As one of the key signs of poor oral hygiene, badly aligned teeth can lead to a number of health problems for the sufferer, including: low confidence, discomfort when chewing or biting, and speech impediments, to name a few.

Left untreated, poor oral hygiene through misaligned teeth can increase the risk of plaque and tartar, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and even lung disease.

To correct the alignment of their teeth and improve overall oral hygiene, a patient can undergo orthodontic treatment. Thanks to developments in dental technology, there are now a number of options available for patients, including the use of clear aligners.

Transparent in appearance, these braces allow patients to undergo treatment discreetly, having little or no impact on their regular day-to-day life. More importantly, they are also removable. This allows for improvement in oral hygiene compared to fixed, as patients are able to remove the aligners to clean their teeth correctly – something that is often difficult with traditional braces.

Made from plastic, clear aligners are designed to slot over teeth – requiring no painful or time consuming fitting processes. Unlike metal braces that can cause discomfort to the mouth, and disruption to social life, clear aligners have been designed for the modern patient – allowing optimum comfort with the same great results.

Smilelign is crafted using the latest 3D CADCAM technology, resolving common issues in the anterior teeth. Ideal for issues with crowding, spacing, midline discrepancies, overbite, overjet, and openbite, our clear aligners work by slowly moving teeth in small increments, until they are in the desired position.

Treatment can take as little as 3 months, vastly changing people’s lives – and their overall oral hygiene.

Good oral hygiene and a healthy smile can improve self-confidence, performance at work, and even prospective relationships. To discover more about Smilelign clear aligners, visit Smilelign.com.
