With Invisible Braces You Have Nothing To Lose
Many people see braces as something you get as a teenager. As an adult the idea of wearing braces is a nightmare. For some they’d rather live with misaligned teeth or an overbite than deal with the stigma of braces. However, an increasing number of adults are in need of braces because they did not have these problems fixed during their late childhood and teen years. However, these adults are not opting for the metal braces that many adults dread, instead they have discovered invisible braces/invisalign. Gold Coast orthodontist can provide you the benefit of braces without the stigma and discomfort of traditional braces.
The suitable alternative
If braces are recommended by your orthodontist, ask if invisible braces are an option. These braces are not worn on the front of your teeth. Instead, they are placed on the back of the teeth making them appear invisible to anyone looking at you. Because braces are customizable they will fit perfectly in your mouth, following the contour of your teeth, which will deliver comfort and in time that perfect smile you want.
How are they made?
To get invisible braces, you need to consult with your orthodontist. They will determine if braces are needed. They will take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to the laboratory with the orthodontist’s prescription. The lab will make models of the impression. These are then scanned into a computer. Using 3-D imaging technology the braces are created. The brackets and wires are customized based on the model of your teeth and the prescription from the orthodontist. Braces can take approximately five to six weeks to complete, based on the individual lab facility filling the order.
After the braces are ready, the orthodontist will schedule appointment for bonding which takes several hours. Doing this ensures you will not need constant adjustments which means you will have fewer visits to the orthodontists office while receiving treatment.
Traditional braces are said to cause pain, discomfort, injuries, tooth decay, plaque build up, tooth breakage, mouth sores or injuries, tooth discoloration and/or difficulty eating. Invisible braces eliminates most of these problems. Instead of being made from sharp metal, these braces are made of a smooth plastic. The material is comfortable for the wearer and does not irritate the gums or cheeks or damage the teeth.
Invisible braces also eliminate the personal sacrifices you may need to make if you choose to wear traditional braces. For example you don’t have to give up eating chips, bagels, pizza crust, popcorn, hard crusted bread, pretzels, buts, carrots, corn on the cob, apples and the many other forbidden foods that can get stuck in regular braces. With invisible braces you are also able to brush and floss normally. This can improve your periodontal health. The main benefit of these hidden braces are that you only need to visit your orthodontist every four to six weeks.
Boost your confidence
If your profession puts you in front of a lot of people, such as a sales person or any professional career, a bad overbite, misaligned teeth or gaps can crush your self-confidence over time if you feel self-conscious about the way you look. Invisible braces can fix your teeth within a couple of months. You don’t have to deal with the embarrassment of misaligned teeth or ugly metal braces. You’ll be able to smile and know that you have a great smile and all it takes is a visit to the orthodontist.
