If you have crooked or wonky teeth, then you are probably aware by now that there are many different types of braces available at the dentist to help correct the alignment of your teeth.
Straightening your teeth has many advantages so you need to speak to your dentist sooner rather than later and find out what braces are best for you. A popular choice amongst the modern generation is Invisalign Weybridge. Invisalign Weybridge uses clear, thermoplastic aligners to correct misalignment issues of the teeth. This includes crooked, wonky teeth, protruding teeth, overlapping teeth, overcrowded teeth and bite disorders. If you have misalignment issues and are looking for a discreet method of teeth straightening, then Invisalign Weybridge is the ideal solution for you. Speak to your dentist and find out about the many advantages that Invisalign Weybridge can have on your teeth.
Improve the appearance of your smile
To begin with, Invisalign can improve the appearance of your smile. This can improve your self confidence and your self esteem. It can have a positive impact on your overall appearance and it can make you look younger and more attractive. A beautiful smile can encourage you to smile more often and this can also have a positive impact on your mental health and well-being. A beautiful smile encourages others to smile as well so you will bring positivity to those around you too.
Teeth are easier to clean
Another advantage of teeth straightening is that your teeth become much easier to clean than when they were crooked or wonky. When your teeth are crooked or wonky it is difficult for the bristles of your brush to reach all parts of the teeth. It is also difficult to floss between the teeth especially if your teeth are overlapping or overcrowded. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign Weybridge makes it much easier for the brush and floss to remove food particles and bacteria from around, behind and between your teeth. This means that less plaque builds up on your teeth reducing the chance of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
Improve jaw health
As mentioned, Invisalign can be used to correct bite disorders including crossbite, overbite and underbite which are the most common types of bite disorders. Bite disorders are when your jaw does not align properly and can have a range of complications. By using invisalign to correct a bite disorder you can improve your jaw alignment. The muscles in your face are more relaxed and can work properly without straining. It will also reduce clenching as well as teeth grinding which you may not be aware of but are common in patients suffering from bite disorders. This helps prevent early wear and tear, increasing the longevity of your teeth. Correcting a bite disorder also helps reduce any pain in your jaw or the side of your face or head. Overall it will improve your health and well being, allowing you to feel more relaxed as a result of an alleviation of the headaches and pain caused by stress on your jaw.
Protect your mouth, tongue and teeth
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can also help protect them. If you have protruding teeth, crooked teeth or overcrowded teeth, then they are more prone to damage as well as wear and tear. Protruding teeth are more likely to break if you fall forward onto your face, therefore by having your teeth straightened, you are less likely to damage your teeth in an accident or an injury. Crooked teeth are also more likely to cause more cuts and sores inside your mouth. If your teeth do not align properly, and you suffer from a bite disorder, where your jaw is also misaligned then you are more likely to bite the inside of your mouth or bite your tongue, which can be very uncomfortable. This can be avoided after having your teeth straightened.
All this can be achieved by simply straightening your teeth with Invisalign in approximately 12 to 18 months. That is the average treatment time with Invisalign for those with mild, moderate misalignment issues. If you have minor orthodontic issues then the treatment could take less time whereas if your needs are more complex then it can take up to 2 years to straighten your teeth. Once you have achieved a neatly aligned smile, you can speak to your dentist and find out about getting a retainer. With the help of the retainer you can enjoy the benefits and maintain a beautiful smile for the rest of your life.
