National Orthodontic Health Month starts in October! As you sip pumpkin spice lattes and bundle up in fall sweaters, remember that now is a great time to start orthodontic treatment.
All month long, we’ll be celebrating orthodontic health and sharing the benefits of investing in your smile. Here are just a few reasons why you should start orthodontic treatment today!
Overcrowded teeth can cause a myriad of problems. Without enough space between each tooth, you may find it difficult to properly brush and floss all surfaces. Spaces in between teeth can also become problematic, as they lead to overcrowding in other areas. By straightening your teeth, we can help prevent cavities from forming and improve your oral health.
Solve Bite Issues
If you or your child suffers from a misaligned bite, it can become hard to do simple tasks like chewing, speaking, or even just closing your mouth completely. With orthodontic treatment, we can improve your bite and help the teeth and jaws to correctly fit together. If left untreated, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and openbites can get worse later in life and require additional treatment. Even patients with sleep apnea may see a decrease in snoring and other symptoms thanks to orthodontic treatment.
Reduce TMJ Symptoms
Do you wake up with jaw soreness and dull headaches? You may suffer from TMJ disorder, which can cause you to grind your teeth while you sleep. With orthodontic treatment, we can help eliminate your symptoms and give you a healthy bite.
Have you ever felt embarrassed about your smile? We can help! With a healthy, aligned bite and straight teeth, you can feel confident in your smile for the first time ever! We truly believe that orthodontic treatment is a great investment in your overall happiness and well-being.
