6 Fearless Ways To Straighten Your Teeth

Posted on: February 27th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Many patients would like to straighten their teeth not only so they have an attractive, confident smile but so their teeth are healthy.  Only a deep-rooted fear of the dentists or the fear braces and straightening teeth is a painful process, is stopping them.  The Straight Teeth Suite can help you with your dental phobia and offer you a relaxing, pain-free treatment so you too can have a great new smile.

1# The first step

Is to diagnose the health of your teeth and with the help of x-rays, see what corrections need to be made. Some corrections are quite simple, and only a few gaps need to be closed, or only the front teeth need to be repositioned. Other cases with severe crowding are more complex and might require extraction of a few teeth or IPR where a little enamel is gently removed to make room for the teeth to move.

2# Don’t be alarmed

Our dentists are trained in sedation dentistry and will make sure you are happy to proceed with treatment with the help of sedation if needed, so you are deeply relaxed, or the Wand, a computerised, needle-free alternative delivering anaesthetic, so you don’t feel a thing.  

3# Pain Free

We have many methods to make your treatment both stress-free and pain-free. Our clinics are all designed to be peaceful, relaxing areas where you can listen to music or watch a movie, taking your mind away from anything clinical or distressing. Many patients say they would have treatment if only they could sleep through it but stay in control.  

4# There are many types of braces

Your choice will depend on your diagnosis.  If your teeth are only moderately crowded, you might be suitable for a removable aligner.  Custom made from impressions of your teeth, they consist of a series of clear plastic braces that are almost invisible and removable. You change your aligners every two to three weeks as your teeth move towards their new position. With gentle movements, the aligners gradually reposition your teeth without the need for wires and brackets.  This is a totally pain-free experience but if the idea of wearing something alien in your mouth for a time is a little scary, our dentists can help you relax and overcome your fear.

5# For more complex straightening cases

A fixed brace might be the best choice to ensure your teeth are correctly and safely repositioned.  A fixed brace consists of brackets bonded to your teeth and wires fixed to the brackets. Over time, the wires gently move the teeth very slowly, with the least amount of force, into the desired position.  Braces today are designed to be as discreet as possible, with tooth coloured brackets and clear wires.  Alternatively, lingual braces are bonded to the reverse side of the teeth where they can’t be seen and are almost invisible.  We won’t pretend this treatment is not without its discomforts and can take time to get used to, but our dentists can prepare you for this and help you overcome all your difficulties with your braces.

Are you too scared to have any dental treatment done but want your teeth straightened in Leicester?

Some people eagerly want their teeth straightened, yet, feel somewhat awkward and nervous to continue with the required process. Are they afraid that they will feel pain or discomfort to the extent they cannot tolerate? Do they believe it is a long and nasty road ahead? No matter what the reason, one thing is for sure: You don’t need to fear anything; teeth straightening is a gentle procedure and there is no pain involved!

A (QUINTESSENTIAL) PATIENT’S CASE

Are you too scared to have any dental treatment done but want your teeth straightened?

Take this case, for example. It shows a lovely patient who was very nervous about dental treatment. She really didn’t like going to the dentist. On the other hand, she disliked her gappy teeth, so she plucked up the courage to come and see us.
At Straight Teeth Suite Nottingham, we have a fundamental principle and that is to inform our patients every step of the way; get them involved in the decision-making process. Therefore, we went through all the treatment options with this patient, just like we do with all our patients, about closing the gap between her teeth. We threw on the table every possible treatment, from conventional braces and clear aligners to Six-Month braces and Invisalign.
Of course, we did not only present the treatment options, but also the costs, while stressing the importance of regular dental and hygiene visits.

Fitting the Braces

The patient finally opted for Six Month braces, and although she was very apprehensive at the fit of braces appointment, we did our best to make her feel relaxed and calm. We have treated many patients with dental phobias, another sector in dentistry that we have mastered, so we knew how to make her loosen up.
Fitting braces is a procedure that we can stop at any given time, if the patient so asks for, and once this lovely patient felt we were talking nothing but the truths, she lied down, trusting us completely with the dental procedure. Throughout the 40 minutes that took us to complete the procedure, she was listening to her own music and feeling like at a welcoming and inviting place.

Everything went smoothly and after the fit of the braces, we talked about all the things she should know about, such as cleaning the braces, what foods to avoid, and so on. She was then seen every 4 weeks for about 6 months and once we were both happy with the position of her teeth we booked a brace removal appointment.

The Brace Removal Appointment

That appointment, usually, takes about 1 hour, and includes the following steps:

1. We remove the braces with a special tool,
2. Clear out all the glue,
3. Place the fixed retainers at the back of the teeth (they can’t be seen from the front), and,
4.Take new moulds for the night time retainers which are fitted one week later.

All in all, the treatment was pretty straightforward and the patient was made comfortable all throughout the series of appointments. She was very satisfied both with the results and about conquering her fear of dental treatment!
