“I Have a Tickle in my Brain and it Keeps Making the Corners in my Mouth Point Towards the Heavens”

It’s common knowledge that smiles are infectious. Smiles resulting from pure joy make the entire face feel ecstatic. However, conditions exist that cause many people to feel self-conscious about their appearance when they smile. For instance, uneven teeth, gaps, and overbites can all put a damper on expressions of joy. Fortunately, an experienced orthodontist can fit you with braces that will leave you with a smile worth beaming about.

Braces for the 21st century

There was a time when braces were primarily for young teens, but modern Invisalign technology makes it possible for adults to get smile restructuring too. After all, those in professional positions or people who are active on the dating scene probably don’t wan to be seen with a mouthful of metal. Your orthodontist can fit you with Invisalign products that discreetly straighten teeth without being noticeable to others. Because these products are removable, you can continue your dental hygiene program of brushing and flossing uninterrupted, and unlike teenagers who wear traditional teeth-straightening devices, you’ll be able to continue enjoying your favorite foods for the duration of your treatment. Your friends, dates, acquaintances, coworkers, and business contacts won’t see the braces in your mouth, but they will notice improvements in your smile as time goes by.

Your orthodontist will remove the aligner and replace it with a new one every two weeks. This process will continue for approximately two years, when you’ll emerge with the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of having. You’ll experience a customized treatment plan designed to meet your individual needs and preferences, and you’ll recapture that feeling your had as a child when you smiled with joy without feeling a shred of inhibiting self consciousness.
