  • Warning on Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments and 'Rapid Orthodontics' - Orthodontic Society of Ireland
    short term orthodontic is undertaken to recover the situation the back and forth tipping pressures the teeth will have been exposed to can resorb the roots of the teeth and so compromise their long term retention Consultant Orthodontist and Vice Dean of the RCSEd s Faculty of Dental Surgery Robert Chate who has previously published the College s concerns in regards to short term orthodontics in the prestigious British Dental Journal feels that some dentists may be putting financial gain ahead of their patients wellbeing He says The rise in complaints clearly shows that the benefits of these quick fix treatments are undoubtedly being oversold with little or no mention about their risks and limitations There is a failure on the part of some dentists to manage the expectations of their patients placing an overreliance on digital systems in which the desired outcome is simulated on a computer screen before treatment giving their patients a rose tinted view of what essentially will be a limited result With up to a quarter of orthodontic retainers failing after six years of use the relapse potential for crowded teeth that have been managed using short term aligners is very real Similarly the risk of root resorption associated with repetitive tipping of teeth if they need to be constantly realigned over a patient s life time is very real Associated with this comes the risk of placing a patient s long term dental health in jeopardy all for the sake of the enticing lure of a quick fix Consultant in Restorative Dentistry at King s College Dental Institute Martin Kelleher who is a Fellow of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at RCSEd is an outspoken critic of what he terms destructodontics He says Patients should be given neutral and truthful information about the risks and long term implications of porcelain veneer smile makeovers including real photographs of what their own healthy teeth will be reduced to This fashion for what I term porcelain pornography is a real and present danger for society and the dental profession at large This type of dentistry appears to be promoted by individuals and in certain dental publications that have strong commercial interests in their proliferation Lured by promises of rapid profits some younger dental colleagues are being encouraged down a path leading to the unnecessary destruction of sound teeth and in the process hazarding not just their patients health and wellbeing but also their own professional status which is largely based on patient s trusting them to do the right thing for them Robert Chate continues The demographics of the patient base being targeted with these supposedly less invasive quick fixes are likely to be young adults who have not had orthodontic treatment in the past they now have enough disposable income and wish to undergo a convenient and quick procedure As a general rule these individuals can be unwilling or impatient to wait for anything that doesn t offer rapid results and are therefore prime for being

  • Be aware of quick fix clinics - Orthodontic Society of Ireland
    teeth fully corrected Comprehensive treatment provided by specialist orthodontists ensures that following the treatment the patient is biting correctly and the teeth are in harmony with the jaws and lips Please see www orthodontics ie As part of this campaign the OSI is advising people that are considering getting their own or their children s teeth straightened to follow this advice in order to get the best possible experience Check qualifications Some dentists including cosmetic dentists who provide orthodontic treatment have only had a few hours training in procedures to straighten teeth So it is advisable to ask the orthodontist dentist how much training they have had in orthodontics and with the type of brace they are proposing to fit Orthodontists have first trained as general dentists by completing five years of dental undergraduate training and have then undertaken a further three years of training in orthodontics to qualify as orthodontic specialists and are recognised as such by the Dental Council of Ireland Consider all the options Any specialist orthodontist will discuss all the possible types of brace that can be used to correct your teeth You should be wary if you are only offered one option or one type ofbrace Don t expect a quick fix While it is true that simple straightening of the front teeth can be carried out in as little as six months this is not always a long term solution It often takes at least 12 months to get the teeth fully corrected biting correctly and in harmony with the jaws and lips Speaking in advance of the campaign launch Dr Katherine Condren President OSI and Specialist Orthodontist Terenure D6 said Orthodontics is a very specialised branch of dentistry We have the required training to analyse and determine the causes of orthodontic problems and
