New Year’s Resolution – To Smile More

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Have people assumed that 2012 has been a bad year? Do you often get asked to cheer up despite feeling happy? Do you fear the camera at events and occasions? If this sounds like scenarios that are all too common then we know there may be something deep rooted that resists you to show how happy you actually are – your teeth.

A New Year often means a new start which is why many people set resolutions to achieve what they want for the next 12 months. But rather than giving up before January ends, why not make your New Year something to smile about with help from our orthodontists. We will help you on your journey to live your life again and show everyone just how happy you are.

Whether you are worried about crooked teeth, gaps or have previously tried braces and given up, we have a variety of methods which are proven to show results. These treatments are available to read about via the orthodontists page on our website and also the previous posts we have written, however we’re more than happy to discuss this with you directly over the phone or face to face.

We don’t believe in tooth extraction as a solution and this is only performed as a last resort, therefore you can rest assured alternative treatments that suit you and your needs are discussed. With so many different options available, we hope to provide you with an experience that is calm, informative and assuring as we know many people become anxious when it comes to dental work.

All of our staff at Nelson Road are specialists in recognising the signs someone is unhappy with their smile and we’re here to set things straight – not just your teeth. Get in touch with us via one the various methods on our website and we’ll be more than happy to support your New Year’s resolution for 2013.

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.


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.
