With an increasing amount of minimally-invasive brace options available to patients, it’s easier than ever to undergo the orthodontic treatment you need. In 2018, 20% of patients having treatment are adults – this is principally down to the variety of treatment options and choice of non-invasive brace options available. Read on to find out more about how orthodontic treatment can benefit you.
Improve your confidence
Crooked and misaligned teeth can leave you feeling reluctant to smile, affecting relationships, your happiness, and your confidence. Many patients feel the most significant change post-treatment is the effect on their confidence – an invaluable benefit.
Six Month Smiles at Cornerhouse
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary treatment that can treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems in as few as 6 months, as the name suggests. The brace’s main characteristic is its discreet design, which incorporates tooth-coloured wires and translucent brackets, making Six Month Smiles a perfect choice for patients who do not wish for their appearance to change radically throughout the treatment period. Six Month Smiles straightens your teeth in the same way as traditional brace models, applying gentle pressure despite the short treatment time.
Tackle bad hygiene
Unnatural gaps in your mouth can make brushing and flossing challenging as food particles can settle within these gaps, causing a build up of bacteria if they are not swiftly removed. This bacteria can lead to plaque and tartar – harmful bacteria that coats your tooth enamel and renders you susceptible to gum disease.
Prepare your teeth for any further treatment
If you are looking to undergo cosmetic treatments such as tooth whitening, misaligned teeth will need to be treated before you can undergo this to ensure the best possible results. Whitening agent is most effective when it is evenly distributed, which is much easier with straight teeth.
