What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment aims to arrange teeth so that biting will be comfortable, the way your teeth touch each other when you eat, and your general oral health is improved. Moving molars is gradual, which means orthodontic treatment may take many months for you to get the results you want. The outcome is the smile that you have achieved while waiting is worth it and will look great for years to come.

Why have Orthodontic Treatment in London?

There are a number of benefits to teeth straightening. Misaligned teeth may be the reason for bite issues, which can damage the appearance of your gums as well. Orthodontic procedures can correct the position of the jaw as well as correct the alignment of teeth.

When teeth overlap, it makes spaces for plaque and tartar to develop. These places are difficult to clean out, so it’s more likely that they will suffer from gum disease. Straightening the teeth reduces the chances of tartar build-up and helps control bacteria in your mouth.

Latest Technologies

The world of dentistry is constantly changing and evolving to accommodate new technology and procedures. Here at Dental Care Centre, we always strive to provide the most advanced technology for teeth alignment and faster, more efficient, and more effective treatment to our patients.

We aim to stay abreast of advancements in the field and employ a range of modern orthodontic systems, software and machines to offer our patients with a high-level of treatment and enhanced comfort.

Although there is still no substitute for the skill, experience, and education of an experienced orthodontist, the advancements in tools and techniques enable us to deliver great results with far less discomfort and faster treatment than was available in the past.

Types of braces

Orthodontics has come a long way since the days when wearing braces meant having a mouth full of metal. Now, there are many different braces to choose from that are smaller, easier to wear and more effective than ever before.

Invisible braces

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into position. The aligners look like thin sports mouthguards and sit over your teeth. They’re removable and practically invisible to other people.

Traditional fixed metal braces

Traditional fixed metal braces use a combination of metal brackets, archwires and ligatures (elastic bands) to straighten teeth. They’re the ‘original’ braces. However, modern developments in technology allow the brackets to be much smaller, less bulky and more comfortable to wear.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are much like traditional fixed metal braces, the difference being the brackets are made from ceramic material and are the same colour as your teeth, making them less visible. Ceramic brackets are smoother and stronger than those used for traditional braces.

Self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces use brackets that have a sliding mechanism, which allows for the archwire to move in response to your teeth. This means they operate with less friction and there is no need for the elastic bands used with traditional braces. The most popular is the Damon system of self-ligating braces.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are attached to the back surface of your teeth. Aside from the aesthetic benefits, one of the advantages of lingual braces is that there is less risk of decalcification. This is because the inside surface of your teeth is more robust. A well-known brand of lingual braces is Incognito,

I have been with this dental practice for the past 10 years and have always received excellent care from my dentist Dr. Prasad. I would recommend this dental practice. Friendly service and a dentist who cares for his patients’ dental health .

Undine S.

Tor M.

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

Toby R.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Suzanne L.

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at new cross dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Dental Care Centre. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
