Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic Crowns help in maintaining the solidity of the teeth. It aims at the protection of the teeth by holding it together and strengthening it especially during times of tooth decay. Not only does it aim to repair but also enables the person to have better chances of chewing. Apart from this, ceramic crowns also aid in the shaping of an already affected disfigured tooth.

Tooth Coloured Braces

As the name suggests, this kind of braces perfectly compliments the colour of the teeth which also makes it easy for the person to carry it off. This is an ideal way of attaining straight teeth as one does not have to deal with the nuances of the metal braces.

Another alternative to dental braces is clear braces or clear aligners. They are basically transparent or invisible in nature that aligns the affected tooth by making the necessary adjustments. The transparent nature ensures that the person is uninhibited socially, but at the same time not compromising on the hygiene aspect. They are detachable and cause considerably lesser irritation and complexities. Thus clear braces is an effective way of teeth straightening and goes a long way in enhancing the smile.

How To Keep Your Teeth Straight After Braces

You are reading this means you have straightened your teeth. So how does it feel? I am sure its great – isn’t it? So, now you are concerned about your straight teeth and want to maintain it.

Well, there are few easy tips that can help to retain the straight teeth.

Though I think your dentist have spoken to you of the use of the retainer, I will clarify your doubts (if any) on retainers. In your present state – when you have removed the braces, it is the time for you to adopt a new routine. Mainly two types of retainers are commonly used – either the upper retainer or lower retainer or both. You can either choose Fixed Retainer or Removable Retainer. The fixed retainers are attached behind the front teeth and provide peace of mind. However, if you are conscious of your teeth, removable retainer are best for you.These are thin and quite comfortable to use. You will be advised to wear these mostly at night.

After wearing it for a couple of days, you have to use it only at night to secure it in the right position. As you will be wearing it for 24/7 initially, be very careful to clean your retainer and maintain it the hygiene. You can also ask for occlusal guards for a similar effect. It will protect your teeth from grinding foods.

Do you know the actual reason behind the tooth shift? Tooth loss is the major reason behind the tooth shift. When you are treated with tooth extraction, a gap is created. The surrounded teeth drift into the gap and cause crooked teeth. Tooth Shift also cause TMJ disorder.

So, if you want to keep your teeth in the right position, you must follow a healthy dental care routine

However, there are some habits, which if avoided can retain your straight teeth for long

Sleeping on Stomach:

Sleeping on your stomach is not actually a bad habit, but can cause crowding or teeth overlapping. You may argue of its mild strength, but remember it is REGULAR! Actually sleeping in this position cause regular inward pressure on your teeth which can go worse if you put your arm under your head. It create a constant pressure that leads to the teeth misalignment.

Even if this is your favorite sleeping position and you can’t sleep without this, I would advise you to practice sleeping on your back or side. Try this, I am sure you will get this within few months.

Leaning Face On Hand:

Some people are habituated of leaning face on their hand all day long. This sitting posture is common among people working on desks or studying. When you place your face (and head) in your hand, you create a one-sided pressure in one jaw of yours. This will also push the teeth inward causing crooked teeth. You can avoid this, by sitting flat on your bottom rather than leaning back and resting on your face on your hands.

Sucking the Thumb:

Sucking the thumb is a real bad habit. It gives an inward pressure as well as outward pressure causing crooked teeth. This is seen mostly in children who must be stopped to check future crooked teeth. However, many are of the opinion that some habits like chewing pens, blowing gums can also create outward pressure causing misaligned or crooked teeth.

Gap Due To Teeth Fall:

A gap due to teeth fall out may also cause crooked teeth. So, if you had a dental implant, tooth problem, an injury that caused tooth extraction, you must close the gap using dental implants, dental bridges, or partial dentures. This can save your teeth from getting shift and become crooked.

A wisdom teeth removal can also lead to crooked teeth. Though some consider keeping the wisdom tooth, but this is not same for all mouth. So, on having a wisdom tooth, you need to consult your dentist and seek advice suitable for you.

So, now that you know much about Straight teeth, there are chances that you attempt to straight teeth on your own if you haven’t had the procedure. But, DIY treatments are not at all safe for anyone, and can cause tooth misalignment, permanent damage, and even tooth loss. So, don’t try any teeth straightening treatment. If you are looking for Straight teeth in Lincolnshire, there are lots of inexpensive and effective options for you.

Just follow these tips to get a beautiful and straight smile. We are always available to provide you with the best possible support 24/7.

Do I Need To Visit My Dentist When I Am Also Visiting My Orthodontist?

If you are reading this, it means you have just got your braces. So, what was your choice? A clear brace or the tooth colored brace? Yes, both of the types works wonderfully with misaligned or crooked teeth. But, you cannot remove these braces. But if you like to do so (while eating or sleeping) and look 100% natural you have to get removable braces, which are very popular these days especially for the young teens and college goers. But many are of the opinion that such braces work less efficiently than their non-removable counterparts. So, the choice is yours!

So, you got your brace are now must be wondering whether you should continue your regular check up with your dentist as you are already paying visits to Orthodontist for your brace every other month? Well, you are not the only one! Many patients tend to ask if they need any dental visit as they are going through the teeth straighteningorthodontic treatments once a month or once after every two months!

Well, the answer is YES, you must go for a dental checkup at least twice a year to get gleaming fresh teeth.! So, today we will discuss the reasons that ensure the regular dental checkup even with normal visit due to patient’s orthodontic treatment.

Plaque and Tartar – After the fixation of clear, toothcolored or any metallic brace (you can ignore if you have removable braces) additional nooks and crannies are developed, which serves as a favorite hideout for food remains and bacteria. Plaque and tartar formation take place around the teeth brackets, bands and other brace accessories attached to your teeth. Our regular brush fails to remove this tartar completely and so a Professional Cleaning is a need for all of us.

Decalcification – The second best reason for the dental checkup is the teeth protection from decalcification. Decalcification if not treated at the right time can lead to cavities and may cost you a tooth extraction. But Decalcification is 100% preventable with the use good oral hygiene like regular flossing, brushing, and avoiding sweets and acidic, and sugary foods. A regular checkup and cleaning can prevent the formation of plaque and other cavities.

360-degree Dental Care – Thorough checkup is the third and the final importance of the regular checkup. You can expect your dentist to inspect your teeth, gum, and regular oral health. Many times we fail to identify any minor gum disease or loose tooth or damaged teeth filling. But the dentist’s inspection can spot this instantly and inform you for the treatment.

Dental X-rays – Sometimes during the regular checkup, dental X-rays are also taken to note the positioning of your teeth and detect any overbite or underbite. Even if you have diabetes, oral cancer or similar other diseases, a regular checkup can easily spot the symptoms. And it is needless to mention that an early detection can save lives!

Regular treatment – The last reason, that I personally believe is – a regular treatment is also great for getting straight teeth within 2 years. You must be thinking it is the general duration that your Orthodontist has mentioned. But NO.. if you have any cavities, it can delay your treatment time and worsen up the treatment. You can also ask your dentist for the fluoride treatments to strengthen your teeth and saving them from cavities as well.
