If you’re thinking about having an orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth and you’re researching your options, you may find it helpful to understand a bit more about the orthodontic treatments available here at Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, including their main differences.
If you’re having orthodontic teeth straightening treatment with Invisalign, are you using the My Invisalign Smile app yet?
Invisalign announced the launch of its new My Invisalign Smile app – now available in the UK only – back in February 2016. The app allows you to take pictures of your smile using a special grid to make sure it’s the right size, so that you can make side by side comparisons to earlier pictures and see how your treatment is progressing.
More and more brides, grooms and prominent members of the wedding party are deciding to have teeth whitening in Stourbridge at Lion Dental Centre to make sure that their smile is camera-ready for the big day.
Wearing orthodontic braces or aligners is an investment in your time and money that takes patience and trust in your orthodontist as you wait for the final results. What’s surprising is the number of people who risk this investment by choosing not to wear a retainer or follow their retention plan once their treatment has ended.
Your teeth have had years in their starting position, so it makes sense that they will need some help to stay in their new, straighter arrangement. Without the support of a retainer to keep them in line, your teeth may well stray back to their original placement.
If you wear dentures or you’ve been told that dentures are on your horizon, you may have some questions and concerns. It not unusual for patients to tell us that they remember their grandparents wearing dentures and have quite negative associations – common memories include dentures falling out or their grandparents expressing that they were uncomfortable.
If you’re considering adult braces or aligners, one thing to consider is that following a good oral hygiene routine will be more important than ever during your treatment.
Invisalign clear aligners are popular with our adult patients because they are removable, meaning that you can brush and floss your teeth easily. Even so, brushing your teeth twice a day won’t cut it any more. Even if you choose removable aligners, you will still need to brush your teeth every time you eat or drink to stop food getting trapped in your aligner or discolouring it.
For many people, the driving force behind seeking treatment with orthodontic braces here at our Stourbridge dental practice is cosmetic. Understandably, patients want their smile to look good.
But did you know that having straighter teeth isn’t just about appearance? It can be good for your health too.
We’re very excited to be able to bring you our brand new website. One of the most important features of the new site is that it is incredibly mobile-friendly, so you can find out all about our general and cosmetic dental treatments when you’re out and about living your busy life.
If you would like straighter teeth, you may be seriously considering orthodontic treatment and wondering what treatments are available. You may be looking for the most discreet options, have questions about the length of the treatment, and how much invisible braces cost.
