Looking For An Experienced Orthodontist in Chelmsford?
The Blue Sky Dental team can help you achieve straighter teeth.
Anyone who wants to have straighter teeth will, quite naturally, want the procedure to be done correctly. Applying the correct amount of pressure to move the teeth, without damage, is essential to having straight healthy teeth and, to do this, sometimes an experienced orthodontist is required.
To ensure that you get the right treatment, we have a range of modern orthodontic solutions available and our Chelmsford dentists will be happy to discuss these with you. Essentially though, the correct choice of orthodontic system can only be made following a consultation and examination.
Some patients have told us, in the past, that they weren’t especially concerned about having even teeth, providing that they did not protrude too significantly. There can be a misunderstanding though about why teeth should ideally be reasonably straight and even. Whilst aesthetics are naturally the main reason why people opt for orthodontics, having a set of even teeth also makes them much easier to keep clean, especially when it comes to flossing. Teeth that are packed together can be difficult to floss between, and, although floss may not get between them, you can be sure that mouth acids and bacteria can, and this may eventually lead to decay or gum disease if neglected.
Which orthodontic system?
During the consultation, our Chelmsford orthodontist will not only examine your teeth, but discuss with you your expectations for even teeth and the best method to achieve this. In general, there are two popular types of adult braces that we use at Blue Sky Dental which meet the needs of most patients.
Cfast braces are used where the top six teeth, top or bottom, are misaligned. It uses the traditional wire and brackets system, albeit with materials that are generally more comfortable and discreet than traditional metal braces. Its popularity arises from its ability to straighten teeth much faster than some other methods and offers a high level of comfort too.
Clear braces, of which Invisalign is perhaps the best known, work using an entirely different method. Instead of wires and brackets, a series of transparent ‘trays’ are made which fit over the teeth. Each tray moves the teeth a little before being replaced by the next in the series. This continues until the teeth are correctly positioned. Although this process can be slower than other methods, comfort and the fact that they are removed when eating have proved to be a popular selling point.
If you have uneven teeth, it is important to ensure that you receive the correct treatment. Why not arrange a consultation with our Chelmsford dental specialist by calling Blue Sky Dental on 01245 211070.
