If a dentist or orthodontist has recently removed your braces, you might feel a sensation as if your teeth are moving. Do not be alarmed, for minor adjustments are commonplace and they are generally no cause for alarm. However, this is why it is very important to wear your retainer.
Retainers act as removable “guides” which will help to keep your pearly whites aligned correctly as they find their permanent positions. Let us look briefly at some other suggestions to adopt after wearing braces.
– Always follow the recommendations provided by your orthodontist.
– If you feel major shifts within your mouth, immediately tell your doctor.
– There can be times when a retainer will require slight adjustments so that it fits correctly (particularly if you are in a significant amount of discomfort).
“Getting orthodontic work done is one of the best things you can do for your smile.”
Dr. Abhishek Kabra
Dr. Kabra has taken over the practice from Mr. Rob Bell, who is semi-retired and continues to work at the practice part-time.
Mr. Bell describes Dr. Kabra as: "a highly qualified dentist… who is likeable and friendly and I hope you will see him with the reassurance that I thoroughly recommend him."
Dr. Kabra qualified from a prestigious dental school in India, and was subsequently recruited to the UK as a dentist. He soon developed an interest in restorative & cosmetic dentistry and subsequently went on to complete a Restorative Diploma, with the respected Royal College of Surgeons. He is also an accredited trainer of newly qualified dentists. He has expertise in utilizing invisible braces to straighten teeth. He also has experience in implant dentistry and can help with snoring and sleep apnoea.
Dr. Kabra says: "I am delighted to offer a broad range of bespoke private treatments, ranging from private general dental care to orthodontics (braces to straighten teeth), dental implants (to replace missing teeth), and facial aesthetics (wrinkle relaxation & dermal fillers)".
"I look forward to meeting each of you personally in the near future and hope to continue a lasting relationship of providing you a lifetime of good oral health."
