Back in the day, teeth straightening used to be an activity associated with children and teenagers. Adults who did not receive treatment with braces as children or experienced relapse, were forced to consider metal braces when it came to experiencing a straighter smile. Today, all that is changed and adults can achieve an attractive smile without being compelled to wear brackets and wires.
A healthy, straight and attractive smile is not only associated with aesthetics. Straight teeth prevent plaque, promote good oral hygiene and protect the jawbone. Discreet braces in North London, contribute to self-esteem and a positive body image, both of which are important qualities for patients of all ages. These braces, including Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, are specifically made for patients whose permanent teeth have erupted. They are available through selected dental practices, including Denchic Dental Spa. In some cases, treatment is accompanied by complimentary teeth whitening, providing a complete aesthetic experience.
Improved Oral Hygiene
Patients with crooked and misaligned teeth are more likely to develop plaque due to the many crevices and hard-to-reach spots in their mouth. These spots are hard to brush properly, giving bacteria and plaque time to develop and increasing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Just like regular metal braces, adult braces in North London address these issues, enabling patients to take good care of their teeth between dental visits.
Saving Money in The Long Run
Misaligned teeth can cause many complex dental problems, therefore undergoing teeth straightening with discreet braces in North London is cost-effective in the long run. The added cost of gum disease, tooth decay, dental implants and other complex dental solutions is worth considering when deciding whether to have braces. Moreover, a misaligned bite can also cause abnormal wear on tooth surfaces, pressure and pain on the jaw joints, tooth cracks and chips as well as tooth loss.
Aesthetics and Performance
Adults who are conscious about their smile will find that discreet braces such as Invisalign aligners and Six Month Smiles are barely noticeable. As well as having teeth that look beautiful, these treatments improve chewing efficiency and bite performance, contributing to improved dental health.
