Young woman with bracesYour confidence is directly linked to how you feel about your appearance, like having attractive teeth. Unfortunately, one-third of adults do not like how their smiles look, causing them to feel insecure. Often, the biggest concern involves alignment problems, like overcrowding and gaps. Braces offer the ideal way to straighten your smile while giving your confidence a boost. By correcting alignment issues, you will not just hold your head up high with increased self-esteem, but improved oral health as well.

Benefit from a Straight Smile

Properly aligned teeth are a simple way to help you look and feel your best. However, braces are also an excellent investment for your oral health. When the teeth are in their ideal positions, they are easier to clean, reducing your risk for tooth decay, gum, disease, and dental emergencies. Not to mention, it can even help to resolve the complications of TMJ disorders that are due to an improper bite.

Now, you have multiple options when it comes to orthodontics. In addition to traditional metal braces, you can also get the straight smile you have always wanted using clear aligners.

Benefit from Traditional Braces

Traditional metal braces have been the trusted orthodontic system for well over 100 years as they are effective for treating even the most complex alignment and bite issues. Wires and brackets are attached to the teeth to gradually pull them into position. Now, new advancements make them less noticeable than ever before, such as with the use of tooth-colored brackets and wires. You will achieve the results you want using an affordable and convenient solution.

Benefit from Invisalign

If you do not want to further add to your insecurities by using traditional braces, Invisalign may be right for you. This system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth to gradually move them into position. Since they are clear and removable, it offers a discreet and less restrictive treatment when compared to metal braces. In addition, the treatment time is often shorter, which is about 12 months. While they may cost more, they allow you to enjoy a sophisticated option. However, Invisalign cannot be used for everyone. If you have significant alignment issues, you may need traditional braces.
