In recent years, there has been a huge increase in demand for tooth straightening treatments. This is probably because people know that dental technology has come a long way since the days of traditional braces.
Because of this increase in demand, more dental practices are offering different types of tooth straightening treatments. Variations of traditional braces that have been improved by modern materials are popular, as well as plastic aligners, and a kind of braces called Incognito in Weybridge.
All these newer treatments serve to straighten a patient’s teeth in a less conspicuous way than traditional fixed braces.
Invisible treatments for astounding results
Incognito is the first fully-customisable lingual bracket system. A lingual brace is a brace that attaches and works on the back-side of the teeth. This is why this treatment is almost completely invisible to the naked eye.
The only people who would know a patient is having treatment is themselves and whomever they wish to tell, so it’s truly incognito. In Weybridge, the brackets are fully customised to fit each tooth by using
3D imaging technology to precisely scan each surface, and then plan the angles for each bracket
Why strive for straighter teeth?
Patients don’t just want straighter teeth because they have more aesthetic value. Straighter teeth are also healthier teeth. When teeth work properly together when chewing, they are less likely to be chipped and cracked. They will also wear more evenly, making them last longer.
When teeth are straight, they are much easier to keep clean. Brushing is made much more efficient and effective because there are fewer gaps for bacteria and plaque to hide away in.
Keeping plaque at bay is important in protecting a patient’s teeth. When these bacteria build up around the gums they give off acid, and this is what irritates and inflames the gums to cause gum disease. Advanced gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Having straighter teeth can give a huge boost to a patient’s self-confidence, leading to who knows what in their lives. A recent study shows that a person’s smile is the first thing people notice when they meet someone new, so it pays to make a good impression.
