The abbreviation TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, that is the point at where the jaws meet at the back of your mouth, however like most terms in life it has evolved into meaning that if you have TMJ, it’s a condition that you have with your jaw-joints. However you paint it up, it is one of the smallest, delicate and important joints in the body. A lot of forces go through these joints each day, from chatting and chewing and more dangerously, grinding, so it is important to care for the occlusion or ‘bite’ of the mouth. In your early years, getting your teeth aligned can protect the jaws from over, under and cross biting and ensure that they come together correctly. This will reduce the stresses that go through the TMJ. The fitting of crowns, dental bridges and implants after tooth loss are also important in maintaining the health of the occlusion, as they help to keep the shape of the mouth true. If you participate in contact sports, it’s imperative that you protect your mouth and jaws from damage, again to save your jaw joints- because here’s the deal to all of this. If your jaw aches or clicks, it means that it could already be damaged and it may take some serious surgery to repair it. If you have any fears about this, Walton’s Mulberry Dental Care, that serves Sunbury, has all the information you need about TMJ.
Choosing a brace can be quite daunting so you need advice first and Mulberry Dental Care of Walton are the people to talk to it comes to making a decision so that you can get the best that you are paying for. Woven into these costs come fees from seeing the dentist each time you need to be checked up so if you could find a discreet, fast working brace that works automatically and cuts down on the amount of dental visits. Well, your prayers have been answered in Surbiton in the shape of the Damon brace. Using all the latest technology and discreet materials this brace cuts treatment times in half. It involves placing a series of plates onto the surface of the teeth. Then a free moving wire is fed through each one and anchored to a self-ligating mechanism at the back of the mouth. What this means is the brace tightens itself throughout the treatment, hence cutting out the need for endless dental appointments and seeing as the wire is free moving through the plates, it becomes less of a trap for food to breed bacteria in the mouth. There are a few incarnations with the Damon brace: the most prolific is the Damon Clear, as this is almost invisible in the mouth. But whichever of them you choose; they will make your treatment a pleasant one, a concept not usually associated with braces!
There are a lot of promises made by aligners and braces today, but then, that’s what competition in the market place does, but this can also help to confuse you when making your choice. However, if only your front teeth are the root of your problem, then your choice in Kingston-upon-Thames has been made for you- the Inman Aligner and if you contact Mulberry Dental Care in the area for a professional opinion, they too will concur that when it comes to this aligner, it’s the only choice, and with good reason too. This beauty comes in the form of a plate that houses it’s unique little mechanism. At the back are two springs that operates a bar that pushes against the inside of the teeth, whilst at the same time, pulls on a wire that wraps around the outside of the teeth. The two opposing forces gently rock the teeth back and forth constantly and by doing so, the teeth loosen and move quickly, so quickly in fact that the treatment is over with before you know it: the fastest times boast 6 weeks!!! Another advantage during the treatment is there are none of the problems of cleaning that comes with fixed braces, as this aligner is also removable. For what the Inman does, the cost (that’s reasonable too) shouldn’t enter into the equation really- fixed teeth in 6 weeks should be what you are focussing on!

The world of cosmetic dentistry has been refining itself for decades now, and as new ideas and technology enter the fray, they get thrown into the equation in order to make treatments better and faster and in Molesey today, you can find the perfect example of this in the form of CEREC. In order to keep up with the demands of a changing world, this treatment can offer instant results when it comes to having veneers, bridges and crowns fitted. Normally, these type of procedures would take a couple of weeks to complete, but with CEREC, it’s over within about an hour and a half. When you sit down with the dentist, images of your teeth are taken and then fed into a computer. The dentist then sets to work on preparing your teeth, whilst in the background, the computer has come up with the precise design and fed it into a machine that is now manufacturing your new fitting and within around 20 minutes, it’s ready to be fitted. The good thing about this is that if there is any flaw in the design, it can be rectified on the spot.
