I attended the Wessex dental specialist centre on 13 th April 2021 for an extraction which proved more complicated than expected.I was impressed with the treatment and thought Ben and the nurse were very reassuring and informativeI was in no pain and left with nothing but a slightly sore jaw which was understandable.I would recommend to anyone nervous about the dentist.
I was referred to The Wessex to complete the extraction of a tooth my dentist had been unable to completely remove. It had been very painful on the previous attempt and I was not looking forward to this visit.The dentist was excellent. I hardly felt a thing whilst he was digging around in my jaw removing the last bits of root. Almost a pleasant experience!Whilst it wasn't cheap, I feel it was worth every penny.
Amazing experience, very professional and kind team. I was very anxious about my dental implant which caused me lots of discomfort due to a loosened screw. Alistair and Tatiana were very supportive and reassuring. Alistair fixed my implant on the spot even though it turned out that the problem was a bit more complicated than just a loosened screw. I felt comfortable and in good hands. They explained everything that was happening. I have never felt so relaxed in a dentist chair before. Leaving the practice all I could think was that this was the best Christmas present, that I can finally relax and enjoy the holidays with my family.
AMAZING experience! Having just moved to the area I needed to find a new dentist and after asking around one name kept coming up in recommendations... Wessex. It was a tooth removal, so a big job, and I was clearly a little nervous. Ben and Becky were incredibly supportive throughout, I felt totally comfortable and their professionalism and skill were outstanding. Unbelievably, I haven’t had to take ANY painkillers after the removal, not one. An amazing overall experience that I too will be recommending to everyone.
A great experience at a first class clinic. It is part of the BUPA Platinum brand and you can definitely understand why.The staff are friendly and the location and facilities are excellent. From initial contact on booking the appointment, through to the end of treatment the level of service was excellent from all members of the team. You get timely and friendly reminders with all the relevant information leading up to the appointment.As for my treatment, an extraction of a difficult Wisdom Tooth, then my surgeon Ben Davies and his nurse Becky were simply outstanding. They were very professional, confident and reassuring at all times.I would highly recommend the Wessex and Ben Davies. Thank you so much for your care.
Over 8 million people worldwide have straightened their teeth with Invisalign. Could you be next?
Read on to find out more and if you would like to know if you are suitable for Invisalign® treatment. Just give us a call or use the contact me form to arrange a consultation with Angus.
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!"
Emma, treated with Invisalign®

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. Invisalign® treatment was the answer: no-one at work noticed when I got them so I wasn’t self-conscious. I’m so happy with my teeth now, the result is amazing.”
Natalie, treated with Invisalign®

” Great result. Exemplary service – “does what it says on the tin!” Have it done early – well worth the self-investment. Huge personal returns.”
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.
