Many of us in the UK wish we had the perfect teeth portrayed on TV and in films. The appearance of our teeth is not only important for how we look and feel about ourselves, but straighter teeth are usually more likely to last longer.
This is for many reasons. Straighter teeth are much easier to keep clean. Brushing is made more effective when teeth are straight and regimented. Put simply, there are fewer places for nasty bacteria to hide when your smile is perfect.
Here at Northlight Dental in Milton Keynes, orthodontic treatments carried out by our specialist orthodontist can change your life, by correcting the alignment of your teeth.
Braces in the past
Here, with your orthodontist in Milton Keynes, many different treatments are on offer to straighten your teeth and perfect your smile. In the past, if you wanted to straighten your teeth, your only option was traditional ‘train track’ braces.
This type of brace has put adults off straightening their teeth for many years. Many people don’t want to have to deal with the maintenance these braces require after doing something so simple as enjoying a meal.
Another factor that may put people off is the appearance of traditional braces. Luckily, thanks to advances in dental technology and the materials we can use, most of these problems have a solution with different types of treatments.
The new wave of treatments
A great new treatment that can be offered by your orthodontist in Milton Keynes is Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of custom-moulded tooth trays that are changed at home.
Your complete course of tooth trays is planned thoroughly and manufactured before your treatment even begins. This means your treatment is extremely predictable.
The tooth trays are made from a strong, clear plastic, so when they are in use they are hardly visible. They are also removable, making meal times much less of a hassle. When you come to clean your teeth, you simply remove the tooth tray and clean your teeth as per your usual routine.
Invisalign is a truly modern treatment that could change your life without getting in the way of it.
