Misaligned teeth or malocclusion is primarily an inherited condition. Other causes could be congenital disabilities, childhood habits, injuries, or failed procedures. There are several options to choose from solve this condition of straightening your teeth. Read on to know more. Beautiful teeth can boost a person’s self-esteem and while the opposite can significantly affect the person’s appearance and overall confidence. Most people with teeth problems like malocclusion often are conscious whenever they talk, smile, or laugh. Covering their mouth has become their habit. Their purpose is to hide their teeth. Fortunately, nearly all cases of misalignment teeth can be treated or corrected through the orthodontic procedure. There are different types of teeth-straightening methods, and each class will vary upon the severity of the misalignment and the patient’s age. Here are the options for straightening your teeth:

  1. Clear Aligners – also known as the invisible braces, are customized removable plastic aligners. This procedure is to shift the misaligned teeth into place. Someone with malocclusion and alignment problems such as crossbites and overbites usually experiences this.
  2. Metal Braces – This is the most effective and traditional orthodontic treatment. The metal brackets and archwire apply pressure and hold the teeth in place.
  3. Lingual Braces – This procedure differs from the two mentioned because the bracket of the lingual braces procedure is at the back of your teeth. The frames are customized to fit the arch of the patient’s mouth and the shape of the teeth.
  4. Ceramic Braces – These clear braces will give you straighter teeth using the same procedure with metal braces. It also has the same treatment time as metal braces. The only difference is that this procedure uses ceramic braces instead of metal, making them less visible than metal braces.
  5. Retainers – this is placed after the straightening treatment. It can be removable or permanent. Braces straighten the teeth, and the retainers will keep your teeth into their original position after the braces.
  6. Headgear – this is usually used together with braces. Because while the braces correct crooked teeth, a headgear will aid the proper growth and shape of the patient’s jaw.
  7. Orthognathic Surgery is to correct severe jaw misalignment and other significant issues affecting eating and sleeping problems.
  8. Palate Expanders – it is a straightening procedure that improves breathing abilities. It widens the roof of the mouth or the children’s palate with crowded teeth, crossbites, and impacted teeth. This treatment usually takes 3 to 6 months.

To know which procedure will suit you best, visit your dentist for a check-up. Remember, straight teeth will help you chew and eat properly, enhance your smile, and boost your confidence.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
