If you think that your time has passed for orthodontic treatment, you may not realize the detrimental effects that crooked teeth can have on your oral health, appearance, and comfort. With today’s aesthetically pleasing solutions for orthodontic care and the rising popularity of adult orthodontics, however, it is easier than ever to correct your smile at any age.
Straight Teeth Make You Look Younger
Instead of consulting a plastic surgeon or dermatologist for age-defying treatments, you might call your dentist to ask about your orthodontic options. Straighter teeth and a properly aligned bite will give you better bone structure along the jaw line and take years off your face. Followed by a tooth whitening treatment, orthodontic care may be just what you need to fight off the aging process.
Treatment Now Can Save You Money Down the Road
Orthodontic issues are not static, so they may get worse over time, leading to costly restorative treatment. The cost of orthodontic care today may only be a fraction of what you pay in the future to repair extensive decay, bone loss, or uneven wear of the tooth surfaces resulting from untreated orthodontic issues.
No One Has to Know You Wear Braces
Options like Invisalign clear plastic aligners can allow you to keep orthodontic treatment your little secret. When Invisalign aligners are in your mouth, they are barely noticeable, so most people will not know that you are wearing them. Plus, Invisalign does not come with any of the pain, maintenance, and discomfort of traditional braces, so you will not have to deal with any downtime from your orthodontic care.
