Many adults shudder at the thought of braces; they remember back in school, that one child who wore orthodontic braces, the issues they had with eating their favourite foods and all of the appointments they had to go to. Adults in the modern world do not have time for that!
This is before we consider the visual impact. As useful as orthodontic braces are for correcting misaligned teeth, they are far from discreet and with many adults having careers that are based on appearance and looking professional, they are simply not a feasible option.
If you have been told you need braces to correct a minor misalignment, our team at Garden View Dental Care can offer you clear braces in Beaconsfield. This option for orthodontic correction is more discreet, is less time consuming and is easier to maintain.
Here are some of the things you will need to know before undergoing treatment with clear braces in Beaconsfield.
They are removable
The technology behind the clear braces in Beaconsfield is extremely sophisticated, allowing you to gain straighter teeth while also being removable.
One brand of clear brace we can offer at Garden View Dental Care is the Six Months Smile, which works promptly and successfully, whilst also being minimalist enough to remove when you are eating, drinking or brushing your teeth.
They are more comfortable
Orthodontic braces can be quite uncomfortable for wearers, they often poke at the inner cheeks while also causing discomfort when they are tightened.
Due to the way clear braces are designed, they do not use the pulling technique that orthodontic braces do, and gently push your teeth into their new position, minimising the discomfort and are equally effectual.
They work quickly
As they are designed to straighten mild to moderate misalignments, clear braces work significantly faster than orthodontic ones.
Obviously, the Six Months Smile aligner works in the time it says on the tin, so to speak, with many options lasting less than six months. Another option, like the Invisalign aligner, has an average treatment time of twelve months.
They have no negative impact on lifestyle
Lifestyle is important to everyone. With clear braces, you can remove them to eat hard foods that you would not be able to consume with orthodontic braces. As they are removable, they will not impact on any of your eating or drinking habits, but to gain the full benefit of the treatment, you must wear them for between sixteen to twenty hours a day.
They do not dent your confidence
Orthodontic braces can make even the most confident person feel insecure about their smile. Despite their obvious benefits, they are noticeable and cannot be made any more discreet.
Clear braces are made from a transparent, flexible plastic, moulded to fit over your teeth perfectly, allowing you to smile, talk and laugh without drawing unwanted attention to your mouth; making them perfect for busy lifestyles.
