Professional dentists and orthodontists help patients maintain healthy oral care, providing services to satisfy all oral health needs. Many patients wish to improve the cosmetic appearance of his or her smile. Dentists offer options and consultations for patients in order to discuss the wide array of options that may best suit individual needs.
For example, traditional metal braces and Invisalign are both effective methods to straightening teeth and correcting overbites, crossbites, underbites, spacing issues, and much more. Some families prefer the regular metal braces, which may cost slightly less in payments than alternative options. Although it depends on the person, traditional braces usually take roughly a year for desired results, limit the types of foods available to eat, and may irritate gums, lips, and flesh of the mouth due to the metal brackets.
In recent years, many dental patients show increasing interest in the new modern approach to straightening teeth—Invisalign. Although some providers may be more expensive in comparison to traditional metal braces, Invisalign with the clear plastic and the removable aligners makes teeth straightening more convenient and more discrete. The benefits, for many patients, easily outweigh the slight increase in price. Invisalign patients have fewer limitations towards diet, brush and floss teeth easily daily, and remove the appliance during sports and rigorous activities.
Consulting a professional dentist will help establish a trustworthy relationship, while the dentist offers important information and oral care through the entire cosmetic process. Dentists work with individual patients and families to create the best possible plans for dental health and cosmetic dentistry, catering specific treatments to optimize results.
