Dental solutions

A broken or missing tooth can be a real pain, and many people will consider a traditional crown or bridge as a solution. Alternatively, having dental implants in Camden is a modern, highly effective treatment where an artificial tooth is attached to your jawbone. Implants provide an effective way of replacing damaged or missing teeth, helping you to once again feel confident in your smile.

Dental Implants in CamdenAre your dentures working for you?

If you’ve had dentures for a while, you may be unhappy with the potential for them to slide in your mouth, or feeling like you should be careful when you’re eating. This may be another reason to consider dental implants in Camden.

How do dental implants work?

The implant is a titanium bar that’s inserted securely into the jawbone. 3-6 months later, a join is added called an abutment. The artificial tooth can then be attached. Alternatively, there’s also the option to have same-day teeth, which means getting your implants and artificial teeth fitted all in the same day. Getting replacement teeth has never been so simple.

Getting implants with us

Ace Dental is a modern clinic in Camden with a team ready to tend to all of your dental implant needs. When you’re ready to get dental implants in Camden, you can come in to see the team who will tell you all you need to know. Getting dental implants is a big decision and we want you to have all the information you need before starting.

What do they feel like?

Once your mouth has healed, you won’t feel the implants in your mouth. You can speak, eat and move your mouth as you normally would. Dental implants are long-lasting and, if looked after carefully, can last for life. You can look after your teeth as you normally would by brushing twice a day, using dental floss to reach in-between, and having regular deep cleans to remove plaque that brushing alone doesn’t always remove. Keep sugar and snacks to a minimum and avoid over-consumption of food and drinks that can stain the teeth, such as coffee, wine and fruit juices.

Want to straighten your teeth?

As an adult, there are ways you think your smile could be better. Having straighter teeth may be a part of this, or it may be that you have gaps between your teeth you’d like to close. The good news is, there are many options to have braces in Camden that can suit your own dental needs as well as your lifestyle.

Braces in CamdenAbout our clinic

Ace Dental in Camden is a modern and welcoming practice offering competent brace solutions to help with teeth straightening or overbite.

We provide a range of easy-to-use, clear and aesthetically-pleasing braces. Each of our options are discreet, easy to clean and comfortable to wear. In fact, there are probably more types of braces available than you think.

Our range of braces in Camden include:

  • removable aligners which are very discreet, can be taken out when you need to eat or clean your teeth, and are easy to put back in
  • lingual braces which are fixed to the inside of your teeth, which means they’re more discreet than traditional braces
  • Invisalign is a popular aligner because it’s almost completely invisible, very comfortable to wear and is suitable for low alignment issues, achieving results within 9-18 months
  • an Inman aligner works by applying some pressure to the front and back of the teeth, which is effective when you only have a few teeth that need adjusting
  • Six Month Smiles are braces made of a nickel-titanium wire, which is tooth-coloured to be discreet and can achieve a difference within 6 months.

Taking care of your braces

You can take some braces out each day before eating and to clean them with a toothbrush.

Cost

You can get braces in Camden at a competitive price and can pay in monthly instalments.

Do braces hurt?

Our modern braces in Camden are lightweight and are much more comfortable to wear than they used to be. It may take your teeth and your mouth a while to get used to them, but once you do, you can go about your daily life as you usually would. If you want braces but have concerns about how it will feel, our dental team can talk through these with you.

It’s a commitment, but it’s worth it

If you have been living with wonky teeth for your entire life, it can be both daunting and a big relief when you finally decide to get something done about them.

A relief, because it means that at last, you will be able to stop worrying about what other people see, and what they feel about what they see, when you smile at them.

Braces in CamdenDaunting, because you are the start of a process that could go on for a year or more.

But, then again, it’s a process about which, as yet, you know very little, so no wonder you feel a bit scared. You are probably wondering what it will feel like to have braces on your teeth. Will your teeth ache? Will you get sore patches inside your cheeks? Will everyone think you look a complete idiot and take the mickey? Will you have to spend ages in the toilets at work trying to get trapped food out from behind the brackets and wires?

These are all valid questions and ones we can answer when you come to Ace Dental in Camden for your first consultation. You can tell us all about your fears and worries about going through the braces process, and we will also take a good look at your wonky teeth and be able to come up with some options regarding straightening devices.

If you were brought up in the UK, it’s likely that your teeth won’t be more than moderately out of alignment. This is because your childhood dentist would have picked up on any severe misalignment issues, particularly with regard to the way your jaws come together, and put you forward for treatment on the NHS.

This means that you will be able to take advantages of some great devices that were designed specifically with image-conscious adults in mind. They are far more discreet than the traditional metal bracket and wires braces you are probably imagining you are going to have to have.

When you come in for your consultation, we will be able to talk you through them and help you decide which one to go for.

Improve your smile with dental implants in Camden without breaking the bank

If you have been considering dental implants for a long time, but you are still not ready to take the plunge because of the cost, it’s time to do some proper research. It’s true that dental implants usually have a higher upfront price than some alternatives, but they also last much longer.

At Ace Dental, we firmly believe that dental implants should be an affordable option for everyone. And truth is that not all dentists charge the same. More importantly, different implant procedures have a different cost. Be sure to do your research and find the best dentist for dental implants in Camden. From our part we can assure you that we will never compromise quality.

Dental Implants in CamdenSome implant treatments are more affordable than others

If you think that all dental implants in Camden cost the same, you are wrong. Most dental implants are made of the same titanium alloy, but they don’t cost the same since they serve different functions. Traditional dental implants tend to be more expensive compared to other implants solutions, but this applies only if you need more than one. Implant solutions that incorporate bridges and dentures are less expensive, because they do not require as many dental implants.

Hidden costs of bridges and dentures

If paying a big sum of money upfront for dental implants is a major inconvenience, you should look into financial plans or talk to your dentist about dental discount plans. In any case, dental implants are a better alternative than conventional bridges and dentures if you wish to have healthy and functional teeth for years to come.

On the one hand, dentures require buying a special case to store them as well as special cleaners and adhesive so that they can stay in place when you eat or drink. You’d be surprised to find out how much these costs can add up over the years. More importantly, dentures are not supported by the jawbone, therefore any alterations to your jaw can render them useless.

Dental bridges, on the other hand, have a longer lifespan than dentures but they are damaging to your surrounding teeth.

Why are adult braces in Camden such a trend?

From magazines to catwalks, braces are everywhere. But why are braces — the reason for so much adolescent gracelessness — suddenly trendy? Part of this trend can be explained by the emergence of adult braces, which are basically teeth-straightening devices that do the same job as conventional braces in a more discreet manner.

Braces in CamdenAt Ace Dental, we firmly believe that having braces in Camden for correcting dental problems is the first step to a great smile. More specifically, when it comes to adult braces you can easily make them part of your look without hesitating to smile. This will give you a novel sense of confidence and help restore your oral health.

Orthodontic care is not just for children

It is a very common misconception that braces are just for children and adolescents. However, recent statistics have shown that an increasing number of adults are seeking treatment with braces. After all, braces in Camden are not only about correcting a crooked smile. They can also prevent serious oral health problems later in life and ameliorate your oral hygiene routine because – let’s face it – brushing straighter teeth is always better than cleaning crooked and misaligned teeth.

What are my options?

When prospective orthodontic patients think of adult braces in Camden, they think of Invisalign, but that’s not the only option we offer at Ace Dental. Admittedly, it all started with Invisalign but soon new options became available. At our practice, you can select from a wide variety of fixed or removed teeth-straightening appliances, including Quick Straight Teeth, Invisalign, The Inman Aligner, QST fixed braces, Six Month Smiles and Secret Smile. With so much choice, it is almost impossible not to find something that suits your dental problems and lifestyle needs.

Explore your options

If you have been contemplating braces in Camden for a long time, but you are not sure what type of adult braces would suit your needs, we can help. Please book a consultation appointment and our dentists will examine your teeth carefully. Adult braces are very popular and convenient but unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for them. To find out if you can have them, give us a call today.

Get the teeth most like your own

It took a while for dentists to figure how to make replacement teeth that mimic real teeth; for centuries there was no way to fix them into the jawbone. But about 30 years ago, that all changed when dental implants became available.

Having great replacement teeth is not just about having ones that look like real teeth, they have to work as well as real teeth do too. And that’s the thing. The reason your natural teeth can chew down hard on foods is that they are anchored firmly into your jawbone. They are not part of your jawbone, but they are held in place in their sockets by masses of fibrous ligaments.

Dental Implants in CamdenThe crowns on modern dentures and fixed bridgework are very lifelike. They are often handmade to match the size, shape and colour of the rest of your teeth. The acrylics or dental porcelains used have the same light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth. So the main advantages of dental implants are not so much that they look better than these other kinds of prosthetics; it’s that they do a better job.

Firm anchoring

Dental implants are put into artificial sockets that we make in your jawbone. We can’t recreate the fibres that hold natural teeth in place, but, because the implants are made of titanium, they get held in place by the jawbone itself. The body sees this metal as another body part, and not an intruder, and grows new bone tissue all over it. The jawbone and the implant fuse together.

Once this process, called osseointegration, is complete, the implants can withstand the same powerful chewing forces as natural teeth.

You get to eat whatever you want, and never have to worry that your false teeth will wobble around.

Healthy jawbone

Bones need impacts to retain their size and density and this is supplied through the implants, which transmit impact vibrations from the teeth meeting together.

Low maintenance

Dental implants last for at least 15 years, and all you have to do to take care of them is avoid gum disease by following your usual diligent cleaning routine, plus visit the hygienist regularly.

Enlighten teeth whitening in Camden

In our modern world, where TV, magazines and social media are the epicentre of attention, we are constantly bombarded with people sporting the most impressive set of white teeth. It’s common knowledge that most celebrities have had work done on their teeth to make them whiter, yet this doesn’t stop us from feeling inadequate about the state of our own teeth.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenTeeth whitening is a popular, painless and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure carried at many dental practices in the UK. At Ace Dental we offer different types of teeth whitening in Camden and one of our popular choices is Enlighten. This technology has been around for at least 10 years with highly reliable results around the world.

How teeth become discoloured

As we grow older, our teeth tend to become yellow and discoloured, affecting our smiles and making us feel older than we actually are. This can have knock-on effects on your self-esteem.

Why does this happen? Because teeth are subject to wear and as the enamel wears away, the inner layer of the tooth is exposed, which is yellower in colour. Certain medications can also make teeth appear yellow and cause stains.

Then of course are lifestyle habits, smoking, eating highly pigmented foods and drinking tea, coffee and red wine, all of which result in the build-up of stains.

How can Enlighten teeth whitening help?

There are now many teeth whitening products available, but we always recommend whitening your teeth with the help of a dentist, as this is the only safe method and has been proven to produce the most reliable results.

At Ace Dental, we use Enlighten technology among other whitening treatments. This treatment involves wearing custom-made whitening trays containing a whitening gel to gradually improve the shade of your teeth. You wear the trays overnight or for a few hours during the day for 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the shade of whiteness you wish to achieve. At the end of the treatment, you can proudly display your new smile with the natural gleam of your teeth restored.

Refresh your skin with facial aesthetics in Camden

Your facial skin is delicate and is exposed to a barrage of insults every day that hasten the ageing process. At Ace Dental, we understand that pollution, sun exposure, smoking, and poor nutrition can cause discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles in the long run and we are here to help you do something about it.

Of course it isn’t just the environment that you skin has to contend with, it’s the natural ageing process too. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and lustre, becoming dull and dry. There is a solution: facial aesthetics in Camden.

Facial Aesthetic in CamdenFacial aesthetics can rejuvenate your face and so increase your confidence. Our experienced cosmetic dentists will examine your facial anatomy, guide you through the different treatments and help you decide which one is best for your needs. Facial aesthetics in Camden can be done on its own or alongside cosmetic dental treatments to give your face and your smile a complete makeover.

Botox

Botox is a popular treatment for patients wishing to reduce the signs of ageing. Botox injections consist of a harmless toxin with the ability to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. The injections are not painful so no anaesthetic is required and they take no more than 15 minutes to administer. The effects can last for 3-6 months.

The advantage of having Botox in our practice is that our dentists have a deep understanding of facial anatomy and can administer Botox injections in a delicate and precise manner for natural-looking results.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers offer a non-invasive way to restore facial contours. Dermal fillers, as their name suggests, fill out crevices and creases caused by fine lines and wrinkles on your face. They comprise high quality synthetic collagen or hyaluronic acid, both of which are found naturally in the skin.  They can be used to plump out hollows and lips and restore a fresher, younger look.

When only the best will do

There are some things in life that aren’t worth skimping on, the most obvious of which is medical treatment, but the same is true of your dental care. You only get one set of adult teeth to last you a lifetime. If you’ve already lost some then you’re probably even more motivated to hang onto what you’ve got left. This is something you need to consider when choosing how to restore your teeth. Your best bet is dental implants in Camden.

Dental Implants in CamdenAt Ace Dental, we’d be happy to tell you all about the advantages of dental implants in Camden when you come in to see us for your implant consultation. But to whet your appetite, here are a couple of the best benefits.

Holding on to what’s left

Dental implants stand out from dentures or bridges as they are the only tooth restoration that replaces the roots as well as the crowns of missing teeth. This is vital to protecting the integrity of your jawbone. The roots of your teeth enable vibrations from your teeth clashing together all day to reach your jawbone. These vibrations tell your jawbone to stay strong and healthy. Missing roots cause your jawbone to dissolve itself. This puts neighbouring teeth at greater risk of tilting or falling out, triggering a vicious cycle of tooth loss. Dental implants in Camden therefore help you hold onto your remaining natural teeth.

Here to stay

Dentures need relining or replacing every 3-8 years. This is because without those all-important tooth roots, your jawbone shrinks and your gums recede. It’s your gums that dentures rely on for suction to stay in place, so, as these change shape, your dentures will need adapting.

Bridges meanwhile are attached to the 2 teeth either side of the gap, which have to be ground down to form buttresses. This arrangement is secure, but bridges do, however, break and will also need replacing over the years.

Dental implants in Camden are fixed into the jawbone, where new bone tissue grows around them to secure them in place. This means they can last for decades, even a lifetime, as long as you keep up with a good oral hygiene routine, regular dental check-ups and hygienist cleanings.

Get smiling again with braces in Camden

When was the last time you looked in the mirror, smiled and were completely happy with your teeth? Maybe you can’t even remember because for as long as you’ve known, you’ve had wonky teeth. As a kid, the only way you’d have gotten braces on the NHS was if you had some major dental misalignments; anything less and you had to grin and bear it, which brings us up to the present day. If you’re tired of putting up with crowded, crooked or spaced out teeth, then it’s time to get braces in Camden from Ace Dental.

Braces in CamdenWe provide a range of adult braces in Camden that will leave you smiling, not only after your treatment is complete but during your treatment too. That’s because they are more discreet and comfortable than ever before. Here are just 3 options that you might like to talk to one of braces dentists about:

Inman Aligner

This is one of the speediest braces treatments available. It focuses on the front 6-8 teeth, the ones that are most obvious when you smile. Using 2 spring-loaded bows, the teeth are pushed into alignment. You can have straighter teeth in 6-18 weeks.

Invisalign

These clear, plastic aligners are made using 3D printing technology to fit snugly over your teeth. Ideal for mild to moderate misalignments of your front or back teeth, Invisalign is almost impossible to spot once on. You wear a series of aligners, each for around 7-10 days, over the course of your treatment, which takes on average 12 months. The aligners are removable so you take them out to eat, drink, brush or floss, ensuring minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Six Month Smiles

If switching out aligners sounds like too much of a faff for you, then you might want these fixed braces instead. Tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets ensure Six Month Smiles braces blend into the background of your teeth, while gentler forces make for a more comfortable treatment journey. The latter is possible because this treatment focuses on your front teeth, which only have a single root each that requires shifting along.
