Have you just felt like sitting down with a dental professional who is not necessarily a dentist and just being social? Having a chat with a relaxing warm drink in a confidential arena where you can discuss anything and everything? Sometimes people can become a little nervous and timid when discussing things with a dentist and sometimes a dentist can find themselves in a corner when discussing things such as finances with clients.
Qualifying for Invisalign is something which can really only be determined on a case-by-case basis, by a trained orthodontist. However, there are some indications as to whether this is the most suitable treatment for your circumstances.
In the majority of cases, Invisalign is ideal for correcting most tooth concerns that a traditional brace would be used for, including gaps in the teeth or misalignments.
Ever since brand new EU regulations were enforced allowing only 6% hydrogen peroxide to be used in whitening treatments, it has been implied that there has been a leaning towards more “long-term” dental transformations, as opposed to “overnight successes” which may include teeth whitening.
Earlier in the year we were awarded Diamond Provider Status by Invisalign and we are now proud to have received our official plaque which takes pride of place in our practice:
There are just not enough hours in the day. With work and picking up the kids from school and making dinner and all that exercise you’re supposed to be doing to keep healthy, it can be difficult to put aside any time for necessary dental treatment. In fact, the only time you are able to attend a dental appointment may be your lunch break, but what treatment can you fit into one hour? Well, we’re going to tell you!
We recently blogged about different types of bites, today we’re going to focus specifically on the crossbite.
WHAT IS A CROSSBITE?
A crossbite is generally a heredity problem when the teeth are incorrectly aligned due to the upper and lower jaw becoming unaligned. In basic terms when the teeth are bitten together the top teeth will be on the inside of the bottom teeth. Although there are other ways cross bites can come along such as careless chewing habits, thumb sucking and a delayed loss of baby teeth or irregular grown of new teeth.
We are delighted to share with you our latest testimonial from a happy client whom received treatment from us recently. You can read more of our testimonials here.
“Last year, I finally decided to approach a dentist about my teeth. I’d always been self-conscious of them as they were badly aligned with one of my canines protruding in front of the rest of my teeth, pushing the others out of place. I knew they needed treatment but was apprehensive of dentists and so continued to put it off.
We talk to lots of people every day and its very common for people to suffer with intense fears over going to the dentist.
