Smiling is an important part of life and it’s something that so many people avoid simply because they don’t like the way their teeth look. When you smile, you instantly feel better about any situation and it’s the first thing someone will notice when they meet you. Unfortunately, orthodontic problems deter people from smiling when simple treatment would literally change their lives.

Why Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is essential for anyone who is dealing with tooth misalignment issues. Having crooked teeth is more than just feeling bad about yourself. Teeth that are severely misaligned can get in the way of your eating, speaking and oral hygiene. It’s important to seek orthodontic care when you feel your life can be changed by it and if you’re experiencing problems as a direct result of crookedness. The beauty about orthodontics is that it isn’t just for kids and teens. More adults are getting braces because of how beneficial they can be.

What to Expect from Your Orthodontic Care

First, you’ll have a consultation with the orthodontic professional to find the best treatment plan. You can choose from invisible braces to traditional metal braces. Your orthodontist will also do an exam and take x-rays of your teeth to determine which option is the right one for you. Once you have your consultation and begin treatment, you’ll need to make regular trips to their office to have your wires or trays changed. Typically, you’ll need to visit the orthodontic office once a month for at least one year while wearing braces.
