Inman alinger patients in Manchester are telling their friends about Mr Winston and Mossley Dental Care.
There are now many different types of brace systems that can be used to straighten your teeth and many patients who are interested in adult braces are now considering the Inman aligner. It is a removable brace unlike systems like six month smiles which are fixed onto your teeth.
Inman aligners can be used to straighten your front teeth if they are crooked or overlapping. Some people prefer this system because it is quick and removable. It uses light coil springs to gently guide your teeth into the correct position. The thin bar which is used to push them can be made of clear plastic and invisible braces are becoming extremely popular amongst adult patients in Manchester.
Mr Winston offers the Inman aligner amongst other tooth brace systems. It is ideal if you have mild to moderate crowding of your incisor teeth. Small amounts of space can be created to align the teeth either by widening or rounding out the arches or by interproximal reduction techniques. Mr Winston has over ten years experience with the Inman aligner and other orthodontic techniques including 6 month braces, damon braces and Invisalign. We pride ourselves on the level of quality that we provide and hope you will have a look at our website for further information.
We invite anyone from around Greater Manchester including areas such as Middleton, Chadderton, Audenshaw, Droylsden or Denton for a free initial orthodontic consultation to discuss your options in detail. You will be under no pressure to sign up for treatment on the day but we hope once you have made an informed decision you will place your trust in us and I can promise you we wont let you down.
Mossley is situated between Tameside and Oldham and serves patients from all around Greater Manchester.

Mr Winston has offered Invisalign treatment for a number of years now. He has seen the system develop into the modern brace system that is available today. There have been many improvments to Invisalign tooth straightening braces over the years which include optimised attachments so that some of the more difficult tooth movements are now possible with the system. The clear aligner system also uses a feature called power ridges in some cases which allow “torqueing” of the tooth roots which means that you can now do more than just tip the teeth with clear aligners you can carry out more complex bodily movements of the tooth rather than just tipping it.
However, the truth is that any invisible brace system or lingual brace systems is only as good as the person providing the treatment and Mr Winston has many years experience and a postgraduate degree in orthodontics. He trained at the University of Warwick for five years part time to obtain a Master of Science degree in orthodontics.
A patients came to the practtice from Middleton in Manchester last week for Invisalign braces because she had a friend who recently finished treatment with us and was over the moon with the service she recieved and was blown away by the final result.

These days in Manchester when you walk down Deansgate you are just as likely to see someone in their 30s or 40s with tooth braces as you are to see a teenager who is undergoing orthodontics. The reason adult braces are becoming more popular is because they are available in metal free “plastic” versions which are far less visible and also that they work much quicker than they used to.
If you want nice straight front teeth the average treatment time at Mossley Dental Care is about six to nine months and Mr Winston is achieving consistently great results with Six Month Smiles braces for patients from all around Manchester. Last week a patient came to the practice from Middleton wanting to know if we could do anything for her crooked teeth. She had refused braces as a child because at the time she did not want to undergo 2-3 years of treatment. We told her that we could straighten her front teeth in about six months and we showed her the clear tooth braces that we use and she decided to get started as soon as possible because she had a holiday planned for later on this year and wanted to see if we could get her treatment done before she went.
We have various payment options including interest free credit so you can spread the cost of your treatment, we offer convenient evening appointments and we are just a short drive from the M60 with plenty free parking around the practice. Mr Winston has over ten years of orthodontic experience and has a MSc degree in the subject.
Of course not everbody is suitable for Six Month Smiles treatment but we offer various tooth straightening options and at your free consultation we can explain all your options. Other options include, Invisalign, the inman aligner, lingual braces and Damon braces. Mossley Dental Care treats patient from around greater Manchester and has a great reputation for quality orthodontic results.

At Mossley Dental Practice every week many patients from all around Manchester come the practice with similar stories. Many times we hear from people in their 20s or 30s and they tell us that their teeth used to be straight but that in the last few years they have started to overlap. Many of these people think that this is because their wisdom teeth have pushed through. But the research shows that this is probably not the cause in most people.
Sadly teeth move throughout life. It is a natural ageing process. Just as the rest of your body changes as you get older the same is true with your teeth. Mr Winston tells his patients that this movement of teeth is unpredictable it could happen quickly or very slowly and if treatment is not sought it is quite possible that teeth which are moving will continue to get more crossed over. Some people are lucky and their teeth stay nice and straight for life but we at present are not able to identify the causes of tooth movement and why some people have lovely straight teeth and others don’t.
Mr Winston at Mossley Dental Practice uses the latest orthodontic technology including invisible braces such as Six Month Smiles and lingual braces and at the end of treatment uses fixed and removable retainers to ensure that the teeth remain stable in their new positions. A set of retainers (fixed and/or removable) are included in the cost of your treatment so you don’t have to pay extra for them.
Sadly if you have had orthodontic treatment in the past but either not worn or not been provided with retainers then as you have got older your teeth may have moved a bit. If the “relapse” is minimal we may be able to fix the problem with a removable brace such as the Inman aligner,clear aligners such as Simpli5. If however, your teeth have re-crowded more severely you may want to consider fixed invisible braces such as 6 month smiles or lingual 6 month braces.
Teeth straightening is open to people of all ages and if you live in or around Manchester Mossley is a short drive by car and is close to the M60 motorway. Mr Winston has experience and a postgraduate degree in orthodontics and is happy to offer advice or a second opinion at a free initial consultation.

In Manchester Mr Winston is providing Six Month Smiles treatment for his adult patients and as the name suggests most cases are completed in about six months. These adult braces use clear brackets and tooth coloured wires to move teeth quickly into their desired position.
Six Month Smiles is a non-extraction approach to treatment where space is created to align crooked teeth without removing healthy premolars. This means that treatment can be completed much quicker than traditional comprehensive orthodontics.
Of course we still offer comprehensive orthodontics with Damon braces at Mossley Dental Care but given the option many adult patients are choosing Six Month Smiles for their tooth straightening due to the speed of treatment. At your free initial consultation with Mr Winston you can discuss the pros and cons of short term orthodontics using Six Month Smiles versus comprehensive orthodontics using Damon braces.
Very often at Mossley Dental Care patients come in and tell us they are getting married in 6 or 7 months or they are going to an important function or they are going on holiday on a certain date and ask us what we can do for them. Mr Winston is well experienced to working to restricted time frames.
One of the disadvantages of extracting teeth is that it increases the overall treatment length as time is required to fully close the extraction spaces and this normally pushes treatment times over the one year mark and sometimes as much as two years. Although extraction therapy is still sometimes used most adult patients can achieve straight teeth without having to resort to this.
Damon braces and Six Month Smiles are rapid, gentle, and comfortable methods for adults to achieve the straight teeth they always wanted. Often the teeth are a nice shape its just that they are out of line and so porcelain veneers are not the correct way to fix this problem. The correct solution is invisible braces for tooth straightening and Mossley Dental Care offers patients in and around Greater Manchester this opportunity to achieve the smile of their dreams. Other well known adult braces used by Mr Winston include Invisalign, Clearstep, lingual braces and the Inman aligner.
We are very proud of our treatment results and you can see a selection of before and after photos of patients treated at the practice on our website.

The Inman aligner was developed in the USA a number of years ago because of an increasing demand for rapid tooth straightening. Now this demand from patients has travelled across the Atlantic to the UK and Manchester people are benefiting from this removable brace.
The brace is primarily for adult patients with mild to moderate irregularity in their front teeth. It places light pressure on the front and back surfaces of the front teeth using forces from small coil springs which place just the right amount of force to achieve optimal tooth movement. The brace can be used for either upper or lower teeth (or both).
Mr Winston has been using Inman aligners to straighten crooked front teeth for a number of years and is experienced in its proper use. He also uses various types of spring aligners in some situations to provide a very quick and cost effective solution to minor crowding of the front teeth.
It is important to know what this appliance can and cannot do and Mr Winston has had postgraduate training in orthodontics and also offers clear/ceramic braces, 6 Month Smiles, Damon braces, Invisalign and lingual braces for his Manchester patients. He has a full understanding of a number of orthodontic treatment options and has been providing orthodontic treatments in his practice for more than ten years.
Mossley is off junction 23 of the M60 and is easily reachable by car. Because of the demand for tooth straightening and adult braces from Manchester patients Mossley Dental offers a free initial consultation to discuss the Inman aligner and other teeth straightening treatments for adult and child patients and if required evening appointments are available. Mr Winston can show you an Inman aligner at your initial consultation and talk you through all of your options.
Inman aligners are just one of the cost effective options for invisible tooth straighteining for adults.

Crooked or overlapped front teeth are very common. Although there are many theories about what causes it to happen we dont really know for sure what the main cause is. We do know that it has become much more common and severe in the last few hundred years which brings in the possibility that it is due to a change in our environment because of modern living. One theory is that it is due to changes in our diets in modern times or it could be to do with pollutants in our cities which could have caused allergies which have affected the growth of our jaws and teeth. It is also true that some patterns of abnormal development of the teeth run in families so there is may be a genetic component to the problem.
Whatever the cause it is very common to see people in their twenties and thirties whose teeth are getting worse with age. Many patients come to us from around Manchester and tell us that their teeth used to be straight but over the last few years they have started to overlap and they are now considering tooth straightening treatments. Lots of these patients don’t want traditional braces and two of the most common choices are lingual braces or Invisalign.
Lingual braces are fixed to the inside surface and so are 100% invisible. Invisalign is a clear transparent aligner which is removable for eating and cleaning.
Mr Winston has experience in both these invisible braces systems and will happily talk you through the pros and cons of each brace type at your free initial consultation.
We are achieving great results every week with lingual braces and Invisalign along with other brace systems such as Damon braces and the Inman aligner. Mossley Dental Care is just off the M60 and is conveniently located to attract patients from all round Manchester, Stockport and Rochdale. Last week a patient came to us from Didsbury and told us that their dentist does not provide tooth straightening treatmentand wanted to have their orthodontic treatment with us. Of course we are happy for patients to continue to have their check ups at their regular dentist during their orthodontic treatment. She told us she picked our practice due to a recommendation from a friend who has recently finished Six Month Smiles treatment with us.
Mr Winston has a postgraduate degree in orthodontics and is proud to offer a high quality service.

Mr Winston graduated with a B.D.S degree from the University of Glasgow in 2000 and moved down to the Manchester area and has been providing orthodontic tooth straightening services in Mossley since then. Since then he has attained a Master of Science degree in orthodontics.
The practice now provides state of the art tooth straightening treatments including six month smiles. What differentiates six month smiles from other orthodontic treatments is first of all the length of time that the treatment takes and secondly the clear plastic material the invisible braces are made from. This makes this type of treatment very attractive to adult patients who have always wanted a beautiful smile but would never consider the option of metal braces for two years. That is why more and more adult patients are undergoing orthodontic treatment than ever before and many of these patients in Manchester are coming to see Mr Winston at Mossley Dental Care because of the experience he has and the high quality results he is obtaining.
It has become very common at Mossley Dental Care for patients to come and see Mr Winston stating that they have an event in six to twelve months time that they want straight teeth for. Usually its their own wedding but is also often someone elses or an important birthday that they would love straight teeth for. Mr Winston treats many brides to be and is used to working within a restricted time frame.
Although compromises may be necessary if you leave it too late to begin treatment these patients are always delighted with their life changing results. Please visit our smile gallery to see some of the great cases that have been completed by Mr Winston.
Our initial consultation is fee and to book an appointment please phone our reception on 01457 83 73 61. We offer great value for money and a high quality service. Six Month Smiles is just one of several invisible brace options that Mr Winston offers and these can be discussed at your first visit.

Invisible braces are now just as effective as traditional metal braces. It used to be that the clear brackets were more prone to fracture or increased resistance to tooth movement but now the invisible braces that are used at Mossley Dental Care for our Manchester patients are just as good at straightening teeth.
Some adults are resistant to the idea of having orthodontic treatment because they think they are too old or they think it will interfere with their life and jobs too much but in reality, from the feedback we receive from our adult patients at the practice, once the braces are fitted patients tell us it takes a few days for them to get used to them and then patients almost always tell us they forget they have braces on because they feel like normal after the first week or so.
Adult orthodontic treatment is becoming much more common now and Mr Winston at Mossley Dental Practice, which is situated near Manchester just off the M60 motorway, has a large amount of clinical experience using various types of invisible braces including, ceramic braces, lingual braces, Invisalign, Clearstep and the Inman aligner.
Mr Winston is a dentist with a special interest in orthodontics and has undergone postgraduate training in the subject. We treat a lot of adult patients from Manchester using clear braces or lingual braces and are achieving great results. Mr Winston is a partner at the practice and has been providing orthodontics for his patients for over ten years. See our orthodontic smile gallery to see some before and after pictures of cases that Mr Winston has treated.
A lot of patients contact us via email to ask us what the cost of treatment will be. We can give you a price range but in reality we need to see you in person to assess your individual needs and can then quote you a fixed price depending on the complexity of your case. We believe we offer a high quality service and great value for money. Various payment plans are available so you can spread the cost of your treatment.
The initial consultation is free so why not give us a try?
