Are you considering getting orthodontic treatments for your smile? Braces for adults don’t have to be awkward. Here at Cool Dental at Lethbridge area, we offer discreet orthodontic devices to help straighten teeth.
Crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth aren’t cosmetic issues alone. These imperfections also affect your oral health. When your teeth aren’t properly aligned, they’re more difficult to clean. They’re also more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.
You can also experience chewing and swallowing issues as your upper and lower teeth don’t come in contact with each other properly. This can also result in speech problems. And since your teeth are working harder than they should, this can also lead to premature wear and facial pain.
If you’re thinking about getting an orthodontic treatment to correct these issues, the process may take longer than it is for children as your bones are already developed. The good news is that you aren't confined to the ‘obvious’ choices.
Why does having straight teeth matter? There’s more to this than meets the eyes.
With a straight set of teeth, you can improve the way your teeth work. Your teeth and gums will be healthier, cleaning your mouth will be easier, and you’ll also keep bacteria from accumulating.
And not only that, since your oral health will improve, you’re also helping your overall health. Reducing your risk for developing periodontal diseases can also help lower your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Crowded teeth are more susceptible to chipping and fractures. Misaligned teeth, overall, can also contribute to jaw pain, headaches, and even snoring and sleep apnea.

Will Invisalign® work for adults? Invisalign® is a great option for adults who are not comfortable with the use of traditional braces.
Invisalign® straightens teeth with the help of clear plastic aligners. We use an imaging device to map out a treatment plan for you. You’ll see how your teeth will improve at every stage of your treatment before you even get started.
Another advantage with Invisalign®, aside from it being virtually invisible, is that there’s no need for periodic adjustments. You don’t have to deal with wires and brackets.
