Have you ever felt self-conscious about your looks? Most people have. But have you ever felt self-conscious specifically about your smile? Do you try not smile in photos? When you meet new people, do you worry that they are staring at your mouth, checking out your teeth? You don't have to keep living this way. Straighter teeth can make you more confident, and your first consultation is only a phone call away.
You may decide braces aren't for you, but you won't know until you get more information. You might not be a good candidate for Invisalign, but only talking to an orthodontist will tell you for sure. What you do know is that you deserve to be happy with your teeth. We all deserve to be happy with our teeth.
There are many techniques that orthodontists can use to straighten your teeth. Braces and Invisalign are just two of the most common methods used to straighten teeth. And straighter teeth are more than just a question of improved physical appearance, although that's certainly a factor too. Straight teeth improve the function of the teeth by correcting problems with the bite.
While traditional braces use metal wires and brackets to achieve ideal positioning of the teeth, Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic trays as a means of moving the teeth into a better position, a straighter position. Invisalign is a good option for situations when correcting the positioning of the teeth is not overly complicated. When you use Invisalign, you'll wear a set of plastic trays custom made just to fit your teeth. These trays should be worn 24 hour a day, seven days a week, with a change of trays every two weeks. One of the many benefits of Invisalign trays for aligning the teeth is that they are virtually invisible. Nobody will even need to know you are wearing an orthodontic device.
Traditional braces, on the other hand, are a better alternative for more complex orthodontic work. They are typically made of either metal or resin brackets affixed to the teeth. These brackets are attached to a wire which is adjusted periodically by a specialist, an orthodontist. By adjusting the wire, the orthodontist can, over time, change the positioning of the teeth. Braces work well for correcting crooked teeth or closing gaps in the teeth.
While braces and Invisalign and even retainers are a big commitment, you don't have to decide anything today. But certainly getting more information can only help. If you book a consultation, you have nothing to lose except your crooked teeth. And you have so much to gain: your smile, your self-confidence, your life. Taking the first step towards improving your smile can be taking the first step towards improving your life. Be the best you that you can be, starting with your smile.
