One of the hardest things in life to do is to go around not smiling at all, or at least not smiling as much as you consciously can. When people have problems with their teeth they get embarrassed about other people seeing their teeth so they work at not smiling when they are around others.
Having crooked teeth is one of the biggest reasons for people trying to hide their smiles. When teenagers discover that their teeth are growing crooked, they start withdrawing from social encounters because they start believing that all others will see when they look at them is their crooked teeth. Oddly enough this same psychological situation occurs in adults.
Traditionally both teens and adults could go to an orthodontist for braces to be fitted to start the process of straightening their teeth or for closing gaps that have started to develop between teeth. The use of the typical wire braces can take from 36 to 92 months to complete their work and many times the wearer is just as embarrassed by wearing them as they are with their crooked teeth. There is hope though that at the end of the process they can get rid of the braces and have straight teeth.
Advances in dental procedures can now provide invisible braces in Hanover Park. A product called Invisalign® is a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners that can be used in place of the more traditional metal braces. The Invisalign® aligners are specifically designed for each individual patient and are removable for eating and cleaning. A new clear plastic aligner is used every two weeks until the process is completed, which will take from 12 to 18 months.
Having the nearly invisible Invisalign® aligners available, not only teens but also adults with crooked teeth are getting them fixed. Not everyone can make use of this great new product though. If the teeth are severely crooked, then it will take the strength of the metal braces to have any chance of correcting them. The Invisalign® aligners were designed for use on teeth less severely misaligned. Still, this saves thousands of patients the embarrassment of wearing the metal braces while getting their smiles repaired.
