Living with crooked, protruding, or misaligned teeth isn’t easy at any age but when you’re an adult the thought of undergoing orthodontic treatment can be somewhat daunting. Fortunately, with modern day orthodontics, straightening your teeth and getting the smile you’ve always longed for is far easier than you might think.
Orthodontics or teeth straightening has come a long way in recent years and to give you a better understanding of what we mean, we’ve put together an infographic which compares two very different brace systems and how they could benefit you. So why not scroll down to learn more.
Here at Confidental Clinic adult orthodontics is on the rise. No longer the preserve of children and teens, modern orthodontics offers a wide choice of brace systems which are more discreet, comfortable, speedy, and efficient than ever before. So if you’ve got a picture of a mouthful of metal in your head, you can disregard that right now! In fact, whatever your dental situation, your lifestyle, and your budget, there’s sure to be a brace system that is perfectly suited to you.
So why straighten your teeth?
Aside from the obvious aesthetic benefits there are many other reasons to consider orthodontic treatments. For a start your oral health will be improved as straight teeth are much easier to brush and floss than teeth which are misaligned. Correcting an over or under bite will help you chew your food more easily and will also prevent excessive wear and tear on certain teeth; and just imagine having the confidence to smile freely! Finally, orthodontics is often far cheaper than people imagine, and because we offer flexible payment options, you can even spread the cost over several months to ease your budget.
At Confidental Clinic we’re pleased to be able to offer our patients a wide choice of the most modern brace systems which include:
Still not convinced?
Many adults refrain from having braces because they feel self conscious about wearing them and because of the time factor involved. The good news is that most of today’s braces are super discreet and include such things as transparent brackets and clear wires.
Some, such as lingual braces have the brackets and wires fixed to the inside of the teeth, so they don’t show when you smile or speak; and another other system, Invisalign, isn’t strictly speaking a brace at all. Instead it’s a series of clear gum shields that are worn over the teeth and are virtually invisible. What’s more systems such as Invisalign and the Inman Aligner are even designed to be removable so you can brush your teeth with ease. Depending upon the severity of your dental problem, treatment times vary from as little as 3 months to 3 years.
Cosmetic fixed braces, such as Six Month Smiles, Fast Braces, and Quick Straight Teeth, focus their attention on moving just the front teeth which show when you smile, and are more suited to those people with less complex dental conditions such as gapped or overlapping teeth. Some of these systems take weeks rather than months to complete and are a perfect choice for people who have a special occasion that they want to look their best for, such as a graduation or a wedding.
