Having your teeth straightened is often a part of growing up these days. Every year over 200,000 children are fitted with braces to correct problems with the way their teeth are growing. In most cases children are usually fitted with traditional fixed braces on the front of their teeth.
These fixed braces are effective but definitely not attractive and many adults who missed out on having their teeth straightened when they were younger prefer to live with crooked, misaligned teeth rather than wear this type of brace. As an orthodontist in Hampshire Dr Suzette Mulder is often asked what can be done to help adults who would like to have their teeth straightened without having to wear this type of brace.
The good news is that now she is able to tell them that there are a wide range of hidden or invisible braces which have been designed specifically with adults in mind. There are also a number of types of transparent braces. The most popular removable one is the Invisalign system, and Winchester Orthodontics is a leading provider of this product in Hampshire.
If you are searching for information on Invisalign aligners, you may see it misspelled as Invisaline on different blogs or websites. You may be amazed to learn that over 4 million people around the world have used this system to correct a range of orthodontic issues.
Clearly a good reason to have braces
You may think that deciding to have your teeth straightened is purely a cosmetic decision, but you may be pleased to know that by investing in straighter teeth, you are also investing in your long term oral health. When you think about it, it makes sense: straight, well aligned teeth are much easier to care for, and issues with an uneven bite can lead to problems over time.
