Confronting your crooked teeth
When confronted with the annoyance of crooked or misaligned teeth, sometimes the thought of wearing unsightly metal braces is even more unappealing. If you feel like you have lost the confidence to laugh and smile in public, you don’t have to let it carry on by ignoring the solutions. Having wonky teeth can have a negative impact on both your self-esteem and oral health. By going on without treatment, there is a chance that complications such as tooth decay and gum disease can occur.
If you are seeking teeth-straightening treatments that are a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal tracks, then it might be worth considering invisible braces in Berkshire. These invisible braces can be just as effective, and in some cases, take less time than traditional braces.
Tackling the traditional tracks
At Old Windsor Dental Practice, one of the discreet teeth-straightening treatments we offer is Invisalign. This is a treatment which involves a series of clear aligners that are custom made to shift your teeth to their desired positions over time. In using 3D advanced technology, we are able to project the images of your future teeth so that you can see your perfect smile before treatment begins. These aligners serve as a flexible alternative to fixed braces and they are ideal for adults who wish to be subtle about their treatment. Invisalign is convenient, as you can remove the aligner before you eat, drink or brush your teeth. For them to be effective, the aligners must be worn at all other times.
Just when you think that one invisible alternative to traditional braces was enough, there is another flexible treatment ready and waiting to give you your desired smile. Lingual braces are wires that arc around the backs of the teeth, so they are actually unseen by anyone during your treatment. They work to straighten your teeth over time, meaning you can be confident in your journey towards your straight and happy grin.
Although treatment can cause a little discomfort, it will only be temporary. You can find comfort in knowing that you are on your way to showing a smile you aren’t afraid of, one that restores your self-esteem.
