A smile makeover through orthodontic treatment has many benefits, from straighter teeth to a healthier jaw. It can bring improved confidence and enjoyment of life, so find out more about the benefits of orthodontic treatment below.
When you’re not confident in your smile, you smile, laugh, and talk less. Orthodontics can bring you the confidence you deserve through a healthier, more beautiful smile. Straighter teeth are within reach through modern, more comfortable braces or the Invisalign invisible system, giving you confidence not only in your results, but during your treatment as well. Loving the way your smile looks can go a long way toward being confident and enjoying your life to the fullest.
Straighter teeth are not only more cosmetically pleasing, they are healthier, too. Crooked teeth can result in problems biting, chewing, eating, and even speaking. They are also harder to clean properly, leading to complications such as cavities and more advanced tooth and gum decay. Straightening your teeth with braces helps to align your teeth and your bite to avoid problems and promote good dental health and general wellbeing.
Much like the complications arising from crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, such as an overbite or underbite, can cause complications with eating and speaking. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can lead to trouble opening your mouth or embarrassing clicking, popping, or grinding noises when you talk or eat, as well as pain, jaw stiffness, and even headaches. Using braces to gently bring your jaw into the proper alignment will give you a healthier, aligned bite to alleviate pain and other complications.
