October is National Orthodontic Health Month

With autumn in full swing, October is one of the best times of the year. And with the holidays and New Year’s just around the corner, there’s no better time to start orthodontic treatment.

Here’s why you should consider orthodontics to celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month.

Orthodontics Can Boost Your Confidence

One of the best things about orthodontics is that it can give you a boost in confidence. If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, straightening them can make a big difference.

For kids in school, starting treatment can help them feel better about themselves and make new friends. And for adults, it can enhance their appearance, career prospects, and social life.

Orthodontics Can Improve Your Oral Health

Another great reason to start orthodontic treatment is for the sake of your oral health. Crooked and crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Straightening your teeth will make it easier to keep them clean and healthy. It will also evenly distribute the force of your bite, which can relieve pain in your jaw and neck.

In addition, orthodontics can treat more severe issues like TMJ. If left untreated, people with jaw issues can experience a lot of pain and discomfort throughout their lives.

Orthodontic Treatment May Save You Money in the Long Run

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, you may be at risk for more serious dental problems down the road. Untreated crowding, underbites, overbites, and crossbites can lead to tooth loss, gum disease, and other issues.

By getting orthodontic treatment now, you can avoid more costly dental problems in the future. In some cases, orthodontics can help you keep your natural teeth for life. And the earlier you start treatment, the better.

Addressing dental and bite issues in children by the age of seven can help avoid more serious problems later on. So if you have a child who’s due for an orthodontic evaluation, now is the time to schedule one.

Orthodontics is for Everyone

Contrary to popular belief, orthodontics isn’t just for kids and teens. In fact, about 25% of orthodontic patients are adults. So if you’re considering orthodontics but think you’re too old, think again. There’s no age limit on orthodontic treatment, and it’s never too late to improve your smile.

Invisalign® and clear braces are popular choices for adult patients because they’re less noticeable than metal braces. And with new technology, treatment times are shorter than ever before.

Conclusion

As National Orthodontic Health Month, October is the perfect time to start treatment. Whether you’re looking to boost your confidence, improve your oral health, or save money, orthodontics can help. Don’t delay treatment because you think you’re too old for braces. Orthodontics is for everyone. Use this month as an excuse to begin the journey to your best smile.
