Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic

The future is lingual

Lingual braces in Farnham are an option here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic for our patients who are concerned about how metal braces would look on their front teeth. Lingual braces are clever in that they are applied to the backs of the teeth, so people will not notice that you have braces.

What are lingual braces?

As lingual braces are placed on the backs of the teeth, these types of braces are less noticeable and are a popular choice among our patients who are concerned with wearing traditional fixed metal braces. Lingual braces in Farnham are recommended for teenagers and adults with overcrowded teeth and bite problems. The outcomes are comparable to conventional metal braces, without any of the worry of having that train track look.

How do they differ from traditional braces?

Lingual braces in Farnham are custom-made to your teeth, whereas traditional braces are comprised of standardised brackets, bands and wires.

Here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic we use Incognito lingual braces as they fit to the back of the teeth where they are very difficult to see, whereas conventional braces are mounted to the front of the teeth and can be very noticeable.

Can anyone have Incognito braces?

Adults and teenagers over 13 years old are prime candidates for Incognito braces. In most cases, being a candidate for traditional braces means that you are also a candidate for lingual braces.

After a thorough initial examination from our Specialist in Orthodontics, Kostas Spathoulas, we will be able to provide professional guidance about your candidacy for lingual braces in Farnham.

What dental issues can be treated using lingual braces?

Lingual braces can be used to correct many dental problems. If you suffer from crooked, crowded or overlapping teeth, they could be the right option for you to improve your smile.

Why Incognito braces?

Incognito braces in Farnham offer many advantages, such as being permanent, so you do not have to worry about changing or losing aligners.

They are mounted on the back of the teeth where people cannot see them and are designed to fit snugly to your teeth for increased comfort.

Get your smile back with quality dentures in Farnham

If you are considering dentures, already have them or you are reading about dentures for someone else, its likely that you have some questions about them. Dentures come in many forms, and choosing the right denture for you can be confusing.

Finding the perfect fit for you is very important as dentures can improve your quality of life, or in some cases can be more a hassle than a help. Here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, we believe that should never be the case, and we do everything we can to make sure your denture fits perfectly.

Choosing the perfect fit

In Farnham, dentures are crafted specifically for you, and are made to fit perfectly. We use special measurements, old photographs and digital imaging to create a denture that fits you perfectly and functions well too.

At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, our clinical dental technician, Frank Johnson, offers two different types of removable denture.

Premier dentures are handmade to reproduce your smile as faithfully as possible. These are often reproduced so accurately and look so natural that other people probably wont be able to tell youre wearing dentures.

Essential dentures are our other type of removable dentures in Farnham, which are made from durable plastic on an acrylic base, both designed to have excellent stain resistance and breakage resistance. Each tooth is constructed in layers to create a natural look.

Our clinical dental technician offers a free denture consultation to advise you on which type would suit you best, taking cost, time and other factors into account.

Implant supported dentures for extra stability

One problem that long-time denture users experience is jawbone shrinkage. Our jawbones need stimulation, which is usually provided by the roots of our teeth. When we have lost all of our teeth, the jaw bone begins to shrink, creating a sunken look to your lips and cheeks.

A more permanent solution when considering dentures is an implant-stabilised denture. This treatment uses dental implants to provide stimulation to your jawbone and provide a stable anchor for your dentures to attach to.

Dental implants are regarded as the most reliable option for tooth replacement as they work with the natural function of your jaw, making them a secure and long-lasting solution.
