Improve Your Teeth and Smile with Invisible Braces
Your teeth and smile have a huge impact on your overall appearance. If they do not make you happy then it can affect your self-confidence and your self-esteem.
The first thing most people notice about you is your smile, therefore, good dental health and a beautiful smile are very important. Good dental health is also important for overall wellbeing.
Dental health issues can have a systemic impact and they can also affect your mental attitude. You need to speak to your dentist and find out about addressing the issues that are affecting the appearance and the health of your teeth.
If you have crooked or wonky teeth, not only is it noticeable every time you smile, but it can affect the way people perceive you. Studies show that those with a beautiful white smile are thought to be more attractive and appear younger.
If you are proud of your smile you will be inclined to smile more often and it will have a positive impact on you and how people feel about you too.
Are there any advantages of having invisible aligners fitted? Yes, there are, and they will be discussed here.
The rise and rise of Invisalign
This makes it one of the most sought-after dental treatment options across the world. Since it was first established in 1999, Invisalign has been used to correct more than 14 million smiles worldwide. This includes patients who have undergone traditional orthodontic treatment earlier in life.
Invisalign is suitable for patients of all ages including younger children and it can be used later on in life to realign unwanted movement of your teeth.
Individually tailored orthodontic treatment
Your dentist will be able to put together an individually tailored treatment plan that is convenient for you.
You will need to undergo a thorough examination of your mouth to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong.
If you are suffering from tooth decay or gum disease then your dentist will recommend that these issues are addressed prior to teeth straightening.
If you have excess plaque or tartar on your teeth then you will need to undergo a hygienist appointment to remove this before you begin straightening your teeth.
The misalignment issues of your teeth will also be assessed to make sure that these invisible aligners are the right choice for you.
What does Invisalign Fix?
Most misconfigurations of the teeth can be addressed with Invisalign.
- crooked or wonky teeth,
- it includes bite disorders such as overbite, underbite and crossbite
- and it also includes fixing the issues caused by spaces between the teeth or overcrowding of the teeth.
Do I need traditional braces?
Some issues may be complex such as where tooth rotation is required and in this case your dentist may recommend that you use Invisalign in combination with fixed orthodontic braces.
You would begin with fixed braces and continue with Invisalign for a quicker and more convenient treatment than traditional orthodontic treatment alone.
Certain gaps between the teeth may also be too large to fix with Invisalign alone and again this would mean that you may be better suited to other treatment options.
If your issues are minor or moderate then Invisalign is most likely the best choice for you.
A Final Note
Invisible braces are the pretty and practical solution to crooked teeth and will improve your teeth and smile.
Your Dentist or Orthodontist will advise whether you can get away with only using Invisalign or whether you need a combination of traditional braces and invisible braces.
