Do Something Good For Yourself
Orthodontic treatments have been around for centuries. The reasons for straightening your smile go beyond just the appearance of your teeth.
Your smile affects how you feel about yourself. If you are uncomfortable letting other people see your teeth, you may not let them see who you are. You may be hesitant to go for a job interview or have a video call with a potential client.
Your smile affects how others perceive you, too. It may not be fair, but some people do judge you based on your smile. In fact, surveys have shown that smiles are one of the things people remember after meeting someone. When your teeth are straight and in line, people are more likely to find you confident, friendly, intelligent, and successful.
Your straight teeth are better for your oral health, too. When your teeth are crooked or crowded, you can’t brush and floss as well as you should. This can create places in your mouth where harmful bacteria can grow, create plaque, and cause cavities and gum infections. When your bite is out of line, you can wear down your teeth faster, too. By getting your teeth in line, you can clean them more easily and effectively, and you can reduce the long-term damage to your smile.
Know Have Options
At one time, braces were the only option for repositioning your teeth. Today, you have more options, and you can find three of them at our office:
- Invisalign – These clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth. You wear each aligner for 20 to 22 hours daily for a few weeks before switching to the next one in your set. The clear plastic also makes them discreet and easy to remove during meals so you can keep eating your favorite foods.
- ClearCorrect – This is another clear aligner system. It offers many of the same benefits as Invisalign. For an explanation of the differences between these systems, feel free to ask us any questions during your consultation.
- Six Month Smiles – These are more similar to traditional braces, but with a more focused approach. Instead of trying to move all your teeth, Six Month Smiles focuses on the teeth at the front of your mouth. This allows the brackets and wire to change the appearance of your smile in less time.
