It is common to panic slightly when you are told you by your dentist you need braces, especially if you are an adult; it conjures up images of socially awkward teenagers with rubber bands on their teeth, which was not a good look then and certainly wouldn’t be a good look now!
Depending on your reason for needing braces in Kings Hill, a member of our dental team at One Smile Oral Care may not need to fit you with a traditional aligner and can provide you with a more modern alternative.
At One Smile Oral Care, we can offer our patients a wide range of braces in Kings Hill to choose from, that are typically more discreet and lifestyle friendly than traditional metal-based aligners.
Before you decide against proceeding with orthodontic treatments, here are 5 reasons to reconsider your position.
Treatments are faster
While this depends on your individual clinical situation, many of the braces in Kings Hill that we offer to our adult patients have an accelerated treatment time.
Aligners designed to straighten mild to moderately misaligned teeth can give you that straighter smile in under 9 months, with some brands boasting a complete transformation in 6! Now that is fast!
The future of aligners is invisible.
If you are deemed suitable by a member of our team, then you will reap the benefits of wearing an invisible aligner, which combines a more personalised approach to straightening your teeth with the cosmetic benefit of being, well, invisible.
Traditional aligners required additional trips to the dentist and hygienist to ensure that your teeth were clean and plaque free.
Modern aligners, however, are often removable and so, you can take them out when eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. There is also no fear of damaging them, as many are made from a flexible plastic, which is smooth against your inner cheeks, with no bulky metal.
If you have a modern aligner, you will usually be advised to wear it for 22 hours a day. This may seem worrisome as many people dislike the idea of sleeping in a removable dental piece.
As most modern-day aligners are made from a malleable, smooth plastic and are customised to fit over your teeth, you will experience higher levels of comfort while wearing them. Sleeping and other everyday activities are easier; you will forget you are wearing them!
Large, traditional aligners are noticeable. Modern, sleek aligners are designed to be functional and aesthetically pleasing, meaning that only a few choice people will notice you are wearing them.
The minimalistic and discreet design will allow you to go about your day with confidence that you are getting straighter teeth, without attracting unwanted attention.
Remember, a member of our dental team has to conclude that you are suitable for a more modern aligner, so book your orthodontic appointment with One Smile Oral Care today!
