Straighter teeth can enhance your smile and improve your dental health. Whether you are a child, teenager or adult, braces today come in a variety of forms that can effectively straighten your teeth.
At Enhancedental in Leeds, a range of removable and fixed braces are provided by a team of highly trained dentists. With their expertise and support, you can look forward to straighter teeth and all the benefits that this brings.
Improving your quality of life
When you smile, your teeth are on display for all to see. Crooked, crowded or gappy teeth can bring about a level of self-consciousness that leaves you hesitant to smile. This is why straighter teeth can have a significant impact on your confidence and self-esteem.
There are also health benefits to be gained from straighter teeth, which are easier to clean than crooked teeth. This means you are likely to experience less bacterial build-up and as a result reduce your chances of tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease in particular has been linked to increased chances of stroke, diabetes and heart disease.
What are your options for teeth straightening?
Fixed metal braces are a tried and tested means to straighten teeth. However, there are now many more options to explore. Fixed braces also come as clear brackets with tooth-coloured wires, for a less conspicuous look. Lingual braces are attached to the backs of your teeth, making them completely hidden from view.
When it comes to removable solutions, Invisalign and the Inman aligner are two tried and tested ways to effectively straighten teeth. For speedy results targeting the front teeth, the Inman clear aligner can resolve mild crowding or misalignments. Results can be achieved within six to 18 weeks.
Invisalign technology is one of the most discreet teeth straightening solutions around. These clear acrylic moulds are custom made to fit around your teeth and are hard to spot with the untrained eye.
The state of your teeth will determine which treatment is most suitable for your individual case. More severe cases of crowding or misalignments may need longer or more involved treatments. A consultation with a dentist is the easiest way to find out which treatments could work for you.
