Why are straight teeth important?

Appearance: Straight, white teeth are more attractive than crooked, yellowed and broken down teeth. Along with the straight teeth comes an improved bite. Various bite problems from overbite to underbite can cause excessive wear of your teeth, possible jaw joint problems and even problems breathing. Crowded teeth, crooked teeth, overjet and overbite can all lead to swollen, red, bleeding gums because it is difficult to brush and floss around them. This leads to next reason to get your teeth straightened.

Straight teeth are healthier teeth: Straight teeth get fewer cavities, are less likely to have problems with discoloration, uneven wear and fractures. The gums are healthier too and therefore you are less likely to develop gum disease. Studies have identified 4 pathogens that are associated with poorly positioned teeth.*

Straight teeth and healthy gums mean you can chew anything you want. Your teeth are less likely to be sensitive to heat or cold and you lower your risk of painful and expensive dental problems.

Feel better about yourself:  Appearance does matter. Studies have proven over and over again the advantages of an attractive appearance and smile as it relates to job opportunities. The amount of money you make and even the people you attract into your life. Like it or not, your smile is a reflection of you.

A longer life may be possible: There are well known studies that prove that people who floss daily will live an extra 7 years longer. Flossing is fun when you have room for the floss and not so fun when your teeth are crooked and crowded. A study done in 2009 and published in the American Journal of Cardiology showed that people with gum disease are 24 -35 percent more likely to suffer coronary artery disease. As mentioned above, straight teeth are easier to keep clean and therefore you are less likely to have gum disease and heart disease too!

Preventing your teeth from getting fractured: Protruding (buck) teeth are easily broken from an accidental fall, sports related injury, car accidents and schoolyard brawls. By getting your teeth straight and your protruding teeth back inside your mouth, you will find that you have a better chance of keeping them from injury. Of course, if you do play contact sports, we always recommend a mouth guard to protect your teeth during orthodontics and after they are perfectly straight.

Had my teeth straightened by Stefan using Fastbraces and am thrilled with the result. It took just under 7 months and he gave me fantastic support and care. Wonderful!
— Jacquie Campbell
I recently had Fastbraces treatment with Dr Van Vuuren on my upper and lower teeth. The process was painless and has given great results, now protected for life by the retainers. He was highly recommended by a dentist friend of mine who is in Manchester and he is definitely one of the best practitioners for this treatment, as well as reasonably priced. I had to travel across London for sessions, but it was well worth it! Highly recommend him.

I have been a client of this practice for over 10 years now. Recently I decided to get fast braces to straighten my wonky teeth and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Not only did Stephan and his team take great care of me every step of the way, they make visiting the dentist a pleasure. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough - fantastic service all round.
— Alex Robertson
5* service! I want to say a big thank you, to Stephan and everyone in the practice. I recently had fast braces fitted, and couldn’t be happier with the results! Amazed that I got straight teeth in under 90 days.

If I had any problems during the process, the team would be there to ensure that it was resolved on the same day. Prior to going to IGDP, I had avoided the dentist due to previous bad experiences. It’s safe to say Stephan and his team have restored my faith in dentists, and IGDP will now be my go to Practice.

A massive thank you to Dr.Stephan Van Vurren and to Dr Jose Fontes. These two have been fantastic and have truly made a difference in my life.

Jose did an amazing job with the surgery and his warmth and kindness put me at ease through the whole process. He did a fantastic job and i am so pleased with the results.

Stephan was absolutely fantastic with the fast braces. His professionalism is out of this world and this man really knows his stuff and I highly recommend him. Stephan said it would take 6-9 months to achieve everything and he was spot on.

I am now able to smile with confidence and truly am thankful to the team at IGDP. All the staff including the receptionists are super helpful and friendly.

My business partner recommended the IGDP dental practice to me just less than a year ago - In particular Stephan, the principal dentist. I needed some routine work on my teeth which was straight forward and well taken care of but ultimately I wanted to have my teeth straightened with the help of braces. Stephan recommended Turbo Braces which certainly seems to have been the way forward. It was estimated that the entire treatment would take between 9 and 12 months, however much to my delight Stephan removed my braces just on 6 months down the line. Not only am I thrilled with my new smile but also I can’t recommend Stephan enough. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and most of an excellent orthodontist.Thanks for everything Stephan and see you soon.
— Konrad Korytowski
Really happy with the treatment. Lovely friendly staff, super quick, efficient treatment ( turbo fast brace ) mine took only 11 weeks and super straight teeth! Would highly recommend to anyone feeling a little insecure about their teeth!
— Olivia Campus
I recently finished my Fastbraces treatment and I’m really happy with the results. I had them fitted in August and removed 6 months later - it went really fast and was so worth it! Stephan and his team are great, thanks to them I can’t stop smiling now :)
— Aneta Milosierna
Great and, probably, the fastest orthodontist service. Stephan is exceptional and overall very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended. Very knowledgeable and perceives perfection. In the end - it’s totally worth it. Very satisfied with results (finished under a year, which is great)
— Jura Kulikov
Finished my Fastbraces treatment with Stephan and the team this morning and I am simply over the moon with the results. I have to praise the whole team for my experience there. The staff are extremely professional and friendly, which made each visit a delight. It is stated that tooth movement can happen from Day 1, which I was very skeptical about. However within minutes of leaving the practice I could see and feel my lower incisors had already moved and continued to do so. My treatment took longer than anticipated, but this was due to the many adjustments I requested, which Stephan accommodated with ease. Straight after my braces were removed I saw the hygienist Monika who was simply fabulous. She is so knowledgeable and informative. As an adult I was so nervous about embarking on orthodontic treatment but I am so pleased that I took the plunge. I have no hesitation in recommending IGDP for your orthodontic and dentistry needs.
