Back to those benefits!

If you’re tired of feeling embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile, you’ll be happy to know that along with beautifully aligned pearly whites, your treatment will also boost your overall oral health, confidence, and quality of life!

Improved oral health

Orthodontic treatments significantly enhance oral hygiene, making it easier to brush and floss.

As a result, you’ll reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease.

Enhanced chewing, digestion, and speech

Your teeth are vital for chewing and speaking; misalignments can affect these functions.

Orthodontics fixes alignment issues improving your bite and making it easier to speak properly.

When we can chew our food properly and thoroughly, we can better digest our food, reducing the prevalence of bloating and other digestive upsets.

Prevention of dental issues

Misaligned teeth can cause uneven wear and tear, but orthodontic treatments can correct this.

Braces or Invisalign® will distribute your bite evenly, so your teeth will wear gradually over time, not prematurely.

With crooked teeth or misalignments, you may develop temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), which can cause headaches and jaw pain.

Orthodontic treatments create a harmonious bite and reduce your likelihood of TMD.

Enhanced confidence and self-esteem

But it’s not just about oral health–improved self-confidence is another significant advantage.

Having a positive self-image impacts your mental health, which can affect your overall health.

By straightening your smile, you can boost your self-esteem and improve your mental health, social interactions, relationships, and even career opportunities!

When you opt for orthodontic treatment, you’ll gain confidence and a new outlook on life.

Improved breathing and sleep quality

Orthodontic treatment creates better oral functionality. Correcting overcrowding or other similar issues that can hinder your airflow is especially helpful.

Opting for an orthodontic treatment will improve airflow and your overall respiratory health.

Plus, some orthodontic treatments can reduce your sleep apnea symptoms as you sleep by expanding your airways.

Long-term cost savings

Investing in orthodontic treatment is not just about obtaining a straighter smile–it’s an investment in your overall health, well-being, and future.

While the initial expense with Invisalign® or braces might seem daunting, what you get in return is multifaceted and long-lasting.

It brings both tangible and intangible benefits that far outweigh the expense.

  • It saves money on future dental care.
  • It alleviates pain and discomfort from misalignments and crooked teeth.
  • It prevents tooth decay, gum disease, jaw pain, and tooth loss.
  • It boosts confidence.
  • It improves self-image.
  • It improves speech.
  • It improves airflow and addresses sleep apnea.

Moreover, gum disease, which you’re more at risk for developing with tooth or jaw misalignments, has been known to cause diabetes and heart disease, both of which can require costly treatments.

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the likelihood of oral health issues later in life.

This translates to fewer dental visits, less chance of experiencing dental emergencies, and potentially lower dental care costs over the years.

The path to a healthier, confident smile

The benefits of orthodontic treatments are immense and extend beyond liking what you see in the mirror.

You’ll gain a new sense of confidence and better health overall.

Your mouth may be cleaner than it’s ever been.
