Had my tooth taken out today at London Dental Specialists. Not a fan of needles but the experience was seamlessly effortless. I am glad I stock with you Ope as I still have a pleasant smile and painless experience of two teeth being removed. Thank you for the detailed information been very helpful to my heart at rest.

London Dental Specialist surgery it is immaculate and you are greeted with a smile from Ms. Agnes at the front desk as you enter.Dr. Ope Sodeinde has such a gentle approach and put me immediately at ease. He took the time to explain every steps of the treatment.I was then well looked after by Ms. Rose O'Keeffe who is a fantastic hygienist .I cannot recommend this practice highly enough, and know that you will be well looked after with the utmost professionalism.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sondeine's since arriving in London 3 years ago. He been very caring and professional in addressing any periodontal issues I had (there were several) and I would highly recommend him.
12:42 29 Jan 21
Despite the depradations of age, London Dental Specialists find a solution to multiple problems with, as usual, careful explanation and choice where possible. and with staff who are all friendly, patient and welcoming
16:23 21 Oct 20
I remain a fan so don’t mind driving all the way up from Surrey each time to see you/your team.I take comfort in all your degrees / expertise. I recall a shameful dentist trying to get me to have a gum graft at c£7k. A second opinion with yours truly showed I had plenty of gum & deep roots despite recession c/o brushing too hard – super to have such an honest practioner protect those with such a concern.
13:03 18 Jan 21
I count myself fortunate to have been referred to Dr Ope and his team and am very pleased with the results of my treatment. The service was impressive throughout and every step was explained to me clearly and articulately. In hours of treatment I always felt in safe hands. Dr Ope and his team were charming and efficient with the right level of patience and the necessary sense of humour. I will be delighted to use them for the maintenance of my Dental treatment and heartily recommend the practice.
17:25 19 Mar 21
My treatment with Ope and his team was a very professional experience.I had extensive work which started in June 2019 ,Ope started on my upper jaw I had all my wobbly teeth removed I had to have a bone graft and gum graft along with implants and new teeth.I felt completely at ease during the whole procedure .The pain was manageable the new teeth amazing.Round two lower jaw started one month later basically the same procedure all over again .Ope and his team again made me feel completely at ease.I came to Ope with rotten, teeth ,gums and bad jaw bone I now have a complete restored mouth with a full set of the most amazing teeth.I did not think it could be possible .
11:17 08 Jun 22
I am always satisfied with the treatment I get from Ope. My recent wisdom tooth extraction was painless and straightforward. This is a dentist who cares

A friendly and professionally run practice. I visited over several months to have 2 implants at the back of my lower gum. The treatment involved bone and gum grafts but the end result was worth the time and money spent. For the first time in many years I am able to eat on both sides of my mouth . I'd previously had implants on the other side at a different practice, but the ones done at London Dental Specialists are a better fit and much more secure.
12:51 06 Apr 22
I highly recommend London Dental Specialists. Doctor Ope, Miss Rose O’Keeffe, and Agnes offer a first-class service. I was diagnosed with gum disease and they cured my constant pain. My teeth are much more healthy and as a consequence, my general health too.
10:31 08 Apr 22
I have been having a wonderful experience with Dr Ope and his team! My implant is over 15 years old, and I was worried when I started feeling it moving and saw that the gums around it were inflamed.From the credentials I saw that Dr Ope is a real specialist and was not disappointed! He explains everything carefully and I feel in good hands with him. Also, when my crown fell out, he was able to put it back in place smoothly.They also have a hygienist, Rose, who is not only competent and friendly but also provided great guidance on how to keep the implant clean. Also, the practice manager, Agnes, provides an exceptional level of service which makes communicating with the practice and all things administrative much more pleasant.

12:37 29 Sep 20
I had root canal treatment and a dental implant at the end of 2019. I was feeling overwhelmed by the work that needed to be done and worried about what to do. The entire team were caring and extremely understanding of my anxiety. I really trust that my health and wellbeing are always at the centre of any treatment decisions. The procedures were carried out in a way that minimised my discomfort and the aftercare has been excellent. My subsequent hygiene appointments have been thorough - but also carried out in a way that made me much less nervous. Every member of staff is kind, patient and highly knowledgable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team and will continue to return for aftercare and any future procedures.
12:26 11 Jun 21
Ope has been professional to deal with all of my dental issues. Many thx.
20:40 27 Jul 20
My son had root canal treatment. Staff were very friendly and professional. Treatment was very quick and the results have been great! Good communication before appointment, would highly recommend.
14:19 10 May 22
I was very fortunate to be referred to this dental team in 2020. I have continued having regular hygienist appointments and the team have been brilliant. They advise, work sensitively with me and I am confident that my dental health is well looked after.
13:11 29 Mar 22
I have been a client of London Dental specialist for about 5 years, I have never been disappointed on the treatment results , the Hygienists have helped me to get my gum disease under control, I have tried other hygienist twice due to been unable to attend for an appointment on a week day, and I have very much regretted going somewhere else, I not only paid a higher price but have to have the job properly done later by London dental specialist. At LDE they have highly qualified doctors and do care about their customers, and the staff is always friendly and polite. keep the great customer service!
20:41 15 Dec 19
By far, Dr. Ope gave me the best treatment I could have ever received for my recessive front gum and guided me throughout the whole process. I was very nervous of undergoing surgery, but Dr. Ope not only was able to give me all the reassurance I needed, the whole experience itself was even pleasant.Upmost professionalism along with a very human approach.The rest of the staff was extremely friendly and always made me feel welcomed and safe.Thank you very much.
23:32 22 Jan 21
Had an examination last year due to dental issues I was having at the time. Dr Ope was incredibly welcome and professional. He made me feel at ease, diagnosed my issue and provided me with a lot of helpful information. Would definitely recommend.
09:20 03 Aug 20
Had various procedures and implants over several years. Ope took a lot of time explaining the situation, reasons for the recommended treatment and the next steps. So service good.Very pleased with the safety measures taken during Covid-19.
16:45 17 Sep 21
LDS has treated me for the past 25years. With severely reduced upper gums (due to over zealous flossing) LDS fitted two upper molar dental implants. My upper incisors are glued together to provide a firm bite. For years I have enjoyed eating as though I had a full set of teeth and complete gums. Great.
19:10 16 Apr 22
I am incredibly grateful for Dr Ope and his amazing team. I have complex dental issues which have resulted in the loss of 3 teeth. So far, I've had 4 rounds of deep cleaning and a tooth extraction (which was complelety painless, Ope is a magician). Next up, is a bone graft and dental implants. I also need gum grafts. Throughout my treatment, Ope has discussed all the options and we have worked together to come up with a plan that is right for me. He has kept every single promise he has made. Ope and his team have treated me with extraordinary kindness and compassion. I have no hesitation in recommending London Dental Specialists. If you have dental issues you are worried about, please go and see Ope. For the first time in years, I'm not worried about my teeth because I know that whatever happens, Ope will have a plan.

First-class. I had a dental implant fitted four years ago (Ope Sodeinde having been recommended by my dentist) and have been attending LDS regularly ever since for check-ups and hygiene sessions. The quality of the care has been terrific: highly professional and expert, with a warmth and sensitivity that inspires trust and confidence. I cannot recommend them more highly.
08:34 10 May 21
I have just completed the implant treatment for the back tooth with Dr Ope last week, the overall result was good and the implant looks natural. The environment in the practice was friendly and easy to share any treatment concerns with them.
19:39 14 Jun 22
One of the best experiences I've had with a dentist! Had a root canal re-treatment with Dr. Neha, you can see how skilled she is when working. No issues or complications after the treatment either. Bonus points for having a high ceiling and a roof window in the treatment room.
14:11 12 Jul 21
I saw Dr Ope for an initial exam and Dr Neha for a root canal which needed to be re-done. I found both to be very good at taking the time to answer questions and explain my options. The root canal was a complex one which another dentist had struggled with and left incomplete, but Dr Neha seems to have done a good job of sorting it out. The experience was comfortable and very professional.
17:09 11 Nov 20
I have had outstanding dental care and surgical treatment from Dr Ope Sodeinde at the London Dental Specialists. The evaluation of the problem was very clear and thorough, as were the choices presented to me prior to surgery. The procedure was faultless, and my recovery swift.
13:10 11 Apr 21
After having previous dental work that needed correcting, with extensive work needed, I visited a few dental practices for different opinions. I decided to use London Dental Specialists. From the start, the whole team were extremely understanding, non-judgmental, patient and extremely knowledgable. All options were explained clearly and then I was given the opportunity to go away and think about it and had a courtesy follow up appointment to ask any questions or voice any concerns. I can honestly say, from the start I was made to feel like a patient and not an appointment.Treatment commenced in January, and after numerous appointments I will be coming to the end of treatment in a couple of months. I really don’t like the dentist but they have made me feel relaxed, reassured, and I now know that the team are absolute perfectionists and are passionate about what they do. Always going the extra mile. I’m confident any advice they give me really is in my best interest.I travel 1 and 1/2 hours for my appointment, with parking outside, and will continue to do so as I will never use another dentist. Very highly recommend.
09:08 23 Apr 22
I was recently referred to Dr Ope at London Dental Specialists, it was a wonderful experience and the care from everyone at the clinic was great. My treatment went well, and the thoroughness of the care was fantastic. Thank you to the whole team, I would definitely recommend the London Dental Specialists.
11:16 18 Mar 21
It was amaizing service i dont feel anything during the surgery , and they follow up with you after the surgery as well , the doctor are really professional 10/10.

I was referred to Ope in October 2020 while in a very difficult situation regarding dental implants. I had suffered serve nerve pain and was undergoing investigations to find out the root problem. His patient, attention to care and overall manner is exceptional; I have never encountered such a brilliant dentist that goes above and beyond his job. He swiftly made sure I had a CBCT scan completed and a radiographer report, and then referred me to a pain specialist very promptly. This all took place over the space of a week; I was completely amazed at how quickly Ope managed to deal with my problem. I was beyond satisfied with the treatment I received and the follow-up care. I will be undertaking further treatment with Ope in the future. If you are looking for a dentist who makes you comfortable, is excellent at his job and has a kind manner, I highly recommend The London Dental Specialists.
10:51 27 Nov 21
I was referred to the London Dental Specialists by my Dentist(NHS) for a root canal procedure Oct 2021. Dr Ope from the beginning was very friendly, professional, and performed a thorough investigation. The findings were discussed and it turned out I also needed to have a crown lengthening procedure first. The surgery was performed by Dr Ope and went very well - no pain! Follow up hygienist appointment by Miss O'Keefe and root canal by Dr Patel were the same excellent high standards. The lovely Agnes would call after each procedure to see how I was and if I had any questions, which we were always answered by Dr Ope! Excellent service over all and highly recommended dental practice.
20:28 12 Sep 20
I came to the London Dental Specialists and was looked after by Dr Sodeinde. I had a pain in the jaw that the ear specialist suggested it was teeth related. Dr Sodeinde gave me some exercises to do after examining the jaw line and teeth. After three weeks the pain has gone. His service was first class and very kind. I highly recommend him. Liz Gee
21:05 05 Mar 21
I was referred the LDS for a "re-root canal" treatment as a previous root canal had become infected. I am normally anxious about dental work but Dr Patel made me feel very comfortable; she kept me updated throughout and reassured me. The procedure took quite some time but I felt that Dr Patel was thorough and I left feeling confident that she had solved the issue. All other staff were very friendly and kind.
15:48 05 May 21
May 2021 - London Dental Specialists have looked after my teeth for the last six years and I have always been really pleased with the professional care received from the practice's friendly team.Recently, I fractured one of my molar teeth which had an existing deep filling. This required root canal treatment (completed by Dr Neha Patel) and then the fitting of a crown, after complex work to reshape the tooth (completed by Dr Ope Sodeinde). The treatment process was excellent from start to finish, and Ope and Neha took great care to ensure I felt at ease throughout this. I am very happy with the end result and again have no hesitation in recommending London Dental Specialists.September 2020 - This was my first hygienist appointment at London Dental Specialists in the new world of enhanced PPE and Covid safety measures (I have been a patient of the practice for several years).Stephanie was excellent. As well as carefully cleaning and polishing my teeth, she gave me a number of very useful practical tips on my dental hygiene and brushing technique.I received a warm welcome from Ope and his team as always and felt very safe throughout my appointment.
04:52 22 Oct 21
I've had a few previous bad experiences at dentists, but today was a breath of fresh air. Courteous, considerate, professional, and best of all...totally painless
16:16 24 Apr 22
I can't speak highly enough of the service I've received from London Dental Specialists. Ope Sodeinde and his team are highly professional, skilled, friendly and patient. Ope has a wealth of Periodontal experience and knowledge which he used to good effect.My treatment consisted of the removal of 2 teeth, upper left at the back of my mouth (they had to go due to receding Gum). I then had multiple bone grafts, two implants and finally a Bridge. Due to the complex space & shape at the back of the mouth, Ope came up with a novel approach to positioning the implants (I suspect other specialists may have given up well before then!). I now have a perfectly formed and functioning Bridge which matches the colour and shape of my other teeth .I can now eat on that side of my mouth, speak with confidence and pain free. I can't tell you how much better I feel with a full set of teeth.I highly recommend the services of Ope and his team at the London Dental Specialists and I will continue to use Ope's services in the future.
19:19 08 May 21
I was referred to Dr Ope by my dentist for placing a dental implant following the extraction of a cracked tooth. I am an anxious patient with a low tolerance for pain and a busy work/personal life. It was important for me to have a consultation with Dr Ope and understand the procedure, recovery timeline, provided support, and all the stages until full dental recovery (having a fully functioning replacement of a tooth). I was impressed by Dr Ope's professionalism and personal approach. He provided all the relevant information promptly, described all the costs, made himself available for questions and additional appointments during recovery. I had a dental implant and gum graft, which is not the most pleasant experience. So, it helped a lot to have a caring, positive and experienced surgeon. Dr Ope's practice provides a warranty for dental implants if you attend the hygienist appointments and maintain gum health. I have found that helpful.

12:55 10 Mar 22
London Dental Specialists have been such a lifesaver to me. My previous dentists had given me such issues that LDS have rectified. The professionalism, the consultation and transparency has been so reassuring. I’ve been wanting to correct my teeth for a number of years. After consulting Dr Ope I went for ceramic braces and Dr Kia my orthodontist has been a dream. The way I look after my teeth has completely changed. I look forward to every appointment.
19:20 21 Nov 20
I had an excellent experience with the team at the London Dental Specialist. Appointments were made to fit around my own working time. In my first appointment, I discussed with Dr. Ope, based on the condition of my affected tooth, why I should have dental implant as opposed to the root canal treatment (I really wanted to keep my natural tooth) I wanted. He took the time to see my reasons and I did his as he gave me good detailed facts only a good dental professional could. I respect that! The procedure was not traumatic and strict COVID-19 guidelines were followed during the procedures. The end result was fantastic - it does not even feel like my natural tooth was replaced with a dental implant. Thank you for the journey to getting me able to chew normally again.
07:21 09 Sep 15
Why was I so worried? Dr Sodeinde put me totally at ease from start to finish. My initial consultation was very comprehensive, Ope provide me with clear information on all my options, we even had a 2nd meeting to go over anything I wanted to cover at no extra cost - he was extremely professional. Great customer care. Great job!”

We are super excited to be starting our Invisalign journey with London Dental Specialist, Dr Ope and Dr Kia! It’s been an absolutely amazing experience so far.

Dr Kia, thank you!We are so excited to see the results of our Invisalign!

We can’t wait to see the end results!Thank you so much!Love Lucy and Lydia x
18:55 11 Jun 20
Fantastic webinar Dr Ope. Thank you 😊
20:27 26 Nov 20
I was referred to Ope and his team by my trusted dentist and although I was very anxious at the idea of having to have implants, I felt much more reassured after my initial consultation with Ope. Ope was a consumate professional, answering all my questions and concerns, he provided a fully comprehensive and considered treatment plan with several options to consider. All of which were explained in great detail, both in writing and during our follow up conference call shortly afterwards.I am now halfway through my implant treatment, having undergone an extraction and a bone graft, and I cannot recommend the practice more. I know I am in very good hands and I look forward to a positive, stress-free result with absolute confidence.
15:13 24 Jan 21
I have had implants and various treatments at the practice and they have all been excellent. Ope and his team are always very professional and reassuring.
11:02 30 Mar 21
This was my first specialist root canal treatment with Dr Neha Patel and I felt very reassured in her ability. She was incredibly meticulous with her work - retesting measurements and making sure everything was absolutely spot on, despite complications along the way (long and curved roots). She worked late into the night and although I had to hold my mouth open for 3 hours I was very impressed by her (and the Team’s) professionalism and it’s a credit to her desire to achieve the best result for her patients. Big thank you from Jordan.
19:47 15 Jan 21
London Dental Specialists helped me with my gum problems and I now consider the issue resolved - previously I had tried all sorts of things on my own but I needed Ope and team's professional help and expertise. Also they are really nice people. Strongly recommend.
12:23 05 Jun 21
I had a long period of the problem with my teeth. I had suffered caused nerve pain daily. I went to several dental practices and they told me that there was nothing they can do to help my teeth getting better. I have done some reach for a dental specialist and I glad I came to cross meet Ope and His entire team Jane, Anna, Katerina, Sophie, and lots more... Ope and I had long discussed with my teeth based on the condition of my affected teeth, why I should have a dental implant the treatment. His patient and care for details were phenomenal, It took about a year time to finish the treatment, the overall he and his entire team manner is exceptional; I have never encountered such a brilliant dentist that goes above and beyond at his job if I had known Dr. Ope before and I may save my natural teeth. I was completely happy with the result which I can be eating normally again. I also undertake hygiene treatment with Ope right now. If you are looking for a dentist who is excellent at his job and does the best he can to make you smile again, you need to look for Dr. Ope The London Dental Specialists.
07:17 20 Aug 21
I was referred to London Dental specialists for a root canal treatment. I was really nervous before hand, but the staff and dentists made me feel at ease. They were so lovely! And the actual treatment was fine, the dentist would talk me through the procedure and let me know what was going on. I would highly recommend them! If I ever need another root canal treatment I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to them! Thanks so much everyone there!
16:18 22 Feb 22
I have been going to London dental specialists for a year now. It started with the removal of my wisdom teeth then moved to braces (which i was not a big fan of initially) but the experience, the overall service and dental care has been brilliant and I can’t recommend this practise enough. 5 stars all round from me.
10:12 27 Apr 22
I have been a patient of Dr Ope’s for many years.As a working actor I was concerned that my new denture and implants would give me complete confidence and maintain clarity of enunciation and comfort as well as enjoyment eating and chewing food.Dr Ope has been wholly sympathetic with any worries Ihad and has lead me by the hand on all the stages of work on my teeth.His skill and understanding of my anxieties were allayed at every stage and I am completely satisfied with the looks and feel of my new mouth.I should mention that his personality and good humour are a joy to witness! I even look forward to my next appointmentInitially I was apprehensive about the cost of the work but Ope found an instalment plan with which I could cope.Vive Ope.I hope this arrives and you’re happy with it?Sandra x
15:17 23 Jul 20
I had a bad infection on my font teeth. Other dentists suggested me to do the dental extraction and implant. Dr Neha and Ope provide an alternative solution and saved my teeth. Rather than the extraction, they carefully operated a root canal. There is no pain except anesthesian injection at the very beginning of the operation and no pain afterwards.
06:10 30 Nov 21
I found this Dental Practice by searching for ‘Specialist Implant Dentistry’ on Google. I was really impressed with Dr Ope’s credentials and really wanted to see a Dentist that was registered in the specialist area of Periodontics on the GDC council. I had my first consultation yesterday and will shortly be having a CBT scan to see exactly which tooth is causing my infection. I am pleased with the treatment I have had so far. Dr Ope is really polite, patient, professional and cordial. I am so pleased that I found this surgery as my infection has been ongoing since Jan this year. A few months after a failed re-root canal treatment at a different Dental Surgery I started looking for a Dentist that I can trust and from speaking to Dr Ope I felt that he was trustworthy as he really cared. Dr Ope provides the same care, attention and treatment that he would give to his own mother or daughter and any Dentist that will do that is a phenomenal Dentist in my eyes and quite hard to find. 😊 The Receptionist, Practice Manger and Trainee Dental Nurse are all really helpful, polite, professional and patient too. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Update: I had a CBT scan on Tue 26th Oct which confirmed I had an abscess on my bone. On Thu 28th Oct I had an appointment with Dr Ope where he extracted UL6 and it was a phenomenal success. The tooth extraction was so painless I didn't even realise Dr Ope had extracted the tooth. I thought he was still removing my crown when he kindly informed me we were all done. I was completely shocked. He kindly gave me an Ibuprofen and said I can take another one at 20:00 that day and then another one the following day but when it came to 20:00 I didn't need to take another tablet, amazing. I could tell that I had a tooth taken out but it wasn't painful. The next day I did not need to take a painkiller either. I could feel something but I wasn't in any pain. I even went to work and just continued as normal with my day. I was ecstatic. The tooth extraction was so successful that I didn't even need to bite on a gauze pad for the next couple of hours as the bleeding had already stopped, amazing!I am extremely happy at the fact that I didn't have to have a surgical extraction, especially with the fact that the tooth has undergone a root canal treatment twice. I heard that teeth that have undergone a root canal treatment are more likely to shatter when being extracted. I have a friend who twice, had a tooth extracted and it shattered and they had to cut through gum and bone to remove the rest of the tooth, she said her face was swollen like a balloon and it felt like a truck hit her first, one of the reasons why I wanted to avoid going via NHS for my tooth extraction (although there are some great NHS Dentists out there 😊). I never got dry socket or any infection either, amazing! 😊My friends traumatic experiences also encouraged me more to find a Periodontal specialist as they have undergone further thorough study specifically to do with the gums, and especially as I had a swollen gum already from my gum disease, I really wanted to find an expert, and Dr Ope is definitely an expert. I am super thrilled with the results and could not recommend Dr Ope enough. He is very gentle and patient and an expert in his field. He is very helpful, answered all of my questions and again the whole extraction was pain free. If I was having a dental implant I would definitely be running to sit in Dr Ope's chair as I know the experience would be pain free. 😀 I cannot recommend Dr Ope enough. If you are looking for an expert who genuinely cares about their patients and are competitively priced then I would suggest Dr Ope and his extremely helpful team. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

It’s been a few weeks since work on an implant and a filling. All done with the usual skill and kindness. But also how well done. The filling doesn’t just fit my bite but really does seem to have improved it!
00:18 03 Mar 22
I was so impressed with the root canal treatment and care I received! Within a day of contacting them and sharing my X-rays from my dentist, I received a comprehensive treatment plan by Dr Sodeinde. More importantly, I was only charged for necessary treatment (as opposed to unnecessary consultations), which shows the ethical approach of this practice to patient welfare.The actual treatment by Dr Patel was professional; she seemed like she could do this complicated procedure with her eyes closed, remaining cheerful and upbeat as she walked me through the treatment.The aftercare was much better than anything I’ve received elsewhere, with the practice nurse giving me a call the day after to checkup on any after effect from the anaesthetic or treatment.Would recommend if your dentist is facing a challenging root canal and you’d like to save your tooth!
09:59 23 Apr 22
Visiting the London Dental Specialists was a truly lucky decision on my path. Astonishingly great customer service right from the door with a welcoming receptionist and through to Dr Ope Sodeinde and his supporting staff. I went in as an emergency of some sorts; my implant had failed and I needed it fixed asap!All my concerns were handled professionally and with careful consideration for my needs and feelings.I am quite a nervous "Dentist Visitor" but Dr Ope made me really comfortable and made sure I was not in any pain.The final result was beyond a 100. I absolutely love my new implant/tooth. it is the perfect colour match and looks very natural.I highly recommend this Dental practise! Squeaky clean facilities, great professional and empathetic staff, a very skilled dentist and amazing tea too!Thank you!!!
05:40 10 May 22
I had extraction and implant surgery with Ope who runs London Dental Specialists over recent months.Although the procedure is not painfree the team has been exemplary in their care of me in all aspects, meaning my mouth/teeth and my person. I can only praise and recommend them.
21:32 15 Jan 21
London Dental Specialist is a very good dentistry with world class professionals. They have wonderful orthodontics, cosmetic and other professional services with a very conducive commercials. I also would like to mention bout their excellent dental hygienist services too. I would like to recommend them for any dental issues.
Braces are a common orthodontic option used to straighten teeth for people who have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. They apply gentle pressure to the teeth on a continuous basis, which will eventually shift them into a more even alignment.
Why you should go to an Orthodontist and not a General Dentist:
Orthodontists and General Dentists undertake the same training initially, But Orthodontic specialists complete 3 years of further training after they graduate dental school.
Orthodontic courses go beyond basic dental training and have a more specific focus. They are specifically trained so that they can very accurately predict how teeth will move. This is not taught at dental school and you are therefore more likely to get the result you want in the shortest period of time.
Preparing for Braces
When you meet with the Orthodontist, he/she will ask you questions about your health and perform a clinical exam. The orthodontist will likely order a series of X-rays of your mouth, along with photographs and an impression that will be used to create a model of your teeth. Once he/she has all the relevant information, the Orthodontist will prescribe a plan of treatment best suited for your particular situation.
Different types of Braces:
Metal Braces are the most prevalent type of braces. They comprise of metal brackets, rubber bands and archwires which are attached to the front of your teeth with special glue.
Metal braces are the most affordable and versatile option. They can be used to correct more severe cases of misalignment. They’re also the least subtle option.
On the other hand, treatment with metal braces tends to last less than with the other options, so even if you might feel self-conscious for a year or two, you can take them off sooner.
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces in terms of mechanism, the difference is that they’re made using ceramic material which blends better with the natural colour of the teeth.
Lingual braces are also similar to metal braces: they’re both made of metal and they have the same components. The difference is that lingual braces are attached to the back of your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
Invisalign is very different from the previous types of braces because they don’t use the typical brackets and wires, instead, they’re based on a system of custom-made clear plastic aligners you wear over your which you change every couple of weeks.
Procedure for Braces:
Typically, the orthodontist will begin by thoroughly cleaning and drying the teeth. They will then apply glue to your teeth in order to attach the brackets. Once they are in place, he/she will install the wire into the brackets and use elastic to secure them in place. The entire process usually takes between 1 hour.
Though the procedure itself is not painful, it is not uncommon to feel some level of discomfort afterwards. Initially, your tongue and cheek will rub against the braces, which may cause some sensitivity, and your teeth may feel sore. Getting used to the braces will typically take about a week.
