The advantages of straight teeth

In today´s image conscious society, the straightness of our teeth has a big impact on our facial appearance. Having straight teeth can boost your self-confidence, which can in turn have a positive effect on your professional and social life.

With advances in technology and treatments like clear braces, it´s becoming more appealing than ever to visit your local orthodontist. In Winchester, Winchester Orthodontics offer a wide range of solutions for your orthodontic needs.

What help is available to me?

With our orthodontist in Winchester, you can have a chat about your dental concerns and a solution can be found to fit your lifestyle. There are many factors to take into consideration when seeking help for crooked or misaligned bites. Together we’ll discuss cost, duration of treatment, and the amount of adjustment your teeth need.

A treatment that is growing in popularity is Invisalign, often misspelt Invisaline. This treatment is ideal for a range of cases of teeth realignment. The treatment consists of a series of plastic trays that are molded to your teeth.

At the beginning of your treatment, trays will be made for your entire treatment and your new smile planned. So you won´t have to have so many visits to the orthodontist. In Winchester, patients undergoing this treatment note that it´s much easier to keep their teeth clean as the trays are removable.

The most common treatment for crooked teeth is still the traditional brace, but now you can have clear braces with tooth-coloured wires and brackets. This makes the treatment much more inconspicuous, while still adjusting your teeth efficiently.

Hidden health benefits of straighter teeth

Besides the cosmetic advantages of straight teeth, braces comes with many other health benefits. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and dental health conditions.

If you have lived with teeth that don´t meet in the middle, you may have been at greater risk of damaging your teeth. When your teeth don’t meet properly, they are more likely to wear unevenly due to the application of uneven pressure when chewing. In short, your teeth are more durable when they are straight and even, making sure you can enjoy eating your favorite foods.
