When you meet someone for the first time, you make a lot of quick judgments about them based on what you notice about them visually. Are they friendly? Are they happy? Are they trustworthy? All of this you infer just from looking at their smile.
You pick up this kind of visual information almost subconsciously, within the first few seconds of meeting them for the first time. These judgements can make or break hopes and dreams. When people don’t smile, we may think they are miserable or unfriendly, whereas in fact they may not be smiling because they are ashamed of their teeth. Sound familiar? If you are that unsmiling person, goodness knows how many new friends and life opportunities your wonky teeth are making you miss out on.
However, at The Dental Surgery Burnham, we have an alternative to braces in Buckinghamshire that can make sure your smile never again forces you to miss out on life’s opportunities.
Like braces, but not actually braces, in Buckinghamshire, Invisalign is a revolutionary straightening system that needs no brackets, bands or wires. Instead of the usual braces equipment, Invisalign uses clear resin trays that resemble mouth guards to move your teeth into alignment.
This method of teeth straightening has several advantages over the more well-known wire and bracket systems. Firstly, many adults associate ‘train track’ braces with being a teenager, and have no wish to suffer the embarrassment of wearing such equipment beyond their teenage years or early 20s.
Secondly, the clear plastic trays fit so snugly over the teeth that they almost cannot be seen at all, and do not interfere with speech.
Thirdly, the aligners are removable, making brushing and flossing easy, allowing you to eat whatever you like. Also, you can remove the tray for a few hours for ultra-important business or social events (although do not make a habit of this).
And finally, Invisalign treatments only take a few months instead of years, and are a more affordable option.
Please note, this system of braces in Buckinghamshire is for people whose orthodontic needs are limited to realigning their teeth, and is not suitable for serious bite correction orthodontics.
