Did you know that more adults are choosing braces to achieve a great smile. As well as straight teeth and a fantastic smile, orthodontic treatment has lots of other benefits that are good for you!
Do you hide your smile behind your hand? Do your teeth stop you smiling altogether because you think your they are ugly? By having braces, your teeth can be moved into a straighter and more beautiful position giving you greater confidence to smile, making you feel better and may lead to greater success in your career and your personal life .
#2 Less damaging to your teeth
Some people may want to have an “instant” smile – so called “quick braces” or sometimes drilling your teeth to put on crowns and veneers are solutions but these all too often need to be repeated and replaced as time goes on. With traditional braces, which can be hidden behind your teeth, or cosmetic so they can hardly be seen, teeth can be moved more gently into better positions, giving you a straighter and more natural smile. A quick fix is not necessarily the best answer for something that you want to last for the rest of your life.
#3 Healthier teeth and gums
Crooked, overcrowded teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss your teeth which in turn lead to problems with tooth decay and gum disease. By having brace treatment and straightening your teeth, brushing and flossing become much easier and you will benefit by having healthier teeth and gums.
#4 No more bad breath
When teeth are crowded and misaligned, plaque is often difficult to remove and food trapped in difficult to clean areas can begin to break down and “smell”. Bad breath follows. By straightening your teeth, cleaning becomes much easier, plaque and food debris can be removed and you can make sure your breath is fresh.
How much things cost is a major consideration but payments for braces can be spread over the treatment time which is usually around 12 to 18 months. The cost for braces can often be less than a lot of cosmetic dental work.
