See the Clear Benefits of Straight Teeth

You know what you see when you look at your smile in the mirror. You don’t like it.

Maybe your teeth are crooked. Maybe they look crowded and pressed together. You might have a gap between your teeth that bothers you. Likewise, you could have an overbite or an underbite.

Whether you have one or more of those issues, you can make the change that you want to make with orthodontic treatment. Even so, you may be hesitant to wear brackets and wires. By coming to Relax Dental, you can change your smile discreetly with Invisalign clear aligners.

Better Than Braces?

You might be skeptical that plastic aligners could be as effective as traditional braces. That’s understandable. At the same time, you should know that millions of people have straightened their smiles with this system.

In truth, many people have found that aligners are preferable to braces. There are a few reasons for that:

  • Convenience – Braces can interfere with your everyday life while you are undergoing treatment. You are supposed to avoid certain foods. You also may need to change your normal oral care routine in order to brush and floss effectively. In contrast, your aligners can be removed during meals and your daily oral care routine, so no changes are necessary in those regards.
  • Comfort – Brackets and wires will get your teeth moving. They can also be painful. You may find they irritate your cheeks or lips. Should something break, your braces can poke into your gums or other soft tissues. Each aligner is a single piece of smooth plastic that won’t cause those kinds of problems.
  • Clarity – It’s difficult to ignore the fact that someone is wearing braces. That can be a distraction for other people. Meanwhile, the person (particularly adults) wearing the brackets and wires may feel self-conscious. Your clear aligners, on the other hand, seem to disappear when placed over your teeth. This is because the aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth at each step of your treatment.

Why Alignment Matters

Regardless of what orthodontic treatment you use, the benefits of having straight teeth are the same.

When your teeth are in good alignment, it makes your smile look nicer. Surveys have shown that people find others more trustworthy, more intelligent, and friendlier when they have straight teeth. First impressions matter in both your personal and professional life. A straight smile can help in a job interview, a sales pitch, or a first date.

By creating the kind of smile that you like, you can improve your self-confidence as well. That makes you more likely to share your smile instead of feeling like you need to hide your teeth behind your hand when you speak. You may not realize how much of an obstacle your smile can be until that’s no longer the case.

Having straight teeth also makes it easier to maintain your oral health. Your toothbrush is more effective when your teeth don’t overlap one another. You don’t create added wear and tear when your bite is properly aligned. Plus, dental floss is easier to use when you can fit it between your teeth.
