Sculpting that impeccable smile

Crafting the perfect smile is now more convenient than ever, all thanks to technological advancements. Orthodontists can now create a perfect smile in a matter of minutes by using a 2D facial photo and intelligent tooth silhouette. Sophisticated softwares can then meticulously adjust the position, shape, and size of each tooth to match your specific preferences.

Cosmetic dentistry, often referred to as aesthetic dentistry, has witnessed significant progress over the last decade. If you’re considering straightening your teeth, you may be faced with the choice between two orthodontic treatments: Invisalign and traditional braces. While both aim to achieve a straighter smile over time, they differ in several aspects.

Conventional braces feature brackets that are affixed to the teeth and connected by special wires. These brackets and wires gradually shift and align the teeth by exerting pressure over a period. Patients typically require dentist appointments every four to eight weeks – some appointments involve brief checkups to monitor treatment progress, while others may be longer, involving adjustments, wire replacements, and rubber bands.

This is where Invisalign comes into play. Invisalign is a specific brand of removable clear aligners custom-fitted to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not employ brackets and wires and is nearly invisible.

The aligners are made from a soft, flexible patented plastic known as SmartTrack™, composed of medical-grade, multilayer polyurethane plastic. It is engineered to facilitate more effective tooth movement and has been clinically proven to move teeth 50% faster with 75% more predictability in their movement.

When worn, Invisalign aligners consistently apply pressure to the teeth, gradually reshaping the bone in the direction of this pressure.

Let’s assess this groundbreaking innovation in cosmetic dentistry:

  • Invisalign is a specialised tool designed for teeth straightening. It’s manufactured by Align Technology, which does not diagnose or treat individual cases. The success or failure of Invisalign treatment hinges on the expertise of the orthodontist administering it.

  • To attain successful results with this method, it’s essential to rely on an orthodontist or dentist who is trained in Invisalign treatment. Over one million patients worldwide have undergone Invisalign treatment, and this number continues to grow.

  • Invisalign trays are convenient as they can be removed, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss as you normally would for proper dental hygiene. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or metal brackets, eliminating the need for frequent dental appointments for adjustments.

  • Invisalign braces exert precise control over the force and timing of tooth movement. During each treatment stage, specific teeth are gradually repositioned based on your customised treatment plan devised by your orthodontist.

  • Invisalign aligners, crafted from thermoplastic material, resemble teeth-whitening trays and are tailored to shift your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. You should wear these aligners for 20 to 22 hours daily, as failure to do so may impede your desired results.

  • The aligners are replaced approximately every 2 weeks, with more complex movements requiring 3 weeks of wear and less complex movements necessitating 10 days of wear. It’s worth noting that Invisalign treatment is often more expensive than traditional braces due to the higher laboratory fees paid directly to the manufacturer, Align Technology.

  • While technology is continually advancing, there are some complex orthodontic cases that aligners cannot effectively treat or correct. 

In summary, Invisalign is an excellent choice if you seek fewer dentist visits. Most treatment plans include progress check-ups scheduled every six weeks, which corresponds to changing aligners approximately once every three trays.

Moreover, you won’t need to visit our orthodontists for tightening or band adjustments, as you’ll have each set of trays at home. Simply swap out your trays every two weeks (or as recommended in your treatment plan) to maintain your progress.

Your health and wellness start with the choices you make for your oral care.

Ever considered why you go to the dentist? Most often than not, it is only when your tooth starts aching in the middle of the night and you realise that it’s time to go see your dentist. And god forbid if you don’t have a dentist, you start your frantic search by asking people around you, Google it and read reviews to find the perfect dentist who may be your god-send and take the pain away.

It is time you heard the truth. Why do you think bikes and cars have service milestones? Why do you think parlour appointments happen nearly around the same time every month? Why do regular PTA meetings happen at school? And why do we have monthly review  cycles at the office? We do not wait or skip any of these. And if we do, we know what happens.

Now ask yourself. Do you visit the dentist or the doctor for general check ups on a regular basis? Do you take the kids to visit their dentists and doctors? You know you must. As the age old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. Need we say more.

Our mouth serves as a gateway to our overall well-being, emphasising the significance of maintaining oral health. The condition of our oral hygiene can be a telling indicator of our general health. Here’s a simple self-assessment for you to try: stand in front of a mirror and smile. Observe any stains or cracks as this can be an initial sign of potential issues. Next, open your mouth and tilt your head, first upward and then downward, to inspect for stains behind the teeth and dark spots on the tooth surfaces. This basic examination will provide insight into your current oral hygiene status.

Your well being is in your hands. Literally!

Oral health is as important as general health. Unhygienic dental conditions lead to other health problems and have an impact on overall well being. Here are some quick tips to build into your lifestyle. Remain dentally fit and live well! 

1. Brushing

The ideal brushing time should be no more than 2 minutes. The brush should be held in a slanting position, not vertically, and moved gently in a circular motion. Brush your teeth enamel thoroughly. Your tongue and gums should be cleaned softly with a brush, by applying mild pressure.

It is not sufficient to brush just once a day i.e. in the morning. Brushing your teeth just before going to bed, after dinner, is equally important. The most ideal would be to brush after every meal.

2. Flossing

Though we brush thoroughly, we cannot reach certain areas of the mouth. Flossing helps reach gum lines and in between the teeth. You must floss in between the teeth every time you brush. Use fresh floss for every tooth to ensure food articles do not stick from the old floss.

3. Eat healthy

Calcium, Vitamin C and Vitamin D are important for your dental health. For calcium, ensure there is an intake of milk and milk products. For vitamin C, ensure you have rich citrus fruits.

Avoid sticky or sweet food, as much as possible. Also, avoid taking drinks that are too hot or too cold. Eat fruits and vegetables to strengthen teeth.

4. Say no to bad habits

Chewing tobacco and smoking are the worst habits that affect your oral hygiene. Avoid this to reduce the risk of oral problems and, inevitably, oral cancer.

5. Visit your dentist regularly

Like general health, your dental health needs a regular check. Make it a habit to visit your dentist regularly for scaling your teeth. This will keep your dental health in check.

Additionally, it’s important not to wait until you experience tooth pain before visiting your dentist. Be proactive in identifying warning signs such as gum swelling, tooth sensitivity, and gum bleeding, as these can indicate potential dental issues down the road.

Every child deserves a smile. Take a stand towards healthy living!

As parents, it’s our responsibility to tend to our child’s personal hygiene right from the moment they come into this world. Part of this duty involves caring for their dental hygiene and, as they grow, guiding them on how to care for it themselves. Here are some key principles that you should instil in your children:

1. Begin early 

For infants, run a clean damp cloth every time they drink milk. Don’t forget to gently clean their tongue as well. This practice should be maintained until your child is ready for regular brushing.

2. Watch out for tooth decay

Tooth decay can affect babies too. Make sure your baby doesn’t fall asleep with a bottle in their mouth, as this can lead to ‘nursing bottle caries,’ which erodes the enamel and impacts their front teeth.

3. Regular dental check-ups – once in 6 months

During their formative years, children should see a dentist regularly. This period is crucial for their dental health, as it can have a significant impact on their overall well-being. Since children may not be able to express their discomfort, schedule regular dental visits. Keep an eye out for any signs of trouble, just as you would during your own dental check-ups.

4. Brush twice a day

The first rule parents should enforce is for their children to brush their teeth twice a day. This routine helps keep dental plaque and tooth decay at bay. Parents should patiently teach their children the proper brushing technique, understanding that manual dexterity may be limited in their early years.

5. Cultivate healthy habits

Children are impressionable and need to be educated about healthy habits. It’s easier when these habits are already part of your family’s lifestyle. Keep an eye on their eating and drinking habits to ensure they develop moderation. Encourage them to drink plenty of water. Patience is key when teaching them these habits. Flossing is another practice that parents should actively promote to their children.
