The Reasons Why You Should Align Your Smile

Posted .

Orthodontic treatment is very beneficial and successful, especially if you wish to have a healthy and beautiful smile, but many despise the treatment and refuse to take the steps needed to correct their smile. If you could be considered as one of these people, we are here to change your mind.

There are many reasons why you should align your smile. First, orthodontic treatment can finally eliminate the embarrassment you feel every time you smile or look at yourself in the mirror. It is a great self-esteem booster and it helps you finally love your appearance. The treatment can also greatly improve your oral health. It can fix problems like misaligned teeth, overbites, underbites, and jaw joint problems. If these problems aren’t corrected, other issues form, like impaired plaque removal, which can eventually result in gum disease. Finally, orthodontic treatment can give you the smile you have always wanted for a lifetime, which means that once your treatment is over, you’ll never feel ashamed of your smile again.

Now, when it comes to orthodontic treatment, you have many options, including:

Traditional braces: This appliance consists of metal brackets and wires and it is glued to the front surfaces of your teeth.

Ceramic braces: This appliance has tooth-colored brackets and wires that are visible but natural looking.

Invisalign®: This appliance is a virtually invisible appliance that covers your teeth like a mouth guard and one that gradually changes your smile throughout time. This aligner is clear, plastic, and removable.

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