Our Range of Visible Treatments


Fixed Braces - Often called ‘train tracks’.

visible-treatmentsThese are individual metal or clear ceramic teeth braces (brackets) glued to the outer surface of the teeth allowing very precise guidance. A fine wire is held in place by elastics (except with Damon / Smartclip) and links the teeth together. These elastics can be coloured (e.g. pink, blue) if you want them to show up.

Treatment with fixed braces take an average of 12-18 months.



The latest generation braces: Damon and Smartclip on the Wirral

A new and groundbreaking design of brace that has revolutionised orthodontics due to its ultra low friction (self-ligating).

This means:

  • Less frequent visits
  • More cases treated without extractions

Lakeside Orthodontics also specialises in Invisible braces like Invisalign and Lingual (where the brackets are fixed to the inside)


Tooth coloured Ceramic Fixed Braces (Private only)

These are tooth-coloured fixed braces attached to the front surface of teeth.
Clarity SL are the market leaders in aesthetic low friction (self-ligating) braces.

Tom Cruise, Shazney (All Saints) and Gwen Stefani all wore ceramic braces.

MONDAY 23rd March 2020

Yesterday the British Dental Association (BDA) issued advice to Dental Practices in the UK about the potential for spread of COVID-19 from asymptomatic patients within a Dental Practice setting.

The BDA recommends that ‘practices cease routine dentistry and operate an advice and emergency service only’. 

As our priority is the safety of our patients and our staff we are cancelling all routine appointments from today.

Following advice from the BDA we will NOT be fixing loose brackets as this creates an aerosol that could be highly infective. 

We will ONLY see the following problems :

  • If you cannot eat 
  • If you cannot close your mouth 
  • If you are getting ulcers from a long wire
  • If you have completely lost a retainer (not if it is cracked) 

If you have a problem that you wish to ask us about please send us your name, a description of the problem and a good quality photo if possible.

As soon we may only have remote access to the practice please would you contact us by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or on Instagram at lakesideortho (rather than by phone) and we will give you advice as soon as we can.

We want to take this opportunity to wish everyone well during this difficult time. We look forward to catching up with everyone after this is over and normal life resumes. 

Best wishes 

Jonty Meisner and all the Lakeside team
