At the Perfect Smile Studios, we only suggest suitable treatment options that are specific to you after a detailed orthodontic assessment at one of our clinics.
In your assessment, we not only analyze the most suitable option to straighten your teeth but also look at other aspects of your mouth such as your bite, jaw joints, gum foundation and structural integrity of your teeth. Your assessment can take anywhere from 2-3 hours long.
We have designed this assessment in such a way because we believe that every aspect of your mouth is an individual piece of a bigger picture.
It’s designed to ensure that your oral health and hygiene is in good condition. Bad teeth can cause problems and can even affect the success of your treatment.
That’s why it’s extremely important that we examine your mouth for symptoms of gum disease, infection and tooth decay.
We need to make sure that there is harmony in every aspect to create a balanced and smooth functioning mouth.
This is the key to your dental success. Find out more on other orthodontic consultations.
Once we have assessed your mouth we can then highlight which teeth straightening treatments are specifically applicable to you.
There are multiple teeth straightening options available in today’s innovative era. Our consultants are on hand to help you to choose the right one.
Types of treatment include:
Our dentists have undergone intensive training to ensure the best possible treatment results.
- Teeth width, depth and height / Tooth shape / Extent of crowding
- Spaces – too much or too little / Arch width – too wide, narrow or normal
- Canine distance / Overbite and overjet measurements
- Missing teeth / Open bite / Underbite
- Gum condition / Teeth state / Disorders
- Jaw joints / Facial muscles of mastication
- Current speech / The relationship of the lower jaw to the upper jaw
- Habits such as grinding (bruxism) or clenching your teeth
In your Invisalign examination as well as assessing your teeth we will need to take some orthodontic records to help facilitate the diagnosis.
Records we will need:
- Digital intra-oral and extra-oral photographs / Digital radiographs (x-rays)
- A scan of your teeth or impressions for your models
We also use various diagnostic aids to help with our diagnoses such as Digital Analysis and 3D computer simulations.
Choosing the correct treatment
Once we have all the information we need, we will then be in a position to provide the most suitable choices for corrective treatment for you.
Your treatment choices will be based upon your unique set of circumstances and foundation of your jaws, teeth and gums.
We will then customize your unique treatment plan to suit your specific treatment needs and aesthetic requirements.
It is your choice as to what Perfect Smile clinic you would like to use, many of our South London patients like to visit us at our Harley Street branch in South Kensington.
