The 6 Month Smiles System Can Help Straighten Your Smile and More

11 / 05 / 2015

When people smile, they want other people to see a perfect grin. Having crooked or misaligned teeth can turn that grin into a mismatched leer. Some people have perfect teeth, but not everyone is lucky. Either through genetics, early loss of teeth, gingivitis, and other factors, your teeth may not grow straight. This results in crooked, overlapping, and twisted teeth. You might even develop overbite or underbite. There are several approaches to straightening your teeth, one of which is the effective 6 Month Smiles System.

Crooked Teeth: The Consequences

Most of the time, people want to straighten their teeth for cosmetic reasons. You don’t exactly present a positive impression with twisted and crooked teeth in your smile—even knowing they are there can make people self-conscious about their appearance and hesitant to smile. However, there are other more practical reasons for straightening your teeth.

First, having an overbite or underbite can cause problems when chewing. Mismatched teeth make it difficult for food to be chewed properly, resulting in larger pieces of food. These may end up in the gaps of your teeth. This leads directly the second problem: crooked teeth make it harder for them to be cleaned. Brushing and flossing can find it difficult to dislodge dirt and plaque if your teeth aren’t straight. Finally, crooked teeth are still growing and direct pressure at each other. This strains your teeth and jaws, increasing the chance of a tooth breaking.

The Solution

Knowing if you have crooked teeth can be as simple as looking at the mirror.If you want to deal with the problem before it worsens, you’ll need to consult with a dentist. Dentists know how teeth are supposed to develop and they can recommend solutions before the crookedness becomes noticeable. In the past, this meant ugly braces. However, nowadays, London 6 Month Smiles experts like London Bridge Dental Practice can give you the 6 Smiles treatment.

The 6 Month system still uses braces but they’re not your traditional metal monstrosity. Clear braces that are unnoticeable and discreet nickel-titanium wires make sure that you won’t be embarrassed to smile. Using low force to gently nudge your teeth into position, you can be sure of results in just six months.

A good-looking smile is an asset that you can’t do without. Going only through six months of treatment to get ideal teeth is an easy sacrifice for an improved appearance. Consult with dentist now to ensure you can smile with confidence.
