Are you looking to straighten your teeth? And do you want to straighten your teeth discretely? With so many options which one will work the best?

There is no best option as they all work in different ways to achieve the straight teeth that you’re looking for. At Time Dental we offer clear fixed braces as well as Invisalign Clear Braces.

What are Invisalign clear braces?

Invisalign are a set of clear aligners that straighten your teeth incrementally. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks so over time the aligners move your teeth bit by bit. They’re very popular with adults as they are very discreet and almost invisible. You can take them out them before eating, drinking and brushing you teeth. Time Dental say that many of their patients wear Invisalign in Surrey, as they can still eat what they want and has little disruption to their lifestyle.

Wearing Invisalign

Many people suffer from crowded teeth, this can result in gum disease as well as tooth decay. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible so no one need know you are wearing braces! As they are removable you can also eat and drink what you like. Brushing your teeth is also very easy as you can just take the aligners out and brush and floss you teeth as normal. The only downside is that Invisalign can be limited in certain crowded clinical situations, the time to get your straight teeth with Invisalign often takes longer as the teeth can only be moved a small distance with each aligner.

If you want to straighten your teeth discreetly then Invisalign is for you. At Time Dental we have other orthodontic options that can help you achieve straight teeth in a matter of months. The best thing to do is to arrange a consultation with the lead dentist at Time Dental who will be your dentist for Invisalign in Surrey. He will assess your case and give you all your options to hep you achieve a confident smile.

Merry Christmas!

How to stop teeth moving after adult orthodontic braces…

December 21st, 2016

 

Have a look at this video from Taher Rashid at Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey. He’s completed many cases of adult orthodontic braces and he knows what he’s talking about.

Lots of the adult patients he has seen have already had orthodontic treatment as teenagers, and they’ve come to see him because their teeth have moved and they have relapsed.

Orthodontic procedures have changed significantly over the years. After completing a course of adult orthodontic braces it used to be that you only had to wear retainers for 3-6 months after treatment and that was enough. The thinking has now changed and retainers are now for life! 

What are retainers? After completing a course of orthodontic treatment and the braces have been taken off, the teeth are still mobile and can easily move back into their original position. That’s where retainers help to keep your teeth in a straight position. As the retainers hold the teeth the support around the teeth start to firm up in the new position. This often takes 3-6 months.

There are 2 types of retainers: fixed and removable. The fixed retainers use a very thin wire that is bonded with composite behind the teeth between your canine to canine. Its a great way to ensure your teeth are held in place day and night. They are very discreet and cannot be seen. After a few days patients often forget that the retainers are place.

The other type are the removable retainers. These are clear and discreet and like the name says, they’re removable. Normally these are worn day and night for up to 6 months and then nightly indefinitely.

You can choose which type you’d prefer to have. Dr Rashid will go through the benefits for both. The gold standard is normally to have both the fixed and removable retainers to make doubly sure your teeth will stay straight!

Christmas shopping is well under way. If you’ve already shopped and wrapped, well done you! I’ve still got lots of shopping to do and things can get a bit manic as many other people try to do the same thing! Christmas means different things for different people. It can be joyful, stressful, sad, lonely, busy, exciting  or even a combination of those feelings.

In all the chaos why not take some time out and reflect on the real reason for Christmas?

Jubilee Church, Farnham welcome you to a very special Christmas Carol event. It’s a Charles Dickens themed evening, so be prepared for Carol singing, be moved by readings from Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” and be inspired by the message of Christmas!

It’s a very relaxed informal event with a bar for those who like a tipple and the set piece I hear is going to be amazing. You’ll be transported back to Victorian England.

It’s being held on Sunday 11th December, 18:30 – 20:00 at Weydon School, Farnham GU9 8UG.

See you there!

Top dental tip from Time Dental, Farnham

December 1st, 2016


Check out this video. Dr Rashid gives a top dental tip on how to look after your teeth. At Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey we want to help you be proactive and lead a healthy lifestyle. Many people are unaware of the fact that potentially healthy foods can actually permanently damage your teeth in the long term.

Many of our patients don’t know of the effect of drinking concentrated orange juice and how it can affect the enamel of your teeth. You may know that orange juice has lots of Vitamin C in it, but did you know that it is very acidic? If you drink orange juice excessively it can erode your teeth. The process that destroys the teeth is called acid erosion.  Which has the effect of wearing through the hard enamel layer of your teeth making them susceptible to sensitivity, decay, discolouration and pain.

Often people will drink orange juice in the morning and brush their teeth straight after. You should NEVER do this. What you are essentially doing is brushing acid into your teeth! If you do this it will accelerate the acid erosion of the teeth enamel.

You should make sure you have your regular dental health checks. At Time Dental we also assess your dietary lifestyle to help you make the right choices.

There are a few other things you can do to prevent the problem of acid erosion from drinking orange juice. You can get into the habit of drinking the juice through a straw. This will bypass your teeth and reduce the erosion effect. You can swish a mouth full of water after drinking the juice to help wash away the acid. You can also delay brushing your teeth after having the drink for at least 30 minutes. This gives your mouth the time to settle back to a neutral pH which is then safe to brush.

We provide top dental tips to help you look after your teeth. Come visit us at Time Dental in Farnham,Surrey . We’re your local dental practice and we welcome new patients.

Why teeth whiten at the dentists?

November 24th, 2016

Everyday there are adverts for teeth whitening products. There are so many out there that it can be quite confusing to know what works best. There are products out there that don’t work very well and others that may be unsafe for your teeth and gums.

My advice is speak to your dentist. Not just because I am a dentist, but because we are the professionals and we know what we’re talking about. That’s why it is now illegal for anyone else in the UK to carry out professional teeth whitening with the correct products apart from your dental practice.

At Time Dental we’ve researched and trained in the gold standard of professional teeth whitening. We use the right products for the best, natural result. We’ve tested all the different brands and ways to whiten your teeth, so we know what works and what doesn’t. We’ve done all the research so you don’t have too! That means you can focus on getting the brighter smile you’ve always wanted without the worry of hoping that it works.

Whe you come to see us at Time Dental we will first carry out a teeth whitening assessment. This is to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before you start treatment and also to see advise you if you are suitable for teeth whitening. We  provide special custom fit trays specifically designed for teeth whitening. We provide before and after photos for you so you can see the results. We’ve completed so many cases we know what works. You can relax because you’re in safe hands.

Not everyone is suitable for teeth whitening. That’s why it’s important to have an assessment first before starting on a course of treatment.

We have a Christmas offer on currently which is half price teeth whitening. Call us for a complimentary consultation to see if your suitable. The offer ends 20th December, so call us now on 01252 723 008 and make sure it’s a white Christmas for you this year!

Christmas teeth whitening offer…..

November 16th, 2016

Time Dental christmas teeth whitening offer

John Lewis have released their Christmas ad. Have you seen it? It’s pretty funny. So unofficially this is now the start of the festive season.

With the Christmas build up now starting Time Dental are offering the Christmas teeth whitening offer. Half price teeth whitening up until 20th December.

Yes that’s right. Get your teeth whiter so you can look your best for the party season. The chances are we are not going to have a white Christmas (can you remember the days when we did?), but you can definitely get a white smile for Christmas.

The Time Dental professional teeth whitening system package includes your clinical assessment, custom fit special teeth whitening trays, your teeth whitening gel and a follow up appointment to reassess your teeth and clinical photographs. We’ve found the before and after photos of your treatment invaluable as it shows just how much your teeth have changed to a brighter smile.

The initial clinical assessment is really important. It’s to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before starting on the teeth whitening treatment. Not everyone is suitable for teeth whitening and so we want to make sure that if you start on teeth whitening treatment that it’ll work for you and give you that brighter whiter smile that you have wanted.

The results we achieve are often 8 shades lighter and have a very natural brightness. The brightness of your teeth while last depending on your lifestyle. If you don’t see a hygienist, you smoke, drinks lots of tea, coffee, red wine and dark coloured soft drinks- then the whitening treatment will not last as long as someone who does not do the above.

Professional teeth whitening is completely safe when the procedure is provided by your dentist. If you lack the confidence in smiling and don’t like your picture being taken and posted on social media, then this will give you that confidence.

Time Dental have been providing this treatment for over 7 years. We know what works and what will give you the best result. It’s time to smile.

The best way to get straight teeth…

November 10th, 2016

At Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey we see lots of patients who are looking to improve their smile. Most of our patients come to see use because they are very self conscious of their crooked teeth. So they will often hide it with their hand or not even smile at all. This is especially the case when photos are being taken and nowadays photos on smart phones are being taken all the time! We also see many brides-to-be as they want to look their best for their wedding day.

The main goals of the patients is to have straight teeth so that they can feel more confident. With the advances of teeth straightening we can achieve confident smiles in as little as 7 months. Now that is fast!

In the video above, Dr Rashid discusses the 2 most popular choices for teeth straightening. Clear aligners and Clear fixed braces for adults. These 2 options for adult orthodontics work in different ways but can achieve the same goal. What you have to decide is what the most important factor for getting to your end result is for you.

If you want fast treatment go with the clear fixed braces. If you want braces as discreet as possible, go with the clear aligners. Sometimes case are just too complex for clear aligners and the only option is the clear fixed brackets. Your dentist at Time Dental would be able to advise you once he has assessed your case. Just imagine how your smile would look if we straightened them for you. What would that mean to you and how would it make you feel?

If you’re interested then give us a call on 01252 723 008.
