A straighter smile is not just about aesthetics but also affect the health of your smile. It is more difficult to clean your teeth if they are misaligned or crooked. When you have straight teeth and bite and jaw position, you will have less cavities which can lead to less gum disease and health issues. Most common way for an orthodontist to correct the alignment and bite is with braces. But there are other options such as clear braces or invisalign or lingual braces to straighten your teeth. Besides traditional metal or clear braces treament, now you can choose Invisalign braces which are basically clear plastic aligners which are more comfortable to wear and look better and are less noticeable when you smile. You can take the out when you eat and brush but you will have to wear them for at least 22 hours a day. Other option is the ceramic braces which are a lot less noticeable and aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes, braces can be placed on the lingual side which is the tongue side but it is more expensive and difficult to control teeth movement and also more uncomfortable. Today’s orthodontic procedures are less painful and often take less time too. Did you know invisalign treatment can be completed in just 6month to a year in half depending on the severity of your alignment and bite?
Also, don’t let your age keep you from improving your smile. Teeth can be moved at any age. Metal braces or clear ceramic braces or Invisalign are not just for teenagers or children. If you had braces when you were young and didn’t wear the retainers, so your teeth shifted, you can get braces again. A positive about getting braces as an adult is that we are usually better able to take proper care of them and follow instructions as adults than teens.
