How Does Lingual Brace Treatment in Nottingham Work? – Your guide to lingual braces, part 3

Posted on: October 11th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments


Of all the popular treatments that are available for straightening teeth, the most popular is undoubtedly lingual braces. Here at the Straight Teeth Suite we are able to provide professional care in Nottingham at competitive rates, but it is important that you are aware of the finer details of the procedure before you proceed.

In part 3 of this blog series, one of our dentists will run through everything you need to know to decide whether you feel the process is right for you.

Am I suitable for lingual braces?

As we touched on in our previous blog, it really does depend on the individual. The whole purpose of the consultation appointment is to take a closer look at your teeth and your bite, and from there we are able to advise whether or not you are a good candidate.

I’m currently wearing braces. Can I make the switch to lingual braces?

The short answer is yes, you could. Again, it depends on what stage of your treatment you are in and what you and your current dentist are trying to achieve. Realistically, we need to see your teeth to be able to answer this question properly and provide you with the information you need. Of course, it is possible we will be able to offer the treatment to you; however, there may be an additional charge in order to do so.

How often do I see my dentist once I begin my treatment?

With lingual braces, we tend to see you every six to eight weeks. As we move closer to the end of the treatment the visits may become more frequent.

Is the treatment painful?

As you can imagine, this is one of the most common questions we get asked! As with any dental brace, it may be slightly painful at points. For example, on the front of the teeth you get a lot of rubbing on the cheeks and the lips, whereas with a lingual brace you get this on your tongue. As your tongue is quite sensitive, this can obviously become quite sore.

It’s important to prepare yourself for things like this, in order to minimise the discomfort. Your dentist at the Straight Teeth Suite will give you some wax to use, as well as a mouthguard to wear while you sleep, to protect your tongue further. If you’ve had teeth moved, you may also experience tenderness around the affected area, but this is all completely normal and does improve over time.

What will I look like with the appliances in?

This is a simple one – you’ll look exactly the same as you do without them in. Many people worry about the damaging effect that lingual braces might have on their appearance when they are out and about in Leicester, but you needn’t worry about any severe changes occurring while the treatment is in place.

One thing you may experience, however, is a short period where your teeth may begin to look worse than they did at the start of the treatment. Usually this is hidden by the braces when they are at the front, so you can’t see it as much, but when the teeth are moving at the back you can go through that much-maligned ‘ugly duckling’ stage. Don’t panic, though, this is to be expected as part of the treatment plan – it means you’re progressing and, as we said, it won’t last for long.

How much of the time will I need to wear my product?

A fixed brace will be in all the time, so you don’t need to worry about forgetting to put it in or take it out. Some people are initially put off by this, but lingual braces are actually the more practical option in the long run.

Are there any other additions to the treatment?

It’s important to remember that even when a case has finished, our staff may need to pull clear liners to be worn in order to complete it fully. This is simply to achieve that final finish with ease. It’s not always needed, but it’s worth keeping in mind beforehand, just so that you’re not taken by surprise come the end of the treatment cycle.

Will I need headgear?

So far, we have never offered headgear to a patient. It has not been needed and it is likely that this will remain the case as we move into the future.

How are you going to prevent my teeth from shifting again?

Regardless of what kind of braces you have, you’ll need to have retainers for the rest of your life in order to keep them straight. Without retainers, your teeth will simply move back. What we tend to provide is a combination of fixed and removable retainers, which will be all you’ll need for as long as you have your retainers.

Do lingual braces damage the teeth, roots or gums?

No – there are two very rare complications with braces, but these apply to all types of braces. One is that the nerve of the tooth can die, but this is typically linked to some form of trauma, such as falling over, being hit in the face by a ball or something similar) Incidents such as these damage the nerve, and you may end up needing root canal treatment. It is likely that you may become a bit more sensitive to trauma with braces.

The other unlikely complication is that the root of the tooth can become shorter. This is called recession, and again, is very rare. This depends on the thickness of your gums, but again keep it in mind during your decision-making process. This tends to be linked to very complex treatments, when complicated movements need to be achieved, and these take quite a long time – very unlikely, but you should be made aware of this nonetheless.

Can people still see traces of the braces on my teeth after treatment?

The traces are rarely obvious, especially if they are on the back of your teeth. Some people may notice white marks on their teeth, but this is usually due to consuming a lot of sweets and fizzy drinks, things that make your enamel really thin. If your diet and hygiene are good, you shouldn’t have any problems whatsoever.

When should I start seeing results?

And so it comes full circle with our answers for this blog – it all depends on the patient. The complexity levels of each case will determine the speed of the process. One patient treated by the Straight Teeth Suite was so responsive that within three or four months their teeth had almost completely transformed. For all parties involved, it was a fantastic experience and did much to highlight the true benefits of lingual braces and the services offered by teeth straightening professionals.

Of course, we can only cover the basics in these FAQ guides. The best way to discover which path of treatment is right for you is by arranging a FREE consultation. To read the next article of the Your Guide To Lingual Braces series, part 4, click HERE

Back To School in Nottingham: How To Care For Your Braces

Posted on: September 30th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments


With September comes the beginning of another school year in Nottingham. While most school children are still reminiscing about their summer and occupying themselves with preparations for another busy year, some may also be worrying about taking care of their new set of braces. This can be a frustrating addition to the already long list of stresses that come with being a teenager.

To make it easier, the team here at Straight Teeth Suite have pulled together a simple list of essential tips for you to follow in order to properly take care of your braces during term time:

Create your very own “Brace bag” Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, rubber bands and more. Braces come with a lot of accessories, which is why it’s important to keep organised. Designating a home for all your brace care essentials will help you locate everything you need easily, as well as remind you to brush, floss and change your rubber bands.  

Regular brushing. With braces, it’s important to make brushing a priority. Braces make it easy for food to get stuck in the small corners and crevices of your mouth, which means bacteria can linger on your teeth. Taking some time after eating to brush and floss your teeth can prevent bacteria from infecting your gums and keep your teeth healthy and clean throughout your treatment.

Avoid tricky foods. Although it may be tempting to chew a piece of gum or grab a handful of popcorn while at the cinema with friends, it’s important to stay clear of the foods that will damage your braces. Sticky and hard foods can cause a number of problems and may even end up prolonging your treatment, so be sure to refrain and keep in mind that you can reward yourself once the treatment is complete!  

Check for extra protection. Depending on the circumstances, it’s important that you let your dentist know if you play any kind of sport or take part in heavy activity regularly. It is important to speak with your dentist to determine whether it is necessary for you to wear a mouthguard during PE or after school athletics programmes.

Smile! Braces are something you should be proud of! They symbolise the smile that you will soon have! Show them off and smile as much as you can, in and around school. Getting braces is an exciting experience and the results will be more than worth it!

Straight Teeth Suite is here to provide Nottingham students with a brighter smile. Contact us in our Nottingham practice today for more information on how we can help you achieve a healthy and happy smile.


Don’t get confused when choosing your brace in Nottingham: Your guide to the Inman Aligner, Part two

Posted on: September 11th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments


Knowing the details of any dental treatment is important before you make the important decision as to whether to proceed. Fortunately, the team at the Straight Teeth Suite are able to provide professional advice and guidance to all confused patients – whether in depth at a consultation in Nottingham, or right here on the blog. Following PART 1 , below is part 2 of this series on Your Guide To The Inman Aligner, so you can get more information and see whether this treatment could work for you.

Will the treatment itself be uncomfortable?

While it’s one of the most common questions asked regarding any dental treatment, it’s a difficult one to answer. Of course, some cope better than others with these things, but as a general rule it’s best to prepare for a few days of discomfort following the start of the treatment. It will get better with time, but if you need pain relief then that is an option that is always available to patients.

Is the Inman Aligner comparable to Invisalign or fixed wire and bracket braces?

The main difference is the number of teeth that each treatment covers. The Inman Aligner is extremely effective, but only covers the front four teeth.  Invisalign or fixed wire and bracket braces, on the other hand, are treatments designed to be used on a much larger scale and would be recommended if the patient needed more teeth straightening.

What is the cost of the Inman Aligner treatment?

Of course, it all depends on the complexity of the case. On average, it is expected to somewhere between £1500 and £1800.

Is it suitable for children under 14?

As a general rule, the Inman Aligner is not usually recommended due to children that are still growing. In these instances, a conventional brace is considered more suitable.

Am I too old to wear an Inman Aligner?

An Inman Aligner is one thing you’re never too old for. The only prerequisite that the team at the Straight Teeth Suite have is that each patient has strong teeth and healthy gums in order to proceed with the treatment.

How many hours a day should I wear it?

It’s recommended that the Inman Aligner is kept in for a minimum of 18 hours per day, although patients are advise to get as close to the full 24 hours as possible for the most effective results. Ideally, the only time is should be removed is when eating, drinking or brushing teeth.

Is it okay to drink anything other than water when wearing the aligners?

Unfortunately, as with many dental treatments, water is the only thing that is recommended to drink. Any other liquids have the potential to damage both your teeth and the aligner, meaning the treatment must continue for a longer period of time.

Can I have Inman Aligner braces if I have veneers?

It is possible, but it will require a bit more extra planning to achieve the desired results. As each aligner is custom made, we’d need to decide whether to straighten your teeth through the veneers or if you feel that changing the veneers would be more suitable. Either way, we can easily work around them but the planning stage will be slightly longer than usual to ensure the team get it right for you.

Will it affect my speech?

At first, you will experience some slight change in your speech. The aligner itself will cover the tongue’s surface, causing you to have a lisp during the initial few days of the treatment. The easiest way to combat this is to exercise your tongue as much as you can – either talking as much as possible, or reading a book out loud to help your tongue get used to it. After this, the lisp tends to go fairly quickly.

4 Things Every Mother Should Do Before Choosing an Orthodontist in Nottingham

Posted on: July 20th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

Misaligned teeth and jaws used to be a challenging task to deal with in the past. However, with the latest advances in dentistry, and breakthroughs that no one could have ever imagined a few decades ago, most oral issues are easily treated. What used to be a long and tedious process is now computer-designed and significantly shortened in treatment time, allowing children and teenagers to acquire a bright and straight smile without the use of metal braces and non-aesthetically pleasing headgear. Also, pain has given its place to nervous-free orthodontic treatments and effective pain management.

That said, can you trust just about everybody with your child’s braces? What should every mom know before deciding which orthodontist will treat her child’s mouth? Here are the 4 major points you need to focus on, to make the wisest of decisions:

  1. Don’t Opt for the First Assessment you are Made

Knowledge is power, and the more you know about treatment options, the better placed your decision will be. For that reason, it is proposed not to stick to the initial assessment. They are, sometimes, wrong. To stay on the safe side, better ask for a second opinion. This should give you more knowledge and a more judgmental mind considering the first diagnosis and its accuracy. You will also understand whether your child is indeed in need of an orthodontic treatment and if the time is right to start one.

  1. Get Advice from Orthodontic Specialists

Did you know that millions of people in the UK and across the world go undiagnosed with serious jaw and tooth alignment problems because they never consulted an experienced orthodontic specialist? The result is to have severe jaw joint issues and tooth wear later on in their lives that require more expensive treatments than the ones that should/could have been delivered at an earlier age. To avoid that, you can find the right doctors and get their advice. Maybe your child has biting issues (malocclusion) or other problems that could escalate into a more critical condition in the future. Wouldn’t you want to know beforehand so you can intervene and prevent it? That’s why you need to speak to orthodontists with many years of experience and advanced training in jaw & tooth alignment to develop the most suited treatment plan for your child.

  1. Ask the Right Questions

– Is the doctor a specialist?

– When is the best time to start a treatment?

– How soon should my child be evaluated to rule out possible problems?

– Do I pay for the first visit?

– Am I paying extra for the retainers?

– What are the differences between treatment options (Lingual, Invisalign, etc.)?

– Are emergency appointments charged extra or included in the quoted fee?

– Are there any payment options?

– Do the orthodontist and staff at the clinic make my child feel special?

These are some of the important things you need to know about, to familiarise yourself with the nature of your child’s jaw and tooth alignment issues and be more able to understand the approach suggested.

  1. Book a Consultation

To make a confident decision, you have to visit the clinic in person. During that visit, you will not only be able to get clarifications to the burning questions you have in mind, but also take a good look around to see if the practice is comfortable, clean and infuses serenity and professionalism. You will also be able to tell whether the orthodontist is fully engaged in conversation with your child and you, or if you are rushed, among so many others. If you are happy with everything, you can then say you have found the perfect specialist for your child. Just trust your mommy instinct on this one; it is never wrong!

Finding the right doctor to allow your child to acquire a lovely straight smile in a timely manner while setting the foundation for an excellent oral health is paramount. At Straight Teeth Smile in Nottingham, you will get the exceptional care you want for your child and feel our innate passion and deep love for what we do right away.

What to do if you can’t get NHS braces in Nottingham for your child?

Posted on: June 15th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

Braces are in high demand in the UK and worldwide. In 2013 alone, more than one million British people, adults and children alike, started an orthodontic treatment. Now, more than ever before, people want a treatment, be it for cosmetic or other reasons, which means that more and more parents ask for NHS treatments. However, getting NHS braces is not always guaranteed, and you may as well be refused NHS braces. The law is seemingly clear and straightforward: Orthodontic treatment is available on the NHS (for free) for under 18-year-olds, who need it. This means that if you have a child younger than 18, they are eligible for NHS braces. Right? Well, NOT always! You see, the trick part of the regulation is the last one, the “who need it”. Who determines whether a child needs an orthodontic treatment on dental health grounds? Orthodontists using IOTN (Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need).

What is the IOTN Assessment?

The IOTN, with the unanimous consent of the British Orthodontic Society, is a measure of the necessity of an orthodontic treatment for children under 18. It is believed that if a treatment is to be rationed, there has to be a way to assess the children’s cases and decide on the ones that will benefit most from a treatment. That way, the limited NHS resources might be better (and fairer) prioritised.

The IOTN comprises the following: (1) The Dental Health Component, and (2) The Aesthetic Component, and are divided in grades from 1-5 with 1 being the closest to perfection and 5 the most severe dental problems, such as protruding upper teeth (> than 9mm), large number of teeth missing, cranio-facial anomalies, and teeth that can’t come into the mouth as supposed because of crowding or any other cause.

Where to Address If you are Refused NHS Treatment for your Child

So, what happens when you are denied NHS or are being put on an unreasonably long waiting list?

The first thing you can do is contact your local NHS branch. You can find a list of authorities and trusts per area, here. Besides that, you may want to seek private treatment. The best way to get around it is to get recommendations from either the BOS website or your dentist. Talk to other people that have had an orthodontic treatment for their child and get some personal recommendations from them as well.

If, for any reason, you feel that the assessment that your child has received is unfair, you should speak to the family dentist so that he arranges a second option. Additionally, you can address your local PCT (Primary Care Trust) and see what they have to say.

Finally, there are practices that offer payment options that make the cost of an orthodontic treatment manageable. Plus, if your child’s problem is minor, you can find treatments that will fix your child’s dental issue in a few months, which means the fees will probably be much less than you first imagined.


At Straight Teeth Suite in Nottingham, there are various finance plans to suit your budget. Feel free to take a look.

No one should decide whether your child needs an orthodontic treatment or not and no one has the right to deprive a child of a beautiful (and self-confidence boosting), straight smile. So, don’t hesitate. Contact us NOW and let’s find the best way to give your kid the smile they deserve!

What brace options are there for teenagers in Nottingham?

Posted on: May 18th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

These days, teenagers have many orthodontic treatments, to fix their misaligned teeth and improper bite. Depending on their particular needs, there is always a suited treatment to their requirements. Undeniably, braces have come a long way, offering more options than ever before. So, if you are considering an orthodontic treatment for your teenager, you will not end up empty handed. On the contrary, because of the plethora of options available, it’s always advised to make sure you compare the choices before you commit to a source of treatment, so that you can find out exactly what to expect.

In detail, your teenager has the following options for braces:

  1. Traditional Metal Braces

No, these have nothing to do with the metal mouth you may be used to. Dentistry has evolved substantially over the last few decades, offering more discreet braces. These braces are made of minuscule, stainless steel brackets that are glued to the surface of every tooth, holding strong and thin wires that sit in bracket slots. Everything is held in place with the use of elastic bands.

Traditional braces apply gentle force on the teeth, causing them to move. They are often the most cost-effective option because the metal brackets are industry-standard.

  1. Ceramic Braces (Clear)

If you don’t like the use of metal, the next best thing is ceramic braces that use tooth-coloured or clear ceramic brackets (e.g. Damon Braces), which makes them more discreet than traditional braces. Most of them are self-ligating, meaning they have a channel that holds everything in place, but you may also find brackets that still use elastic ties for that purpose.

Note: Before opting for ceramic braces, you first need to know whether your teen is a good candidate because these braces don’t correct all kinds of orthodontic issues.

  1. Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are braces implanted at the back of your teeth, not their visible side. It is not a treatment that every orthodontist can offer as it requires special training and a high level of expertise. So, before you choose this treatment, it is best to search for truly qualified professionals, as it is them who will be able to treat all orthodontic issues with lingual braces. As it is a treatment that demands high technology, it can be more expensive than the others, but you do get utmost discretion. This is why most celebrities and A-lists prefer this particular option to straighten their teeth.

  1. Invisalign/Smilelign/Clear Aligners

These braces are invisible, removable clear plastic trays, specially created using a mold of your teeth, and are changed as the teeth move. It is the perfect option for mild to moderate orthodontic issues and brings excellent results if used as prescribed.

Personalisation Options

Braces among teenagers tend to become fashion statements, considering an entire industry that has moved forward making brackets in all different kinds of shapes (e.g. stars, hearts, and flowers) and colours (from golden to bright sapphire). The same applies to the rubber bands that hold the wires to the brackets and are changed at every appointment, giving your teen the chance to wear something different, something completely personal, whenever he/she feels like it!

To know whether your teenager is a fitted candidate for the orthodontic treatment you have chosen, please don’t hesitate to contact our Straight Teeth Suite clinic in Nottingham to book a consultation, completely free of any charges and obligations.

Give your children the smile they deserve and watch them grow up with confidence!

What are Lingual Braces in Nottingham? A Helpful Guide

Posted on: May 10th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

The majority of modern patients are particularly concerned with their appearance when undergoing an orthodontic treatment. Ever since the introduction of Invisalign aligners in 1998, more and more people are receiving treatments, mainly because of the extreme discretion the treatment provides them with. Who wouldn’t want to wear braces that are hardly visible, anyway? Unfortunately, Invisalign braces don’t cover all patient cases. Some problems require more than plastic aligners to correct. Besides, it would be nice to have an option that allows for complete invisibility. The recent advances in CAD/CAM technology and 3D imaging have provided us with another option, called Lingual (meaning tongue) Braces; a very crucial milestone in orthodontics.

What do they Look Like?

Lingual braces or Invisible Braces are braces attached to the inside of the mouth – the teeth that face the tongue. This means that they are invisible from the outside, and even if someone is too close to you, they would still know you are wearing braces.

Advantages of Lingual Braces

Besides being practically undetectable, lingual braces are extremely efficient in treating complex cases compared to clear aligners. These cases could include altering the height of the teeth, correcting rotations, and closing the space(s) after an extraction. In addition, when wearing braces, discoloration (white spots) occurs, sometimes. With lingual braces, you will not have to worry about someone noticing those white spots on your teeth, as they will be on the inside.

Why are Lingual Braces more Expensive?

Lingual Braces require lighter and smaller, robotically created wires, and precision brackets, given that the distances between the teeth on the inside are shorter than on the outside. Since braces and wires are custom-made, requiring specialised technology and 3D imaging to make them, plus the fact that treatments tend to be more timely and involved, lingual braces make a more expensive treatment. Also, compared to conventional braces, lingual braces may require more chair-time. It makes sense though as working on the inside and upside-down is more difficult for an orthodontist than working on the outside.

That aside, it takes specialised skills to offer lingual braces. It is NOT something every orthodontist can do. They need to have extra training for this particular dental treatment, and, of course, always keep up with the latest through continuing education courses. This expertise acquired figures into the cost.

But, don’t be intimidated by the sound of lingual braces being more expensive. There are ways to make the cost manageable, either via dental insurance plans that may cover lingual braces or in-office payment plans.

What to Expect at First?

It will take some time to get used to having braces on the inside of your mouth and so close to your tongue. But, an adjustment period is anticipated in every type of treatment, anyway. The wires and brackets will feel a bit rough at first, and you may have slight issues with your speech. Don’t worry. These are only temporal and more or less the same as wearing normal braces. Now, the one thing that is different is that it will be a bit more challenging to keep your teeth clean, but our hygienist will give you a great helping hand.

However, not everyone is fit for lingual braces. If, for example, you have small teeth of significant issues with your bite, such as an overbite, you may not be a suited candidate for them.

As you can understand, there are lots of things that have to be discussed so that you can make a wise and knowledgeable decision. For that reason, feel free to book your first consultation (no charges) here at Straight Teeth Suite in Nottingham, where we can go through all options and offer the best solution for your case.

With fantastic results guaranteed and benefits that outweigh the potential drawbacks, wearing lingual braces will definitely be an investment well worth your money and time, so why wait any longer? Just Contact us now and let the most invisible journey to a wide, straight smile begin!

What is the best straight teeth option for adults in Nottingham?

Posted on: July 1st, 2014 by freshadmin No Comments

Many people think braces are only for the younger ages, around adolescence, which is why a number of adults used to be withdrawn from pursuing a beautiful smile and lovely straight teeth. Thankfully, this all has started to change over the last decades, and people of all ages have come to the realization that an enhanced well-being and daily routine, through increased self-confidence and a wide inviting, bright, smile is everyone’s right.

In regards the orthodontic treatments available right now, one of the most popular teeth straightening options in Nottingham is the 6 Month Braces one. We feel proud that our dentist at Straight Teeth Suite was among the pioneers that had first been trained and successfully implemented this treatment in the entire country. The 6 Month Braces is a tested method with hundreds of successfully completed cases in our practice, so we implicitly recommend it to adults in Nottingham and nearby cities that want a fast and discreet way to improve their smile.

It is an orthodontic treatment widely popular among brides that want to be more confident smiling for their special days; we have had hundreds of such cases that we were happy to serve. It is also a much preferred option for those that want to go passed unnoticed when wearing braces. We had plenty of adults having treatment done and no one noticed they had braces on until the end, when they were proud to show off their new smiles!

What does 6 Month Braces consist of?

This orthodontic treatment consists of fixed tooth coloured braces attached to the front of the teeth and a tooth coloured wire which allows the teeth to move. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to worry about taking the braces out and you can even eat and drink with the braces in, unlike other treatment options.

With this treatment, you can correct up to 8 front teeth simultaneously (both top and bottom) in just about a 6-month time!

Am I Suitable for this Orthodontic Treatment?

Most likely yes, as long as you have healthy teeth and gums. As previously mentioned, it is a treatment used to fix up to 8 front teeth on both jaws. So, if your concerns are just these teeth, then you are good to go!

It is also a suggested and recommended teeth straightening option in Nottingham if you do not have any serious bite issues, such as crossbites, underbites, or overbites. If this is the case, you will need to go through other available orthodontic treatment options to address this issue and get you the perfectly aligned teeth and that beautiful smile you have always longed for. Finally, 6 month braces are ideal if you had braces in the past and wish to save yourself from having to wear them again for another 2 years.

I am convinced that this treatment best suits my needs. What next?

You set up an appointment with our dentists, here at Straight Teeth Suite, and they will evaluate your case at full. As soon as the 6 month braces treatment is complete, you can also opt for tooth whitening, so you amaze everybody with a delightful straight white smile! At this point, please note that you need to have retainers in the end to ensure your teeth don’t move, which is standard procedure to all orthodontic treatments.

Our oral health is important, so every orthodontic treatment should only be practiced by professionals with immense experience in their field. Straight Teeth Suite has awarded experts working on each case, ensuring you get maximum results within the promised time. So, wherever you are at Nottingham, or surrounding areas, feel free to ask for a quote and start a journey where the final destination is your gorgeous, straight, bright smile!
