Angel Dental Implant Centre
We offer the fixed appliance therapy with white porcelain brackets and white coated wires for adult patients who desire to have straight teeth, close the gaps between the teeth and whoever wants to improve their smile and look.
Invisalign is a new technology which can also be provided for our patients. The advantage of this technology is the elimination of brackets and wires. The correction of the crooked tooth or teeth is via a clear night guard look-alike device.
Why might I need orthodontic treatment?
- To improve the appearance of the teeth and face
- To move teeth prior to crown or bridgework
- To improve the health of the teeth and gum
- To improve function i.e. to make it easier to eat
In this practice, we concentrate on aesthetics and we offer fixed appliance orthodontic treatment for adult patients only in order to relieve crowding and straighten crooked teeth or closing gaps between teeth. On the other hand, comprehensive treatment for adults tends to be difficult and technically demanding. The absence of growth means that growth modification to treat jaw discrepancies is not possible. The only possibilities are tooth movement for camouflage (which we offer) or orthognathic surgery (jaw operation). We use aesthetic brackets which are white with white wires and elastic bands in order to make your treatment less visible to the public.
Pain is very minimal but in the beginning soreness, about 3-5 days and the occurrence of mouth ulcers are possible.
The length of the treatment is about 12-24 months and we see you every 6-8 weeks.
At the end of your treatment, you will be using your retainers (removable) actively for 6-9 months and from time to time afterwards in order to prevent any relapse and keep the teeth straight.

Evidence from randomised controlled trials shows an increased ability to chew tough food, and increased patient satisfaction with implants in comparison to normal dentures.
There are some risk factors which can reduce the success rate of dental implants. They can be classified as Systemic and Local factors.
Systemic risk factors: Osteoporosis, Diabetes (Type I and II), Coagulation problems, Hypo/Hyper-parathyroidism, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Crohn`s Disease, Medications such as Bisphosphonate, Smoking
Local risk factors: Poor plaque control and oral hygiene, Smoking, Bruxism, Active periodontal disease, Lack of primary stability of the implant after insertion, Poor access, High smile line (Aesthetic risk factor).
The complications related to dental implants are as follows:
Mucositis: Localized lesion without bone loss around an osseointegrated implant.
Peri-implantitis: Localized lesion including bone loss around an osseointegrated implant Soft tissue complications: Fistula, excessive swelling, hyperplasia, etc. Implant related complications: Fracture, Loosening of connections, Fracture of restorations over the implant or superstructure.
Factors which can increase the success rate are:
- Type, Size or Diameter, Length, Number and Location of the implants.
- Not smoking
- Good oral hygiene and plaque control
- Not being a Bruxist (Not grinding your teeth)
- Absence of peri-implantitis on review appointments (check with clinical and x-ray examinations)
More information will be given in consultation visit.
