Things You Should Know About Getting Braces as an Adult

Maybe you really want to have your crooked teeth corrected, but you’re afraid of looking like a dorky kid with braces. After all, you’re an adult now. You have a career to consider, and you have to protect your professional image. Fortunately, technology and time have made it possible for adults to get a smile makeover without embarrassment or pain.

You don’t have to have braces.

It’s true – the days of metal brackets and painful wires are practically over! As an adult, you don’t have to go to work with a mouth full of metal; instead, you can choose to have beautiful straight teerh Invisalign in Singapore.

Invisalign is a system that uses clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into new positions. The aligners are customised to fit snugly over your teeth; and once you put them in, few people will be able to tell that you’re wearing them. You’ll be undergoing treatment to correct your teeth, but maintaining your professional appearance at the same time.

You’ll learn to take better care of your teeth.

When you’re investing money and time into your teeth, you start to care more about your dental hygiene routine. Ask your Singapore dentist to demonstrate the correct way to brush and floss, and ask him to recommend a good electric toothbrush to ensure that those pearly whites are getting clean enough.

If you use Invisalign, you’ll need to get into the habit of taking out your aligners every time you eat or drink anything but water. You will also need to brush and floss thoroughly after every meal or snack, before putting the aligners back in. It’s a little inconvenient, but it’s great for the health of your teeth. Just remember your end goal – a sparkling, smile with straight teeth that you can be proud of.

You won’t have to deal with a lot of pain.

Braces and fixed appliances are notoriously painful to wear. In the past, teens and adults with braces had to endure sharp bracket corners, poky wire ends, and the pain of teeth being moved into new positions. With Invisalign, there is still a bit of discomfort as the teeth move, but it is minimal compared to that of braces. In fact, research teams have done several studies comparing the discomfort factor of braces versus Invisalign- and Invisalign always comes out as the less painful solution. That’s good news for adults who have to continue working and taking care of a family while getting their teeth fixed.
