There are a number of problems that can lead to misaligned teeth, such as overcrowding, wide spacing, crossbites, overbites and underbites. These issues, also known as malocclusions, can cause your teeth to become crooked and may also lead to other dental problems.
As experts in cosmetic dentistry treatments, the team at Museum Dental Suites can provide a range of Invisible braces treatments to help correct a variety of dental alignment problems and our London-based team will work with you to provide a tailored treatment plan those suites your specific needs.
For most people, having their teeth straightened with invisible braces is an aesthetic choice. Perfectly aligned teeth are a major part of having a beautiful smile – and we all know how important first impressions and a high level of self confidence can be.
However, it’s important to note that having perfectly straight teeth isn’t just about having gorgeous grin. Proper tooth alignment can also contribute to improved dental hygiene. With straight teeth, it will be easier to keep your teeth clean and you’ll be less likely to experience plaque and tartar build-up. Straight teeth can also make it easier for your dentist to spot the early signs of tooth decay.
Over time, malocclusion can gradually become worse, causing them to become more worn down or susceptible to decay.
What’s more, straight teeth can also help to improve your digestion – after all, chewing is the first step in processing the foods you eat and properly aligned teeth can help to ensure that you are biting and chewing your food effectively.
In the past, the only way to improve your tooth alignment was to spend months, or even years, with metal braces attached to your teeth. While the long-term outcome was certainly worth the temporary unpleasantness of the devices, many people decided that the embarrassment and discomfort wasn’t worth the trouble.
Luckily, improvements in dentistry technology mean that alternative options are now available that is barely noticeable, if not completely invisible.
Products like the Invisalign systems can correct malocclusion quickly and effectively, without having large pieces of metal in your mouth, and even dental retainers can be provided in invisible designs.
The length of time that you’ll need to use these products will depend on how much work needs to be done to straighten your teeth. Since the devices can be removed, you don’t have to give up foods like apples and sticky sweets during your treatment and you’ll be able to easily maintain your dental hygiene, as you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth without any problems.
