Straightening teeth

When you think of braces, you may think of mouths full of metal that had to be worn for a couple of years. Today, there are a number of other options which can be used to straighten  the teeth, ranging from clear to removable braces, so you can find an option which best suits your lifestyle.

Inman Aligner – a removable brace

The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary concept that sees protruding or crowded teeth transformed in a matter of weeks. Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them and Dr Rishika Patel has achieved this certification and provides the treatment here in Cheam.

The Inman Aligner aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth with two opposing spring-loaded aligner bars. It is a removable appliance. This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth, yet it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.
Please book a consultation appointment with Dr Rishika Patel if you would like to know more about the Inman aligner.

Clear fixed braces

Many patients do not like the idea of wearing metal train tracks for a couple of years. Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic braces solution that fits your lifestyle. Six Month Smiles and Quick Straight Teeth systems are clear brace systems designed to straighten your teeth in about six months. See below for some examples of our work.

Please book a consultation appointment with Dr Pradhan Bopanna or Dr Rishika Patel if you would like to know more about clear braces.

These cases were treated within six months using clear, fixed braces on the top teeth only and without carrying out any extractions.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

We at Eastleigh Dental Practice have taken the sad and difficult but correct decision; given the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic to temporarily close our dental practice until further notice.

Routine dentistry involves aerosol generating procedures, and this carries a significant risk in increasing the transmission of the coronavirus.

The best way for us to ensure the safety of the staff and you - our patients, your family, your friends and the rest of the community is to close the surgery for a while. This will help reduce social contact, slow down transmission, not inundate the healthcare system and most importantly reduce the number of fatalities.

We will be contacting all patients who have existing appointments on a month by month basis to cancel them and once we receive further notification from the government as to when we can open, we will arrange new appointments.

During this period of closure, if existing patients experience a dental emergency they can contact the principal dentist 9am to 5pm via email on infoeastleighdental@gmail.com leaving their name, a contact number and the nature of the emergency. According to new NHS guidance the outcome will be advice, painkillers, possible antibiotics or a referral via a Local Urgent Dental Care system only.

Outside of these hours if the emergency involves pain that cannot be controlled by painkillers, swelling, trauma you must contact 111, who will guide you through various options.

Stay safe and let's hope this will all be over soon!
