There are several disadvantages to having a set of misaligned teeth beside the fact that they make you look less attractive they also cause a number of other problems like tooth decay and chewing problems. Majority of the people who suffer from being born with crooked teeth rather than straight teeth have gotten treatment for it in their early years but fact is that the results are not permanent every time and can get misaligned again when in their adulthood the wisdom teeth start t come in and push the other teeth out of their spots thus ruining your straight teeth.
Braces are perhaps the most widely accepted method of dealing with crooked teeth when it comes to teenagers but it is a fact that most adults don’t accept the treatment and choose to deal with having a misshapen smile instead as they find the braces uncomfortable and so they get conscious about their looks. But that’s the people that clear braces were made for so now they too can have straight teeth and a perfect smile.
Clear braces like clearliners offered by clearline ortho are designed to move your teeth into their positions using gentle but continuous pressure. The braces are designed to appear virtually invisible when inside the mouth so the patient can go about their lives without having people know that they are getting treatment. The braces are changed after every 2 week as a new set is given to make up for the shifting of the teeth. The duration for treatment depends on the condition of the teeth and in some cases can take up to a year but in all cases the duration is half of that of metal braces.
For those of you who are just looking for a quick fix veneers are the best option. Veneers are made of porcelain in the shape of your tooth using moulds of the tooth that are taken before hand. Veneers are made so that they not only look but they also give the feel of real teeth and can cover small abrasions and gaps and can also serve the purpose of tooth whitening.
Crooked smiles are not only associated to your looks but can also affect your dental health as crooked teeth are more prone to getting tooth decay and bite problems. If left unchecked the problem only grows till in some cases the patients end up with having the TMJ so to avoid all this and get a beautiful smile have your teeth aligned and walk around with even more self confidence knowing you have the perfect smile.
