Getting braces is seen as a right of passage for many teenagers and, with so many different teeth straightening treatments available, it can be overwhelming as to which treatment choice to go with. Getting braces as a teenager means that not only will they have a lifetime of straighter smiles, but getting braces also ensures that their teeth and jaws are properly aligned, which then promotes better oral and physical health. 

As a teenager, this is the ideal age and time to address any orthodontic concerns as it’s easier to reposition teeth and jaws whilst they are still developing. It is also more likely that teenagers will undergo orthodontic treatment if their peers and friends are going through similar treatment around the same time. 

In terms of treatment, there are a few different orthodontic brace treatments that your teen can undergo, however, traditional fixed braces tend to be the most popular choice. With this in mind, here are some reasons why orthodontic braces are a good choice for teenagers. 

Why Do Teenagers Need Orthodontic Braces? 

As children grow, so too do their mouths. Milk teeth fall out and are replaced with adult teeth, but as the mouth and jawline is also growing and developing, this is where issues can develop. Many children encounter dental problems such as crowded and crooked teeth, gaps in between teeth, overbites, underbites and crossbites and this can then go on into teenage years, which then can cause problems with self-confidence and appearance. 

It is recommended that orthodontic braces and treatment is applied during teenage years as it is a time of change and means that treatment can happen more quickly than if treatment is carried out as an adult, where teeth may be more reluctant to move into the correct positions. For complex dental cases, orthodontic braces are the better choice as opposed to aligners, as orthodontic braces exert pressure on the entire tooth, instead of the upper part of the teeth when using aligners. This then pushes the tooth into the right position from the top to bottom which is far more effective. 

Orthodontic Braces Offer Health Benefits

Having a straighter, more attractive smile is just one of the number of benefits that having orthodontic braces can provide. In addition to boosting self-esteem and having a more confident smile, there are also some health benefits that come from orthodontic braces, too. If teeth are crooked or overcrowded, then they can be more difficult to clean. Teeth that are straight are much easier to brush and floss, which then leads to fewer cavities and less risk of decay. Over, under and cross bites can put unnecessary stress and pressure on certain teeth, depending on the angle and location, which can lead to chips and cracks in teeth, sore jaw muscles and sensitivity. By having orthodontic braces as a teenager, this can spare issues that come from having a misaligned bite, such as headaches and pain, as they grow into adults. Straighter teeth can also help improve chewing, breathing, sleeping and speech. 

What Are The Different Types Of Orthodontic Braces? 

There are now more types of orthodontic braces and treatments than ever before. However, here at Dental Solutions, we will be happy to discuss the best treatment option for you during an initial consultation. We primarily offer fixed teen braces and Invisalign treatment for teenagers, but we can discuss this with you further. 

In terms of orthodontic braces for teenagers, fixed metal braces are perhaps the most effective treatments. But, as many teenagers are concerned about their appearance when it comes to having braces, more discreet options, such as Invisalign, might be more appropriate. There are, of course, pros and cons to each orthodontic brace treatment, which we can help with. 

Conventional Metal Braces

Metal braces have been used for years and are a treatment option that have helped deliver plenty of exceptional outcomes once removed. Modern metal braces are more discreet than ever and help to correct a multitude of different dental issues and concerns, including jaw and tooth alignment. 

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign braces are clear, plastic aligners that sit over the top of teeth. For teens who may be more self-conscious about their appearance and don’t require much in the way of teeth or jaw correction, Invisalign braces may be the preferred choice. They can be easily removed, cleaned and are a good choice for teenagers who play sports or an instrument. 

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces use ceramic brackets, as opposed to metal ones, in order to mimic the natural tooth colour. This makes it a good alternative for teenagers who may be conscious about their appearance, but require the correction or realignment treatment that comes with metal braces. However, ceramic braces can stain easily so require thorough care and cleaning. 

Visit Dental Solutions

When it comes to orthodontic braces, it’s wise to explore which option is best for your teenager. Here at Dental Solutions, we offer initial consultations with our dental team in order to find the right treatment for you and discuss any questions you may have. We have a dedicated peripatetic orthodontist – Marcin Piekara – who has over 15 years of experience in children’s and adult’s orthodontics. To arrange your consultation, please contact us today

An implant in between two teeth, where the implant is loose.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the most common solution to improve the natural appearance and comfort. Dental implants are also likely to last for years – they’re sturdy, can prevent further tooth loss and are the most natural-looking solution. However, there is a small risk of dental implants failing, so what do you do if your dental implant is loose? 

There are a number of reasons as to why your dental implant might be loose and often, most of these reasons have nothing to do with a failed dental implant itself. If your dental implant is loose, then before you start worrying, here are some things you can do whilst waiting for your dentist appointment. 

How Does A Dental Implant Work? 

A dental implant is a screw that is placed into your jaw bone and then to which a replacement tooth is fixed. If one tooth needs to be replaced, then a single crown implant is often what is used, whereas if more than one tooth needs to be replaced, then a dental bridge, or all on 4 dental implants, will likely be installed. 

What Causes A Loose Dental Implant?

Many patients that have issues with dental implants often wonder what has happened when their dental implant is loose. A healthy dental implant will stay fixed and stable in the mouth as it is secured to the jawbone and should not move or wiggle. In most cases, when a dental implant becomes loose, it is within one week of the implant being fitted and it has failed to bond with the jawbone. This then causes the implant to be loose. 

However, in most cases, a loose implant has nothing to do with the screw that has been implanted into your jaw. The problem can often come from the artificial tooth that is attached to the implant and this can be down to impact or everyday wear and tear. 

What Are The Signs Of A Loose Dental Implant? 

Both early and late-stage dental implant failure can often be signalled by some of the following complications: 

  • Chewing becomes more difficult
  • Gums around the implant site are inflamed
  • Unusual gum recession
  • Noticeable swelling around the implant site or gums
  • Noticeable loosening or a slight wobble of the implant
  • Discomfort or pain

Whilst these aren’t exclusive symptoms of implant failure, if you experience any of the above symptoms, then please give us a call so that we can get you in as soon as possible to provide an examination of your dental implants and establish if your dental implant is loose or not. 

If you’ve had your implants for a while and have noticed that one has started to feel loose, then the problem could be down to bone loss. Sometimes, an infection can be the cause and this can then impact your implant and cause it to move around. When your dental implant is loose, catching the problem early is important, so try to make an appointment with us as soon as possible. 

If Your Dental Implant Is Loose, Don’t Take Any Unnecessary Risks

Whether you have one single dental implant or a dental bridge, dental implants are a great option that can replace teeth that were lost. Dental implants need to be maintained and issues can appear even years after being first fitted. Routine dental care and maintenance is important with dental implants and this can help prevent any damage or loosening of the implant. 
If one of your implants is loose, then it’s best not to assume what the issue is. It’s important that, as soon as you notice that your dental implant is loose, you contact us to make an appointment with our team of dentists and implant specialists so that we can get you in and carry out investigations as to what is going on below the surface.

5 Top Tips For Cleaning Braces

by on 12th July 2021 | Posted in blog

When you have fixed metal braces, keeping them clean is extremely important. Braces can often act as a barrier between you and your teeth, so ensuring that they are clean is important for both your oral health and maintaining the care of your braces. 

As a teenager, having fixed metal braces fitted can present some new challenges to your dental hygiene regime, so it is essential that your teenager applies some extra steps and effort into their overall dental hygiene. By cleaning their braces and looking after their oral health, when the braces are removed, they will be left with a beautiful, straight smile. 

Taking care of and cleaning fixed braces as a teenager is relatively easy, once you have the top tips and know-how, so here are some top tips for your teenager to add to their oral health regime. 

Choose The Right Toothbrush For Cleaning Braces

When cleaning braces, the right toothbrush is imperative to creating an excellent oral hygiene routine. When you have braces fitted, your teenager may notice that keeping their teeth looking and feeling clean is a bit more difficult. Food and debris can often get trapped and build up around the braces and in small gaps between the teeth, which can be harder to reach with braces in the way. 

The toothbrush they were using prior to getting braces fitted is likely not going to be suitable anymore and, whilst a standard toothbrush will work, there are some better options. An electric toothbrush is a good option as it can clean both the braces and teeth with varying amounts of pressure. There are also some toothbrushes that are made specifically for cleaning braces. 

Brush On The Go

As a teenager, having fixed braces whilst at school or college can cause them to be more self-conscious with their appearance, especially after eating. Having a tool for cleaning braces and teeth whilst on the go can make a huge difference and interdental brushes are great little brushes that can be easily stored in a bag and used discreetly. They can bend and adjust to get in even the smallest of gaps and remove any trapped food that can make teenagers feel self-conscious when smiling. It might also be worth having a small toothbrush and toothpaste kit to hand that can be easily used when out and about and freshen up their smile. 

Watch What You Eat

When teenagers have braces fitted, it’s important that they watch what they eat to avoid causing damage to the fittings. They should try to avoid eating hard, crunchy and chewy foods such as apples, bagels, corn on the cob, popcorn and nuts, as these can put extra pressure on braces and can cause the brackets or wires to break, which can then cause discomfort. 

When it comes to eating crunchy foods, your teenager should either avoid them or try to cut them into small and bite-sized pieces. Even soft foods such as bread, pasta, rice and cake can cause issues with brace cleanliness, with soft, sticky debris getting stuck in the gap between the tooth and brace. Improving their dental hygiene routine can prevent this from happening, which can then reduce their risk of developing tooth decay in the future. 

Be Gentle When Cleaning Braces

Whilst braces are made from strong and sturdy materials, it’s important that your teenager uses care when cleaning braces. Bristles that are too hard, or if their brushing technique is too vigorous, can loosen or even snap a bracket. When your teenager is brushing their teeth, make sure that they are not using too much pressure and are gentle. 

Follow Up With Flossing

Flossing with braces can seem impossible, as wires can obstruct the gaps in between your teeth. However, it is important that your teenager flosses when cleaning braces. There are some different ways you can floss and get between the gaps in teeth, but it might take them a little more time and care, but flossing is well worth the effort if they want to keep their teeth and braces clean. 

Floss picks, which are very small pieces of floss on the end of a plastic stick, are very easy to use and can get in between your teeth. Water flossing is also a good option for teenagers with braces, as it is the easiest option. Water flossers push water through the gaps between teeth and can quickly and easily remove plaque and food particles.

Enlighten Your Smile With Enlighten Teeth Whitening 

The perfect smile is becoming more and more sought after, with around a quarter of UK adults having some form of cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, as it is quite simple and straightforward. This means that it is a quick and affordable way to almost instantly achieve a healthier looking smile. 

There are many different teeth whitening treatments available, but if you really want to enlighten your smile, then choose Enlighten Teeth Whitening here at Dental Solutions. With whitening results of up to 16 shades, it’s clear to see why this teeth whitening treatment is so popular. 

What Makes Enlighten Whitening Different? 

There are numerous different teeth whitening treatments available, both for at-home and in-clinic use. What makes Enlighten teeth whitening different is that it is the only system which  guarantees Vita Shade. This is the whitest shade on a regular dentist’s shade guide. This applies to everyone, no matter your age or the current shade of your teeth. For those people who enjoy coffee and red wine, then this is great news as Enlighten can reduce staining on teeth and whiten more than any other whitening treatment. 

Using a quarter less hydrogen peroxide than other standard teeth whitening methods, choosing to enlighten your smile with Enlighten Whitening means that your teeth have more permeability to oxygen, which then breaks down staining. Enlighten is an innovative teeth whitening treatment that achieves whiter, more natural-looking teeth whiteness than other methods. 

Whilst Enlighten treatment uses proven science and highly-advanced technologies, it also uses materials that have been used and trusted in dentistry for over a century. Enlighten whitening gel contains a lower concentration percentage of hydrogen peroxide, which means that the whitening treatment won’t damage your teeth or gums, unlike other whitening treatments. 

Enlighten Teeth Whitening is an extremely effective treatment and can give long-lasting results of around 3 years or more with proper aftercare. If you want to enlighten your smile, or would like more information on Teeth Whitening here at Dental Solutions, then please get in touch with us today! Don’t forget to enter our Enlighten whitening competition, too!

    National Smile Month 2021 is here and we’re here to help promote the importance of having good oral health and the value of a healthy smile! Between 17th May and 17th June, the Oral Health Foundation is working to raise awareness of important oral health issues and we’re here to help share tips and advice on how to look after your smile and overall oral health. 

    Maintaining a healthy smile is relatively simple, but for some people it can be difficult. Despite the huge improvements in oral health over the past 40 years, there are still some barriers to be crossed and oral disease is still far too common. Here are four key National Smile Month messages to keep in mind when it comes to better oral health:

    • Brush your teeth for two minutes a day, in the morning and last thing at night, with a fluoride toothpaste. 
    • Clean in between your teeth at least every other day. 
    • Cut down your intake of sugary foods and drinks.
    • Visit your dentist regularly. 

    Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment and learning proper dental hygiene habits means that it’s easier to avoid costly dental procedures and long-term health issues in the future. In celebration of National Smile Month 2021, here are some further tips and advice on recognising and preventing oral health issues.

    Symptoms Of Dental and Oral Health Issues

    You shouldn’t wait until you have symptoms to visit your dentist, as often this means that the symptoms have developed and could require more work. Visiting your dentist twice a year means that your dentist will usually be able to spot any issues or problems before symptoms begin. If you experience any of these signs, then you should make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible. 

    • Ulcers, sores or tender areas that won’t heal
    • Bleeding or swollen gums, especially after flossing or brushing 
    • Sudden sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
    • Chronic bad breath or dry mouth 
    • Pain, toothache and loose teeth 
    • Swelling or pain when chewing or biting 

    Causes Of Dental and Oral Diseases

    Your mouth is home to all sorts of bacteria and, whilst some of them are part of the normal flora of your mouth, there are some which can cause and contribute to dental and oral diseases. As part of National Smile Month 2021, we’re helping to spread awareness of these diseases and how they can affect your health. 

    Often, bacteria that lives in your mouth are generally harmless, there are some instances where it can become damaging to your teeth, oral health and overall wellbeing. Bacteria that lives near your gum line can create a sticky substance called plaque, which can then accumulate and harden, causing tartar that can be tricky to remove. Regular brushing and flossing can help to prevent this build up, but if left, it can cause your gums to inflame, leading to potential gingivitis. 

    We use our teeth and mouths a lot during the day, so it isn’t surprising that, over time, things can go wrong, especially if you don’t maintain proper oral care. A lot of dental and oral diseases can be prevented with proper hygiene, but you are likely to experience at least one dental problem during your lifetime. 

    Cavities

    Cavities, also known as tooth decay, are areas of the tooth or teeth which have been permanently damaged and may even develop small holes, which can often be painless meaning that you don’t realise they are there. Cavities are a fairly common dental complaint and occur when food, bacteria and acid coat your teeth and form plaque. The acid sitting on your teeth can start to eat away at the enamel and then the dentin which lies underneath and then, over time, this leads to permanent damage. 

    Sensitive Teeth 

    Although not a disease, sensitive teeth can have a huge impact on your oral health and can be the result or an indication of further dental issues. If you have sensitive teeth, then you’ll likely feel discomfort or pain whilst having hot or cold foods or drinks. It can sometimes occur after root canal, fillings or having braces removed, but can also be the result of gum disease, receding gums or worn down crowns or fillings. 

    Most of the time, sensitive teeth can be treated at home with a change in your daily hygiene routine. There are toothpastes and mouthwashes specially formulated for sensitive teeth. 

    Oral Cancers

    Oral cancers can include cancer of the gums, tongue, lips, cheeks or palate of the mouth and in most cases, dentists are often the first person to recognise the symptoms of oral cancers. Alcohol and tobacco use are amongst some of the biggest risk factors when it comes to oral cancers. If you notice a lump in your mouth, ulcers or sores that don’t heal or frequent bleeding, then you should get these checked out as soon as possible. The earlier that oral cancer is diagnosed, the better the outcome. 

    Our oral health is hugely important and, in recent years, there have been connections made between our oral health and general wellbeing. A healthy mouth can help to maintain a healthy body. Looking after your oral health is vital and this National Smile Month, we’re here to help you with any oral or dental concerns you may have. Contact Dental Solutions today to arrange a checkup, or get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns about your dental health and we’ll be happy to help!

    Considering a smile makeover to improve your smile?

    Find Out More At Our Smile Makeover Evening

    A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance and health of your teeth and gums through a series of dentistry procedures. The best way to decide which treatments you’d need is to speak to your dentist who will be able to answer all of your questions. This is why we are hosting a smile makeover open evening.

    We would like to invite you to our smile makeover open evening, taking place on Tuesday 15th June from 3 pm to 7.30 pm. During the event, prospective patients will enjoy a 30-minute consultation with Gavin Laidlaw and have the chance to ask questions and find out more about the procedure. Lauren Westhead, our qualified Invisalign and Quick Straight Teeth short term orthodontics provider will also be available to answer questions.

    Save the date: Tuesday 15th June | 3 pm – 7.30 pm

      See what our patients have to say…


      “I have been a patient at Dental Solutions for a while as I had orthodontics when I was 16 which straightened my teeth perfectly. I decided to have a consultation with Gavin- there was nowhere else I’d consider. He recommended a course of whitening and after discussing the pros and cons of cosmetic bonding versus veneers, and I decided that veneers were a better longer-term option for me.”

      “I’d been unhappy with my smile for quite a while. The top teeth on one side of my mouth were larger than the other side. In addition I had a patch of white on one tooth that I felt stood out from the others and was quite noticeable. I wasn’t scared at all and the treatment itself was painless, comfortable and actually quite calming throughout. When I saw my new smile I was overwhelmed – it was the perfect smile that I always wanted. Plus I no longer need to use an editor on my smile!

      “I’d originally had a chat with my usual dentist in Stockton Heath about my smile, as I’d noticed on my Facebook photos that my teeth had moved and were no longer as straight as they used to be. Unfortunately, he was unable to do Invisalign and so suggested that I looked at another place in Warrington. As I lived in Lymm I decided to see if Dental Solutions could help me first instead – I knew they had a good reputation and I’d often wondered about them when I walked past their surgery in the village.
