I have just completed Invisalign teeth straightening with Angus Pringle at The Wessex Dental Specialist Centre.As a dentist myself, I knew how important it was to find the right clinician to carry out the treatment. I have been so impressed with Angus’s professionalism and attention to detail.The receptionists and nurses have also been helpful and welcoming at every appointment.I am absolutely delighted with my new smile! My teeth are beautifully aligned now and the food trapping that I was experiencing due to crowded teeth has resolved.Thank you Angus and the team at The Wessex.
I opted for my Invisalign treatment at Wessex Dental largely because of the skills and professionalism of the team. I was given honest, transparent and helpful advice throughout my treatment. I am very pleased with the results and have recommended Angus and the team to lots of people. I’ll be going back to the practice for further orthodontic work. Great service all - thank you so much!
From the beginning to the end of my orthodontic treatment I felt; confident, informed and well looked after. Angus is efficient yet very thorough. My concerns regarding the appearance of my teeth decreased as I progressed through my aligning trays which are easy to adapt too around a busy life.If I had any questions during my treatment Angus always replied quickly explaining everything so clearly. Angus and his Nurse Carla always welcomed me with a smile. I would recommend Angus to anyone considering straightening their smile!Thank you Angus at the Wessex.
Having been bothered by my teeth for years, in 2017 I finally started the long process to treat them! Oasis Wessex have been amazing from the very beginning, always explaining everything fully to me so I was able to make my own informed choices about my treatment. When my Invisalign did not work as hoped, I was switched to fixed braces at no extra charge and after a total of almost 3 years (had really bad teeth!), I finally got the smile I’ve always wanted!Angus took over my treatment mid-way and has been amazing! I was very nervous when the time came to finally take the braces off and I was dreading the removal but Angus was really patient and explained everything each step of the way, reassuring me it was ok if I needed to stop and take a break and spreading the removal over 2 visits so it wasn’t too much in one go for me! If you’re a nervous patient, I highly recommend Angus!
Angus was brilliant! I didn't think there was too much to change with my teeth it was just on my lower row there was one pushed back that I wanted sorted but looking back at older photos compared to now my top teeth have changed so much too! I chose Wessex because a friend recommended it to me and told me how easy Invisalign was, during treatment Angus was very good, explained everything in an easy manner and listened to what I wanted.Benefits: easy to to fit, makes you think more about meals as you can't snack, you can hardly see them when they're onCons: this one didn't bother me but you have to take them out if you like hot drinks, the 1st week of taking them in and out was a bit painful but the 2nd week onwards it didn't hurt at all, it can take longer than predicted, some teeth are stubborn.If you're thinking about it definitely get a consultation to see how much your teeth will change, I was surprised to see how jumbled my back ones were.Abbie
I attended a few dentist/orthodontic consultations for Invisalign treatment before visiting Angus, however, as soon as I met Angus I knew I had to use Angus Pringle Orthodontics for my treatment as he was so calming and attentive and I felt I could ask him any and every question. I booked my treatment the next day! I was concerned with my narrow smile where my teeth tilted inwards, not only has Angus corrected the aesthetics to create a wider smile he was also very attentive to my bite. I am so so pleased with my results and felt that Angus really listened to all my concerns, however big or small. Nothing felt like too much trouble and I was able to complete several rounds of refinements to ensure I was 100% happy. He kept me updated with my progress showing me the plans of my treatment along my journey which is helpful to ensure you know what to expect. I honestly could not recommend Angus highly enough and have already recommended him to any friends or family considering treatment! If anyone is considering Invisalign I would not look elsewhere!
I decided that I wanted to have Invisalign for a crooked canine tooth & general alignment.I did a lot of research and even paid another nearby clinic for a consultation.I chose Angus Pringle because his manner was kind ( I’m a nervous patient) he was patient, professional and put no pressure on me to proceed.My teeth are now straight and the process has been so easy.The service and treatment at his practice has been perfect. All staff are friendly and the practice has a calm feel about it.My confidence has been boosted and I would advice anyone thinking of Invisalign to go for it and to see Angus.
My 15 yr old daughter required her top and bottom teeth straightening. She had received Orthodontic treatment for 2 1/2 years from another practice, but due to the terrible service (admin/logistics and terrible dental chair manner) of the previous practice we decided to try The Wessex Dental group to see if they would finish her treatment plan.Angus and his assistant were amazing with my daughter. Angus explained every action/treatment thoroughly with us both and always set time aside for questions. He empowered my daughter to help herself in the final steps of treatment.He has such a great dental chair manner and is clearly very passionate about orthodontics.They made her feel at ease and she understood all the treatment and more importantly, the importance of her dental/braces care at home.A friend had highly recommended The Wessex Dental Practice to us and I can now highly recommended them also. Angus is great with younger patients, so would highly recommend him if you are looking for a orthodontist for your child/teenager.
Angus is a 1st class orthodontic specialist who’s done an amazing job on my smile, made it even more perfect!!! Loved the Invisalign experience from start to finish. Thank you Angus, Vicky and Claire 10/10 you truly deserve the recognition.
I am so pleased with my Invisalign results, my teeth are perfect! Appointments were easy and Angus always kept me upto date with my progress, the process was seamless even during Covid times! I am so glad I decided to invest in my smile and highly recommend to anyone thinking of having treatment! Thank you Angus!!
After getting engaged I finally made the decision to look into Invisalign. I hated my teeth and just wanted to be happy with my smile, especially for the wedding photos. I did some research and emailed a few different places, reviews played a huge part in who I reached out to, so make sure to research the practice (and dentist). Soon after I had my first (free) consultation with Angus, who put me at ease and talked me through my options and treatment plans. I decided to go ahead and am so glad I did. I’m thrilled with the results and really can’t fault the service I have received, and I highly recommend Angus. Even with covid making things difficult and delaying the start of my treatment I have still managed to complete my treatment plan within the time frame I was aiming for, and have been able to have appointments in person at the practice, when needed, and using the online consultation link to keep Angus updated with my progress (this can be used to discuss any issues too). It’s been a year from the start of treatment to the finish, so you really need to plan ahead if you’re considering treatment for a specific time sensitive reason.

You may have heard about the new ‘invisible brace‘ and wondered what it is all about. If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing conventional braces, Invisalign will give you a new reason to smile!
Because it is nearly invisible almost no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign®, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove Invisalign® so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment.
With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies. Angus has treated his wife with Invisalign® which has given him a unique insight into what patients experience with this treatment.
"I chose the practice after reading all the excellent reviews. I am really pleased with my smile now as I now have perfectly straight teeth, the service I received couldn't have been better along with the excellent advice and treatment I received. I would highly recommend having orthodontic treatment, and would recommend Angus Pringle for his advice, treatment and perfect end results."
Samantha, treated with Invisalign®
"Very satisfied with the end result- even better than I imagined. I felt in very good hands with Angus, who structured my plan around what I wanted and thoroughly discussed all options with me. I would happily highly recommend Angus as a trustworthy patient centred dentist who delivers an excellent standard of care. Having braces is not as bad as you think it would be! And it's well worth doing - don't put it off, just get started!"

Victoria, treated with Invisalign®
“I had train track braces as a teenager and when my teeth crowded up again as an adult I wasn’t keen to have the same treatment to correct my smile.

Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® uses Angus’ instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
How long will Invisalign® treatment take?
Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. Invisalign® recommends they are worn full time day and night (min 22 hours per day). Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign® treatment is six to eighteen months. Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.
I’m worried about have a mould of my teeth, will I gag?
Angus is delighted to be able to offer you a digital scan of your teeth rather than having to make a mould of your teeth. It’s a small camera that can take 3D photos of your teeth, patients love it!
Can Teenagers have Invisalign® treatment too?
Yes, Invisalign® has several treatment options available for teenagers, depending on the stage of teeth development. Some teenagers will be suitable for the same Invisalign® treatment as adult patients. Younger teenagers, or those who haven’t got all of their adult teeth erupted can be treated with Invisalign® Teen – a treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Angus will determine which treatment best suits your individual needs and the condition of your teeth.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
In addition to the aesthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign offers a number of significant clinical benefits including:
Predictable treatment, as Invisalign is planned in advance, Angus can more accurately predict when your treatment will be finished.
Improved periodontal (gum) health through better dental hygiene during treatment.
No metal allergies due to brackets or wires.
Greater treatment visibility and easier planning with treatment software.
Custom manufacture means a tailored match to your teeth, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches.
Invisible, so you can smile as much during treatment as you can after.
Removable so you can eat, drink, brush and floss.
