Many of the patients who have visited us throughout the years have asked, “Is it really necessary to get braces?” The answer may be different for each person. We all have dentition that is unique to us. The team at Smile Center has the experience to help you come to an educated decision about orthodontic treatment. We are able to handle most of our patients’ needs right here in our office, so they benefit from continuity of care.
Three distinct improvements can result from treatment with braces from your dentist in Buffalo:
- Improved oral health
- Improved function
- Improved appearance
Although we tend to place a great deal of importance on the appearance of the smile, the health of your smile will benefit you the most throughout your life. When teeth are crowded together or spaced too far apart, oral health may suffer because of poor oral hygiene. This lack of hygiene may not be your fault. It is extremely difficult to clean hard-to-reach places adequately. Bite issues can lead to dental problems and an increased likelihood of injury to a tooth or teeth. By correcting the bite and moving teeth into proper alignment, oral health can benefit.
Depending on the specific issues with bite, chewing and speaking may be hindered. Misaligned bite can also cause a person to grind or clench his or her teeth while sleeping, or cause undue stress on the joints of the jaw. By straightening teeth and correcting the bite, we establish a healthy oral environment in which the force of chewing is evenly distributed, and all teeth function the way they should.
Your most beautiful smile
It is a verifiable fact that correcting misalignment has a dramatic positive impact on a person’s self-confidence. Numerous research studies indicate the value of an attractive smile in both social and professional settings. Appearance does matter, and has a role in how a person is treated by his or her peers. This is true no matter what the age of the patient may be. While it may be easy to think of orthodontic treatment as just cosmetic, but there are wonderful effects to self-esteem when the smile is in its most beautiful condition.
At Smile Center, we love helping people achieve their healthiest, most pleasing smiles. Contact us today to learn more about our orthodontic services.
