Think braces are only for children or teens? This is no longer true. Now, more and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons. Some people want to improve their smiles or correct their bits. Other people are seeking to improve their health and boost their self-esteem. Everyday adults, children, and celebrities are getting braces. Your smile is one of the first things people notice. When you smile, you can have a positive impact on the people around you. However, if you are afraid to smile or you try to cover your teeth when you smile, you won’t have the same effect. Maybe you’ve always had crooked teeth, but you were not able to get braces when you were younger, or maybe you have serious jaw pain. Your oral health can also impact your ability to get a job and your social life.
Problems with your mouth may not be the only health concerns you face if your teeth are not straight or your bite is incorrect. You may suffer from headaches and earaches if you don’t seek treatment for your teeth and mouth problems. If you have been unintentionally biting your cheek or the roof of your mouth regularly, you may have an orthodontic issue and should come see us right away. Braces have evolved over the years. No longer do you need to suffer the embarrassment of being a metal mouth. The brackets used today are smaller, and no longer are the bands that wrap around the tooth used. Are you ready to smile a whole lot more? You don’t need a referral. Contact us today and see what braces option is right for you.
