  • Lightweight, clear and removable aligners
  • Multiple aligners needed, which are swapped out after 1-2 weeks of wear until treatment is complete
  • Very comfortable and easy to use
  • Allows you to eat whatever you want
  • Can be removed in favour of a gum shield whilst playing sports


  • Not suitable for those with more severe orthodontic and bite problems
  • Have to be worn 22 hours per day, so requires a solid commitment to replace trays after eating
  • Longer treatment times of a year or longer depending on your needs
