Choosing to straighten your crooked, misaligned teeth is a big decision some people have a hard time making. If you could be considered as one of these people, we are happy to tell you why you should take the first steps of finally achieving the smile of your dreams.

Orthodontic treatment does many things for you and your smile. First, it can finally eliminate the embarrassment you feel every time you look in the mirror or smile to take a picture. It is a great self-esteem booster, and it helps you finally love your appearance. Second, it can greatly improve your oral health. The treatment can correct many problems, like teeth misalignment, overbites, underbites, jaw joint disorders, and improper jaw positions, which will definitely benefit you in the future. If these problems don’t get treated, other issues can develop, like tooth decay and gum disease. Third, it can give you perfect results for a lifetime. Once your treatment is over, you will never feel embarrassed or ashamed of your smile again.

When it comes to your orthodontic treatment, you have many options to choose from, including:

Traditional braces: This appliance consists of metal brackets and wires and it is glued to the front surfaces of your teeth.

Ceramic braces: This appliance consists of tooth-colored brackets and wires that give you a natural look as you shift your teeth. Like traditional braces, the brackets are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth and are connected by wires.

Invisalign®: Invisalign is a mouth guard-like aligner that covers your teeth and changes your smile. This aligner is clear, plastic, and removable and is virtually invisible.

Lingual braces: This appliance is similar to traditional braces, but instead of the brackets being glued to the front surfaces of your teeth, they will be glued to the back of your teeth so no one can see them.
