Paragon Dental – Cosmetic Dentistry at its Best
Cosmetic dentistry is becoming ever more popular with people realising that there are so many more options to achieve the smile they have always wanted. This often involves patients seeking out teeth straightening or teeth whitening options or sometimes both. One such popular treatment with an upsurge in popularity of late is the orthodontic treatment Invisalign (https://www.invisalign.co.uk/)
This very discreet orthodontic technique involves the patient wearing a series of custom-made teeth aligners, which will slowly but surely move teeth into the desired position.
Each aligner is custom made, so it fits perfectly to your teeth and gums. The new aligners are then introduced every 2 weeks and these move the teeth into place. The whole treatment process is mapped out at the beginning, with the wearer being able to see by 3d imaging how their teeth will appear at the end of treatment.
The clear plastic aligners must be worn for approximately 22 hours per day for the treatment to take place effectively.
Another popular choice for teeth correction is dental implants. These are great if you have any missing teeth and they provide an excellent alternative to removable dentures. Teeth can be lost for a variety of reasons, including trauma, tooth infection, gum disease or decay. It can cause a real loss of confidence if you have lost any teeth. Not only that but it can cause problems with the surrounding teeth that are left. Unfortunately, the remaining teeth start moving into the gaps, and this can cause problems with a person's bite, as well as leaving small pockets susceptible to food getting stuck, sometimes leading to infection.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone using a local anaesthetic. These are then left to heal for a few months before a replacement crown or bridge can be added. The dental implants are strong and are the next best thing you are going to get to having your own, natural teeth.
