SUNDERLAND dental experts Ashford Orthodontics are celebrating a deal to supply the new Quick Straight Teeth system across the UK.

The ground-breaking teeth straightening method Quick Straight Teeth is a new system that gives results in just 12 weeks and is set to revolutionise the treatment of crooked and uneven teeth.

As well as the speed of results, Quick Straight Teeth offers a clear, removable and affordable process that combines a number of techniques currently on the market.

Renowned North East orthodontics expert Kqst vectoratherine Davis of Oraprime Orthodontics has been appointed clinical director of Quick Straight Teeth as it launches in the region before a national roll-out.

Katherine said: “As well as the speed at which this new system works most people will find it financially within their grasp. The system is perfect for those patients not wanting or needing a traditional fixed brace or for those who can’t or won’t pay the high price normally associated with clear removable tooth alignment systems.

”We have used Ashford’s laboratory services for many years and they were the natural choice to produce the Q appliances which are set to revolutionise teeth straightening.”

Since launching in 2001, Ashford Orthodontics has grown into one of the leading laboratories of its kind, supplying dental practices across the UK with hand-crafted retainers, braces and dental fixings.

Company director Sean Thompson of Ashford Orthodontics said: “We are delighted to be involved with Quick Straight Teeth which really is going to bring this type of procedure within the financial grasp of most people.

“The service will be delivered through a network of top quality dental practices throughout the country and the clear affordable braces will be made right here in Sunderland.”
