Even just a few years ago, there were certain individuals being told that there was simply nothing that could be done to help them get a perfect smile. For some, just having slightly straighter teeth would have been a blessing, but even then the arrangement of their teeth and the way the gums had been affected made any orthodontic procedure to help improve their smile a non-starter.
Today, however, many of those people who grew up unable to have braces will find that there are procedures available that will be able to completely reconstruct their smile. Not only this, but whilst advancements in technology have made such procedures possible, cosmetic advancements have also meant that adult braces can be used for the treatment that are next to invisible.
Many adults avoid orthodontic treatment due to worries about the stigma of having braces at such a late age. However, with invisible braces, those who once could not have any treatment at all may now be able to have the smile they always dreamed of without treatment having much impact on their daily life at all.
Such procedures can totally alter the shape of the face for the better and allow people to feel far less self-conscious when smiling too. Furthermore, those whose teeth have caused them a great deal of pain over the years may suddenly find that not only are they able to smile without feeling self-conscious but that everything from eating to flossing becomes easier and far less painful to boot.
So, if you have been told in the past that orthodontic treatment will not be able to help you, it is now worth visiting an orthodontist in London and finding out if there are now ways to get your teeth straight and healthy, and without the associated mental and physical stress that might have accompanied the use of traditional braces.
