Unveil the positive effects that clear braces in Birmingham can have on your smile
As time progresses, it is becoming apparent that we are living in an increasingly image conscious world. Over recent years, with the rise in social media usage and the continual documentation of our everyday lives, an increasing number of us are turning to cosmetic dentistry solutions to boost the overall aesthetic appeal of our smiles. Whilst the numbers of patients seeking out dental treatments is rising across all age demographics, there is still a large contingency of people who refrain from seeking out the much needed treatments out of fear of how it will negatively affect their outward appearance. In reality however, there are numerous forms of discreet dental solutions such as clear braces in Birmingham, which allow patients to achieve a straightener, healthier looking smile without affecting their appearance.
Taking the unseen option
Recently, here at St Pauls Square Dental Practice, we’ve seen a significant increase in those opting for discreet orthodontic aligners, such as Invisalign, over conventional methods of orthodontics. One of the main factors in the decision to opt for Invisalign over conventional braces, is the comfort that the Invisalign process affords patients. As the system utilises a removable, plastic retainer rather than fused metal brackets and wires - patients can enjoy all the comforts and conveniences which they enjoyed before seeking orthodontic treatments, such as flossing and eating foods which they would otherwise be unable to using conventional braces. Another persuasive factor in those who seek Invisalign over conventional orthodontics is the obvious discreet nature of the aligner. As each Invisalign retainer is custom moulded around each patient's unique tooth shape, when the retainer is worn it is practically invisible - unlike fused braces, which are often easily detectable within the patient's mouth. In addition to this, the Invisalign method requires far fewer return trips to the dentist than conventional braces would. The process also allows patients to continually witness the positive impact that treatment is having on their smile, as they wear each set of new aligners they are aware that their teeth have moved into their desired position a little further.
Healthier, happier smiles
Another benefit of the Invisalign method is that the risk of tooth decay or periodontal disease (gum disease) is decreased. Having teeth that are misaligned or overcrowded can often lead to a patient's gums becoming red or inflamed. This is referred to as gingivitis, and is generally considered to be an onset sign of periodontal, or gum, disease. As Invisalign negates the need for common orthodontic tools such as fused brackets or wires, the chances of the patient being able to maintain a good level of oral hygiene is boosted greatly, and the risk of food being stuck within their teeth is marginal.
Keeping you smiling
Patients who opt for Invisalign treatment from us here at St Pauls Square Dental Practiceoften find the process to have a massively positive impact on both their oral health and their overall well-being and self-esteem throughout the course of treatment. This is due to the fact that the Invisalign alignment process uniquely provides them with the opportunity to achieve a straightener healthier smile, without having to sacrifice their dental health or outward appearance during the course of treatment.
