Straighten Teeth at Clearwater Dental Office With Adult Orthodontic Options
The smile is the first thing you’ll notice about someone when you meet them. You notice the size of the teeth, color, and how straight the teeth are. A study by the research company Kelton Global found that the smile is more important to making a great first impression than your hair or the clothes you wear. Even more, the study found that people often assume people with great smile are more successful or even more intelligent.
I’m not here to claim cosmetic dentistry will boost your IQ — though I think it is wise to give yourself a beautiful smile — I simply want to tell you about the power of a great smile. Luckily, achieve a great smile is easier than ever. At Clearwater Dental Associates, some of our services can be completed in one visit, and we implement the most subtle and comfortable treatments you can find in dentistry.
One area we’re passionate about is fixing crooked teeth. Contrary to popular belief, there are more orthodontic options out there than braces. And those orthodontic options are not just for children. Today adults are finding it easier to straighten their teeth and achieve the smile they have also wanted. At Clearwater Dental Associates, that can happen with two services: Invisalign and Incognito braces. Today, I want to show you the differences between these services and examine how they may fit in with your lifestyle.
Braces That You Can’t See
The biggest complaint I hear about braces is that they are an eyesore. It’s hard to disagree with that. I’ll be the first to tell you that conventional braces are incredible. They can fix major orthodontic issues like severely crooked teeth bite issues. What we can do in our office is provide those same results without the unsightly brackets and wires. Incognito braces take the brackets and wires and place them on the back side of the tooth. There is nothing visible. You can go through your entire treatment without anyone ever knowing that you’re undergoing dental care.
Clear Aligners that Fit in With Your Lifestyle
If braces are totally out of the question, consider the short-term orthodontic option Invisalign. Invisalign is a system that uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move teeth into a more appropriate position. This system is removable and virtually invisible. There is nothing fixed to the teeth throughout the entire course of treatment. Because there are no fixed brackets, you don’t have to worry about how you look, painful wire tightenings, or having the brackets and wires irritate your tissue.
Patients enjoy the treatment because they have the power. They can remove the device for eating and cleaning. For optimal results, you’ll need to wear the device for about 22 hours every day. Because the trays are removable, you don’t have the food restrictions that come with traditional braces. You can eat whatever you want.
