Having crooked teeth can be a highly embarrassing, not to mention unpleasant experience. It can make you feel self-conscious when you smile and can also affect your day-to-day eating experiences as your bite can be seriously affected by things like missing teeth.
Therefore, in today’s blog, we thought we would devote some time to talking about crooked teeth and of course the many treatments available to eradicate the problem.
Orthodontics is essentially the main practice for correcting crooked teeth but also ‘overcrowding’ in the mouth, the closing of gaps between your teeth and very importantly, the correcting of your bite.
As a popular and actually very advanced treatment, the use of orthodontic braces, which essentially move your teeth in to the right positions and alignment can solve a lot of issues. The biggest choice usually comes from the type of braces used. Whether they are invisible braces or aligners is all down to the very best way to treat your crooked teeth and lifestyle.
There are many types of braces that can provide a relatively quick solution to fixing crooked teeth, which include;
- Hidden braces
- Clear braces
- Inman Aligners (this option can straighten crooked front teeth in six to eighteen weeks)
- Clear Aligners
- Six months orthodontics
- Removable aligners
- Conventional braces
For both children and adults, orthodontic treatments can of course improve smiles and give a better level of self-confidence but we believe they should also promote better oral health.
At Advanced Dentistry we focus not only on fixing your crooked teeth but ensure that your treatment takes into account your overall oral health, including the facilitation of better brushing and flossing. This ensures a better future for your teeth and gums and of course longevity in terms of your treatment and its success.
For the most part, it may be surprising to know that the overall look and health of your crooked teeth are fixable without the need for veneers. Orthodontics is considered a great option as it minimises the need for changes to your healthy / existing teeth.
Orthodontic treatments usually means that fixed braces are used to move your crooked teeth to better, more aesthetically pleasing positions with the minimum of fuss. However, there are a number of options depending on your own personal circumstances, so you can be certain that if you want your crooked teeth fixed, we will find the very best way of doing it.
