Deciding to make the investment in a straighter, healthier smile is a big choice. The time commitment, multiple visits, and even the cost of your braces come into play.
Maybe growing up, you didn’t have dental insurance or your parents couldn’t afford to pay for you to get braces. Now you’re independent and can budget for what’s most important to you personally. For some people, that means finally getting braces.
Thanks to affordable payment options, it’s easier to finance braces than ever before. That’s why so many working adults and parents are finally deciding to invest in their own smiles.
Having beautiful teeth is important to you. Perhaps your current smile makes you feel too embarrassed to do something as simple as smile in photographs. Straighter teeth can boost your confidence and help you to feel more outgoing.
Having healthy, properly aligned teeth makes it easier for your cosmetic dentist to provide services like veneers or bonding,
without compromising their integrity. Orthodontic treatment serves to provide a great template to work with.
You already wore braces once. But, either you didn’t wear your retainer or when your wisdom teeth came in, they pushed your teeth together again. Now you
see crowding or gaps where teeth have shifted back into place.
The older we get the more forward our teeth tend to drift. Look in the mirror; do your lower front teeth appear pushed together or starting to look flat? Aligning them properly can help you extend the life of healthy teeth.
Crooked, misaligned teeth are difficult to keep clean. Even if you floss each day and use an electric toothbrush, there will be areas that you just can’t reach. That’s why these teeth are so much more likely to suffer the effects of tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease.
Straightening your teeth with braces can help you to better care for your smile and reverse gum disease. Your dentist or periodontist may recommend orthodontic therapy as a part of your non-surgical treatment alternative.
Your jaw moves thousands of times each day. It relies on the upper and lower teeth to have a healthy biting relationship, so that it can work efficiently. But if your teeth don’t align properly, it causes minor modifications in your jaw function. This might not seem very significant, but over time it can cause pain and deterioration to your jaw and surrounding muscles.
Maybe you’ve been hesitant about seeing an orthodontist because you still don’t like the idea of “metal mouth.” Thanks to advancements in technology and materials, we can now straighten your teeth with clear or tooth-colored appliances. From invisible trays to ceramic brackets, or lingual orthodontics, you have more cosmetic braces options than ever before.
