Orthodontics – Are You Worth it?

The short answer to this question is, yes- you are worth it! Orthodontic treatment involves using clear or metal braces or Clear Aligners (also known as Invisalign®). It may also require the use of a functional appliance. It is important to delve into the 3 key reasons why you should consider aligning your teeth with a specialist orthodontist.

  1. Better Oral Hygiene

By straightening your teeth, your gum and tooth health will also improve. This is because straight teeth enables you to access all areas of the tooth surface when brushing and flossing, leading to less plaque buildup. Better oral hygiene also means a decreased risk of gum disease and tooth decay, leading to a healthier and long-lasting smile.

  1. Improvement in your Bite

Braces and clear aligners, along with functional appliances, can assist in improving the way that your teeth meet together and function. This means it can help prevent chipping of teeth, attritional tooth wear, correct crossbites and other jaw alignment issues. By improving your bite, it could also mean lower risk of developing jaw issues, such as asymmetry and TMJ strain.

  1. Boosts Confidence

Not only does orthodontic treatment have health and functional benefits, but it can also significantly improve your self-esteem. When you have misaligned teeth, you may not have the confidence to smile and show your teeth. Having a smile that makes you feel good ensures you make a great first impression and live your live to the fullest.
