5 Reasons Getting Braces is the Best New Year’s Resolution

“New Year, new me”, right?

Or at least that’s what we all tell ourselves until the 5th of January. Many New Year’s resolutions consist of breaking habits or taking up new ones and most of us think that we will adopt a new lifestyle effortlessly and overnight. And that’s why it is time for you to set realistic and achievable goals, such as enhancing your smile, increasing your confidence, and taking care of your oral health. If you’re not yet determined to make braces one of your goals for 2022, here are 5 reasons why you should do it:

Better overall health

Having crooked or unaligned teeth poses risks to your overall physical health, such as gum disease, tooth decay, or cavities, since they’re harder to clean and bacteria can thus easily grow. By aligning your teeth using braces, you’ll be able to keep a much better oral hygiene and overall health.

Say goodbye to bad breath

Teeth are better cleaned when they are aligned and have correct spacing. Consequently, this will help reduce bad breath, caused mainly by growing bacteria between the teeth.

Become more self-confident

Feeling better about your smile and not having bad breath are very positive benefits of following an orthodontic treatment. But being confident and smiling as often as you like has no price. Many patients are shy and cover their mouths when they smile, others simply refrain from smiling. After your orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign® clear aligners is over, you will notice how often you smile and how good you feel about it.

Reduce pain

Crooked or unaligned teeth can also cause jaw-clenching, lip-biting, or not chewing food properly and all these problems can lead to headaches and jaw pain. By aligning your teeth with braces, you might experience less pain and fewer issues when eating or speaking.

Correct your bite

By aligning your teeth using braces, you’ll notice many benefits at the end of your orthodontic treatment: you might be able to sleep, eat, and speak much better, and as we pointed out before, your oral hygiene will be amazingly improved.

Our braces at Contemporary Orthodontics

Once you’ve decided to embark on this amazing adventure, you must decide which type of braces are right for you. But don’t worry, you will not have to make that decision on your own: when you’re ready to talk we will guide you during a free smile consultation with Dr. Maria Yazji in one of her offices in Weston, Brickell, or West Miami. Before that, here are the types of orthodontic services we offer at our clinic, besides the regular metal ones:

We are experts in esthetic braces, to help many who are self-aware and prefer to stay on the discreet side.

Invisalign® is one of the most popular braces all over the world because they allow you to continue with your lifestyle while straightening your teeth. Another good and discreet option is Incognito® lingual braces, they are hidden because they are placed behind your teeth, no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell them. We also offer ceramic braces, which have a similar color as your own teeth and work the same way as regular metal braces. They’re not as invisible as the other two, but they’re not so obvious.
