As the end of this year approaches, you may be thinking about what you’d like to accomplish in the coming year. For many people, this means setting weight loss or personal achievement goals, while for others it means setting business or family goals.
Have you been thinking about taking your smile to the next level? If so, the new year is the perfect time to go for it.
New Technology for Shorter Treatment Times
If you grew up hearing horror stories about braces, you may be hesitant to jump into orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, the days of headgear, uncomfortable adjustments, and needing to wear braces for four years or more are over. Now is a great time for anyone to get braces, whether for major corrections or just a minor issue. Many patients find that they can complete treatment in under two years (sometimes even less than a year), and oftentimes you don’t have to come in for adjustments as frequently.
Taking Better Care of Your Teeth
Believe it or not, braces aren’t just to make your teeth look pretty. If your teeth are misaligned or you have a bite problem, you may have issues with brushing or flossing properly, which can mean that you’re more likely to get cavities. You may also have trouble chewing, which can cause gastrointestinal issues over time. Sure, braces will give you a straight, beautiful smile – but they will also ultimately help you take better care of your teeth and your health for the rest of your life.
As an adult seeking orthodontic treatment, you may be concerned or self-conscious about how braces might look. Advancements in technology and bracket design have made it possible for you to look like you’re not even wearing braces, even if you are. There are a number of options available to you that will allow you to subtly and effectively transform your smile without anyone even knowing.
Increased Oral Health… and Confidence
Having an improper bite or misaligned teeth can affect a lot of different things and increases your chances of getting gum disease or periodontal disease. If you’re concerned with your oral health and making sure your teeth are with you for years to come, braces can help make that happen.
Another benefit of getting braces is that it improves your confidence as you go through life. There are a lot of patients who find themselves smiling and laughing more openly after receiving orthodontic treatment, simply because they are proud of their beautiful straight smile.
Your Smile is Worth It
If you like the idea of healthier, straight teeth for the rest of your life and feel that braces are a good option for you, the new year is a great time to start treatment! Your teeth and gums will ultimately be healthier, and your smile will be straight and spectacular. Millions of people undergo orthodontic treatment, and nearly half of orthodontic patients are adults. Most of the time, orthodontic treatment is also affordable, and your treatment and payment plan can be tailored specifically to your unique needs.
