You are not alone if you want to change your smile in your adult years, it’s been reported 75% of orthodontists have seen an increase in adult patients wanting to correct their smiles.
And although it’s commonplace for young teens to have their smiles realigned with the use of metal, ceramic or invisible braces, some of them missed the moment in their teenage years to tackle the parts of their smile they wanted to change.
Alternatively, maybe they did have treatment, but just stopped wearing their retainers, or maybe their wisdom teeth pushed their perfect smile back out of alignment. Whatever the reason, if you are such a person, clear braces could be a practical solution.
Clear braces can treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, an open bite, crowded teeth, and general tooth misalignment.
Here are all the reasons you should take the plunge as an adult and get your Invisalign in Maidstone smile.
What are the benefits of teeth straightening?
The straighter your teeth are, the healthier your teeth and gums will be. When teeth are straight there is less space for plaque to build up and an overcrowded bite can make it harder to floss between teeth, which can lead to gum disease.
Straighter teeth can lead to easier digestion. Fully aligned teeth can mean better chewing, which in turn can lead to improved digestion, even people who make healthy food choices can struggle with digestive issues if they aren’t correctly chewing their food.
If you were in an accident, you are less likely to break or chip your enamel if you don’t have protruding teeth and a straighter smile could improve your confidence, as it’s been proven people who feel self-conscious about their teeth are less likely to smile. Smiling is an important part of creating your own happiness from the outside in.
But will braces disrupt my life as an adult?
Aligners are made from SmartTrack which means they are more comfortable to wear and are easy to take off. They are as close to invisible as can be and so are very discreet, meaning you can relax in the knowledge that you won’t need to worry about feeling uncomfortable around friends, family, or work colleagues.
When you decide to level up your already lovely smile, the discreet aligner will be virtually impossible for those around you to see.
It’s an easy process
You might be worried that straightening your teeth will become an added stress or time-consuming in your already busy life, but that’s not the case with clear braces.
On your first appointment with your dentist, they will take a selection of 3D images of your teeth. They use advanced scanning, meaning they have 10 times fewer rejections than from physical impressions, so you won’t have multiple trips to the dentist before the process starts.
Treatment plans are used to tackle both minor and more complicated misalignments and some people begin to notice changes within the first three months. More complicated cases might take a little longer, but that perfect smile will always be worth waiting a little longer for.
