Strap in and hold tight for the Inman Aligner in Shepperton

If you have problems with your teeth coming across as a little goofy, well then, you should hold on to your hats because there is a device hanging out around Shepperton right now that will literally pull your buck teeth into shape before you know about it- the Inman aligner. This extremely unique device has a dream of a mechanism that works on both the inside and the outside of the teeth at the same time, meaning that they are loosened and kept on the move all of the time you are wearing the aligner. It is also removable meaning that cleaning your teeth or eating will never interfere with the device. Now that is a plus, but it’s not the main attraction of this aligner by a long stretch. Because of the movement in the teeth is relentless, they move extremely quickly, in fact, the treatment can be completed in just 6 weeks! Sure, such rapid changes will require you to wear a retainer to stop the teeth springing back again… but 6 weeks?!! And for what it does, and how it does it, around £1200 is a small price to pay for a device that can finally get rid of your annoying teeth that have been bothering you all of your life. For more information on the Inman aligner, then get in touch with Mulberry Dental Care in Walton.

Spotting the Invisible in Surbiton

Some braces claim to do a lot, some say that they can do the job quickly, some say that they can do the job discreetly, but for the absolute aligner, there seriously is nothing quite like Invisalign in Surbiton right now and if you want the full low-down on this device, you should get in touch with Walton’s Mulberry Dental Care who service this area, because the information they will impart to you will blow your mind: this device hasn’t taken the dental world by storm for nothing. To get the worst bit out of the way first, it probably is one of the most expensive treatments of this type around……and that’s it for the bad news, now the good. This aligner works three times faster than most other devices: you will be set up in the beginning with a series of them that you change as your teeth move. A great advantage to this aligner is that it only needs to be worn for around 22 hours a day, meaning that it is removable whenever you fancy. But THE advantage to this little beauty is that, being made from a totally transparent plastic, the thing is virtually invisible when it is in the mouth- now that is something special. So get out there and find out more about this device.

A Smile in just 6 Months in Sunbury

It’s great that technology gets better with the passing years, because it makes for a better understanding in certain dental procedures. For example, you only have to look at the way that braces have developed: they have become more wearer friendly and the treatment times have got faster. The perfect example of this is the 6 months smile, so called because that’s how long the treatment lasts. It is a brace that uses all the useful stuff that comes from traditional braces and yet gives it a modern twist, like using more discreet materials in its design. The brace can do a multitude of tasks, but what makes it so fast (apart from the fact that it is tightened regularly by your dentist) is that it tends to concentrate more on individual teeth that are ruining the smile, pulling them into place. Again, this is a fine brace to have fitted because it is so fast and priced very competitively with its peers. If you fancy taking the plunge with this brace in Sunbury, Mulberry Dental care of Walton can give you all the information you need.

The joy of Dental Implants comes to Molesey

The dental implant has come a long way since it was given its first trial in Swedenin the 1950’s: it was a very exclusive treatment as well as being mighty expensive, right up until the turn of the century. What changed all of this were computers, digital imaging and the laser and with all three combined, it made putting a titanium root into the jawbone quicker than sewing a button on a shirt. The laser does miniscule damage to surrounding gum tissue, meaning that multiple implants can be put in over a day and healing times are fast. And aside from just housing crowns in the replacement of teeth, the mini version of the implant can help with the anchoring of bridges and dentures. Because the treatment is simple to do, competition between dentists has seen costs tumble, so making it accessible to everyone as well as affordable. For more information about the dental implant and where you can get it done, contact Mulberry Dental Care in Walton: they serve the Molesey area and can tell you everything you need to know.

Getting rid of the Gummy smile in Shepperton

The ‘gummy’ smile is not exactly an attractive one to have in Shepperton, but for a very cheap price, you don’t have to have it at all. Laser surgery has made this procedure very simple indeed and once you have paid your money, it will all be over with in thirty minutes. All you require is a local anaesthetic and then the gum tissue is removed from around the teeth that are most prominent when you smile. Afterwards, you may feel some discomfort but nothing that can’t be handled with a couple of painkillers, but the problem would have receded anyway in few days. During this time, it is important to refrain from smoking and be sure to use an antiseptic mouth-wash until your gums are completely healed, by which time you will be back at the dentists to discus whether or not veneers need to be fitted to finish the transformation off. Again, it’s the use of a laser that makes this treatment so quick and affordable. If you would like to know more about this treatment, you should contact Mulberry Dental Care in Walton: they serve the area and can also tell you the best places to go to get this treatment done.

The joy of Lasers in Dentistry in Kingston-upon-Thames

There was a time in Kingston-upon-Thames when all the dentist could offer you when it came to complex procedures, was a good slicing with a scalpel and a good drilling followed by some hefty stitching afterwards and though this equipment got the job done, the trauma that was left meant some pretty hefty recovery times after the operations. But it worked, albeit a tad draconian. However, take all of these brilliant treatments and lay it at the feet of a laser and it’s like the HMS Victory doctor meeting a counterpart from the USS Enterprise. The laser has been the miracle of the century and has hopefully resigned drills and scalpels to the history books. It does such little damage to tissue when it cuts and so the wound heals fast, which is why it is great for gum contouring and the placing of dental implants. It can wipe away decay in the teeth painlessly and within a couple of minutes, but it can also be used for teeth whitening as well. It is becoming more prominent in dental surgeries, which is only good for the patient, because it has made the basic to the most complex treatments, a precise art-form. If you are keen to know more, you should ask about laser treatment from Mulberry Dental Care.

Wistful Whitening in Worcester Park

There are some fabulous treatments around right now inWorcesterParkthat can deliver you the smile that you have always dreamed of. However, not everyone has to get extreme with these things because if you already have a fine set of teeth, all it may take is a bit of teeth whitening in order to get your smile up there with the stars. You can first try doing this yourself: there are some great toothpastes, bleaching pens and DIY kits you can try out at home which may well give you an idea of where you’re going. However, though it’s nice to go it alone at times, you should also ask your dentist about whitening your teeth because they can offer you some great laser treatments and specialised kits that you can still do at home alone. Whatever you decide on, pretty much all of these options work marvellously in their own little way, give great results and will leave you looking like dynamite when you smile. The good thing that is also attractive about all these products is that they are cheap and so you won’t be wasting too much should they not work for you at the first time of asking. However, it’s always good to get a professional take on things such as this, so if you need any more convincing, then you should try calling Mulberry Dental Care over in Walton.

TLC for the TMJ in Sunbury

One of the most hard working and yet tiniest joints in your body is the temporomandibular joint that links the upper and lower jaws together. These two little things put in a lot of work each day in Sunbury with your eating, chewing and chattering, but this is part of the deal and it can handle things such as these. What the joint can’t handle though is extra curricular work that can come from teeth grinding or damage that can arise from sports. Teeth grinding can obliterate these joints over time: it wears them down, makes them click and also leads to damage throughout the head and neck. Sport can also put these joints in danger if the right precautions aren’t taken. It is why you have your teeth aligned and crowns fitted when any damage occurs in your teeth- to help your bite. If you look at a skull, it really brings home just how fragile these joints are and how they are only held together by muscles. It isn’t easy to say that you should be more aware of these joints as opposed to any others in the body, but if you are aware of what it is that they do and the way they do it, it may just sink in on some level enough to make you cautious about your jaws in the future. You can learn a lot more about your TMJ, how it works and what to do if things start to go wrong from Mulberry Dental Care in Walton.

Dealing with those Sensitive Teeth in Weybridge

For all our endeavours to care to our teeth and gums, some things are still difficult to get right, especially if we have sensitive teeth. And it can be down to our exertions of brushing our teeth that can ironically cause sensitivity in the teeth. Teeth get touchy when the enamel becomes thin and aside from brushing, there are several other reasons that can cause this problem: teeth grinding is probably one of the most destructive ways that teeth can become sensitive. However, acid erosion, a cracked tooth, bleaching, tooth decay and gum disease also all contribute to the problem and overcoming this sensitivity can be as complex as the things that cause it. You can use sensitive toothpastes and get softer brushes- there are also mouthwashes designed to ease the issue as well. But probably the best person to turn to in Weybridge is your dentist; they can apply varnishes and sealants to the most vulnerable parts of your teeth and if you grind your teeth, supply you with a mouth-guard: they can also treat these sensitive areas with fluoride in order to re-mineralise the enamel of the teeth. Sensitive teeth need not be the bane of your life whenever you drink hot and cold or when you eat food. It is treatable and so you should contact Mulberry Dental Care in Walton for more information about sensitive teeth.
