There are now many options available as an alternative to metal braces for adults who want to straighten their teeth. Many of these appliances are very discreet, but is it really possible to have orthodontic correction without anyone knowing?
The benefits of Invisalign and other systems of invisible braces include the fact that they are made from clear plastic. They fit comfortably over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position over a period of months. Dental hygiene is also easy to maintain with these appliances, because you just take them out to clean and to brush your teeth.
PDC Dental in Barnsley has carried out many such treatments with Invisalign invisible braces, and a large number of patients comment upon how discreet the treatment is, as well as how little impact the process has on day-to-day life.
The problem with metal braces is that they are very obvious indeed, and everyone you meet will know you are undergoing treatment, whether you want them to or not. With removable invisible braces, whilst your nearest and dearest will probably know you are having treatment because they are likely to see you taking your appliance out to eat, drink, or clean, otherwise nobody needs to know.
Because these braces fit snugly over your teeth, and because they are made out of clear plastic, they are completely unnoticeable in day-to-day life. Your colleagues, even your friends, don’t need to know you are having teeth straightening treatment unless you choose to tell them – although you will likely get some positive comments on your beautiful new smile once treatment is complete.
It pays to straighten your teeth for many reasons, and not all of them are aesthetic. Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is easier when they are in better alignment – so long as you brush and floss regularly.
Good dental hygiene prevents your chances of developing both gum disease and tooth decay, which are the two leading causes of tooth loss. Therefore, choosing invisible braces to straighten your teeth can be a secret, convenient way to boost your health as well as your smile.
