At Castilla Orthodontics, we understand what a commitment orthodontic treatment is, but we also understand the priceless value of a beautiful smile and a healthy bite. There are many health-related and social reasons for receiving orthodontic treatment. Here are a few on the top of our list:
Put your best face forward
No matter your age, your smile is one of your most important physical features. Your smile makes the right introduction at that job interview, first date, high school reunion or neighborhood block party. In fact, research shows that just smiling invites others to smile and laugh, and encourages friendly behavior in both the person smiling and the people around that person. Your smile is your first presentation of who you are to the world.
Believe in yourself
Research shows that a beautiful smile leads to higher self-esteem and greater self confidence. When it comes to teenage patients in particular, the importance of a healthy, confident smile cannot be overstated. Making the investment in a teenager’s healthy smile can play a huge factor in their overall success out in that big world of school, college, work, and making friends.
Your teeth are all you get for a lifetime of biting and chewing, laughing and talking. It’s important that they fit together well to avoid harmful wear and to ensure optimal food ingestion. Straight teeth may also help reduce your risk of periodontal (gum) disease, since straight teeth are easier to clean. In fact, having a good bite and proper tooth alignment is such an important part of your health, it is usually part of any comprehensive dental health care plan. Orthodontic treatment is truly an investment in your future health.
