Recent research has found that having a full set of straight teeth can significantly improve your quality of life by boosting self-esteem. Those with a nice smile are perceived as more successful, wealthier and more likely to land a job than those with crooked teeth. The personal, social and professional benefits for many are amazing and for some can be life changing.
Orthodontics (alignment of the teeth and jaws) is much more than purely an aesthetic procedure; there are health benefits too. Straight teeth are not only easier to clean, but also function more efficiently and are likelier to last a lifetime. The modern goals of orthodontics not only involve straightening teeth, but also giving you the best facial aesthetics possible, and teeth which will last a lifetime.
Thanks to increased health awareness and advances in dental care that allow us to keep our teeth longer, more adults are choosing to seek orthodontic treatment to improve their dental health and appearance. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you could benefit from getting your teeth straightened. If you have unhealthy gums, a lot of gum recession, or bone loss, braces may not be recommended because the pressure they put on your gums could cause unfavorable complications.
Technology in orthodontics has also changed and developed in modern times. At Simply Orthodontics, we use one of the most discreet and efficient cosmetic braces available, giving you all the advantages of effective and aesthetic treatment. Among other technological benefits for our patients, our laser iTero scanner eliminates the need for the lengthy and uncomfortable impressions, providing a highly accurate three-dimensional model of your teeth. Three-dimensional imaging has now become a reality in orthodontics. The latest cone beam computed tomography allows accurate 3-D images of the jaws, allowing us to visualize all your teeth, even if they are unerupted.
Everybody deserves the opportunity to have a beautiful smile, yet no two orthodontic problems are the same. Your orthodontist at Simply Orthodontics will customize a treatment plan tailored to your teeth, jaws, and face.
