The Benefits Of Braces Are Clear

The Benefits Of Braces Are Clear

There’s often a misconception that braces are purely for children and teenagers whereas in reality a person of any age can benefit from wearing braces in Clacton to straighten their teeth. The thing is, most adults with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite are understandably reluctant to be seen with a mouth full of wires wrapped around their teeth.

So, what’s the solution? Offering a treatment known as ‘clear orthodontics’ here at Together Dental Clacton we can straighten and align an adult’s teeth using a series of clear, often removable aligners, such as Invisalign.

Most people want their teeth straightened purely for aesthetic reasons but there are in fact many more benefits to be had. So let’s take a look:

1. Invisible – Clear braces are a great option for people who don’t want to feel self conscious wearing traditional metal braces. Consisting of a clear plastic custom aligner they fit discreetly over the teeth, a bit like a bleaching tray, and are virtually invisible.

2. Maintains oral health – One of the problems with fixed braces is the difficulty in cleaning the teeth and gums properly which often means that once a brace is removed, further restoration work may be needed. Removable aligners, such as Invisalign, means that the patient can take out the aligner in order to brush and floss their teeth and then pop it back in. Incorrect brushing and flossing can lead to tooth decay and gum disease which is the primary reason for tooth loss in adults.

3. No career interruptions – Both metal and lingual braces can affect your speech whereas with treatments such as Invisalign, the effects are minimal and soon disappear. You can speak and smile with confidence in the office knowing that no-one except your dentist will even know that you’re undergoing any sort of dental treatment. Best of all, you can even remove your aligners for that deal clinching presentation to prevent anything from distracting you.

4. Eat what you like – Finally, those who wear removable aligners don’t have to give up on their favourite foods whether that be pizza or pecan pie. Most of us take eating for granted but it’s not until you wear a brace that you realise the challenges that you face. With a removable aligner, you discreetly pop it off to eat and then after brushing your teeth, you put it back on again. Simple!
