It is important to maintain good dental hygiene so that your teeth are clean and white and that your gums are strong and healthy. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis helps make sure that you have no underlying dental issues and if any problems present themselves they can be treated quickly and effectively early on, before they can cause complications or irreversible damage.

Here at Chelsea and Fulham Dentist we want everyone to enjoy a healthy and happy smile, so we recommend that you have a check-up at least once every six months. We also recommend that you visit the hygienist twice a year to remove excess plaque and tartar which can build in your mouth despite good brushing techniques.

Factors which affect dental health

Unfortunately there are some factors which can mean that we are more prone to dental issues and complications than other people. This includes misalignment of the teeth such as crookedness, overlapping, gaps in the mouth, overcrowding and protruding teeth. These factors can influence how effective our dental hygiene routine actually is, allowing bacteria to build up in hard-to-reach areas and resulting in increased plaque and tartar formation which then leads to an array of dental complications. Thanks to advances in dental technology it is easier than ever before to address the misalignment issues of your teeth and by speaking to your dentist you can find out about Invisalign Fulham and how it can help create a beautiful and healthy smile for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign Fulham is a highly popular form of cosmetic dental treatment which helps correct the misalignment issues of teeth. In the last two decades, Invisalign Fulham has helped correct millions of smiles across the world and continues to be a popular choice of teeth straightening system amongst dentists and patients alike. Traditionally teeth straightening is carried out using metal dental braces, which are fixed to the surfaces of your teeth for a certain period of time in order to pull them into better positions. This is a highly effective method of teeth straightening, however the majority of people are reluctant to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment as an adult and the availability of Invisalign Fulham is a very welcome alternative.

Thanks to Invisalign more people than ever before are now addressing the misalignment issues of their teeth. Speak to us at our practice to find out how this treatment could help correct the aesthetic issues of your smile too. It is important that you have healthy teeth and gums and that there are no underlying dental issues which may be affected by moving your teeth, therefore you will undergo a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums before you begin treatment. In contrast to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign works using clear thermoplastic aligners which can be taken out of your mouth and replaced as necessary. Depending on the extent of misalignment to begin with, the treatment period can range from 12 weeks to 1 year for you to achieve a beautiful smile that you can be proud to show off to the world.
