5 Reasons to Consider Getting Braces as an Adult

 We’re all aware of how important oral hygiene is. From brushing twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwash, if your teeth aren’t perfectly aligned, keeping your teeth and gums healthy can be difficult. Aside from your health, you may have confidence issues with your teeth, which leads us to the prospect of getting braces.

Straightening your teeth can help you to achieve a picture-perfect smile and boost your self-esteem too. You’re never too old to get braces, so here are five reasons why to consider them today.

Stop Pain

It’s no surprise that dental problems can cause you pain in your day-to-day life. Should you develop an issue like TMJ (temporomandibular joint), you may begin to get painful headaches and suffer from jaw pain. While it may seem like this pain is something you’ll have to put up with forever, orthodontic treatment can stop any discomfort you’re in. Braces are excellent for correcting this problem and aligning your teeth.

Fix Spacing Issues

Diastema is the term used for spaces that occur between the teeth. Although it’s highly common, you may feel insecure about it. Thankfully, orthodontic treatment can solve the problem. This is because braces work to move the teeth, so they eliminate any gaps. If your gaps are a real concern and you’re not sure where to turn, now may be the perfect time to consider getting braces. 

Boost Your Confidence

Think how many photos of you involve you hiding your teeth. If the answer is too many, your confidence and self-esteem may be affected as a result. Many of us dream about having the perfect smile, so if you feel anxious about showing your teeth to others, it’s time to take action. Orthodontic treatment can instantly boost your confidence, give you a smile that you’re proud to wear, and benefit you in your personal and professional endeavours too.

Correct Crowding

If your teeth are crowded, this can cause a wide range of mouth issues. It can be difficult to clean areas where crowding occurs, leading to a build-up of plaque, tooth decay, and severe gum disease. What’s more, you may get heart problems later on in life. Correcting crowding with orthodontic treatment from the-oakwoodclinic.co.uk will make it much easier to clean your teeth and have a healthier mouth. 

Avoid Breathing Issues

You may not be aware, but misaligned teeth can impact your breathing. If you’ve noticed that you’re always breathing from your mouth (especially when going to sleep), this can lead to issues like snoring or sleep apnoea. Something as simple as getting braces and aligning your teeth could potentially eradicate these health issues. As your teeth align, this gives your tongue more room to properly relax, allowing you to breathe better through your nose. 

If you’ve decided on orthodontic treatment, once you select your braces and navigate through the process, you’ll start to see promising results as your teeth start shifting. Remember, it’s never too late as an adult to get braces.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
