Who Needs Braces? Maybe The Whole Family Does…

If you grew up around the 80s, you may have wanted to get your teeth realigned but didn’t because you saw some of your friends being prescribed visible braces and were perhaps too shy to try. Fast forward to 2022, and you now probably have children of your own who could also benefit from getting their teeth realigned. So, why not bite the bullet and try braces Liverpool? There are many discreet options available in many dental clinics, and they are suitable for teenagers and adults alike. Life is too short to have regrets, so now is the time to get the smile of your dreams and feel fabulous every time you do!

Fixed braces

For some complex alignment issues, fixed braces may be required; however, they can now consist of white ceramic so that they blend in with your teeth. The wires and brackets can be this colour as well, so you won’t need to worry about other people noticing them as much. However, it is becoming a trend to choose coloured wires, known in dentistry as “elastic ligatures”, so you could have metal brackets and a red wire, for example. Make sure you research your dentist to ensure that they offer this if you think it would be a deal-breaker for you.

Clear braces

There are also removable aligners and braces that may be used for mild to moderate alignment issues.

Concerning removable aligners, ClearSmile is an example of removable aligners that apply pressure to the teeth to gradually move them into the correct positions. Results can be seen in as little as six months, although this will depend on your specific needs. The beauty of the aligners is that they are made of plastic, so when they are worn, only the teeth should be seen through this transparent material – a wonderful option for anyone aiming to keep their treatment under the radar! You can also remove the aligner when you want to eat and drink or brush your teeth and floss, so you won’t have to worry about contending with anything in your mouth while you do so.

Removable braces are another popular choice, and one example is the Inman aligners. Inman aligners have springs that move the aligner bows. The bows move in opposing directions, pushing the teeth into the appropriate positions. They are used to push and pull the front teeth to correct their appearance, so the treatment could be completed in as little as 6 to 18 weeks on average.

Find out more

To find out whether there are other discreet options, the best thing to do is visit a dental clinic that has cosmetic treatments. If you book an initial consultation, the dentist there can explore the treatment options with you and help you to find the right solutions for a discreet realignment. Don’t let the kids sit this one out either! Lead by example and get them smiling their best.

Realigning your teeth will allow them to be in the correct positions for optimum brushing benefits. Additionally, if you’ve ever had any jaw pain due to the misalignment of your teeth, for example, this may also be reduced. So, have a family day out to the dentist that none of you will forget, and you can all smile about afterwards!
