Psychological Benefits - Smile with Confidence
In today's world a premium is placed on health and beauty. The "mouth is a focus of attention because we consistently communicate and express our feelings through it."* An attractive smile can make a positive difference and create a better first impression, affecting a child's acceptance and confidence in school or an adult's projected image in a job interview and throughout one's career. An improved smile via orthodontic treatment can greatly enhance one's self-esteem and enhanced self-esteem can improve one's quality of life."*

By age 35, three out of four adults have some form of periodontal disease. Crowded teeth and improper bites often increase the difficulty of maintaining oral health. Given time, poor dental (teeth) alignment may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment allows for easier maintenance of your teeth and can lead to better dental health.
