When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many patients wonder… is it worth it? What results will I see? What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment? These are all perfectly normal questions.
Braces can straighten teeth, close gaps in teeth, and better space out teeth, all resulting in a more confident smile. The assumption is that braces are primarily about improving appearance. But that's only one of the many benefits of straight teeth:
- Alleviate unnecessary wear and grinding that can lead to TMJ, ineffective chewing and digestion problems, and even neck pain or headaches
- Teeth are less prone to injury
- Improves oral health--teeth are easier to brush and floss
- Leads to healthier gums, better prevention of cavities and periodontal disease
An attractive smile can contribute to a positive self-image. When you come to Van Buren Family Dentistry for a consultation about braces, your dentist will conduct a comprehensive exam and discuss whether and what kind of braces are best for you. Call us at 479-474-9696 to schedule an appointment.
