When is the right time for braces in Colchester?

Perhaps the best piece of advice we can offer those who are looking to straighten their teeth is that the best possible time to begin wearing braces in Colchester is now. Whether you are a young adult who has seen a professional and have been advised it prudent to do so, or are a working professional who is seeking to feel more comfortable with a healthier smile, straightening your teeth is a choice that improves your wellbeing both emotionally and physically.

Thankfully, there are many different styles of braces in Colchester now available, meaning that we are more likely to meet the expectations and demands that you may have when looking for a device that fits perfectly with your lifestyle needs. We understand that many of you don’t wish to be visiting a dental practice frequently in order to constantly have your device manipulated in order to correct the alignment of your teeth. For some, this is a necessary reality, but for others who have a more mild to moderate misalignment, we have found alternative solutions.

This means that you can carry on with your life as normal, something that wouldn’t before seem possible with braces in Colchester. Some of our patients do this by using removable, plastic aligner trays rather than wearing a fixed device. They are able to take out their aligners when they want to eat something, so they don’t need to worry about not being able to eat certain foods.

To be hygienic and not have bad breath, you must brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in. For day to day experiences, 2 hours is generally long enough to eat throughout the day and so we recommend that you wear your aligners for about 22 hours each day. Anything less than this and you may be compromising the effectiveness of the entire treatment. We wouldn’t want you to waste your investment in time and money, so offer you several ways to keep motivated and on track.

What are these ways?

The Invisalign treatment developers understand that many of their patients are individuals who may struggle with motivation, such as younger people who haven’t quite grasped the implications of crooked teeth or even your everyday person who has a life to live! With aligners that have strips that change colour after they have been worn for an appropriate amount of time, this is one way that people can monitor their commitment and change their behaviours accordingly.

Because millions of people worldwide have used removable aligners, there is a strong community base of support and a network of people who are only too willing to share their experiences, motivate one another and offer general support and a listening ear. More important than the dentist, this 24/7 kind of contact has been found to be essential for the modern individual who is looking to find results for a healthy smile but this is just one of the many expectations that are currently a part of their life.

We understand. Let us help you to achieve a healthier looking and feeling smile so that you can tick that one off the list and move on to bigger things!
