Benefits of Orthodontics
Sure, orthodontics can give you a beautiful smile, but there are so many other reasons to choose orthodontics other than the cosmetic improvement.
Straight teeth can extend your life.
A recent study by The Journal of Cardiology showed that people with gum disease are more likely to suffer coronary artery disease. Those with properly spaced, straight teeth have an easier time effectively brushing and flossing – therefore lowering their likelihood of developing gum disease.
Straight teeth can improve your health.
Improperly spaced teeth can cause a myriad of problems. Headaches, jaw aches, difficulty chewing, teeth grinding, snoring, etc. Properly straightening teeth can eliminate these issues and greatly improve the quality of life, without the use of drugs or other expensive, long-term treatments.
Straight teeth can increase your self-confidence.
Study after study shows that when you look good, you feel better about yourself. When you are self-conscious about your teeth or smile, you tend to smile and talk less. And research shows that this can limit your success in school, career and social life. Improved self-confidence brings a happier lifestyle and more opportunities your way.
An orthodontist is a trained, expert in orthodontics.
These days, there are many people who offer to straighten teeth. While these efforts can work to a degree, you simply can’t beat the treatment planning and level of care from a trained, orthodontic professional. An orthodontist focuses 100% of their time on straightening and properly spacing teeth. An orthodontist can offer trusted experience and proven results to each and every patient.
An orthodontist can save you money.
It might seem easier and more cost-effective to go another route, but an orthodontist can often save time and money. Because an orthodontist focuses only on aligning and spacing teeth, they know the fastest and most painless way to get the job done correctly, the first time.
