How many times have you untagged a picture of yourself on social media just because you didn’t like your smile? Unfortunately, no amount of brushing or dental checkups can fix misaligned teeth. If you’re tired of being self-conscious about your crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth, consider wearing braces. Although there’s high value in having a more confident smile, braces aren’t just a purely cosmetic treatment.

Time and Pressure – The Perfect Teamwork!

A perfect smile requires perfect teamwork. Time and pressure work wonders when it comes together in straightening your teeth. Each misaligned tooth has to be adjusted with slow and steady pressure to avoid cutting off blood supply to its pulp. Braces are designed to apply the right amount of pressure to each tooth so that it moves to its correct location at the most efficient rate.

Braces Aren’t Just for Straightening Your Teeth!

Crooked or crowded teeth can lead to:

  • Difficulty chewing and speaking
  • Excessive wear on tooth enamel
  • Jaw issues

Crooked or crowded teeth can lead to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss

Braces can give you more than just straight teeth and a beautiful smile. After they correct your dental woes, chewing and speaking will be easier, jaw pain will be gone, you’ll see fewer cavities and less gingivitis.

There’s No Set “Best Age” To Get Braces!

Did you know that about 20% of those who wear braces are over 18? Although some people associate braces with middle school, many adults decide to get them because their teeth have shifted with age. Thankfully, there is good news! Braces are just as effective in older teenagers and adults as they are in kids.

It’s A Worthwhile Investment!

With a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique needs, wearing braces results in an overall healthier mouth. This orthodontic solution can give you decades of beautifully straight teeth and healthy smiles.
