If you are one who would rather dislike your appearance than go through orthodontic treatment, it’s time to change your mind set.

Orthodontic treatment is extremely beneficial and is vital if you wish to have a healthy and beautiful smile. Braces and other orthodontic appliances successfully transform your smile as well as improve your oral health. First, they can correct problems like misaligned teeth, underbites, overbites, jaw joint disorders, and incorrect jaw joint positions. If these problems aren’t corrected, they could lead to bigger problems, like impaired plaque removal, which could eventually lead to gum disease. They are also a great self-esteem booster. This treatment can finally wash away the embarrassment your feel every time you smile, talk, or laugh. They can can also give you the smile of your dreams for a lifetime, which means that once your treatment is completed, you will never feel ashamed or embarrassed of your smile again.

Now, we know a lot of the reason why you don’t want to receive orthodontic treatment is because you don’t want a metal-filled smile, but we are happy to tell you that when it comes to orthodontics, you have multiple options, like:

Traditional braces: This appliance contains metal brackets and wires that are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth.

Ceramic braces: This appliance has tooth-colored brackets and wires that provide a natural appearance. The appliance is glued to the front surfaces of your teeth.

Invisalign®: This appliance is a clean, removable, and plastic aligner that fits over your teeth and gradually transforms your smile over time. It is also virtually invisible.

Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces, but instead of the brackets being glued to the front surfaces of the teeth, they are glued to the back of the teeth.

There are many benefits to orthodontic treatment, and we are more than happy to go into further detail if you call our office today and talk to a member of our friendly orthodontic team. We look forward to hearing from you!
