If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth then you need to speak to your dentist Sydney and find out what treatments and procedures are available for you. It is never too late to improve the appearance of your smile. Thanks to advances in dental technology there are different treatments available to meet everyone’s individual needs. Many patients did not undergo orthodontic treatment when they were younger and regret their decision as an adult. If this is you, rest assured you are not alone. There are many types of braces available for adults to straighten their teeth; even better, the options are more convenient and discreet than traditional alternatives.
If you are thinking about straightening your teeth then you need to book an appointment with your dentist. They will carry out a full assessment of your dental health to make sure that your teeth are clean and strong and that your gums are healthy. Any signs of tooth decay or gum disease will have to be dealt with. Your dentist will then be able to assess the factors that are affecting the alignment of your teeth and help you decide which type of braces are the best option for you.
Straighten your teeth sooner rather than later
It is better to address the alignment issues of your teeth sooner rather than later. Crooked and wonky teeth are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. They are also more likely to be affected by wear and tear and of course they affect the appearance of your smile. Unfortunately the alignment of your teeth changes further with age which means your teeth could become even more uneven. A neatly aligned smile is attractive and creates a great impression. It is easier to keep clean and less prone to developing excess plaque and tartar, this means less chance of dental health complications such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Speak to your dentist and find out about Invisalign. Invisalign can improve the appearance of your smile and promote better dental health for the future. Invisalign is ideal for adults who want to straighten their teeth without drawing further attention to their mouth. This is because Invisalign works using clear plastic aligners rather than metal wires and brackets. These aligners are made of BPA-free, patented thermoplastic which is flexible and comfortable to wear, but also highly efficient at teeth straightening. You will have to undergo a three-dimensional scan of your mouth to create a digital image of your teeth. The software will show you how your teeth can look following successful Invisalign treatment. The changes in position can then be translated into a sequence of aligners which will push your teeth to create a neatly aligned smile. The aligners can be manufactured for you within a few weeks so that the treatment can begin. Each aligner is worn for one or two weeks and then you move onto the next aligner in the series until you complete the whole set. Within an average of six to twelve months you can achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile. Speak to your dentist today to find out more.
