There for everybody
For the past six years, a devoted team of dental practitioners at Cheltenham Dental Spa have been fully committed to providing patients with a relaxed and atmospheric dental experience, helping to make dentistry as soothing and pain free as it can possibly be. Initially the practice was opened in 2013 by married couple Dr Ghaleb and Donna Karein who, combined, have the shared experience of over 14 years of cosmetic dentistry behind them – plus the invaluable life skills involved in raising two vibrant and active youngsters. It is the exercise of raising these youngsters that spurred the married couple to launch their ‘Tooth Fairy Clinic’ which was established as a fun filled way of educating children on the importance and value of dental wellbeing in a captivating fashion.
Cosmetic braces in Cheltenham
A common aspect of dentistry at Cheltenham Dental Spa, for both adults and children alike, is the installation of cosmetic braces. These forms of braces are primarily used to treat superficial issues such as protruding or misaligned teeth, and not in instances of serious damage where a specialist orthodontist may be called upon. Cosmetic braces are generally more discreet than conventional orthodontics such as typical fused ‘train-track’ braces which are clearly visible and can have a detrimental impact on a patient’s social wellbeing. Often cosmetic braces are removable and offer a large degree more flexibility for patients who wish to undergo essential dental realignment, without attracting a great deal of unwanted attention from peers or colleagues. Treatment of this sort can vastly boost a person’s self-esteem and confidence as they can carry out treatment at a time that is convenient to them – such as when sleeping or at home – and find their smiles restored to their fullest after their journey with braces in Cheltenham.
Discrete dental aligners
Various other forms of dental alignment procedures are on offer at Cheltenham Dental Spa, such as Clear braces, Damon aligners and Incognito braces. Clear braces are similar to conventional braces in Cheltenham that they are fused to the front of a patient’s mouth, however they are constructed from transparent plastic alloy which is matched to the pigment of a patient’s teeth and as such is far less noticeable. Damon aligners are retainers which are fitted to the contours of a patient’s teeth, and when worn gradually align their teeth to the specifications set out with a practitioner of their choosing before treatment beings.
Filling the gaps in patient’s smiles
Another service which is on offer at Cheltenham Dental Spa is the installation of dental implants. Implants are only generally offered as a last resort to deal with teeth that have been lost or damaged beyond repair. The process of installing dental implants consists of a small hole being drilled into the gap in the patient’s gum where the tooth or teeth are missing. Then a titanium screw is inserted into the gum and given time to heal. After a brief period, during which time the titanium fuses with the bone in the patient’s jaw, a replica tooth made of porcelain or plastic is then put in place and thus the gap is filled with a lifelike, good-as-new tooth. In our experience, treatment of this sort can vastly boost a patient’s self-confidence as they can once again smile and laugh, without worrying about exposing a large gap between teeth.
