New Year.. a new smile.. A new you?

Are you now looking at photos from christmas wishing you had not smiled? Then start the new year by taking the first step towards an amazing new smile!!

Teeth are one of the first things others notice about you when they meet and talk to you. All you have to do is flash a smile and people will be judging you on how nice your teeth look. So you want to keep your teeth healthy and, at the same time, beautiful.

David McConville provides specialist Orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages in his clinics in Donegal and Sligo.

What are The benefits of orthodontics?

An attractive smile is a pleasant “side effect” of orthodontic treatment.  It contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image—important qualities at every age.

Straight teeth help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums.  Teeth that work better also tend to look better.   A pleasing appearance is a vital component of self-confidence.  A person’s self-esteem often improves as orthodontic treatment brings teeth, lips and face into proportion.  In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve a person’s general attitude toward life.

It has been clinically proven that a beautiful smile leads to higher self-esteem.  People with beautiful smiles have a lot to be happy about.

Orthodontists are qualified dentists, who after graduating from dental school, go on to study Orthodontics for an additional three years. Dr McConville had specialist training at Trinity College Dublin and is a member of the Orthodontic Society of Ireland.  Selecting an orthodontist who is a member of the Orthodontic Society of Ireland is your assurance that you have chosen an orthodontic specialist.  By learning about tooth movement (orthodontics) and guidance of facial development (dentofacial orthopedics), orthodontists are the uniquely trained experts in dentistry to straighten teeth and align jaws.

How do you know if you need treatment?

Below are some early warning signs indicating it is time for an orthodontic exam:

Early or late loss of baby teeth

Difficulty in chewing or biting

Mouth breathing

Finger sucking or other oral habits

Crowding, misplaced, or blocked-out teeth

Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude or retrude

Speech difficulty

Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth

Protruding teeth

Teeth that meet in an abnormal way or don’t meet at all

Facial imbalance or asymmetry

Grinding or clenching of teeth

How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?

Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws.  These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws.  The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective for you; a comprehensive assessment is required to determine your treatment need.

Dr McConville treats both children and adults at the practice,

Some patients may be concerned about crooked teeth or improving their smile but feel they would not like to wear conventional “braces” or “train tracks”.  The clinic specialises in the very latest “invisible” brace systems for all ages: the result is a stunning smile without anybody noticing you had treatment at all. 

Other dental complaints, like teeth that are mishapen, damaged or missing, can also be fixed. People with missing teeth have the option of dental implants.

David opened his specialist orthodontic clinic in Sligo 5 years ago and 2 years ago opened a second clinic in Donegal Town.  The clinic has installed the latest in computer technology including digital imaging, photography, and electronic patient records.  They are now one of the few practices in Ireland to have a CT scanner.  The highly accurate imaging and measurement provided by a CT scan allows a greater level of precision when planning treatment and therefore ensures that patients are offered the most effective care possible.

By attending for a consultation you can take the first step to deciding how you would like to improve your smile.
