5 Benefits of Orthodontics

October is our favorite time of year, and it’s not just because candy overflows every grocery aisle. Rather, it’s Orthodontic Health Month, the best time of year to think about your smile!

As the world gears up to gorge themselves on Halloween candy and pumpkin spice lattes, we’re gearing up our practice, North Shore Orthodontics, to educate patients about the benefits of orthodontics and what they can do for your smile and self-esteem.

5 Unbelievable Benefits of Orthodontics:

BENEFIT 1: Your self-confidence will go through the roof.

Improving your smile can improve your self-confidence. It’s like putting on an outfit you know you look good in; only you can wear it every day, and it goes with everything. Not only that, when you share a smile with someone else, they’ll most likely smile right back. Studies have shown that the more you smile, the more positive you’ll feel about your life. So, why not make your smile one you’re proud to share with the world?

BENEFIT 2: Your teeth and gums tell a lot about your overall health. 

Good dental hygiene is a sign of your overall health. If your teeth are crowded, you can’t clean them properly. This can cause plaque to build up, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why it’s important to give your teeth some room if they’re crowded. The best way to do that is to get braces or Invisalign from our orthodontic practice in Smithtown.

BENEFIT 3: You’ll be able to speak more clearly. 

People who are ashamed of their teeth are more likely to speak with their mouth closed, which can make it sound like they’re mumbling. In addition, poorly aligned teeth can cause you to lisp. With the right orthodontic treatment from Dr. Craig Smith, you’ll not only speak more clearly; you’ll also want to smile more when you do speak.

BENEFIT 4: Your food will go down more easily.

I know what you’re thinking, “riiiiight.” But, it’s true. When your teeth are in the correct position you’re able to chew more effectively. That means your body doesn’t have to work as hard to digest it!

BENEFIT 5: You’ll look 5 years younger.

A great smile is better than Botox! With a smile that’s straight and white, you can look up to 5 years younger. No needles. No working out. That’s reason enough to get orthodontic treatment at any age. Dr. Craig Smith is passionate about the fact that it is never too late to perfect your smile. Make sure to ask about our adult treatment options and whitening!

If you’re thinking about doing something incredible for yourself this year, think about giving yourself the gift of a perfect smile. It’s not only great for your health; it’s also great for your self-worth.

Wishing you all a great fall!
