Are you trying to decide between aligning your smile with orthodontics and dealing with your crooked, unattractive smile for a lifetime? Well, we are here to tell you why you should choose orthodontics!

Orthodontic treatment is a beneficial and successful way to improve your appearance as well as your oral health. It can do many things for you and your smile, like:

Boost your self-esteem: It will finally eliminate the embarrassment you feel every time you look at yourself in the mirror or smile to take a picture.

Greatly improve your oral health: It will correct many problems, like crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, incorrect jaw positions, and jaw joint disorders. If these problems don’t get treated, additional problems could also occur, like impaired plaque removal, which could eventually lead to gum disease.

Give you the smile of your dreams: It will give you perfect results for a lifetime. Once your treatment is over, you will have a smile that you are proud of.

When it comes to the treatment itself, you have many options. Some of the options available in the orthodontic world today include:

Traditional braces
This is an appliance that consists of metal brackets and wires. The brackets are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth and are connected by the strong, durable wires. This is one of your cheaper orthodontic options that will successfully transform your smile throughout time.

Ceramic braces
Ceramic braces are also glued to the front surfaces of your teeth, but the appliance is tooth colored so it provides a natural appearance as you transform your smile.

Invisalign®
This appliance is a clean, plastic, and removable aligner that covers your teeth like a mouth guard would. With a series of multiple aligners, your smile will be improved and aligned in no time.

Lingual braces
Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces, but instead of the brackets being glued to the front surfaces of the teeth, they are glued to the back of your teeth.
