Parkview Dental Centre offers a range of orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth
Many people desire a straighter smile to enhance their appearance.
We are pleased to offer a variety of orthodontic treatments at Parkview that can help with this by moving the teeth into a more aesthetic position.
A straighter smile is not only about the outward appearance, it can also have a huge benefit on the health of the teeth and gums, too. Crooked or overlapping teeth offer more nooks and crannies for plaque and bacteria to build up, which is harder to clean and can lead to gum disease. A straighter smile makes things easier to manage, helping patients to achieve optimum oral health.
Our solutions range from Invisalign and lingual braces, to tooth-coloured ceramic braces and traditional metal braces.
“Really well cared for by all staff who carried out my procedure in a friendly, cheerful and professional manner.”
“Very professional from start to finish. As a new patient I was extremely impressed and very pleased to have found such a great dentist in my new area.”
At Parkview Dental Centre in Ipswich we offer fixed braces systems that use brackets and wires that are attached to the teeth and cannot be removed.
They will stay in place throughout your treatment and you will have regular appointments so that we can make adjustments to the wires in order to move your teeth into the desired position.
Both ceramic braces and traditional metal braces are fitted to the front of the teeth but the brackets and wires are different. Ceramic braces use clear or tooth-coloured brackets and wires, so they are quite undetectable and are an excellent alternative to Invisalign. Traditional metal braces use silver-coloured brackets and wires but option is very effective where more complex treatment is required.
Lingual braces are fitted onto the back of the teeth, meaning they cannot be seen and are a very discreet treatment option.
We are pleased to offer Invisalign treatment at Parkview, the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners to gently move the teeth into the desired position. Invisalign aligners are not only clear, they are also removable. These aligners should be worn for 22 hours per day, and are taken out for eating meals and snacks, and for cleaning. This is why Invisalign fits perfectly around your lifestyle.
Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to enjoy your favourite foods and drinks during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also take out the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
At Parkview you can enjoy seeing a predicted virtual image of your smile before you even begin treatment, thanks to the ClinCheck software and our iTero scanner. Contact us today to book your remote Invisalign consultation.
Many adults undergo orthodontic treatment at Parkview Dental Centre due to a relapse, where their teeth have shifted back into their original position following teeth straightening treatment in their teens.
To prevent this, retainers are a key part of any orthodontic journey as they are designed to ensure the teeth remain in their new, straight position.
At Parkview, we will provide bonded and removable retainers as part of your orthodontic package. Bonded retainers are permanently fixed in place on the back of the front teeth. Removable retainers are also worn in conjunction with the bonded retainer and your dentist will explain how often to wear them.
