FAQWhy Should I Get Braces?

Whether you are an adult or a teenager, getting braces can be a pretty intimidating treatment. Many people wish to steer clear of orthodontic treatment altogether, as they do not wish to have a mouth full of metal for an extended period of time. The problem with this is that the benefits of having orthodontic treatment are overlooked by the short-term discomfort.

Advancements Leave You With Clear Options

So the metal wires are what are keeping you or your child from receiving orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic technology has improved so much over the last few years, enabling us to provide Invisalign clear aligners and clear ceramic braces that are much more aesthetically pleasing than the traditional metal braces. These options will allow you to smile with confidence as we stimulate the movement of your teeth into a healthy position.

Health Benefits You Will Receive

Depending on the type of malocclusion you have, you may receive a number of benefits through orthodontic treatment. The most obvious effect of treatment will be the aesthetic improvement of your smile. In addition to a beautiful smile, properly aligned teeth will make your teeth much easier to clean and thereby reducing the likelihood of developing gum disease. If you’re an athlete, getting teeth in their proper positions will decrease the chances of chipping your teeth. Speech impediments may also be corrected with braces, however, not all speech problems are caused from bad bites.

What About The Cost Of Braces?

This is a perfectly legitimate concern, as many medical procedures can cost an arm and a leg. At Ward Orthodontics, we want to help each and every patient afford the beautiful smile they need and deserve. If cost is your primary concern, take a look at our Financial and Insurance page for more information.
