A great decision
“It’s been one of the best things that I have ever done.”
In the past, Emma was always really unhappy about her teeth. “I didn’t want my photo taken because they were so wonky,” she says.
At the age of 14, Emma’s dentist referred her to an orthodontist but she wasn’t keen on the person she saw. When she happened to change dentist, Emma was recommended Dr Alastair Smith at Pallant Orthodontics.
“I was really glad to see him,” says Emma. “He talked me through the whole process. I was very nervous because he said I would have to have a tooth taken out. However, once I made up my mind to have the tooth out, it was fine.”
What happened next?
“Alastair kept checking with me that I was happy,” recalls Emma. “He didn’t hide anything but was just generally nice. The braces were really good and I got a lot of positive comments. They had proper fixings to my teeth and worked really well.”
When her braces were first fitted, Emma says they were a bit painful but as she went through the treatment nothing hurt. “The treatment took just 11 months which seemed really quick,” she says.
The end result
When her braces came off, Emma was really pleased.
“It’s been one of the best things that I have ever done. I wouldn’t change anything and I would recommend Alastair to anyone.”
