“But do I really need braces?”

Hesitant adolescents, teens and even adults can sometimes drag their feet when it comes to orthodontic treatment, hoping that perhaps the crooked teeth or improper bites might work themselves out over time.

But when faced with certain ailments and problems, a diagnosis and a treatment plan from an experienced orthodontist can be the surest, safest and quickest route to lasting improvement.

Here are the top three reasons that people elect to get braces – and end up very happy that they partnered with their orthodontist on results that can last a lifetime, according to the Star Orthodontics team, Corpus Christi, Texas:

Achieve a beautiful, confident smile

Orthodontic treatment is more than simply a cosmetic procedure. The results can have a positive impact on an individual’s self-confidence and quality of life.

In our image-driven age, with selfies, Skype and social media part of everyday life, a bright, friendly smile is often the key to making a great first impression.

Improve your oral health for a lifetime

While a beautiful smile is cosmetically pleasing, a healthy smile is critical to lifelong health. Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to clean properly and contribute not only to tooth decay but also to more serious conditions that eventually lead to gum disease and tooth loss. Taking action now can avert problems down the road.

Improve the way your jaw and mouth function

Certain bite problems can make it difficult to chew and to make certain speech sounds. A poor bite can even trigger clenching and grinding patterns that lead abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissue or even chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck.

By establishing a healthy bite, orthodontic treatment may prevent or alleviate these problems. Left untreated, these issues can develop into far more serious problems that will be more costly to address.
