Brace Yourself: Alternative Treatments for Achieving Straighter Teeth

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Many people dread this time of year. Not because of the cost of presents or the chore of trying to find a new outfit but because they don’t want to be caught on one of the many cameras that capture what should be a joyous occasion. If this sounds like you, and your smile is getting in the way of you having a good time, then we at Nelson Road Dental are here to help with our experienced orthodontists.

Although there are many children and teenagers that have corrective methods to improve crooked teeth, we understand that some people go into adulthood still feeling conscious of their smile and take the steps to improve this in later years.

We also understand that what often puts many people off is the thought of having metal braces that are not very subtle. Fortunately, advances in the dental industry have meant that there are now alternatives to metal braces which may appeal to a wider market; here are just some of the options available.

Invisalign:

This is a very popular choice for many adults and late teens because Invisalign braces are subtle and don’t require the need for wires or brackets. The other benefit is that these use slight pressure to move your teeth into position, making it a more comfortable way to get your desired look.

Six Month Smile:

Although not suitable for everyone, we undertake a consultation with each patient to see whether they qualify for the six month smile. If this is the case, the method is painless and if started now, you’ll be seeing results by the summer.

Damon Brace:

This brace is the newest addition to the family of conventional braces. Fitted on the outside, the design is sleek creating less friction and showing results in less time than the conventional brace we all know. Suitable for particularly crooked teeth, this is the method if you want quicker results.

We hope this helps you in finding a solution to fixing your smile. We at Nelson Road avoid extractions at any cost so will discuss other options with you so if this a matter you are wishing to discuss, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the details on our contact us page.

Private Dentists Based Within the Chatham Area

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

A smile is one of the most important communication techniques we have as human beings. It can be used as a greeting, an indicator of our mood and a great way to make a good first impression, but when there is something wrong with our teeth it cannot just strip us of this essential tool but also our confidence. At Nelson Road Dental we have a fully qualified and experienced team who are passionate about putting the sparkle back in the nation’s smiles, so if you’re looking for a private dentist in Chatham or the surrounding areas, get in touch.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We understand that invasive dental work isn’t for everybody, and in these cases cosmetic dentistry is a great way of delivering great looking results. From teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to Lumineers and no-prep veneers, the creative flair of our dentistry team can take years off your appearance and help you to feel more like yourself again.

Implant Dentistry

If you’re fed up of not being able to enjoy all of your favourite food or eat out in a restaurant with confidence because of dentures, then implant dentistry is for you. Implants are titanium rods and act as a replacement for the root which then supports a crown to produce a jaw-droppingly natural aesthetic.

Dr Mohsin Uddin is the youngest ever clinician to be accepted onto the FGDP Diploma in Implant Dentistry, so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. Single, multiple and immediate implants are all available, so give us a call to discuss your options with us further.

Orthodontics

Gone are the days of massive metal braces making people feel self conscious, and there are now a number of techniques that can produce a straight and attractive smile. Our team will take you through the various methods of creating that perfect set of teeth you’ve always dreamed of.

To find out more about all of the dental treatments we can provide, give our team a call on 01634 851 317 to book a consultation, alternatively you can complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you.

Secure Loose Dentures with Dental Implants

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Loose dentures, especially your lower dentures, can be a real problem when they’re not properly supported. Your lower dentures experience a lot more movement than your upper dentures as they are required to chew and talk; the lower ridge is also prone to ‘shrinkage’ and food can be trapped underneath your dentures. As a result of this, a lot of people find their dentures uncomfortable and impractical. Fortunately, here at Nelson Road Dental we offer dental implants Rochester, Gillingham, Chatham and other areas that are fitted by Dr. Mohsin Uddin to support your dentures in order to get you back to your usual self.

We realise that a trip to the dentist isn’t on everyone’s list of favourite things to do and we know how important it is for you to be able to trust your dentist.

How do Dental Implants Work?

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Dental Implants work by acting as a replacement to lost or failing teeth to give you a full and natural looking smile once again. They are able to be administered as a single implant or multiple implants to suit your own specific needs and the procedure is very similar to any other dental procedure – so there is no need to start getting worried about how you will actually have these implants. We here at Nelson Road Dental Practice understand that many may be apprehensive about undergoing the implant procedure, and are able to provide useful information for those looking to have dental implants Kent.

When visiting us, all possible stress is taken away as Nelson Road Dental Practice and Dr. Mohsin Uddin are highly-skilled and experienced in this field, with Dr. Uddin himself being the youngest ever clinician to be accepted on to the highly competitive FGDP Diploma in implant Dentistry; being recognised as the Gold Standard in Implant Training by the General Dental Council. With Nelson Road Dental Practice you are assured to receive the dental implants Kent you really want.

The implants work by using titanium rods to act as a replacement for your natural root and support a crown so that they will look like natural teeth in your mouth. Virtually anyone can have these implants and upon deciding that this is the way forward for you and your mouth, we will provide an extensive consultation to assess your requirements and personal goals. In addition to this, we will take moulds of your teeth, a series of photographs and possibly a radiograph or CT Scan to fully understand where we can place a dental implant.

As also mentioned above, the procedure will be a comfortable one and will be carried out while you are awake, although sedation is sometimes used for nervous patients. You will be able to relax in our hands as we use the most advanced equipment and used air compressors whilst strictly following conditions set out by GDC and the Faculty of General Practitioners.

The success rate of dental implants Kent is reassuringly high, being proven to be 95% successful after a 10-year period and constantly increasing as technology and skills push forward. We here at Nelson Road Dental Practice are committed to using our expertise to keep pushing the success of this procedure forward and will continue to work with you afterwards by setting up regular evaluations with the hygienist making sure the implants are still working for you and that you are still smiling.

Replace Missing Gaps with Dental Implants Kent

Friday, May 20th, 2011

A phrase which can send fear through anyone at a wedding or family gathering is “let’s have a group photo.” It’s likely that within any group there will be those who the camera loves and vice-versa, whilst there will also be those who as soon as the camera comes out, head to the back of the group and grimace rather than smile due to missing gaps which become evident as they’re asked to say “cheese”. If you fall into the latter category, then dental implants Kent provided by Dr Mohsin Uddin here at Nelson Road Dental Practice could the ideal solution.

Dental implants act as a replacement tooth and ensure that from the moment the camera comes out, you’ll be able to confidently beam a shining smile.

What’s Required Before the Implants?

Before the procedure is carried out, a full consultation to assess your requirements, any deadlines you need them by, your medical and dental history, and your finances is required. This will also ensure that a unique plan can be drawn up.

During the consultation, moulds of your teeth along with a series of photos will be carried out in order to create a picture of the intended results, and to ensure that you have the implants which will improve your smile.

How Are Implants Fitted?

The process used to fit the implants follow strict guidelines set out by the GDC and Faculty of General Practitioners, meaning that you can rest assured that you’ll be getting the highest level of service to improve your smile.

The procedure for implants is very small and is carried out whilst you’re awake. A titanium rod is inserted to act as the root and this will support the crown to guarantee a natural look within your mouth.

Whether it’s a one tooth gap or a larger gap which needs to be covered, dental implants Kent provided by us here at Nelson Road Dental Practice promise to be the ideal solution, and with little to no discomfort felt following the procedure, you’ll be able to confidently flash your pearly whites as soon as you walk out the door.
