Bringing out the best in you
Here at The Dental Studio, we want nothing more than to see our hard work and expertise pay off in our patients’ smiles. We know that living with poorly shaped or aligned teeth can be the cause of a great deal of stress, discomfort and embarrassment. Which is why we are strongly advising anyone who feels their dental alignment could be improved to call us today and arrange for a consultation, to discuss their options for orthodontics in Colchester with an understanding, professional and friendly practitioner.
Why should I get orthodontics in Colchester?
A lot of people out there are still of the belief that getting orthodontics in Colchester is something that is done for primarily aesthetic reasons, and that, beyond the visual effects of orthodontics, there are not many reasons for receiving treatment. However, this is untrue, as there are several long-term dental and general health advantages to receiving orthodontic care.
One such advantage is that those who undergo orthodontic treatment are far less likely to develop deteriorating gum problems such as periodontal disease or gingivitis.
This is because when your teeth are uneven or poorly aligned it greatly increases the chances of getting food particles and bacteria lodged within the irregular gaps and spaces between them. Should these food particles remain lodged for some time then they can develop into plaque or tartar, as well as spread to your gums and cause an infection.
Another huge advantage to getting treatment to address crooked teeth is that your oral hygiene will be improved and become far easier to maintain. Similarly, when you have crooked or protruding teeth you run the risk of damaging them more easily through an accident and may find that the gradual stress on your gums and jaw worsens over time and can even cause headaches and neck strain.
What are my orthodontic options?
One of the things which consistently surprises us here at our studio is the number of patients who believe their only option for aligning their smile is through fixed metal braces.
These traditional braces are still a massively popular option and one with a positive track record spanning decades, however, they are not always the most flattering concerning the effect they have on how a patient looks during treatment. At our practice we offer our patients a range of options when it comes to teeth straightening, which include – alongside traditional braces – Six Month Smiles, Invisalign aligners and Cfast cosmetic braces.
If you would like to find out which of these treatments is best suited to you, the best thing to do is arrange a consultation with our in-house orthodontic team. By doing so we can assess the amount of treatment that you need, as well as explain to you the various advantages of the alternative cosmetic treatments which we offer.
What are cosmetic orthodontics?
Over the last few years, we have witnessed a steady rise in the number of patients of all ages who are interested in aligning their teeth through methods that have little to no impact on how they look during the process. These treatments, which are all classified as cosmetic orthodontics, include removable alternatives such as Invisalign, as well as Six Month Smile aligners which can realign your smile in a far shorter timeframe than traditional braces.
