Orthodontics in Sydenham

Orthodontics is dentistry’s division involving the repositioning and adjustment of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment is recommended for medical and aesthetic reasons. It can improve the function and appearance of your mouth, jaw, and bring a misaligned bite back to optimal functionality, making it easy for you to chew food comfortably.

Lingual braces are the least expensive way to offer a long-term solution to the dilemma of incorrectly aligned teeth. We’re here in order to make you feel happy with the appearance of your smile. Whether this shape, position, or colour are all parts of your smile, we’re capable of giving you the confidence you seek. Our latest braces have allowed us to rapidly and comfortably straighten your teeth.

Having crooked teeth is a huge barrier to proper orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics play a significant function in the battle against long-term problems brought on by abnormal jaw alignment or dental health.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Enhanced Oral Health

Oral health and overall health will benefit from your dentist’s help. Food particles that linger between crooked teeth will increase the appearance of plaque, which contributes to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Your chance of losing your teeth and jawbone is increased if your teeth are improperly positioned and crowded in your mouth.

Teeth Protection

Difficulties with tooth alignment and jaw development may become obvious when a child is still very young. Early intervention can prevent the development of their upper and lower jaws and create ample space for the eruption of several permanent teeth.

If you can’t chew correctly, you risk suffering from malnutrition if not treated.

Self-Confidence Boost

Your state of mind can make you nervous or ashamed, which will prevent you from smiling or laughing. Your mouth may be covered, and you may not even display your smile in photographs.

Corrective treatment improves your lifestyle. The most ideal time to start treatment is as early as possible, since this will minimize the need for any invasive treatments.

Orthodontic care could go beyond merely enhancing your smile. Braces are the primary orthodontic treatment for improving someone’s oral health.

Orthodontists are dentists who specialise in treating oral and dental health. They are trained to recognise and treat periodontal disease and misaligned teeth.

Orthodontists do the following:

  • Supervise facial growth (jawline and bite) in children
  • Diagnose and treat misaligned teeth and jaws (malocclusion)
  • Create a treatment plan that includes braces and retainers
  • Perform teeth straightening surgery
  • Install dental appliances, such as braces, palatal expanders, orthodontic headgear, or Herbst appliances

The field of orthodontics has undergone a significant transformation. We have some fruitful, discreet treatments to choose from. For instance, you may prefer to try hidden braces, which are less conspicuous than even clear braces.

Early treatment is the ideal approach for orthodontic care. With developments in technology and innovations, you can start treatment later in life as well.

The Dentist, Hygienist, Dental Nurses & Especially the Receptionist staff are very Polite, Friendly & most importantly they try to fit you in quickly in the event of an emergency. Recently I couldn’t get the time of work for an emergency appointment for my 81 year old Mum so I called an Uber for her & told the receptionist this. The young Black Lady called me when she ordered & place my Mother in a cab – so she went above & beyond her duties with a lot of Customer Care & Respect for my Mother- Thank You so much

Zehra M.

Friendly staff and a very good turn around for appointments , next step to meet the hygienist if he’s as lovely as the rest of the staff it will be great

Vince A.

Great service! Im usually so nervous when coming in to the dentist but my dentist was so pleasant and polite ! Dulwich Dental Office will definitely be my dentist for life

Tomike O.

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Tom O.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

Tom C.

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

Toby B.

A great surgery; Dr Cavan in particular spent time with me to make sure my new night guards fitted well and were up to the job

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Susie F.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Stella C.

Dr. Cavan is super attentive and thoughtful and great at putting is patients at ease. I hate going to the dentist but havent dreaded it once. Everyone is super friendly and clinic is nice. I could not recommend more.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.
