At Advance Dental, we provide treatment options for patients with varying degrees of misalignment and we are confident that we can find the perfect solution for you. The Inman Aligner is one of our most impressive modern innovations and it offers an ideal option for those who only require moderate correction. If you have a minor misalignment and you’re looking for a speedy solution, this could be the treatment for you. Developed in the USA and named after its creator, the Inman Aligner is a fast-acting orthodontic appliance, which is specially designed to tackle mild issues that involve the front teeth. The aligner is not like other aligners, such as Invisalign, as treatment only uses a single device, rather than a series of aligners; the Inman Aligner is also not invisible like other appliances, but it does work a lot faster and it is much more discreet than most other treatment options. This aligner comprises of a coiled spring, which sits behind the front teeth and a fine metal bar, which runs along the front teeth; these two components work together to produce forces, which effectively push and pull the teeth, squeezing them and causing them to move into the correct position. The forces are powerful, but they are also gentle, so you won’t feel any discomfort. Many patients also enjoy the added convenience and freedom of a removable brace and they find that this treatment fits into their day-to-day life seamlessly. This treatment is ideally suited to those who only need a small amount of movement and it’s highly beneficial for patients looking for a quick fix; the average treatment time is just 16 weeks. We may also recommend this treatment for patients who have suffered a relapse after wearing braces in the past. The appliance can help to realign the teeth and restore the beauty of your post-treatment smile. If you’d like to find out more about the Inman Aligner, simply give us a call!

Often when people think about braces treatment they think of months, years in fact of having to wear braces. Those who have minor orthodontic issues affecting their front teeth can have straight teeth in just a matter of months with 6 Month Smiles technology. 6 Month Smiles are very small and discreet foxed braces, which use titanium wire, and teeth coloured brackets, which are smaller than traditional fixed brackets. In terms of discreetness the 6 Month Smile braces are barely noticeable due to their thin wires and tiny brackets that are either clear or tooth coloured. You can have treatment for gaps and crooked teeth quickly and effectively and more importantly, discreetly. The reason that 6 Month Smiles can work so quickly is because instead of focusing on the bite or more complex orthodontic cases, they focus on the front teeth only. For patients that have more severe problems affecting the full arches a different braces treatment would be recommended. At Advance dental clinic we would describe 6 Month Smiles treatment as a cosmetic brace system that can make your front teeth straight in a matter of months. Normally treatment takes between four and nine months depending on each individual patients orthodontic issue. You may have an upcoming event where you would like to have the smile you have always wanted such as a graduation, new job or perhaps you want a beautiful confident smile for your big day. Whatever the reason, if you think you would benefit from 6 Month Smiles braces then get in touch today.

If you’re not keen on the idea of wearing fixed braces for months on end, you’re not alone; thankfully, we offer innovative alternatives, including Invisalign. Invisalign is a completely different treatment to the old-fashioned train-tracks most people think of when somebody mentions braces; this system uses a series of completely clear, removable aligners to move your teeth and give you a perfectly straight set of pearly whites. With Invisalign, patients can enjoy the flexibility of a removable brace, as well as the discretion of clear braces; when the aligners are in position, they cannot be detected, so you can smile in confidence, safe in the knowledge that nobody will know that you’re wearing braces. Removable braces are not just advantageous because they give you more freedom; they also have practical benefits. Wearing braces can make brushing the teeth and eating more difficult and daunting; with removable braces, you don’t have to adapt the way you do these day to day activities at all and you can carry on as normal, with no fears about trapped food or an increased risk of decay because you cant brush your teeth properly. The Invisalign treatment process differs to conventional orthodontic treatment, as it uses a number of appliances, rather than a single fixed brace. Each Invisalign aligner is slightly different; the aligners are swapped every 2 weeks and should be worn at all times apart from when you are eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults and it offers a solution for many common orthodontic issues, including mild crowding, spaces between the teeth and crooked teeth. If you like the sound of what you hear about Invisalign, why not call us now and book a consultation?

With the incredible 6 Month Smiles system, we can create stunning, straight smiles in a matter of months using discreet, clear braces.6 Month Smiles is a popular discreet orthodontic system, which uses clear braces to straighten the teeth in just 6 months. These braces are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires for maximum discretion and they use advanced technology to move the teeth quicker than most other treatments.This treatment is aimed at patients who require treatment for issues that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth; the braces focus on these teeth, which reduces treatment time, and enables patients who only need minor correction and limited movement to undergo treatment at an appropriate level, rather than more intensive treatment than is required.This treatment works by using self-ligating wires and brackets to generate forces to gently move the teeth; although the teeth move quickly, pain is minimal because of the technology behind the braces. After the first coupe of days of getting used to the braces, you’ll barely even notice that they’re there. 6 Month Smiles offers speed, comfort, discreet aesthetics and amazing results; it also offers better value for money than some treatments because fewer treatment sessions are required. Unfortunately, this treatment is suitable for everyone and this is the only real drawback; this system is great for patients with issues with the front teeth, but if you have more complex needs, it’s probably not the best match. We offer a range of treatments and can go through suitable options with you during your consultation. If 6 Month Smiles sounds good to you, call now and book your consultation! In just 6 month’s time, you could be showing off a beautiful new smile!

Invisalign treatment is ideally suited to patients who have concerns about wearing a visible brace and it is suitable for most people who have either minor or moderate orthodontic issues. Many patients, especially adults, who come to us are reluctant to have braces because they worry about how they will come across at work in a professional setting and how they will look and feel when they meet new people and engage in social activities.

Bleeding gums are usually the first sign of gum disease, a common oral condition, which can become very serious if left untreated. If you are eager to keep disease at bay or you have signs of gum disease, there are various things you can do to try and reduce the risk of it developing. These include arranging to see your dentist, practising good oral hygiene, seeing a dental hygienist, focusing on your diet and giving up smoking. The earlier gum disease is diagnosed, the better, as mild gum disease is easily treated, so seeing a dentist is really important if you notice bleeding when you brush your teeth or your teeth are swollen or painful. It’s important not to wait around and hope it will get better, as the likelihood is that the opposite will happen. Oral hygiene is really important when it comes to gum disease and often, good oral hygiene is sufficient to revere the effects of gingivitis, the mild form of gum disease. A good oral hygiene regime should include rushing twice a day and flossing. If you’re prone to gum disease or you have symptoms, seeing a dental hygienist is hugely beneficial; hygienists provide powerful cleaning treatments, which rid the mouth from bacteria and help to keep the mouth as clean as possible. In addition to seeking dental help, there are also things you can do at home to try and protect your teeth and gums. Your diet is really important, as some foods increase the risk of damage to the teeth and gums; these include foods and drinks that contain a lot of sugar and acidic foods and beverages. Smoking is also another unhealthy lifestyle choice, as it increases the risk of gum disease by reducing blood flow to the gums; it also slows the body’s healing processes down, stains the teeth and causes bad breath. If you need help with giving up smoking or you have questions about oral hygiene or diet, we will be happy to help and offer advice.

Here at Advance Dental we not only offer the very best dental treatments, but also the very best facial rejuvenation treatments. While visiting the practice for tooth whitening why not ask us about our Botox treatments. Easy, quick and simple, one of our sessions last only 20 minutes, but can ease and even erase lines and wrinkles in just one session. Over time the face holds its crinkles and creases a great deal more than it once did. The key areas for these lines include: between the eyes; across the forehead; around the mouth; around the eyes. However, sticking with these lines and wrinkles doesn’t need to be mandatory and with just one Botox session at Advance Dental we can rejuvenate the appearance of your skin so you look years younger. Botox has been around for many, many years now, beloved of movie stars and fans alike who want to enhance the appearance of their face without resorting to drastic cosmetic surgery. Botox works simply by preventing movement from the muscle that are causing the wrinkles. Botox treatment means these muscles are not able to contract for at least 3 months, so any lines are able to relax and ease out, rather than being exacerbated by further movement. Botox is administered using tiny needles, which are used to treat key areas about the face. The difference is almost instantaneous and can be seen in just one day! Although Botox does wear out in 3 months it is very easy to return to the practice for further sessions, to top up your treatment. If you are interested in our facial rejuvenation sessions and would like to know more about Botox and what is can do for you please get in touch with you today. We would love to hear from you, whether you wish to treat line, wrinkles or discoloured teeth-we are happy to offer the best range of cosmetic dental and beauty treatments available.
In light of the recent announcement and 2nd lockdown we will be open as usual carrying out treatments and seeing patients under strict safety protocols.
