How to Straighten Teeth at Home?
Having straight teeth not only looks beautiful, but it can also help prevent teeth and jaw problems in the future. Many of the dental experts recommend a visit to the orthodontist to get braces, and an orthodontist is likely to charge a lot of money to pull existing teeth and to fit it in your mouth. But that option is not available for everyone; that’s why I have mentioned some methods with the help of which you can straighten your teeth at home, so follow all the teeth straightening methods carefully to prevent any problems.
Method 1 (Finger Pressure)
This is one of the easiest methods to straighten your teeth at home, apply gentle pressure on your teeth in the direction you like, make sure to apply only gentle pressure to avoid long term problems or damage to your gums and teeth. If you are pushing too hard against teeth, then it can cause loose teeth, and that is an undesirable result that you will never want. Remember, your gums and palate are soft tissue, you have to be careful while applying pressure else you will end up with wounded gums, and if you do it in the wrong direction, then you can cause some long term severe problem to the teeth and the gum.
Method 2 (Dental Floss)
This method is the last one, but in this method, instead of applying pressure with fingers, one uses dental floss (very thin thread used to clean teeth). But make to apply pressure gently else you will end up hurting your gums.
Method 3 (Pressure by Tongue)
Applying pressure by tongue work the same as braces do, it exerts a certain level of pressure on teeth to move them into real position. You can use your tongue to exert pressure to move them gently. You can place your tongue in the space along the gum line and push it in the correct direction to straighten your teeth. Use the tongue to push your teeth when you are not speaking; you will get positive results over time if you have patience. The time depends on the current misalignment of your teeth.
Method 4 (Clear Plastic Aligners)
If you want a quickest or more effective way to get naturally straight teeth, then you can use clear plastic aligners. This simple device is another option in your quest to straighten your teeth at home; this easily removable dental aligner can simplify your life. Also, the clear plastic aligners never bonded to your teeth like orthodontic braces. If you are using a clear plastic aligner to move your teeth to a desirable new position, you only need to heat the device in hot water and fit it into your mouth; you need to wear it 22 hours a day until your treatment is complete. You can remove the aligner when you eat and store it in its case.
