Oral hygiene is one of the most important subjects that can effect dating. Whether you are not confident with the whiteness of your teeth, bad breath, or any other common issue – it can have a detrimental effect on your dating life.
So, the Lovestruck team has teamed up with Bow lane dental for the New Year, and we will be bringing some tips, advice, and special offers to help get you confident for all of those special dates to come.
It is never too late to look and feel your best! In the dating arena, problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth or teeth that stick out can decrease your self-confidence. Although most adults seek orthodontics for cosmetic reasons, many also seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wearing of teeth and gum or hygiene problems.
Our approach is to concentrate on straightening teeth and on achieving harmony for your teeth, jaws and face. By focusing on the bigger picture, we achieve straight teeth, a healthy function of the jaw joints, a more pleasing appearance and long lasting results.
Bow Lane dental offers three invisible ways to straighten your teeth:
This is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without the use of wires. Invisalign use a series of transparent aligners made of a thin clear plastic which fit onto your teeth, like a very thin mouth guard. They are nearly invisible and can be easily removed on a date. Invisalign allows you to still enjoy your favourite food and smile without holding back.
This is a removable plastic appliance that can straighten your teeth in months not years. It uses a spring and a bar that squeeze teeth into more functional and aesthetic positions. It will only straighten your front teeth but is the fastest system out there.
The name ‘lingual’ refers to the attachment of a brace on the inner surface of the tooth, inside the mouth, where they cannot be seen. This type of brace is completely undetectable! This means that your teeth may be straightened without the worry that your appearance may be affected during treatment.
How long will treatment take?
The fastest option is the Inman aligner which could be finished in 6 weeks (subject to you wearing it). Depending on the complexity of the problem the other systems can take between 6 to 24 months.
Does it hurt?
Braces may be uncomfortable for a few days. During this time you may take painkillers to reduce the discomfort and place wax over the bracket to make it smoother for the tongue.
Will it affect my speech?
Most people notice a change in their speech, particularly over the first few weeks. This generally improves after an initial period of adaptation.
Will I be able to clean my teeth as normal?
You do need to spend more time cleaning your teeth. It is important to maintain a good standard of oral hygiene. You may need to visit the hygienist to have your teeth cleaned professionally every 3-4 months during treatment.
