Having straighter, more regimented teeth has countless benefits. From cosmetic, confidence-boosting properties to multiple health benefits, its worth considering orthodontic treatment.
In Weybridge, orthodontics has come a long way. More modern materials and technologies have made it easier and quicker than ever to achieve a straighter, more perfect smile.
In the past, many people may have been discouraged from undergoing treatment due to the visual aspects of traditional braces, but with new treatments, a lot of these concerns are nothing to worry about.
Traditional braces vs. modern alternatives
Traditional braces are the tried and tested method of teeth straightening, but they have always come with many problems. Many people will associate the use of these types of braces with teeth straightening for kids, but they are also used commonly on adults.
Often, people’s first major concern with ‘train track’ braces is how they will look on the teeth during the treatment. In recent years, however, braces have been offered with clear and tooth-coloured wires and brackets. This makes them a lot less conspicuous.
Another problem is that traditional braces can be quite a hassle to keep clean, especially around mealtimes. There are multiple more modern treatments that are removable, making keeping your teeth safe from tooth decay and harmful bacteria a lot easier.
Alternative treatments for teeth straightening
With modern orthodontics in Weybridge, there are many, more modern alternatives that are offered instead of traditional braces. Some of these treatments are removable appliances, making them much more manageable, and others focus on being completely invisible.
Incognito braces are attached to the back of your teeth, making them almost completely invisible to the naked eye. This type of brace is called a lingual brace because the brackets are placed on the tongue-side of the teeth.
Another treatment growing in popularity is Invisalign. This treatment uses a series of plastic tooth trays to gradually reposition your teeth. A big advantage of this treatment is that it’s virtually invisible and completely removable, making maintaining a high standard of oral hygiene much simpler than with traditional braces.
