If you want to realign your teeth, we have a treatment for mild to moderate alignment issues which is discreet and convenient for patients. Invisalign consists of clear plastic aligners which are removable and only need to be worn for an average of 22 hours a day. This means that you can remove them when you are eating and drinking, as well as when you brush and floss, allowing you to maintain your oral hygiene routine. The great thing about Invisalign is that, thanks to the clear plastic, they shouldn’t be visible when worn. They are also custom-fitted to your mouth using iTero scanning technology, which means that they fit comfortably and snugly along the gum line. With this technology, we can also show you a 3D animation of how your teeth will look after treatment, before we even get started! It’s ideal for motivating patients to wear their aligners. You will be given sets to take home and change every couple of weeks. The aligners gently apply pressure to your teeth to gradually move them into the desired position. You will then only need to come in to your dentist in St Albans for a check-up every 6 weeks or so. Invisalign offers convenience every step of the way – no need to ask the boss for lots of time off work to come and see us!
If you have missing teeth, we know that this can knock patients’ confidence and we certainly don’t want you feeling like that when we have this effective and convenient treatment up our sleeves! Dental implants are titanium screws which are attached to the jawbone and act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. They are a stable solution to replacing teeth; they won’t loosen when you eat and drink anything else, so feel free to go for the steak, well done. Throw in an apple for dessert too! Crowns, bridges and dentures can be attached to the screws and you can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or even a whole set. Your replacement teeth will be made to match your other natural teeth and people will not realise that they aren’t your natural teeth, leaving you with nothing to worry about other than smiling so much your cheeks hurt!
So, if you want to find out about these treatments or any of the others we have available at UK Dental Specialists, don’t hesitate to give us a call and come in for a consultation to discuss your dental needs. We’re here to help with anything you need and we have plenty of expertise to get you the smile you’re hoping for!
