GHAURI DENTAL CENTRE - HESTON

He was awarded a Master of Science Degree in Orthodontics from University of London and awarded Membership in Orthodontics of both the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This was followed by entry onto the Specialist list in Orthodontics of the General Dental Council in 2005.

GHAURI DENTAL CENTRE – NOTTING HILL GATE

We provides Inman Aligner services.

The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It is the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult relapse.

In the past anyone with crooked teeth has had only a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work well but are slow and can also be costly.

Because of this many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it.

However the Inman Aligner now gives us all a very real alternative. Because it works so quickly and efficiently, if you don't like the idea of having brackets stuck to your teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work, you can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.

This also means that anyone considering veneers to align their teeth now has a far more conservative solution. You might not even need veneers at all.

Even if veneers are absolutely necessary because your teeth are so discoloured and mis-shapen, the Inman Aligner the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared. This way you can get a far more conservative solution.

The Inman Aligner is not just an orthodontic appliance. Many cosmetic dentists are calling it the "missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry."

It has also been described as the "Greatest Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry since the porcelain veneer".

Not every case is possible and of course there are limitations, but if you are suitable you could get a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost.

 

GENERAL

Orthodontics treatment can provide

Straight teeth which are easy to clean.
An improved bite.
Ease with eating and speaking.
A beautiful smile.

 

Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth of the teeth, jaws and face, is in high demand. Nearly one million people in the UK started having orthodontics last year and more adults than ever before require treatment. Why? Orthodontic treatment is about making the best of your teeth; it's about improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once you can bite together correctly, you can eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily. And your smile will benefit immensely!

The Starting Point

Most courses of orthodontic treatment begin with a referral from a general dentist to a specialist. Depending on what treatment is needed, most patients are seen by a specialist in a local practice or by a consultant in hospital. Some patients are treated by dentists with extra training and experience to treat the milder cases.

These are some of the most common reasons for a referral:

·         Protruding upper front teeth - one of the most common dental problems.

·         Crowding - a narrow jaw may mean there is not enough room for your teeth, resulting in crowding. Conversely, some patients have significant gaps between their teeth.

·         Asymmetry - particularly when the centre lines of the upper and lower front teeth do not match, perhaps because the teeth have drifted or the position of the jaw has shifted.

·         A deep bite - when your upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much.

·         A reverse bite - when your upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth.

·         An open bite - when your front teeth remain apart when your back teeth meet; the tongue is often still visible between the upper and lower front teeth.

·         Impacted teeth - in some patients, secondary teeth come through in the wrong position or do not erupt at all. Orthodontic treatment can help bring these teeth into the correct position.

Getting Treatment

Every patient needs tailor-made treatment plan made by an orthodontist or suitably trained dentist and agreed by you . In order to decide what treatment is required for you, your orthodontist will need to carry out a full assessment of your teeth which is likely to include x-rays, impressions (moulds of the teeth) and photographs. Treatment can take more than two years so it is important you are happy from the outset with what is recommended. Braces are almost always needed.

Those which are used most often are:

·         A fixed brace - this is the most common type of brace today, often known as "train tracks". Brackets are glued onto the teeth and linked by wires. Small elastic hoops are often used to hold the wire in position. The wires exert gentle pressure to move the teeth into a new position. The brackets can be metal, ceramic or even gold and the elastic hoops come in many colours.

·         A removable brace - this is sometimes used for correcting a simple problem, such as moving a single tooth or expanding the dental arch. It has a plastic base plate with wires and springs attached. Removable braces need to be worn all the time except for cleaning or sport.

·         Functional appliances - these are used to harness the growth of the jaws and improve way the upper and lower teeth meet. There are several designs all of which fit on to both the upper and lower teeth and hold the lower jaw forward. They are mostly removable but should be worn as near to full-time as possible.

·         Retainers - at the end of treatment, some patients may need to wear retainers to hold their teeth in the new position. These can be removable or fixed and are an important part of treatment.
