New Dental Retainers

These days we know that retainers are for life, to keep teeth from gradually reverting.

What to do if your retainer doesn’t fit anymore

Its important to act quickly

Missing Retainers

Don’t delay. Time is of the essence. If you think your teeth are beginning to move and your retainer is mislaid or doesn’t fit, please don’t wait. Take immediate action, as the quicker you get to a dentist the better. The sooner things are sorted, the less time and money, probably, will need to be spent to get things back to the way they should be.

Please don’t feel embarrassed, it happens a lot.

If you have your retainer but it fits tightly

Don’t be shy, try and push it firmly into place. The teeth will start to move within 24 hours or so, but you may find that you can push them fully into place within a couple of days.

Happy Days! Keep them in for a couple of weeks, (remove only for cleaning and eating) and then continue to wear them every night after that.

If you have recently lost your retainers

Contact your friendly neighbourhood Orthodontic clinic to get you in asap for new impressions and new retainers – remember that every week the teeth move a little further in the wrong direction.

If your teeth have visibly moved

Don’t despair – teeth can ALWAYS be moved back to the correct position no matter what age you are or how long it has been since your orthodontics was completed. At Winning Smiles we have been treating relapsed orthodontic cases for nearly 20 years.

The good news is…

In most cases we do not need to enter back into full-on ‘brace-face’ orthodontics using train tracks and wires! Many cases can be treated with discreet removable aligners such as Inman and Invisalign or even ‘6 month smile’ system.

In cases where the teeth have moved a little further we can still treat you with discreet brackets bonded onto the back of the teeth so they can’t be seen, i.e. Lingual braces.

If you think you might benefit from seeing us, why not book a free consultation today and we can tell you

  • How serious the relapse is
  • How long it will take to fix
  • How much it will cost and details of our monthly payment options

The Free Consultation

Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.

And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.

We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

What they say about us

Gill – Adult Teeth Straightening

Having just finished my Invisalign treatment I feel I must write and thank the whole team at Winning Smiles.

Thinking at the age of 57 there was no way anything could be done for my crooked teeth. I thought I would enquire as my husband had undergone extensive implant work and the result was amazing and very successful.

I had attended an NHS dentist reqularly and thought my teeth must be in a reasonable condition, but after a consultation with Andrew I realised just how bad a condition they were in.

After a few appointments with Andrew and the Hygienist I was referred to ‘Andrew’s Dad’ Mr Fennell for my Invisalign treatment.

It has taken about 18months but the result is really great. The standard of care throughout was professional and friendly from all of the team.

I would thoroughly recommend Invisalign, you get used to wearing the aligners almost immediately and nobody even knows you are having treatment. I am more confident now when I smile than I have ever been!

Thank you Winning Smiles once again and I look forward to my next checkup!

Exemplary Customer Service

From start to finish the Winning Smiles team have had an exemplary approach to customer service. The initial call to make an appointment for a consultation was handled extremely professionally by Dental Receptionists. They were able to make an appointment around my busy schedule and I got an appointment within 10 days.

The consultation went ahead as planned where I had photos taken of my teeth and then advised of the best plan of action to improve my misaligned teeth. Also during the consultation, I was advised of the payment options and potential payment plans if I couldn’t settle the bill as a whole.

Then came the pre-dental treatment to ready me for my braces. The Hygienist was absolutely brilliant. She cleaned my teeth and also went in to great detail on how I should clean and maintain my teeth.

Due to a large Frenulum, I had to undergo a Frenectomy. I was extremely nervous about having the Frenectomy but was reassured by the Orthodontist and the procedure was carried out quickly and pain-free.

Following the Frenectomy I had my braces installed and revisited the practice every 4-6 weeks for 11 months. During these visits again all the team were very courteous and polite and put me at ease.

The day the braces were finally removed the Orthodontist removed I was provided with a fixed brace and measured-up for a night brace to also use. I was reminded how to clean my teeth and also that if I had any problems to come back and see them.

So to close this practice lives up to its name because I truly have a ‘Winning Smile’ now.
Thank you.
