Adult orthodontics in NavanTuesday, 21st July, 2020
Although people generally think teeth straightening treatments are for young adults and children, adult orthodontics in Navan is the fastest growing industry in oral health care today.
Adults who missed out on oral health care in their youth, either because treatment was too expensive, it wasn't suggested or it was thought not necessary because the misalignment of their teeth was not significant enough are now struggling with incorrect bites, crooked teeth and unhealthy mouths that will only get worse with age.
Because we have access to oral health care more readily, we have all become more aware of what we can receive in terms of cosmetic and restorative dental care. Our lives, well documented on social media, have also pushed us to aspire to perfection, idolising celebrities who have spent thousands on their appearance.
Although hard on ourselves and sometimes unhappy with our natural beauty, straightening our teeth is beneficial not only for our confidence but our overall health and wellbeing as well.
We recommend that you come in and speak with one of our highly trained dentists who specialise in orthodontics in Navan so that you can gain an understanding of your personal situation. You will be surprised at the different treatment programs that we can offer you, the affordability of the procedures, and the length of time that will be proposed that you need to wear them for.
Orthodontics in Navan has progressed phenomenally over the years, with advances in technology in traditional braces as well as the development of discreet and even invisible options. Adult braces, being such a popular expectation in oral health care these days, are quickly developing and you can benefit from the research and investments that we are making to give you choice and chance at having that healthier and more beautiful smile you have always wanted.
What are some of the options available?
Traditional braces are still in common use for those people who have more severe misalignments because they give our dentists the most control over the manipulation of your teeth.
But many adults only have mild to moderate issues that are more cosmetic, so other treatments have been streamlined to accommodate for this demand. 6 Month Smiles, as its name suggests, provides a solution that can be met within 6 months. A fixed device is used and wires with a memory are attached to brackets affixed to your teeth.
Over the course of those next few months, the wires gradually and consistently move back to their original straight position and pull your teeth with them.
If you are looking for a more discreet option, then perhaps clear aligners will be an option for you. As they are removable, you can take them out to eat but you must be disciplined enough to ensure you brush your teeth and place them back in your mouth so that you can obtain the expected results. You must wear these aligners for at least 20 hours every day to achieve the results that can be discussed.« Back
