Lifetime Investment into Your Dental Care
Orthodontic treatment is a financial investment, but it is also a lifetime investment into your oral health care. Correcting misalignment, also known as malocclusion, can provide positive benefits for your overall health. Orthodontic care can assist with proper jaw growth, improved chewing and speaking, and help prevent gum disease.
In the long term, orthodontic care can provide an increased sense of self confidence with your new smile and better oral hygiene overall. After receiving orthodontic treatment, you’re more likely to see lower costs of care and healthier teeth and gums when you continue visiting your dentist for your routine cleaning appointments. You won’t be able to stop smiling!
Reduces the Cost of Dental Care
Orthodontic treatment, such as metal braces or InvisalignⓇ, can close those small gaps in between your teeth that can trap plaque and tartar. If that plaque and tartar builds up in those gaps, it can lead to the development of cavities, leading to tooth decay and potentially gum disease.
Any small dental issue has the potential to become a larger problem later and this can result in higher costs down the road. Resolving those issues with orthodontic treatment can help you avoid those increased healthcare costs. There are a variety of orthodontic treatment options available to help you achieve the smile of your dreams and prevent higher healthcare costs in the future.
Improving Overall Dental Health
Since orthodontic intervention can eliminate those small spaces while straightening your bite, it can help reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can relieve the pressure caused by overcrowded teeth and tension in the jaw that develops from misalignment, bruxism, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
With the help of orthodontic care, the new, straight position of your smile allows your teeth to evenly absorb the pressures of eating, drinking, and talking, as well as help relieve tension in your jaw and prevent bruxism. Even with orthodontic treatment, it is important to continue to brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and maintain regular visits to your dentist to ensure your new, healthy smile lasts a lifetime.
