Phyllis Diller once said, “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight” ; this sentiment could not be more true!
Imagine how different your life would be if smiling, eating, or speaking caused you pain, discomfort, or even embarrassment. Thankfully, we live in a world where anyone can obtain the smile they deserve!
The Importance of Braces
The health benefits of braces are abundant and help explain the importance of braces. Crooked, misplaced, and crowded teeth make cleaning much more difficult, thus causing an enormous risk of tooth decay – which is not only unsightly and painful, but also affects the overall health of the rest of your body as well. In some cases, though, a person with what would be considered “straight” teeth may have been told they are a candidate for braces because of their bite. This isn’t something to be taken lightly or ignored – an overbite, underbite, or other jaw misalignments can not only become incredibly painful later in life, but they can also affect wear and tear on your teeth. Of course, abnormal wear and tear can cause a tooth to be cracked, can wear away at enamel, and cause a number of life-long problems to face. With all of these facts added up, the time spent with braces is very minimal compared to a lifetime of dental problems.
There are times when braces are used for vanity’s sake, and that’s ok! A confident smile can make a world of difference in one’s life and can effect job performance, social interaction, and much more. It is proven that lack of confidence can have a very strong negative effect on someone’s life, and no one should feel the need to hide behind their smile. Patients of all ages can obtain the look they want, and with so many new options available, there is no reason not to speak to your dentist about which option suits you best. You deserve the best smile possible!
