Achieve a straighter smile with braces in Farnham

When you think of braces, you may think of months to years of wearing metal brackets and wires, but just like all other technologies, teeth straightening has evolved considerably over the years. Nowadays, children and adults can choose from many options, some of which are very discreet.

At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic we use a variety of braces in Farnham to help you achieve a straighter smile. Invisible aligners like Invisalign gently move your teeth into position, while being basically invisible. Incognito custom-made lingual braces are fixed behind your teeth to align them discreetly, and low-friction Damon braces move your teeth gently, ensuring there is space for permanent teeth to emerge.

Invisalign

Designed for both teenagers and adults, Invisalign clear aligners can help transform your smile through a unique treatment developed just for you. These custom-made, transparent, plastic aligners are created with the help of 3D technology to allow your dentist to monitor your treatment. Getting Invisalign is a commitment where you will be required to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day. However, you can remove them to eat, drink or brush your teeth. While every case is unique, treatment typically takes a year.

Incognito

Incognito braces are placed behind your teeth, so no one will even know you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment  unless you want them to. These unique braces are made with nickel-titanium brackets and wires and are customised to fit each one of your teeth. Incognito braces work just like traditional metal braces and are ideal for teenagers and adults alike. A consultation with your dentist can determine if Incognito braces in Farnham are right for you.

Damon

Low-friction Damon braces, also known as self-ligating braces, differ from traditional braces in that they do not require an elastic tie to hold wires in place. Instead, they are made of a built-in mechanism that slides shut to prevent the wire from becoming loose and coming out. This simple but innovative improvement avoids all the negative effects of elastic ties. Furthermore, Damon braces offer improved comfort because they can be made smoother, smaller and more rounded than regular metal braces.

Novel technique developed to detect gum disease with squid ink!

As reported in the September issues of Oral Health Magazine and the Journal of Dental Research, a new imaging technique has been developed to detect gum disease using squid ink, light and ultrasound. The team of researchers from the University of California have developed a technique whereby the patient rinses their mouth with a paste containing squid ink and a laser is shone on the area. When the light hits the squid ink this heats up and expands, creating pressure differences in the gum pockets that can be detected using ultrasound. The researchers claim that with this new method it is possible to image the entire pocket depth around the teeth, consistently and accurately detecting whether gum disease is present.

Discover the benefits of custom-made dentures in Farnham

Everyones mouth is different, down to the size, shape and colour of the teeth and gums. Our mouths also change as we age and if we are missing more than one tooth. By addressing two main considerations, fit and aesthetics, customised dentures can help you regain confidence in your teeth and smile, enabling you to eat and talk with secure and natural-looking dentures.

At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, we appreciate that getting dentures that fit correctly will provide benefits in terms both of oral health and aesthetics. Custom-made dentures in Farnham are created to fit your mouth precisely, through a number of measuring and fitting stages, using high-quality materials. All our Farnham dentures are made by Frank Johnson, the Clinical Dental Technician at Elmsleigh House. He will help you customise your dentures in terms of teeth size, shape and colour. He will also ensure that the base of your dentures matches the colour of your gums.

Your options

We offer two types of removable dentures in Farnham: premier dentures and essential dentures. Premier dentures offer optimum form and function. Working from special measurements, old photographs and digital imaging technology, our clinical dental technician will create impressions of your jaw and record the individual movement characteristics of your mouth. He will then be able to recreate your smile and restore your natural facial characteristics. Premier dentures look so natural, its unlikely anyone will notice that you are wearing them.

Essential dentures, on the other hand, are made of hard plastic teeth on a durable acrylic base. They do not stain and are durable. Our clinical dental technician will create each tooth individually from three layers of resin in order to achieve a natural appearance.

Advantages of customised dentures in Farnham

Having dentures that fit correctly not only helps reduce discomfort while eating or talking, but also reduces soreness to the mouth and gums. Properly fitted dentures will also reduce the need for denture adhesive and restore your chewing and bite power, reducing stress on the jaw joints. Moreover, confidence from wearing natural-looking dentures can help in social situations. Through addressing your individuality, custom-made dentures provide a number of benefits to improve your health and smile aesthetics.
