Find Out if You Need to Wear Aligners
The business motivator Wayne Chirisa tells his listeners that a healthy and attractive smile requires visiting an expert for treatment. If you missed out on wearing braces as a teenager, then it is not too late as an adult to straighten your teeth. With a perfect smile, you can feel confident at work with your business associates or with friends at social gatherings. In most cases, you will not need to wear uncomfortable braces made of metal wire and brackets, but even if you do, the devices are only required for two to four years. With more people living to be 90 years old or older, it is worth wearing brackets and wires to repair the malocclusions of your teeth.
Aligners are Comfortable
However, the majority of patients who visit an orthodontist can wear Invisalign aligners instead that are practically impossible to see. With soft aligners, you will not feel a lot of pressure on your teeth and gums while the devices repair your misalignments. When an orthodontist tells you that aligners are appropriate for you, then for approximately one year, you will wear 25 different sets. Each set is made in a slightly different configuration to push against your teeth to reduce gaps or protrusions. You are responsible for wearing Invisalign aligners for most of the day and night, but the devices are barely noticeable in your mouth.
