Invisalign Clear Aligners

Nowadays, there are more options available than ever and adults can choose from a wide variety of discreet, effective teeth straightening options.

Some braces in Sydney CBD may require more lifestyle adjustments than others, however an experienced dentist such as Spa Dental Sydney CBD, will ensure that patients receive a treatment that best suits their lifestyle requirements.

Practical Tips for Removable Appliances

Living with braces is not as uncomfortable or disruptive as before. With removable treatments such as Myobrace and Invisalign, patients will not need to change their lifestyle or eating habits, since these braces can be removed during mealtimes.

In fact, these braces should always be removed when eating since they can be easily stained or bent out of shape. As a matter of fact, patients can only drink water when they have their Invisalign braces on. Other foods and drinks can stain the aligners. Patients will however need to wear these removable appliances for at least 20-22 hours a day to ensure their treatment runs on time and is effective.

Tobacco use of any kind is not recommended during treatment, especially when the aligners are on, since it will stain the aligners. Patients should also take good care of their removable appliances by soaking and cleaning them thoroughly at least once a day.

Dental Health with Fixed Braces

Fixed braces in Sydney CBD do not cause tooth decay and gum disease but patients are more likely to get food trapped in their mouths as food debris gets lodged between the braces and the teeth. If the teeth are not properly cleaned and maintained during treatment, bacteria can accumulate and result in dental plaque. If left untreated, dental plaque will turn into tartar and can compromise the entire teeth straightening treatment.

Get Help

Regardless of how well teeth are brushed and flossed daily, only a dentist can effectively help keep plaque at bay. For this reason, patients are advised to arrange dental check-ups and cleanings alongside their teeth straightening appointments in order to ensure that their teeth remain in great condition while wearing braces.

Women with a healthy teeth smiling

Women with a healthy teeth smilingThere’s quite a difference between having strong, healthy teeth and having lovely looking teeth. Ideally, people would like both. It is relatively easy to keep teeth strong and healthy with a diligent, twice-daily oral hygiene routine and bi-annual trips to the dentist for check-ups and professional cleanings. However, keeping teeth looking lovely is a whole other ball game. And that’s where cosmetic dentistry in Barnsley comes in.

In Barnsley, cosmetic dentistry is the umbrella term for all those treatments that keep people’s teeth looking fresh and clean. The mouth and teeth come into contact with more foreign stuff than anywhere else on the body apart from the hands. Think of all the drinks and food that go in the mouth, as well as the sticky fingers, the things that need to be held when the hands are full, like tickets or keys– no end of stuff. Some of our foods and drinks, like tea, coffee and berries, can stain the teeth. So can tobacco. Then there are all the other things that can happen to the teeth. They can take quite a battering during sport. Sometimes they never grew through perfectly either.All of these problems are the kinds of things that cosmetic dentistry in Barnsley can fix, and the treatments are available from highly skilled dentists such as those at PDC Dental.

Cosmetic dentists need to be artists as well as good dentists. They need to understand what makes teeth look great in terms of size, shape and colour, and how these vary from one individual mouth to another.

Very popular these days are cosmetic braces. These are braces that are designed to correct mild to moderate misalignments, usually only on the front six or so teeth, which are the ones most on show. Fixing this kind of problem can take only a few weeks to a few months, depending on what the issues are. And not only will the teeth look better, they will also last longer, as straight teeth are not as prone to decay and gum disease as wonky ones.

Other cosmetic dentistry treatments improve the look of the teeth in terms of repairing damage.
