is orthodontic treatment worth it?If you are interested in starting orthodontic treatment, you’ve probably been researching different types of braces that are available. Metal braces, clear aligners, accelerated treatment – there are many options to choose from. But is orthodontic treatment worth it? Our orthodontist says yes, and explains the myriad of benefits that come with straightening your teeth here.

What Options Are There?

Depending on your case, there are a few options to choose from for your orthodontic treatment. Traditional metal braces are the go-to method, as they are affordable, effective, and reliable. They can treat mild to severe orthodontic cases and fix most alignment issues.

However, if you don’t like the look of metal braces and only have a mild to moderate case that needs to be corrected, clear aligner trays may be a good option. These are discreet plastic trays that gradually move your teeth into place. There are other options that may be available for you; talk with our orthodontist today!

Make sure you follow our orthodontist’s instructions after you have completed your treatment. Wearing a retainer after you’ve straightened your teeth is essential for maintaining the beautiful smile you worked hard for. 

What Can Be Treated?

Braces, aligners, headgear, and expanders can all treat misaligned bites, crossbites, crooked teeth, or gapped teeth. For more severe jaw issues, deep underbites, deep overbites, or facial abnormalities, you may need surgery before starting braces or aligners to get the desired outcome. 

A Lifetime of Smiles

The benefits of completing orthodontic treatment are not only cosmetic but also physical! Crooked teeth or a misaligned bite can lead to grinding and clenching, which irritates the gums and increases the risk of gum disease and broken teeth. Additionally, fixing facial structure issues, overbites and underbites can help relieve breathing problems like sleep apnea or blocked airways, which improves overall health!
