A significant part of the British population feels uncomfortable about their teeth and could be using cosmetic dentistry treatments, according to an expert.
Dr Pam Spurr, who is a relationship expert, revealed that many people are not satisfied with the orthodontic condition of their teeth.
“When they smile they know that they reveal their teeth and if those teeth are crooked, it makes them incredibly self-conscious,” she commented.
Dr Spurr noted that over a 1,000 women used Invisalign, a new technology that uses a set of removable transparent aligners to gradually move the teeth to the desired position and improve the appearance of the patient‘s smile
A research suggested that 46 per cent of the respondents felt uncomfortable about their teeth and that 60 per cent of the individuals considered a perfect smile to have straight, even teeth.
Dental practitioner Dr Paul Humber considers Invisalign aligners to be a comfortable and less painful solution to straighten teeth and achieve a perfect smile, compared to painful conventional braces.
According to Dr Humber, Invisalign aligners are becoming increasingly popular and can be used by patients as young as 13 and as old as 70.
