The Importance of Orthodontics
Many people make the mistake of thinking that if they are okay with the look of their smile, they do not need to see an orthodontist. Unfortunately this not the case, and causes many people to live with painful or inaccurate chewing or difficulty speaking. Straight teeth do more than provide you with a pretty smile, they make it easier to talk, bite, and chew your food. Even if you think you do not need to seek orthodontic care, it might be worth a consultation to see if anything you are not aware of is going on in your mouth.
Orthodontics Is Not Just for KidsYou only get one chance at healthy teeth and gums, which means it is well worth the effort it takes to keep them in good shape. Typically orthodontic care is done as a child or teen in order to reap the greatest benefits, but there is no age limit on who can actually receive care to make their teeth as straight as possible.
It's Not Too Late to Align Your TeethMany adults who remember the days of head gear and other restrictive orthodontic appliances quietly shy away from seeing an orthodontist, despite the state of their smile. Today, however, orthodontics have greatly changed, giving everyone many choices, including clear aligners that make braces less noticeable for those who might feel embarrassed.
If you feel as if you suffer from teeth that are not as straight as they could be, have difficulty chewing or biting your food, trouble with your speech, or simply do not like the look of your smile, it is well worth it to schedule a consultation to see how we can help you make your teeth straighter and more comfortable.
