Braces and aligners enhance more than just your appearance
Many people, both youngsters and adults, are likely to focus on the effects that braces and aligners will have on their looks. That’s understandable, because of the boost in confidence and self-esteem that come with a radiant smile. But our orthodontist at Ortho Inc. is always quick to point out that our treatments are about much more than appearances.
Having straight, properly aligned teeth and a bite that is functioning correctly are all critically important when it comes to obtaining optimal oral health. With the modern treatments available in our state-of-the-art office, we can produce a smile that not only looks great, but feels great, too. We have more ways than ever to deliver superior results, comfortably and often in less time than in the past.
Here are a few examples of how our treatments deliver health benefits that are just as significant as the cosmetic enhancements:
It’s crunch time: When your bite is properly aligned, chewing, enjoying, and digesting your food are easier and much more comfortable.
An evening out: Straight teeth wear evenly and protect the enamel — that hard outer surface of the tooth.
Keeping it clean: Straight teeth are much easier to keep clean. Gaps between your teeth provide hiding places for bits of food and plaque — that sticky, bacteria-laden film that causes cavities and gum disease. Your toothbrush and dental floss will find far fewer obstructions en route to banishing these invaders.
Jaws Too: A bite that’s correctly aligned puts less stress on your jawbone, which prevents bone loss as well as painful conditions like TMJ.
Daily grind: When your teeth are in their proper positions, it is less likely that you’ll be grinding or clenching them.
You’ll be proud to show off the beautiful smile our orthodontist at Ortho Inc. will produce. But don’t overlook the lasting health benefits and overall comfort you’ll enjoy from our treatments. Please contact us today for an appointment.
