Benefits of getting braces

When you look in the mirror, you are not happy with what you see. Orthodontic issues are holding you back. You don’t like to smile for the camera and you’re not comfortable in social situations. You are self-conscious at work about your teeth, always wondering if others are noticing the problems with your smile. You want to be able to flash your pearly whites and see properly aligned teeth that really shine.

Braces could be the answer that you are looking for to give yourself that boost. They’re not just for teens and there are so many options that can help you to find the right treatment plan for you. Learn more about the benefits of getting braces at our office in Oak Lawn.

The door is open to many possibilities

Gone are the days when your only option for braces meant metal brackets and wires. While you can still go with that alternative to adjust your teeth, you can also try braces that are more discreet so that no one will know you are even having orthodontic treatment. You can choose ceramic braces that are clear or the same color of your teeth, making your treatment less obvious.

Invisalign® is another popular choice that involves wearing aligners made out of clear plastic. They are customized in order to fit your teeth perfectly. They are changed on a regular basis as your teeth adjust. You can take them out if you are going to a special event or you are involved in contact sports, but you need to wear them for at least 22 hours in order to have the best results. You can take them out to keep your teeth clean. They are not noticeable, but they will help you to have the smile you have always wanted to see.

You can have a healthier mouth

Once you have had braces and your teeth are in the proper position, you will find that it is much easier to keep your teeth clean. Clean teeth are healthy teeth that you can keep through your golden years. Shifting your teeth into the proper position can also help you to avoid TMJ disorders that result from a strain on the joint in your jaw. You can also hold off problems like sleep apnea, ensuring that your airway remains open when you are asleep at night.
