In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment. Just a little more than a decade ago, braces were something often referred to as “metal mouth” or “tin grin.” As concerns over aesthetics increased in our society, there was a strong push for more discreet orthodontia. Without it, many people chose to simply live with their crooked smile, even if it left them feeling dissatisfied with their appearance.
Advances in orthodontic technologies have improved the look and feel of standard braces. At the same time, adults who have yet to treat misalignment are discovering the heavy cost of a crooked smile. Not only does overcrowding or too much space pose cosmetic concerns, but misalignment can also prove physically uncomfortable. When bite issue result in too much stress on the joints of the jaw, symptoms such as chronic headaches, earaches, or jaw pain may occur.
Due to new technologies, it has never been easier to straighten teeth
, no matter how old you are. Today, men and women well past their teen years are seeking a discreet way to improve the look of their smile as well as their oral health. In our Etobicoke
dental practice, we are happy to offer the most discreet orthodontic treatment to date: Invisalign.
Invisalign did not take the world of dentistry by storm. When this treatment was first developed, it was considered more useful for the cosmetic improvement of the smile. With constant effort from the makers of this teeth straightening process, the Invisalign system has now evolved into a viable solution not only for overcrowding or extra space but also for most bite issues.
Invisalign offers teens and adults of all ages a way to achieve their smile and oral health goals without having to live with affixed brackets and wires for 12 months or more. The primary draw of the Invisalign system is its design of clear plastic aligner trays. More than being discreet, these aligners are also removable, making the process of eating, brushing, and flossing more convenient and productive.
The Sherway Dentistry team can help you design a smile that you love. Call our office at 416.639.2546 to find your solution to misalignment.
