If you have Invisalign treatment or orthodontic treatment with braces we will carry out home whitening and provide you with one week’s worth of home whitening gel completely free of charge.
At Ethicare Dental we have a Specialist Orthodontist that not only sees patients from the Putney/Wandsworth area but also from all over London. Dr Acharya works Saturdays at Ethicare Dental and deals with our more complex Orthodontic cases.
Orthodontics involves moving the teeth using a variety of techniques. Treatment can be carried out on both children and adults. At your first visit Dr Acharya, our orthodontist will carry out an initial assessment. She will find out what your concerns are and after a thorough clinical examination a tailor made plan will be formulated which is specific to your needs and requirements.
There will often be different treatment options. Dr Acharya will discuss the pros and cons of each so that you will be fully informed about your treatment.
A variety of techniques are employed here at Ethicare Dental. These include fixed braces where the brackets can be of the standard metallic type or white brackets which are obviously far more cosmetic. There are various systems available which can be employed within fixed appliance therapy including the Damon system. Indeed the Damon system is Priti’s preferred fixed appliance system. Dr Acharya not only receives referrals from the Wandsworth and Putney area but also receives orthodontic referrals fro all over London. Dr Acharya is also an Invisalign certified dentist.
The Damon Bracket System® is not just a new product, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Conventional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.
1. Damon® passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon® tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
2. Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
3. A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Common Braces versus Damon Bracket System®
Conventional braces on the left are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon Bracket System® braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Dr Acharya is also trained in the use of Incognito lingual appliance therapy which allows the brackets to be positioned on the teeth where they can hardly been seen.
INCOGNITO LINGUAL APPLIANCES
Prospective patients are required to read and understand the Orthodontic consent form prior to treatment.
