Are you worried that your crooked teeth are knocking your confidence and that the only solution open to you is that of ugly metal braces? Don’t despair, at Crofts Dental Practice we offer many solutions to any dental problems you may have and seeking orthodontics in Essex may just be the light at the end of the tunnel for your teeth!
But just what is Orthodontics in Essex?
This type of dental practice deals with the correction of the alignment of teeth and jaws. If these are not straightened this can lead to further dental issues because crooked teeth, for example, can sometimes be very hard to keep clean and tooth decay can occur.
So what treatments could there be for my crooked teeth?
We offer a number of solutions that could be the answer to your prayers for a stunning smile, the first is that of Invisalign treatment. If you feel self-conscious when thinking about having the old school metal braces, this could be the perfect treatment for you. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible as they are made from clear material. A series of bespoke aligners are made specifically for each patient and these are each worn for around two weeks at a time, before moving on to the next aligners.
There is also another innovative alternative treatment which is that of lingual braces, they are are a dentistry solution for modern times. The treatment is very simple, an impression of the teeth is made and then a bespoke metal bracket is shaped for your teeth. These brackets are fixed to the back of the teeth and attached with bands. These braces move to align with teeth over time and can take anything from 12 to 18 months.
We also offer the Inman Aligner treatment which is ideal for overlapping or protruding front teeth. With this procedure, the teeth are guided to an ideal position in a very short time, in most cases 16 to 18 weeks. The Inman is very adaptable as it can be removed to fit with your lifestyle.
How do I look after my teeth after treatment
Overlapping and wonky teeth can not only cramp your style, but they can also damage your health. With overcrowding or crookedness, teeth can be very hard to clean, especially in between, so it can be hard to complete an oral health regime properly. By getting one of our many new and contemporary treatments like Invisalign, Inman or Lingual braces, you will gain positive benefits to your oral health.
We recommend always cleaning your teeth twice a day and flossing or using an alternative, to ensure that you keep bacteria and plaque at bay.
