You know an apple a day can keep the doctor away and healthy foods like bananas can help you to have strong teeth. You never neglect your oral hygiene regimen and you have managed to avoid tooth decay for the most part. Your biggest concern is spacing issues. You do not have enough room in your mouth for all of your teeth. Not only does it make it hard to clean your teeth because some spots are nearly impossible to reach, you can’t stand how it looks. You smile with your mouth closed most of the time because you are so self-conscious. You can do something about it. Let an orthodontist tell you about your alternatives for orthodontic treatment.
Braces or Invisalign
Visit an orthodontist and you can get a professional opinion about the best solution for you. Discuss the possibility of braces or Invisalign. Braces can be worn on the front of back of the teeth. They can have clear brackets, be colorful, or you can choose traditional, metal wires and brackets. Invisalign has gained in popularity as a common treatment method. It will mean wearing aligners that are clear and changed often. With each set of aligners, your teeth are shifted into the proper position. You can remove them when you are eating, if you are involved in contact sports, or there is a special function. Over time, you will see results.
