The new year is a great time to start something new or make a change in your life. One thing which you may want to do in the New Year is change your appearance. A new smile is a brilliant way to do this! Orthodontics at Fresh Dental Smile Clinic offer so many options to get the smile you want. So what are you waiting for?
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten teeth. Using braces or a multitude of other appliances, teeth can be aligned to give you a straighter smile. There are numerous reasons to invest in orthodontic treatment, such as crowded teeth, lack of confidence in social situations, or being unhappy with the appearance of your smile. Having a straighter smile can make you feel more confident in your day-to-day life. Orthodontics can also improve aspects relating to oral health, as having aligned teeth makes them easier to take care of — if they look great you want to keep them looking that way!
Many of us may have a common conception of braces: fixed steel brackets with a wire attaching them. However, this method dates back to the 1900s, now there are so many other treatments available far removed from this old fashioned image. Orthodontics has so much variety so you can choose a treatment which suits you and your needs.
What types of Orthodontic Treatment can I have?
Treatment will differ depending on what changes you would like to see from your teeth, and what problems may be occurring. There is a difference between short-term and comprehensive methods. The latter will focus on alignment, ensuring that upper and lower teeth (especially the back teeth) bite together correctly according to textbook standards. Short-term methods concentrate primarily on aligning the front teeth, focusing on aesthetics and overall improvement in appearance.
Talking through the outcome you want to achieve with your dentist will ensure that you get the best treatment and results. In contrast to the orthodontic methods started in the 1900s, there are now methods available which mean your braces will be discreet and people may not even notice them.
With such a variety of orthodontic treatments on offer, there’s no reason not to get a new smile for a new year! Perhaps it’s something you’ve been thinking about for a while, or perhaps 2016 has a big event coming up. No matter what the reason is, be happy with your smile and choose orthodontics.
