If you need to straighten your teeth and you are an adult, you might not want to go with braces because you may feel really embarrassed by having braces as an adult. However, that doesn't mean that you don't want to have straight teeth. You have another option. That option is to go with something like clear aligner trays. There are a lot of reasons why you might want to go with this solution.
Ease of Use
The trays are fairly easy to use. Once the orthodontist has taken a mold of your mouth and made plans for what the finished product will look like, you will get the first in a series of trays. All you need to do is pop them in your mouth, like a retainer or mouthguard. They cover your teeth and will start moving your teeth as soon as you put them on. It's not an immediate move, as it takes time, but it will happen. You will have to get new trays every so often because it's time for your teeth to move over a little more. This is like going to the orthodontist to check your progress and tighten traditional braces.
The clear aligner trays are just that, clear. No one knows that you are wearing them because they are invisible. You are going to be able to smile and talk without anyone seeing them. You may take a couple of days to get used to talking while wearing them because having something in your mouth all the time will change the way that your mouth feels and how it moves, but once you get past that stage, you should be fine.
One thing most people don't think about when they are getting braces is the fact that traditional braces can hurt. The wires and brackets can cause damage to the inside of your lips and cheeks, especially when you first get them and are getting used to them. The sharp edges can rip open sores. But these trays don't have those same sharp edges, and while you may feel some discomfort from your teeth moving around, you shouldn't have any pain.
If you are an adult and want to correct your smile, you can choose to go with removable teeth aligners. You will be able to get the smile you want while not letting anyone know that you have braces.Share
