New Year, New Smile
This New Year chose the gift of a perfect smile! From a cleaner mouth to a boost of confidence, here are just a few benefits of moving straight to a great smile at Havener Orthodontics.
1. Easier to Clean
Having teeth that are crowded can be a challenge to keep clean. Wearing braces can help prevent tooth decay by aligning your teeth so they are easy to clean and maintain.
2. Less Dental Work
Orthodontics can help save you money in the long run by reducing the amount of dental work you need. This benefit of braces can be tied into teeth being easier to keep clean. If you can clean all of the surfaces of your teeth properly, you will be less prone to dental work such as fillings, root canals and crowns. Sometimes, spaces from missing teeth can be closed with orthodontics, saving you thousands of dollars in costs related to implants or bridges.
3. Reduced Wear and Risk of Injury
Orthodontics can help bring your teeth into a more stable position to reduce the risk of injury. Teeth that protrude or stick out more than they should are at a higher risk of being injured, which can lead to costly repairs or even loss of teeth.
4. Better Function
Teeth that fit together correctly help with biting, chewing and even speaking. Another benefit of straight teeth is that they play a key role in making sure jaws are aligned and teeth fit together in harmony with one another.
5. Increased Confidence
According to the American Association of Orthodontics, more than four million people in the U.S. wear braces. Braces are no longer just for teenagers, as 25% of people who wear braces are adults. At Havener Orthodontics we see patients of all ages who want to change their smile and feel more confident during their daily life. Our oldest patient in braces is 78 years old!
