In the United States, more than 4 million people wear braces—and for good reason! These orthodontic devices can transform your teeth, give you a more comfortable bite, and give you a beautiful smile that will boost your confidence. Here are just a few of the many reasons why people love braces.
1. Braces can solve almost any orthodontic issue.
Whether you have an underbite, overbite, or crossbite, braces have you covered! Braces are individualized to suit your needs, and can help to improve a surprisingly wide range of orthodontic issues. Therefore, if you’d really like to straighten your teeth, the chances are quite high that braces can help.
2. Braces enhance your natural teeth.
Rather than covering your smile with veneers, braces can actually fix your natural teeth! Not to mention, braces are cheaper than most of these transformative cosmetic dentistry procedures. Instead, this orthodontic treatment allows you to love the teeth you have!
3. You can express your own individual style!
Braces use a system of brackets and rubber bands to help move your teeth into place. You can choose from a variety of colors for your bands, so you can adapt your braces to match your own style. You can go bold—choosing a variety of colors or the colors or your favorite football team—or more discrete with subdued colors. The choice is yours.
4. No drills required.
We know that drills and needles are a common fear among dental patients. Thankfully, you don’t need to worry about that here! There is no drilling required for this orthodontic treatment.
5. Straighter teeth are healthier teeth.
These orthodontic devices don’t just greatly enhance your smile—they can improve your oral health too! Straighter teeth are easier to clean, which means you can more easily get rid of plaque and debris that could otherwise cause cavities or gingivitis. By straightening your teeth, you can greatly improve your oral health.
6. Braces can be discrete.
If you’d like to avoid the metal brackets on your teeth, you have options! For example, ClearCorrect straightens your teeth using clear, custom-made aligners. You’ll be able to straighten your teeth without anyone even noticing!
7. They are temporary devices with long-lasting benefits!
By following your orthodontist’s instructions carefully, you can straighten your teeth quickly and see drastic results. Better still, these results can last you a lifetime! The way we see it, this temporary treatment period is certainly worth it for these results.
8. The results are incredible!
With braces, you can get a beautiful straight smile you’ve always wanted. Not to mention, having straighter teeth can improve your facial profile, align your jaw, and fix your bite—drastically improving your appearance! You’ll love the results.
