Your teeth matter, this is no surprise to the vast majority of people in the United States. Of course, your teeth are hugely necessary for day to day life. We use our teeth to tear and chew, and eating the vast majority of foods would be much more difficult without them. But teeth are also important from a cosmetic standpoint, and can help people to form first impressions.
In fact, the data that has been gathered on the subject more than back up this claim, showing that very nearly ninety five percent of all adults in the United States feel that the quality of your teeth are important for attracting the opposite sex (or the same sex, depending on who you are attracted to). And a good smile is considered to be the number one feature that stays attractive or grows more so as we all go through the process of aging, with more than half of those who are at or over the age of fifty agreeing that this is so.
Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry is on the rise, and there are many ways in which you can improve the overall appearance and quality of your teeth. Of course, simply caring for your teeth on a daily basis will help you to improve your smile, as well as the health of your teeth. Brushing twice a day, avoiding foods with too much sugar in them, and visiting your general dentist or family dentist on a regular basis will help you to avoid the need for later cosmetic procedures.
But this does not mean, of course, that those who are already in need of them are hopeless. In fact, there are many reasons that this is far from the case – the prevalence of dental implants is one of them. For people who have lost teeth or who need their adult teeth removed, dental implants can be a great way to improve the look of their smile. In addition to this, dental implants will also improve their ability to chew, opening up a whole world of foods to them. And as dental implants are permanent, there is no need to worry about care for their dentures, something that can be aggravating for many people.
Dental implants are also highly effective and hugely successful, with ninety nine percent of all dental implants succeeding and working for the patients for whom they are implanted in. Of course, dental implants are an investment, but they are one that more than pay off for what they provide. And dental implants are on the rise, with up to half of a million more people investing in them each and every year.
But not everyone who wants to improve their teeth will need dental implants. Sometimes, a course of orthodontic care is all that is needed, as it has been found that up to twenty percent of the entire population does not have an ideal bite. Not only does this not look real, it also doesn’t help the health of your teeth any either. But many adults are hesitant to get braces, as the look of braces is far from ideal from a professional standpoint.
Fortunately, Invisalign presents a viable alternative to braces, and it is one that is hugely successful in the vast majority of patients as well. In fact, it’s so effective that the patient satisfaction rate is more than ninety five percent. In addition to this, Invisalign is much more quickly acting than the typical braces, a course of treatment typically completed in no more than a year – and sometimes in even less time.
No matter what your cosmetic concern for your teeth, you should visit the dentist. Your dentist can help you to assess your options and decide upon the one that will be the most advantageous – as well as the most cost effective, of course – for you and your teeth. Form dental implants to a course of Invisalign treatment to the application of veneers or even just basic teeth whitening, there are many options out there for improving your teeth, your smile, and even your confidence.
