A proper jaw line gives you a confident smile. With all your teeth in proper alignment and sparkling white not only help you smile broadly, but also maintains your health. If your jawbone is misaligned or your teeth aren’t in proper position, then it doesn’t help you in chewing food properly. This can create stomach illness and indigestion. Apart from that, if your teeth are misaligned, then your speech is impaired and you can either stammer or skip letters. Therefore to maintain a proper teeth structure, one should be careful about their shape.
It is in young age when metallic braces were given to kids as that is the time when any shape could be given to jaw structure. However, metal braces being the only alternative have often made kids shy. Since metal showed whenever they smiled, spoke or ate therefore, some kids preferred staying in their shell instead of being outcast in public. Metal braces were fixed permanently which were difficult to remove. Therefore, when you ate anything, food got stuck in it which if not cleaned properly could cause germs and infection. Most metal braces were also harmful as they could damage gums with their sharpness.
Looking into all these problems, suggestions were made to prepare braces which were transparent and user friendly. Therefore invisible braces were introduced in market by Invisalign. They are transparent and are supposed to be worn for at least 22 hours in a day. You can take them out while eating or brushing, but not while sleeping. Since they are transparent therefore, it is difficult to identify unless one doesn’t stand very close.
Here are few reasons that can make your doubt clear if you really need transparent braces –
- You can treat minor issues with Invisalign braces if it doesn’t require surgery. Problems like overbite, under bite, cross bite, gapped teeth and crowded teeth.
- If you are kid, then you need proper metal braces because your teeth is growing, but if you’re a teenager or adult, then you should go for transparent braces to avoid any kind of discomfort or embarrassment in public.
- If you’re grown up who’s sincere about their daily routine, then you can go for transparent braces because you need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day and remove it while brushing and eating so that you’re free to eat any sticky food as well. Being a kid if you are careless with your braces, then it won’t work.
The best way to know if transparent braces are correct for you is by taking suggestion from your dentist. They undergo certain tests and X-rays to determine what kind of braces are good to bring proper alignment in your jaw structure.
