How A Rockville MD Dental Office Helps Create Beautiful Smiles

By Clayton Maske

A crooked smile can negatively affect your self-esteem - and even make you afraid to smile. Children with crooked teeth are often teased and bullied.

Not so long ago, getting braces involved lots of wire glued to the front of children's teeth making them extremely obvious and uncomfortable to wear. For the entire time braces were worn, a number of foods had to be avoided. Anything that would stick to the wires, such as candy and gum were out of the question. Crunchy foods like popcorn and pretzels were also items that could cause problems.

Food tends to get stuck under the wires and can be hard to remove. The high visibility of braces can also invite teasing and bullying at school.

For some people, traditional braces are the only answer, but for most the modern solution is Invisalign. Instead of glued on braces, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that are essentially invisible and are removed to eat, drink and clean your teeth.

There are still some things most orthodontists recommend patients avoid. Tea and coffee can leave stains for instance. You shouldn't use toothpaste on the aligners. Washing them in mild soapy water is a better option. All things considered, the time spent correcting dental problems seems to pass faster with the modern aligners.

A healthy confident smile is within reach of almost everyone. Gone are the days when you had to be born with good, even teeth without gaps and discoloration. A good dentist can help you get the smile you deserve.
