Beautiful, straight teeth can completely change your appearance. For many people, it gives them a friendlier, more approachable disposition. Straight teeth can also give you a more youthful appearance and encourage you to smile with confidence and ease.
Some people, however, do not develop straight teeth. While mildly crooked teeth often require no treatment beyond some minor cosmetic adjustments, very crooked teeth can have a major impact on your life.
Luckily, crooked teeth can be treated. There are a number of options available, including invisible braces such as Invisalign. Here at Saving Faces, we offer invisible braces to all our Liverpool patients.
We recommend Invisalign for a number of reasons:
It is a discreet option
One of the primary reasons we recommend Invisalign to our patients is that it is one of the most discreet options available. Invisalign trays are completely clear and moulded to fit your natural teeth.
Most people will not notice that you are wearing any aligners at all because it blends in and allows your natural teeth to show through.
It is one of the quickest treatment options
Invisalign is one of the quickest treatment options because it takes less time than traditional wire braces to get results. It uses a series of multiple aligners that gently straighten the teeth over several weeks.
Many people complete the treatment within 9 to 15months, depending on their needs. You will likely need between 18 to 30 aligners for the duration of your treatment.
It may be easier for you to maintain a good oral hygiene routine
Invisalign braces are removable — you can remove the braces whenever you need to brush or floss your teeth. Unlike wire braces, which require additional upkeep, you can brush and floss your teeth as normal with Invisalign.
Once your teeth have been straightened, it also lessens the chances of food being stuck between your teeth.
It is easier to chew and to bite
Invisalign also makes it easier to chew and to bite your food. You can remove the aligners while eating and then replace them when you are done.
Once you finish your treatment, straight teeth will also make it easier to bite and to chew — perfectly aligned teeth have a better bite and are more efficient than crooked teeth when taking a bite out of your food.
It may improve your speech
For some people, finishing their Invisalign treatment helps in improving their speech.
Invisalign primarily targets the front teeth, which play the biggest role in speech and pronunciation. Some people may have a slight lisp or produce a whistling sound while they are talking due to crooked front teeth. Invisalign can help minimise this effect by aligning the teeth.
It simply looks good
Invisalign, and the perfectly straightened teeth that you get after you finish the treatment simply look good.
You can smile and speak with confidence, knowing that you have teeth you are proud to show off.
