Whats involved in the treatment?

    Your Sevenoaks dentist will start with an initial consultation taking x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth. From here you will receive a tailored treatment plan explaining your treatment options and costs. 

    Every 6 - 8 weeks subsequent visits are required, allowing adjustments to be made, getting you one step closer to your dream smile. After this stage is completed you will then have the choice of having removable or bonded retainers to maintain your new smile.

    The time is takes for your braces to work their magic is dependent on the severity of your case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need braces on for longer.

      What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

      Braces can bring life changing benefits:

      • The can improve the appearance of your smile
      • They can correct the way your teeth bite together and function
      • They can reduce the risk of damage to prominent teeth
      • They can make it easier to clean your teeth

          Will I be able to eat and drink as normal?

          To avoid any damage to your teeth or braces, you'll need to steer clear of the following during your treatment:

          • Sugary snacks and drinks between meals
          • Anything particularly sticky, hard or chewy
          • Fizzy drinks and large quantities of fruit juice

          Will I be able to play contact sports? 

          Absolutely, but you'll need to wear a mouth guard. We can custom-make you a mouthguard to wear over your braces. To find out more speak to Sumithra Hewage today.

          Will I be able to play a musical instrument?

          Fixed braces can make it trickier to play wind or brass instruments. Most patients quickly adapt, but you should discuss this with your orthodontists. They might recommend a removable brace, which can be taken out for performances.
