“When I started treatment, I was not confident with my smile. I had a lot of teeth removed as a young child and the experience left me feeling nervous about visiting the dentist and wishing that there had been an alternative to having so many teeth removed.
I wish I had taken up orthodontic treatment sooner. The results are amazing and this has transformed the shape of my teeth and restored confidence.
The experience at SmileLux has been positive throughout. The team are helpful and friendly and very efficient and attentive. Dr Hirani explains every step of the way and reassures you if you have any concerns. My personal orthodontic treatment took 3 years and it is certainly a commitment, but I am glad that I took that step and have felt confident throughout the treatment process that I am being well looked after. It has definitely been worth it. As a patient you will feel valued and cared for. The whole team work well together and you feel welcomed and assured.”

We see many different types of cases here at SmileLux in Milton Keynes, from the most simple alignment using a section of a brace to the most complex cases where full braces are required. We usually estimate that treatment would take a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 2 years however often if a case is extremely difficult, it may take longer. It also depends on how quickly a patient responds to the treatment, we often will not know this until treatment starts. 

Our Specialist Orthodontist in Milton Keynes, Dr Sunil Hirani, has many years of experience in dealing with all different types of cases. Having originally trained to Hospital Consultant level, he still undergoes regular training and development to be one of the very best in his field and is proud to be able to offer this level of expertise to our patients to achieve such wonderful results.

Great result using ceramic braces and Suresmile technology

This patient had what we call a “Deep Bite” meaning that the upper front teeth cover far too much of the lower teeth when biting. This can cause problems later in life such as tooth wear. You can see from the photos that some wear of the lower front teeth has already occurred. Over time the teeth can become very sensitive to hot and cold and can become brittle needing further restorative dentistry such as fillings, crowns or veneers.

We all associate having braces to cosmetically improve smiles however people are becoming more aware of their teeth and are keen to keep them as healthy as possible for their whole lives. Straight teeth are much easier to keep clean.

SmileLux is a Specialist Orthodontic Centre in Milton Keynes. We see patients of all ages and our Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Sunil Hirani is trained to Hospital Consultant level and is used to transforming all types of smiles, from the most simple amount of movement to the most complex!

Happy patient after orthodontic treatment with ceramic braces

“Dr Hirani was very highly recommended to me by a colleague and having completed my treatment, I’m certainly not disappointed and I’m literally grinning from ear to ear! My journey was more to do with functional problems having lost teeth as a young teenager. My bite was very uncomfortable and my ability to chew was restricted to one side. The result of my treatment has been excellent with every tooth meticulously repositioned to rectify my problems with the added bonus of a perfect smile. Dr Hirani takes a very personal approach to caring for his clients and having referred by him to another specialist for implants, I’m still under his watchful eye so that he is confident my final result is the one we’ve worked towards achieving. The SmileLux team are fantastic and have been a huge support to me throughout my treatment. It’s reassuring to know that it’s not the end of the line either as Dr Hirani and his team will be there to continue maintaining my smile and healthy mouth for years to come. Thank you!!”

Amazing words from a patient we miss lots! What a great result with ceramic braces

“For years I was always commenting on how bad my teeth looked in pictures, something I had been self conscious about for years.
In 2014 I finally decided to take the plunge, my dentist recommended SmileLux and the team arranged a free consultation for me to discuss my options, prices etc.
I then booked in to see Dr Hirani who gave me a full examination including x-rays to decide what treatment was best for me.
I was consulted every step of the way and always knew what was happening next.
I had the ceramic fixed braces on the top at first, then on the bottom a few months later.
During my treatment I moved over seas but was content to stay with Dr Hirani and the team made every effort to make the appointments at a time that suited me best.
I had to have some teeth removed which Dr Hirani also performed. This slowed down my time a little but could not be avoided.
I went through a period of finding the braces uncomfortable and emailed the team to say I was unhappy and they couldn’t do enough to reassure and support me.
The customer service at smileLux is second to none and they always go above and beyond!!
I am thoroughly delighted with the result and cannot recommend SmileLux highly enough!!”

“I am extremely pleased with my teeth now I have come to the end of my treatment. I was very unhappy about the look of my teeth before I came to SmileLux and couldn’t be happier with how they look now. I was always happy to come into treatment. Both Dr Hirani and all of the ladies in the team could not have been friendlier, kinder or more welcoming both to me and my family.”

“I had been unhappy with my teeth since they had began to move after orthodontic treatment as a teenager. I would hate looking at photos of myself and so I decided to look into treatment once more. I researched many places and had some initial consultations however, when I researched and visited SmileLux for the first time I know absolutely that they were the right practice I wanted to carry out my treatment. Dr Hirani is extremely knowledgeable, he explained each step of my treatment carefully and the SmileLux team are all very patient focused. They will go the extra mile for you. My treatment and care have been very personalised even other dental professionals have commented on the expertise of Dr Hirani. I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I can’t explain how grateful and lucky I feel to have been able to have orthodontic treatment at SmileLux.”

Keeping your teeth clean with fixed braces

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Excellent oral hygiene is an essential part to gaining a beautiful smile. If oral hygiene is poor during orthodontic treatment and plaque is left to build around your brackets then this could lead to permanent white and brown marks on the teeth. This is called decalcification. Alternatively you may be more prone to decay and gum disease.

BRUSHING

During orthodontic treatment with fixed braces you will need to ensure that you clean your teeth at least three times a day. This includes morning, night and after every meal.

Electric or Manual

You can use an electric or manual toothbrush, however a brush with a small head is usually useful. You can even purchase manual and electric toothbrush heads which are specifically designed for braces.  Use short, forward and backwards movements when brushing and make sure you brush above and below your brace to clean your gum lines, not forgetting the inner and chewing surfaces of your teeth. Ensure that you spend at least 2/3 minutes brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste.

Travel toothbrush

You never know when you may need to brush your teeth so make sure that you always keep a travel toothbrush in your bag at all times.

Interbrace® Brush

 

Once you have brushed your teeth, you will then need to clean in-between your brackets. You can do this with an Interbrace® brush. Place this in-between your brackets, underneath the archwire and brush gently. This is important because your manual or electric toothbrush will not reach these areas.

TePe® Brushes

 

We highly recommend daily use of TePe® brushes to help keep your gums healthy. TePe’s® are a great substitute for floss if you find flossing too time consuming. The next alternative to TePe’s® is the Philips Sonicare Airflosser™ – perfect to clean in-between the teeth quickly and efficiently. 

Mouthwash

Using mouthwash e.g. Swirl™ on a daily basis will give you an extra boost of fluoride during the day which will help in keeping your teeth strong. We recommend Swirl™ mouthwash which is especially designed for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.

DISCLOSING TABLETS

To ensure you are cleaning your teeth well, we recommend the use of disclosing tablets. These tablets highlight where plaque has developed on the teeth and around the gum line, which allows you to concentrate on brushing specific areas which you may be missing.

How to use a disclosing tablet:

  • Place a disclosing tablet in your mouth.
  • Chew thoroughly and spread over teeth and gums with your tongue until your mouth is completely covered.
  • Spit out any saliva.
  • Rinse your mouth out with water.
  • Areas of plaque will be stained by the dye and will show you where you are not brushing properly.
  • Brush your teeth until the dye has been removed.
  • You can do this as often as you like to check whether you are brushing well enough.

CHECK UPS AND HYGIENE

It is very important that you continue to visit your dentist once every six months for routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your dentist to make sure you are receiving the best care possible.

It is also imperative that you continue regular hygiene visits with your dentist or hygienist. Periodontal disease (gum disease) can develop or worsen during orthodontic treatment due to many factors, but most often due to lack of adequate oral hygiene. Seeing a hygienist or gum specialist every 3-6 months will ensure that the health of your gums is kept under control.

Treatment with ceramic braces – “The care and kindness I’ve been shown at each appointment by everyone in the practice has been amazing”

I’ve always hated my teeth and hid them when I smiled. After seeing Dr Hirani in October, it took me a year to pluck up the courage to go back and start the work. I started my treatment as an extremely nervous patient but the care and kindness I’ve been shown at each appointment by everyone in the practice has been amazing.

Dr Hirani talked through every step so I understood what was happening at each appointment. If I felt even a bit uncomfortable he would stop work until I was ready.

I’m absolutely delighted by the end result and I can’t thank him enough for my lovely straight teeth, I’m finally smiling and my confidence has improved.

Thank you all for my amazing care throughout.
