Beyond the basics with your dentist in Oxford

It’s great to be on the books of a good NHS dentist in Oxford, but the NHS only covers the basics of dental treatments such as check-ups, fillings, extractions and dentures or bridges.

Invisalign

What is Invisalign? Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment. As with traditional braces, the aim of Invisalign is to correct orthodontic problems by aligning the teeth and jaw. It consists of a series of transparent, customised, removable, plastic aligners, which help move your teeth into their correct position over a specific amount of time prescribed by your dentist. As you progress through the treatment, the aligners will become tighter fitting, moving teeth into the required position to create a beautiful straight smile. Your dentist will provide a new set of aligners every two weeks or so. Invisalign invisible braces can be removed for up to two hours a day for eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. However, they must remain in place for at least 22 hours a day to successfully straighten your teeth. Advantages of Invisalign Unlike traditional braces that use metal wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, which fits snugly over your teeth and gums. This way you are unlikely to experience any mouth trauma. Invisalign also allows for flexibility. Since the aligners can be taken out, you can remove them for a short period of time, allowing you to have control over your appearance. Moreover, Invisalign promotes good oral care, reducing the risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Last but not least, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, therefore few people will even realise you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.

The Importance of regular dental visits

Oral health is really important because of its several knock-on effects on our overall health. Studies have shown that bacteria from the mouth can cause infection and inflammation in other parts of the body as well as encourage diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Common oral health issues such as plaque build-up, cavities and gum disease often occur because of poor oral hygiene. However, even diligent brushers and flossers have to visit the dentist regularly, since only a dentist can clean your teeth thoroughly and effectively. Regular dental check-ups with the dentist will offer a valuable insight into the condition of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Therefore, problems like cavities and plaque can be diagnosed early or even prevented. Tooth decay can be stopped or managed if it is diagnosed at an early stage. Treating problems not only helps your teeth remain healthy for longer, but also lowers your overall dental costs in the long-term. Ignoring dental problems, however harmless they may seem, allows them time to expand and cause more problems in the long-run. If you haven’t visited the dentist for quite some time, consider scheduling an appointment as soon as possible. Apart from gum disease and tooth decay, your dentist will also screen your mouth and teeth for more serious conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer....
