"While most people are used to seeing teenagers with braces, adult orthodontics is not quite so often seen. Whether this is because adults have had their braces on as teens or whether it is because their parents could not afford to give them braces when they were younger is a moot point. The fact is that adults can now have their teeth treated to make them straight and attractive as well as healthier.
Many adults have crooked teeth and do not realise that this can cause their teeth to decay faster or to break off as they get older. Teeth that are not straight or properly aligned have pressure on them from a steep bite or other wear and tear and so are more likely to get decays than others. And it has to be said that adults do not like to wear braces because they think they look ugly or they are just embarrassed as their teens are to smile with braces on their teeth.
However, it is possible to get braces these days that are the same colour as your teeth and so they don’t show up when you smile the same way as other metal braces do. In fact, you can sometimes have braces put on the back of your teeth instead of the front so they are completely invisible. These are the braces that usually stay on as a permanent fixture so that the teeth never go back to their old crooked alignment.
Invisalign treatment for adults is the ideal option. It will give you an attractive smile, keep you and your teeth healthy, increase your confidence and make your life more pleasant. For all these benefits it is well worth the effort of having your teeth straightened. After treatment with braces to align your teeth properly you may need to use a teeth retainer so that they will not return to the previous crooked alignment.
The retainers can and should be removed from the mouth for cleaning, when you are playing sport or eating and drinking so it’s not like you have to have them in the whole time. In addition retainers are made of clear material so they are not intrusive.
If you don’t want removable retainers you could have fixed retainers instead. Placed at the back of your teeth they will not be visible either. It is important to have a healthy diet and keep your teeth and your retainers extremely clean, otherwise you could end up with decay or gum disease. Once you have your teeth attended to life will take a turn for the better simply because you will have more confidence and self-esteem."
