Why should I choose invisible braces?

5 reasons why braces are useful for adults

11.01.2019

Do you think braces are only for children or adolescents? Those days are long gone. Almost 20% of our cases are adult braces. This increase is largely due to the fact that dentists are now using more subtle, less visible options such as ceramic braces and Invisalign. Read on to find out if braces are right for you.

1. Every smile counts

When you meet someone, your smile is one of the first things they'll notice. If you are uncomfortable with your smile, or if you are trying to cover your teeth, it can seem uptight and unprofessional.
Many people say that crooked or unsightly teeth prevent them from enjoying their life to the fullest - and we can well understand that.

Of course, if you decide to buy braces or Invisalign now, you will have to limit yourself a few months - but isn't it worth this small sacrifice if you can smile your life afterwards without fear?

2. Teeth are not rivet and nail proof

Teeth can shift at any age. Possibly due to an accident, illness, or simply a natural change in the body. In fact, there are times when you have had straight teeth all your life but suddenly notice changes.

Your mouth region can change in adulthood - even if you had braces as a child. You may not have worn your retainer long enough, or your teeth may be genetically predisposed to shifting.

Unlike a few years ago, nowadays it's normal for
Orthodontists recommend their patients wear retainers or night braces (long-term).

Note: changes are normal. Clarify with us early on what we can do to keep your beautiful smile.

3. Crooked teeth are a possible disease factor

Research has shown that tooth misalignment is just as common in adults as it is in children and adolescents.

If you have a cross bite or crooked teeth, plaque and food particles can more easily build up between your teeth and in the spaces between your teeth. This means an increased risk of periodontitis or gum disease, as well as tooth decay or even tooth loss.

4. Crooked teeth can have health effects

A hidden smile may not be the only problem to address when you have crooked teeth. The result of the misalignment can be headache and earache. The mouth problem can also prevent you from chewing your food properly, and you often complain of gastrointestinal pain.

Even if you unconsciously and regularly bite your cheek or tongue, you may have an orthodontic problem - in which case you should seek professional help.

Note: Crooked or poorly aligned teeth can lead to serious health problems.

5. You hardly notice modern braces anymore

Braces have evolved over the years. You don't have to mess with spinach in the braces or with a wire rack in your mouth.

Probably the biggest innovation in orthodontics in recent years is Invisalign. We can adjust the clear, removable plastic aligners for you quickly and easily - without metal or wires. Your tailor-made Invisalign braces do not restrict you in terms of oral hygiene or the consumption of certain foods. You can remove them during meals and brush or floss your teeth as you normally would.

Invisalign does not cause pain and the duration of treatment is relatively short.

Note: Today's braces options are lighter, more convenient, cheaper and less noticeable - we would be happy to inform you about Invisalign!
