Despite common misconceptions, braces are not just for those of the younger generation. We offer a multitude of options at Northlight Dental, apart from the traditional ‘train track’ form of braces. Lingual braces and discreet braces are examples of more subtle options, meaning the dental work is being done without being visible: this may be a perfect option for individuals who are older. At Northlight Dental in Milton Keynes we offer a variety of treatments for our patients, so there is always an option for everyone. Braces in Milton Keynes may be ideal for you if you have crooked teeth, or if you are just looking to inject a boost of confidence into your smile, achieved with all of our patients after treatment. At our practice, we can discuss with you the best option to fix your dental insecurities!
I’m worried about braces ruining my confidence! Are there other options?
At our practice, we offer a multitude of options including the traditional brace (commonly used with the younger generation) as well as alternative options such as discreet tooth coloured braces. These ensure your confidence stays intact, whilst working towards a flawless smile. Lingual braces are viewed as a more discreet option, using a metal wire that is placed behind the teeth so that they are not visible, using modern CAD/CAM technology to ensure the best treatment is provided.
Invisalign is a form of clear aligners, using a retainer style without the metal appearance. Invisalign alone has offered confidence to over 480,000 patients.
So, if you struggle with confidence about the appearance of your smile, braces may be a perfect long-term option for you. This long-lasting effect is certain to increase your confidence, with the inexpensive and natural looking options that are available with braces in Milton Keynes, here at North Light Dental.
What if I am anxious about visiting a dentist?
Many patients are faced with anxiety when visiting the dentist, which is why many people do not visit their local practice nearly as much as they should. However Dr Sunil Passan is a member of our team, and specialises in patient anxiety in both our practice and a medical setting. We recommend an initial consultation for our anxious patients to help ease their nerves, during this we may offer the option of sedation to ease a patient’s nerves and anxiety.
What is the meaning of orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry dealing with methods to straighten out irregularities or imperfections within the mouth. Orthodontists are professionals who have completed a further level of study to specialise in orthodontics, one example of its use is the fitting of braces.
How long do I have to wear braces for?
The length of treatment varies depending on the patient, treatment can last as little as six months or more complex cases can last up to two years.
Sometimes people are worried about whether braces will cause them pain as they have to be worn for a period of time. Although they do cause some discomfort, braces are relatively pain free. Braces in Milton Keynes can help achieve a perfect smile using your own natural teeth, rather than using veneers or bridges, which are a more artificial method.
