With the advancements in orthodontics over the past couple of decades, it’s never been easier to have your teeth straightened and we often hear from patients that they regret not doing it sooner. Take a look at the reasons why you shouldn’t delay seeking treatment.
The brace types of today are versatile
Brace types have undergone quite an evolution since the metal-clad designs of the past. It is now possible to have removable braces that offer a discreet aesthetic and allow you to eat what you want. These are known as Invisalign and have benefited over 5 million patients worldwide. If you’re keen for your smile to remain completely aesthetically unaltered during the treatment period, it is also now possible to have lingual braces that sit on the tongue side of the teeth. Park Lane use Incognito lingual braces, a market leader in lingual technology.
It’ll be easier to clean your teeth
Misaligned, crowded, and crooked teeth can make it challenging to brush and floss as unnatural gaps are created as a result. When it then comes to brushing it can be difficult to reach particular areas, which in turn affects your oral hygiene, leaving you susceptible to tenacious staining and even gum disease.
You’ll get your confidence back
Orthodontic complications can often leave your smile looking not quite how you might like it, affecting your confidence and desire to smile. This can make personal and working relationships a challenge. You may find the biggest change post-treatment is the change in your day-to-day happiness and wellbeing.
You can undergo short-term treatment to deal with aesthetic issues
Many people hear the word ‘braces’ and immediately associate them with a long treatment period. Clear fixed braces can be used to tackle less complex issues in as little as 6 months and keep your smile looking great throughout.
