Most people think of their teeth as a functional tool that helps them eat and of course greet people with a great smile. Of course if you are in the group of people that have suffered with bad teeth through out their life time your teeth have a lot more meaning in your life. I had a health scare that was linked to my teeth that changed how I looked at my teeth forever.
My teeth were crooked and crowded and just a mess. I had suffered with tooth aches from cavities no matter how much I brushed and flossed. It was impossible to keep my teeth really healthy because they were crooked and made flossing really well impossible.
I wound up with a terrible abscess in my tooth that caused me to get quite sick. I ran a fever, had neck pain and the doctor feared that the infection would spread. I had to take high doses of antibiotics to cure the infection. I vowed to never have to deal with that again.
I went to see a private orthodontist London clinic in Hammersmith and he said Invisalign braces could help to straighten my teeth and improve the health of my teeth. That is all I needed to hear. It did not take much to sell me on the idea of helping myself to get healthier teeth.
I am big on self help so I did some research into the subject of lingual braces at the London orthodontist and what I found out about braces simply amazed me. Braces move your teeth gently into the position that they are meant to be in. They do not cause any real pain. You may feel some pressure but that is how you know they are working!
The orthodontist in London said that Invisalign braces would slowly push my teeth little by little into the position that they were always meant to be in and that no one would really even notice that I was wearing braces but they certainly would notice when I was done with the series.
More so for me was the idea that my teeth could be healthy and last me my lifetime with no more mouth pain and no more dangerous infections of the teeth. This was the biggest selling point for me. Healthy teeth was something I had hoped for my entire life.
If you are an adult and you have been dealing with a life time of painful tooth infections and cavities that are directly related to the position of your teeth than you should know that there is help available. If you are the parent of a child that has some orthodontic issues please get them the help that they need.
