Straighten up your smile!

Some adults dream of straightening up their misaligned teeth. This can be difficult when faced with the thought of a metallic smile that is reminiscent of high school teenagers with acne and dating nightmares. Thankfully, you don’t have to revisit your youth to get your teeth straightened; you need Invisalign. Invisalign is suitable for mild to moderate misalignment issues. It consists of clear plastic aligners that are made bespoke for your mouth using 3D scanning technology. From these scans, you can also see an animation of how your teeth will look like after treatment, to really get you excited about what your Dentist in Banbury can help you achieve!

What type of issues does Invisalign correct?

Invisalign can be used to help with gapped teeth or straightening and realigning teeth. If you have an initial consultation with your Dentist in Banbury at Amsel & Wilkins, we will be able to advise if this is the best course of treatment for you. Invisalign also has a range specific for teenagers if your children need to realign their teeth as well.

How does Invisalign work?

The aligners sit close to the gumline and apply gentle pressure to the teeth, moving them gradually into the desired position. You don’t need to wear them when you eat and drink, so you won’t need to deal with any messy clean up operations after a relaxing dinner with friends! The beauty of aligners is that you will have the flexibility to take them out for special occasions or sports, for example, and when you are wearing them, people shouldn’t really notice that they are in your mouth. It’s a discreet and convenient solution to teeth straightening. Forget the ‘metal mouth’ comments that teens used to endure when they were at school, this is hi-tech comfort and style that shouldn’t even be noticed until you flash your brilliant new smile at everybody. Bring on the compliments – we all like those!


If you would like to find out more about Invisalign, or any of our services, don’t hesitate to contact us. We offer a warm and friendly service from the reception through to our treatment rooms. We are happy to have a consultation to discuss any of your concerns about your teeth and we will advise on the best course of treatment for you. With our expertise and understanding approach, we will have you smiling your best smile. Let us lead on!

Amsel & Wilkins: A Dentist in Banbury for you

Finding a dentist in Banbury can be overwhelming with so many to choose from, especially when you want to pick one who you can trust.

Read on to find out about one of our popular treatments: Dental Implants.

What are they?

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be feeling embarrassed and lacking in self-esteem. This doesn’t need to be the case with the right treatment. Talking to your dentist in Banbury about the options available may result in different solutions; at Amsel & Wilkins, implants offer a discreet and convenient long-term solution.

Implants are titanium screws that are attached to the jaw bone. They act as artificial roots to which replacement teeth can be attached, such as crowns or bridges.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants ensure that your replacement teeth are securely fitted, meaning that you can eat and drink whatever you want. You can also brush and floss as normal, that your replacement teeth last a long time – if not, forever! The beauty of dental implants is that they won’t be as noticeable as artificial teeth. They will look and feel natural, giving you the confidence to smile with ease. As such, many people prefer them to dentures which can be loose fitting and uncomfortable at times. In fact, even dentures can be attached to implants to prevent movement.

Although dental implants have been around for 30 years, the technology has improved and it is now even possible to have a whole set of teeth replaced in the same day. Your dentist in Banbury can offer treatment with just local anaesthetic in most cases, meaning that you won’t have to undergo major surgery for the procedure.

Are there any issues I may need to be aware of?

In some cases, when teeth have been missing, bone recession can occur. This can result in a sunken mouth appearance, which will be rectified when the teeth are replaced. If there is not enough bone to attach the screws to, a bone graft may be required. Your dentist will be able to tell you if this is necessary during the consultation. The good news is, many people are eligible for this course of treatment. Bring on the secure smiles!

What do I need to do next?

If you’re looking for a dentist for any area of dental treatments, Amsel & Wilkins are here to help. We look forward to welcoming all of our patients and if you do require dental implants, remember that opting for these will give you a natural looking smile that will last and allow you to eat and drink naturally too. By simply booking in for a consultation, we can look at all your dental needs and help you to get the right treatment for you. There’s no reason to put off having a wonderful smile and treating yourself to the look you want.
