Many people feel very self-conscious about their teeth.
It is known that society favours those with straight teeth, with people forming opinions about a person’s attractiveness and health simply by looking at their teeth. This can have an effect on a person’s ability to interact in social and business situations, not only due to other’s perceptions but their own self-esteem regarding their teeth as well.
It is not only a cosmetic consideration, however. Straighter teeth are able to be kept cleaner
due to the fact that there are less hard to reach places when the teeth are aligned neatly next to each other.
This means that there is less chance for plaque, disease, and decay if a person upholds an appropriate standard of oral hygiene.
Orthodontics in Navan provide people with the opportunity to have the straight teeth that they wish for. It is commonly seen for teeth aligning systems to be a rite of passage for young adults, however, more and more adults are taking advantage of the technology and devices that are becoming available for them to use to quickly and easily straighten their teeth.
What are some of these devices?
The Inman aligner is an effective and useful brace that can straighten crooked front teeth in as little as 6 to18 weeks.
It is becoming more popular as it has gained some international attention due to the advantages that it holds over the more traditional fixed braces.
Clear braces are a discreet and easy way for adults to straighten their teeth without needing to alter their lifestyle in any way.
Another system, 6 Month Smiles, allows adults to experience the best of traditional brace systems whilst conveniently modifying the treatment and the materials used to suit the modern lifestyle of the working and busy person.
A Dentist will provide their patients with the information that they need so that they can choose which system will be the best choice for them.
After an initial consultation in which the dentist will thoroughly inspect the teeth, patients can begin their journey to the teeth they have always dreamed of having.
Who are these treatments for?
If a person is unhappy with the appearance of their smile or wants to straighten their teeth for the overall improvement of their oral health, then they are warmly invited to visit their Dentist to discuss the options that are available to them.
Usually, one treatment will better suit a patient’s specific needs than another and it is advantageous that there are a few different styles available that allow for flexibility in the treatment.
There may be a chance that the patient can choose between treatments. In this case, a dentist can recommend what they believe to be more advantageous but will offer information regarding the advantages and potential risks associated with each treatment device.
This treatment is one of the most life-changing experiences that someone can give themselves and many patients comment that they only wish they had done it sooner.
