Are you an adult who wishes they had undertaken those braces as a child? Do your misaligned teeth make you feel self-conscious about smiling or taking photos?
You are not alone!
There is an idea, in relation to realigning teeth, that all orthodontic treatment must be completed when you are a child. While there are many benefits to having braces fitted at a young age due to mobility of the teeth, thanks to modern advances in dentistry, this is no longer a rule set in stone.
At Parbold Dental Practice, our dentists can offer adult patients a range of orthodontic treatments to help you get that straighter smile you have always wanted. Everything from traditional aligners to clear braces in Ormskirk, whatever you need from your realignment, we have a brace to deliver it!
But what are some of the benefits of the more popular clear braces in Ormskirk? Read on to find out!
This benefit is in the name of the braces!
Our clear braces in Ormskirk are, well, clear, offering any wearer a more discreet alternative to traditional metal aligners.
More suitable for adults and teenagers, these aligners fit snugly over the teeth and with no visible metal components, they are invisible to the naked eye.
Another advantage of these braces? They are suited to almost every lifestyle!
As most of our invisible braces are removable, you will be able to take them out when you are eating, drinking or brushing your teeth, you can even remove them before playing sports if you wish!
While our dental team will provide you with a time frame within which to wear them each day, as long as this is adhered to, you will still reap the benefits of these braces, while having the option to remove them too! Also, while you will be required to attend check-ups with our team to monitor the progress of your realignment, these appointments will not be inconvenient for work or other commitments. A check-up once every six weeks is standard and at Parbold Dental, our appointment times include weekends and evenings. Now that’s convenient!
Accelerated treatment time
Many adults are wary of adult orthodontic treatments due to concerns over the treatment time involved.
However, unlike traditional braces, invisible aligners offer patients accelerated treatment. On average, many of those who undertake invisible braces have their new smile completed in around 6 months, which, compared to the 24 months of traditional braces, is a very small time frame.
Nobody wants to undertake a treatment that is uncomfortable.
While there may be some adjustment time related to the invisible brace in your mouth, these aligners are comfortable to wear. With no protruding metal and fitted to your unique mouth shape, they will fit like a glove!
Better dental hygiene
Removable braces are better for both your lifestyle and maintaining your oral health.
As there are no fitted metal attachments for plaque and bacteria to cling to, your teeth and gums will remain healthy throughout the treatment.
