Could Your Smile Benefit From Adult Braces?
Would you like to straighten your teeth? Modern braces can fix all types of tooth alignment dilemmas. Overbite? Gap between your two front teeth? Crowded teeth?
Now, men and women of any age can have a fantastic smile that looks as young as they feel. Let’s consider some orthodontic options.
Traditional braces have brackets and an archwire. The brackets are mounted to the teeth and the archwire is attached to the brackets. With self-ligating braces, the archwire is connected to the brackets with a spring clip. This replaces the plastic color band necessary with conventional metal braces.
Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal or ceramic brackets. With Invisalign aligners, you switch aligners every couple of weeks as your teeth gently shift into place.
How can straightening teeth improve your life?
We all know that a beautiful smile improves one’s appearance. Everyone wants to look better. However, the benefits aren’t purely aesthetic.
- Straight teeth can restrict decay
- If teeth are aligned correctly, you are less likely to snore
- Decreases the risk of periodontitis (advanced gum disease),
- Straightening teeth can help you eat a healthier diet
Regardless of your age, it is not too late to enhance your smile–even if you have some missing teeth. Braces combined with dental implant procedures can transform a smile.
