Visiting our Dentist Welwyn Garden City helps you look after your teeth and prevents the development of excess plaque and tartar in your mouth. If plaque and tartar build up in your mouth this can result in the formation of cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Some people are more prone to plaque and tartar developing on their teeth than others. Smokers have significantly more tartar form on the surface of the teeth as do those who suffer from dry mouth or wear braces. Those with crooked, wonky and overcrowded teeth are also more prone to plaque and tartar building up on the surface of their teeth. This is because there are hard to reach areas in which bacteria and food particles remain even after brushing or flossing. Plaque is made up of these food particles mixed with saliva to form a sticky layer on the surface of your teeth, hardening over time to become tartar.

To reduce the levels of plaque and tartar in your mouth you can speak to our dentist Welwyn Garden City and find out about straightening your teeth. If your teeth are straight and symmetrical then they are easier to clean and there is less chance of bacteria and food particles lingering in your mouth. Your toothbrush is able to reach all the surfaces of your teeth and floss is able to get between the teeth. This helps keep your teeth clean, healthy and strong.


Here at Neel dentistry our Dentist Welwyn Garden City can help you straighten your teeth with Invisalign.

Invisalign is a modern teeth straightening system that works using clear thermoplastic aligners rather than wires and brackets to straighten your teeth. Invisalign with our Dentist Welwyn Garden City is convenient, effective and highly discrete. This makes it a popular choice for teeth straightening amongst patients of all ages. It can be used for mild or moderate misalignment issues of the teeth. This includes protruding front teeth, overcrowded teeth, overlapping teeth, minor gaps between the teeth and different types of bite disorders.

To find out if your smile can be straightened using Invisalign you can undergo a smile assessment. We will assess the misalignment issues of your teeth and put together a treatment plan for you. We will help you make an informed decision with the use of a three-dimensional iTero scan that shows you how your teeth will look following the treatment. If you are happy with the possible results we can design a sequence of the aligners that will gradually push your teeth into a neater formation. You can begin the treatment within a few weeks.

Once the aligners arrive at the dental practice, you will be invited for an initial fitting after which you change the aligners in the comfort of your own home. You can visit our Dentist every three or four months to find out how the process is coming along and within an average of 12 months you should have a brand new smile that is easier to maintain and less prone to developing plaque and tartar or dental complications in the future.
