Gain perfectly aligned teeth with an orthodontist, Hampshire
If you are living with misaligned teeth, we understand the discomfort and issues you may be experiencing daily. It is still a sad fact that there is a large number of adults in the UK living with the issues caused by misaligned teeth when there is no need for them to do so given that there are modern treatments available on the UK dental market.
The main reasons that the problems associated with misaligned teeth follow someone into adulthood are the sufferer may never have been identified as someone who may have benefitted from the treatment, or they were offered treatment at a younger age, normally in their early teen years, but refused to engage with treatment for their own personal reasons. If either of these reasons rings true for you then this orthodontist, Hampshire, wants you to know that there is a way forward for you should you wish to receive tooth alignment treatment.
Resolving common issues
Many people who live with misaligned teeth may find it difficult to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene, because their teeth may be awkward to navigate around with a toothbrush. This can then lead to the increased risks of other dental issues occurring, such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Other sufferers may experience issues when eating, as they may have a weakened bite that makes biting and chewing food hard work. Aligning the teeth correctly can resolve this issue, building added control and power into the bite.
Misaligned teeth can also aspirate minor speech impediments such as stutters and stammers, making them appear far more pronounced than they need to be. Again, treatment can alleviate this issue.
If you are suffering with any of the above issues then it is important for you to know that there is no need for you to continue to live with any issue caused by misaligned teeth, as treatment is now widely available. Talking to an orthodontist, Hampshire, is your first step to accessing the treatment you may feel you need to make a positive change that will lead to an improvement to the standard of oral hygiene you enjoy.
Understand the treatment process
First, you will need to attend a consultation appointment with an orthodontist, Hampshire, where your teeth can be fully examined, and treatment options can be discussed fully with you. At this appointment scans or x-rays may be taken, for use when creating any aligners that will be used in your treatment.
Your treatment may include several sets of custom made aligners, that are created to perfectly fit your teeth and match your needs. Each aligner is designed to play a role within your treatment and is normally worn for two or three weeks then replaced by the next aligner in the series.
You should expect your treatment to last for twelve to eighteen months, but by the end, you should have the results you are looking for.
Many people remember the image of a child with braces from our childhoods, as adults, we may not want to see this image for our teeth. There is no need to be concerned about this, as most modern aligners are created from clear plastic, making them practically invisible to the eyes of others.
