Many of the general public have come to realise how important it is to have a nice smile. You may be aware that after eye contact, the smile is what people look at next when meeting people. If you did not know that, now you do! The thing is many people are walking around unhappy with their smile and that will have an impact on how you interact with other people. You may not even know that you cover your mouth when you smile, or you do not show your teeth when smiling and having your photo taken. It’s not too late to get things sorted out. I promise you.

If you have crooked, twisted, uneven, gappy teeth, then at Time Dental we can use adult orthodontic braces to help you get them straight and close the gaps. When you think of orthodontic braces what image springs to mind? Metal train tracks worn for two to three years that make you look like a teenager? Well, now with the advances in technology we are delighted to offer adult orthodontics in Guildford which give you more options. You can have the inman aligner, invisalign clear aligners, lingual braces and clear fixed braces.

Clear fixed braces is a very popular choice. Rather than having metal train tracks, the brackets are clear ceramic and the wire is a tooth coloured. This makes the treatment discreet. The big advantage of this particular treatment is that it is fast. Treatment time can be completed between six to ten months! That is super fast! Most people turn to me and say wow how do they move so fast? Well the secret is very gentle pressure, which sounds counter intuitive, but that is how it works. The more gentle the pressure the faster your teeth move.

Like with any orthodontic appliance the first 2-3 weeks is the most challenging as you get used to the treatment. You can get sore areas on your cheeks and the teeth can be initially tender. That is all to be expected. At Time Dental we provide you with a special orthodontic pack to help you through the first couple of weeks. 

What amazes patients is who quickly things start to move. In now time you wil have that confidnt smile you hae always wanted.

More and more people are realising how important their smile is. Whether you are going for a job interview, meeting new clients for business, going on a date with that special someone, or just being out in social situations meeting new people. Having a confident smile is the second thing that people rate as being important when making a great first impression. (The first being the eyes). So if you have teeth that are crooked, twisted, uneven, or happy what are your options?

Well it is never to late to have your teeth straightened. Many people think that they are too old too have orthodontic braces but now you can have your teeth straightened discreetly with the innovative Invisalign in Guildford. Time Dental are your Invisalign providers and can help to get you your confident smile discreetly.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic brace that does NOT use train track fixed brackets to move your teeth into the correct position. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are transparent so you can hardly tell you are wearing them. They are worn for 22 hours a day and are changed to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Overtime the aligners incrementaly move your teeth until your teeth are straight. Treatment times vary depending on how much your teeth need to be moved to get them straight. Typcially treatment can range between eight to fourteen months.

What are the advantages and benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign in Guildford are custom fit to your teeth so they are very comfortable. As the aligners are clear they are discreet so people will not notice you are having your teeth straightened. The aligners are removable. This means that you can take them out and eat what you normally eat. This also means you can  keep your teeth and gums clean during your treatment since you can take the aligners out to brush and floss your teeth.

Having your teeth straighter will not only help you improve your confidence in social or business situations but it will also help you to keep your dental health in better condition. Crooked teeth or a bad bite can lead to gum disease whereas straighter teeth are much easier to keep clean and keep the gums healthy. Healthy teeth mean a healthy you.

Teeth straightening for adults

May 11th, 2017

adult-orthodontic-braces-guildford-surrey

Advances in materials and techniques in the dental world has really astounding in the last fifteen years. This has resulted in many more options for dental treatment which can now be offered to patients. It used to be that only the very wealthy and film stars were able to afford these types of treatment. The techniques were new back then and as a result very expensive.

Nowadays it is a different story, and a Time Dental, we use the latest techniques and materials, which is why we offer Invisalign in Guildford.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic system that can help to align crooked teeth or close gappy spaces. Having this type of problem can make people feel very self conscious about their smile and will often hide smile with their lips shut or place a hand over the mouth. In the age of phone cameras, this can really affect your day to day life.

Some people are so self conscious about their smile even the thought of having any orthodontic brackets fitted to their teeth is not something they wish to do. That is why at Time Dental we offer Invisalign in Guildford.

Unlike traditional orthodontic braces that use metal brackets, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are made of a special high grade medical plastic. It is so strong the aligners can be made very thin which makes them look virtually invisible to the naked eye. The Invisalign aligners are custom fit bespoke aligners that are made specifically for your teeth. Using computer assisted technology, Invisalign can carefully predict what movements need to be made to achieve your final result and also how many aligners it will take to achieve this.

How does Invisalign work?

The aligners fit snugly over the teeth so they are very comfortable to wear. They are typically worn for 22 hours a day and are only taken out if you are eating, brushing your teeth or having a hot drink. So this enables you to easily keep your teeth and gums healthy while having the treatment. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and as time progresses the aligners gradually move your teeth into the correct position giving you a straight smile.

If you are interested in Invisalign give our friendly team a call on 01252 723 008.

Can I straighten my teeth without “train-track” metal braces?

There are so many people in Britain who are unhappy with their smile. Having a gappy smile, wonky teeth, teeth that are not aligned or maybe a combination of all the these problems can leave you feeling self-conscious. Some of our patients say that their problem does not affect them in anyway, but they do not like to show their teeth when smiling or when someone is taking a photo. I think that sounds like a bit of a contradiction if you ask me! Here at Time Dental we understand your concerns and we want to help you with Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

This is an orthodontic treatment in Fleet for patients who do not want to have train-track orthodontic braces. The Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners that incrementally move your teeth over time into the desired position.

Invisalign in Fleet is an excellent discreet orthodontic brace. They are removable and must be worn for about 22 hours a day. They are only taken out when you are eating and having a hot drink. As they are transparent, most people will not know you have braces on! They are designed to suit around your lifestyle.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

These clear aligners are custom fit to your mouth so they are very comfortable and because they are clear they are virtually invisible to other people. So your friends will not know you are having your teeth straightened.

As the Invisalign aligners are removable you can easily keep your teeth and gums clean. You can brush your teeth as normal in the morning and at night and also clean interdentally with floss or interdental brushes to maintain a healthy mouth during your treatment. You also need to clean your aligners, which is easy to do as you can take them out and use your toothbrush to clean them.

Because the alginers can be taken out you can also generally eat what you normally eat while having the Invisalign orthodontic treatment. How great is that?

As well as your teeth looking straight there are major health benefits too. Once your teeth are straightened you will find that you can maintain the health of your teeth and gums much easier. Crooked teeth make it hard to keep your gums healthy and can lead to gum disease, but once they are straight it makes it much simpler

orthodontic braces in aldershot

Do you find that crooked, misaligned or gaps between your teeth make you feel very self-conscious? We have many patients who come to see us and say they often smile with their lips tightly shut and often don’t smile at all. Crooked teeth also makes it harder to keep the teeth and gums clean, meaning you are more susceptible to gum disease and in severe cases can lead to tooth loss.

Teeth straightening is a team apporach

At Time Dental, your initial consultation will include discussion on what you want to achieve with your smile and what the most important outcome is. After the clinical assessment, digital photographs are taken and your dentist will recommend an initial treatment plan which will cover all your options.  Once you have decided what type of treatment you want to go for, your next appointment will be the records appointment.

Digital planning

At the records appointment a full orthodontic assessment is carried out which also includes a pan-oral scan and a set of impressions taken of your teeth. These are sent to the orthodontic laboratory where they digitally scan your models and with measurements and digital software provide a preview of what your final result will look like. So you get to see the end result before you have even started the orthodontic treatment!

Different orthodontic treatments

We fit braces in Aldershot for adults from all ages. You are never too old to have orthodontic braces for straight teeth and a confident smile! Time Dental provide a number of different orthodontic treatments depending on your clinical situation. Clear fixed braces are very popular as they move your teeth super fast. Invisalign clear aligners are discreet removable aligners. Clear discreet lingual braces are truly invisible.
