It would be great if everyone was born with perfectly straight teeth, but that’s not how life works. That’s why you could walk into any middle or high school on any given day and find countless students wearing braces.
For adults, braces are much less common. That’s because once you’re a professional, orthodontic treatment just doesn’t seem worth the investment or sacrifice because you’ll stand out among your colleagues.
That’s not the case, however, when you get orthodontic treatment at Tieken Smiles. We offer Invisalign and ClearCorrect, short-term orthodontic treatment options for adults who long for a straight smile but don’t want to wear traditional metal braces.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect aren’t just discreet. They also can give you a beautiful, straight smile by this time next year. That means you could be enjoying holiday parties next year with the gorgeous smile you wished you’d had this year.
The most obvious reason to straighten crooked teeth is the way it changes your appearance and the way you feel about yourself. The boost to your self-confidence when you love the way your smile looks can have a huge impact on your life.
Every time you see your teeth in the mirror and in pictures, it momentarily conjures negative thoughts and energy that weigh you down, even if for a moment. But that builds up over time.
A straight smile will rid you of those negative, self-deprecating thoughts and give you the confidence to pursue your dreams and goals.
Improve Your Oral Health
Crooked, overcrowded, and overlapping teeth are harder to keep clean. Brushing and flossing is important, but even the most diligent best practices aren’t enough to get in between the nooks and crannies in your mouth that crooked teeth create.
That means a higher chance for developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Straight teeth, however, make it much easier to achieve and maintain good oral health. Daily oral hygiene is less complicated when you’re able to clean the surfaces and between each tooth thoroughly.
Avoid Alignment Problems
When your teeth are in their proper position, you’re less likely to create painful issues with your bite. This can help you avoid muscle tension in your jaw, mouth sores, and gum irritation.
While our short-term orthodontics like Invisalign and ClearCorrect aren’t right for people who have serious malocclusion issues, having straight teeth can help you avoid to avoid the problems that come when crooked teeth don’t align properly.
Protect Your Teeth From Wear
When your teeth are out of alignment, you’re more likely to damage them over the years. Not from injuries or accidents, though. It’s actually from the wear and tear of everyday use when they don’t touch properly. It causes unnecessary stress on your upper and lower teeth every time you chew your food.
Crooked teeth also make it more likely that you will chip away at your enamel just because of the way your teeth touch in certain places that are problematic.
Make A Great First Impression
You’ve heard the saying about how you only have one chance to make a good impression. Your appearance plays a huge part in how well you’re able to do that. You want to present yourself well with a nice hairstyle and outfit, but your smile is important, too.
In fact, studies have even shown that straight teeth is something people associate with success, intelligence, and professionalism. While we’re not able to promise you’ll have all those qualities by coming to our dental office, we can promise you a straighter smile! The rest is up to you!
