Can orthodontics change your life?

Every day more and more people are enjoying the benefits and advantages of their orthodontic treatment. It is no wonder, therefore, that we say that orthodontics can change your life.

There is a strange and confusing belief that orthodontics is only a matter of esthetics, but, although many people do not know it, this is not so. Orthodontic treatment encompasses many aspects, including improving the appearance of the smile. So what else can orthodontics do for you?

Join us, we will explain it to you throughout this post.

A good occlusion makes your day-to-day life easier

Dental occlusion, i.e. the way the upper and lower teeth fit together when biting, is very important for oral health.

Those who have misaligned teeth and a bad bite will need in-office treatment to fix it. In most cases, these occlusion problems can be solved with orthodontics or orthognathic surgery.

We should not ignore malocclusion, since in the short and long term it can cause negative consequences such as:

  • Headaches
  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Discomfort while eating
  • Difficulties in pronunciation
  • Heavy digestion
  • Breathing problems

Correcting occlusion problems will allow you to enjoy mealtime as normal, allowing you to grind food and digest it more easily. In addition, those headaches you were having may disappear. This is because many headaches are caused by various oral problems, including dental malocclusion.

With orthodontics your teeth will align and fit together, avoiding all the problems we have told you about. This will make your day-to-day life much easier.

Feel good about your smile: Smile with confidence again.

On a daily basis, smiling is our way of communicating joy, empathy, solidarity, affection, fulfillment… What happens if all these positive feelings are kept inside us because we don’t dare to smile?

When our smile does not please us, when it is misaligned and makes us insecure, when we want to smile but do not dare because we are embarrassed, we are forcing ourselves not to show that positive part of our life.

Having healthy, aligned teeth can help increase self-esteem and self-confidence. In addition, smiling with confidence communicates to our family, friends and work that we have positive feelings and sensations. Even in new environments with unfamiliar people, a smile is the main letter of introduction.

For all these reasons, orthodontics can change your life.

If you recognize yourself in these characteristics: headaches, dental wear, misaligned teeth, heavy digestions, incomplete bite, insecurity with your smile… orthodontics may be what you need.

Consult us in our clinic, we will help you achieve the smile you want. You just have to take the step and contact us. Our orthodontists will assess the condition of your mouth and propose a customized orthodontic treatment.
