Hiding your smile because of uneven teeth? Not anymore. A full smile is the most beautiful smile. People sometimes don’t consider orthodontics in adult age. They feel uncomfortable with the idea of going out with a “metal mouth”. But, there are already different types of orthodontic treatments available today. One of these is the Invisalign technology which has been developed and being widely practiced around the world.
I’ll give you a few good reasons why you should consider taking advantage of orthodontic services in Gold Coast regardless of your age. Here are two of the major reasons:
Straight Teeth: Get your dream smile with straight and clean teeth. All your life, the crooked teeth has made it difficult for you to thoroughly floss, brush and rinse. Now, deep cleaning your teeth each day can be done with ease. You will no longer have any problems in cleaning all those hard to reach areas.
Plenty of Options: If you’re hesitant or afraid of having a brace, there are other options available. You can try Invisalign or other removable options. When it comes to braces, the options available today are ceramic or clear braces, metal braces, lingual braces and also clear aligners.
Gain your confidence again with a bigger and better smile. In some cases, the whole face looks awkward; but once you have gone through the right orthodontic treatment, it goes well. Take note that there are some instructions that you need to follow if you are having the treatment. Your dentist will tell you about it.
It lasts depending upon your condition: It is a time consuming treatment, it takes about 6 months to 2 years depending upon your condition. So, you need to have some patience.
It is not a one-time process: You need to visit your dentist every week or depending on what is required to check the condition or in most cases, tighten the braces or re-adjust it. In case of metal braces, the wire needs to be changed every second week.
You may need to visit the dentist: Sometimes, the wire is not adjusted and it may hurt you. You need to apply the wax provided by the dentist and visit our dental practice as soon as possible or you may get your gums or tongue hurt.
There is a special brush you need to use: You need to brush your teeth after eating anything. The braces need to be clean. There is a special brush that is provided during orthodontics treatment that is round in shape and lighter to avoid any damage to the braces.
Removing teeth is also part of the treatment: Sometimes, removing teeth is also a part of treatment to adjust the jaw in the right angle and also to make some space for the other teeth to move.
In the beginning, it may be uncomfortable and you feel awkward about it, but the end result is fruitful knowing that you get that perfect smile again. The aligners and the braces are made as per the shape of your jaw; it is modelled especially for you. The cost of the treatment is divided on the number of visits so it doesn’t feel too expensive. So, stop hiding your smile and consider orthodontics.
