Crooked teeth – treating it the Advanced Dentistry way…

Having crooked teeth can be a highly embarrassing, not to mention unpleasant experience.  It can make you feel self-conscious when you smile and can also affect your day-to-day eating experiences as your bite can be seriously affected by things like missing teeth.

Therefore, in today’s blog, we thought we would devote some time to talking about crooked teeth and of course the many treatments available to eradicate the problem.

Orthodontics is essentially the main practice for correcting crooked teeth but also ‘overcrowding’ in the mouth, the closing of gaps between your teeth and very importantly, the correcting of your bite.

As a popular and actually very advanced treatment, the use of orthodontic braces, which essentially move your teeth in to the right positions and alignment can solve a lot of issues. The biggest choice usually comes from the type of braces used. Whether they are invisible braces or aligners is all down to the very best way to treat your crooked teeth and lifestyle.

There are many types of braces that can provide a relatively quick solution to fixing crooked teeth, which include;

  • Hidden braces
  • Clear braces
  • Inman Aligners (this option can straighten crooked front teeth in six to eighteen weeks)
  • Clear Aligners
  • Six months orthodontics
  • Removable aligners
  • Conventional braces

For both children and adults, orthodontic treatments can of course improve smiles and give a better level of self-confidence but we believe they should also promote better oral health.

At Advanced Dentistry we focus not only on fixing your crooked teeth but ensure that your treatment takes into account your overall oral health, including the facilitation of better brushing and flossing. This ensures a better future for your teeth and gums and of course longevity in terms of your treatment and its success.

For the most part, it may be surprising to know that the overall look and health of your crooked teeth are fixable without the need for veneers. Orthodontics is considered a great option as it minimises the need for changes to your healthy / existing teeth.

Orthodontic treatments usually means that fixed braces are used to move your crooked teeth to better, more aesthetically pleasing positions with the minimum of fuss.  However, there are a number of options depending on your own personal circumstances, so you can be certain that if you want your crooked teeth fixed, we will find the very best way of doing it.

If you are wondering whether you can get your crooked teeth fixed, contact us for an initial consultation. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or more mature – teeth straightening can be done at any age!

 

Teeth in a day

For someone who has more extreme cases of missing teeth life can be really difficult. However, with the advancements in same day teeth you can get your dental issues resolved more quickly and with surprisingly little fuss.

Even if you have no natural teeth left, same day teeth can be a superior solution to things like dentures as they have the same bite, comfort and appearance as permanent dentures but they offer a long-term solution with great results!

Choosing a private dentist…what should you look for?

If you’ve ever considered aesthetic or corrective dentistry from a private practice you have probably felt overwhelmed by the amount of private dentists on offer.  It is a fact that in recent years the numbers of private dentists have increased significantly in the UK.  However, this can make choosing the right one even more difficult.

So what should you be on the look out for when deciding on a dentist to undertake aesthetic work on your teeth?

Look for experience…

This may seem obvious but it is surprising the amount of people who put trust into someone, only to find that they are not quite as experienced as they seem.  We frequently deal with cases like this whereby a patient has obtained treatment that has failed and that needs a professional with experience to sort it out.

You can of course check your dentist’s qualifications but testimonials and of course notoriety within the dentistry profession is also a good indicator of skill.

Do not go with the cheapest 

This again may seem like an obvious point but many people every year assume that they can get the same level of service but pay less.  To save money many patients go abroad or opt for someone who seems to charge a lot less than their counterpart.  However, it can have major implications and sadly problems associated with it because very often you are looking at less skilled practitioners, which can have severe consequences.

Feel comfortable

You must feel at ease with your dentist and very often you can deduce how you’re going to get along from your initial consultation.  A good private dentist will take time to put you at ease, answer your questions and talk you through potential treatments.  Whether you are having Same Day Dental Implants or you’re having a gap in your teeth fixed, you should feel safe, happy and confident that your dentist has your best interests at heart.

Case studies

At Windsor Advanced Dentistry we pride ourselves on offering patients an array of case studies to review.  These are on our website and of course we are always happy to discuss the treatments we have offered other people.  When choosing a private dentist seeing plenty of case studies not only demonstrates skill but it also highlights the effectiveness of treatments given.

Therefore, if you find the private dentist you’re interested in does not have these, you should definitely tread with care.

No case studies could mean no experience or very little, so do not go in blindly.

Whatever reason you have for private dentistry do take the time to find a practice that genuinely cares about its patients and that can offer you a full range of treatments.

If you are looking for private dental treatment why not contact us here for an initial consultation?  We are happy to answer questions and treat every single case on its own merit, taking the time to come up with a treatment solution that suits.

 

 

 

 

Same Day Teeth at Advanced Dentistry

Same Day Teeth Implants are a great relief for anyone who is looking to get their teeth looking better promptly. In fact, this type of treatment has grown in popularity, as it offers people with missing teeth a much better level of confidence and quality of life.

Same Day Dental Implants either come as ‘All on 4 implants’ or with six to eight implants on each jaw depending on your specific needs (everyone is assessed based on their personal needs.)

The Benefits of All on 4 implants

This kind of treatment offers a very safe, quick and cost-effective dental treatment for anyone who wants to improve their confidence and of course, their quality of life. Often missing teeth are a strong reason to choose Same Day Teeth as a treatment, as they can be used for those who have lack of bone for example.

How do they work?

By utilising this great technology you can have a full arch of missing teeth replaced with just four dental implants, which are then supported by a fixed bridge or denture, attached to your natural teeth. If you don’t have natural teeth though don’t worry – ‘all on 4 implants’ can give you the same comfort, appearance and bite as permanent dentures.

If you have missing teeth and you’d like to discover more about our Same Day Teeth via ‘All on 4 implants’, why not give us a call and arrange for an initial consultation?
