Aligners for teeth gradually move teeth into proper alignment so that a person with crooked teeth can have straight teeth over time. There are different types of clear dental aligners on the market, including the popular Invisalign brand. Clear aligner treatment are seen as an alternative to traditional metal braces in that they are less obvious, and may be removed easily.
The first major benefit of a clear orthodontic aligner is the improvement to a person’s smile. While this is entirely cosmetic, the ability to smile can be of great importance when it comes to the quality of an individual’s life.
- First, this affects confidence in that a person with straight teeth may be less self conscious smiling.
- The ability to smile confidently may also affect how the person is perceived by others, so that having good teeth may have an impact on their social life.
- How good a person looks may greatly affect how people see them in their professional life as well, especially when it is related to something correctable like crooked teeth. It may be unfortunate, but many jobs are offered not on competence alone, but on how good a person looks, especially if that person is going to be on the front line of a business dealing with clients or customers face to face.
