One of the most frequently asked questions that Bow Lane Dental receives regarding orthodontic treatment is: ‘is it really worth it?’
Of course, orthodontic treatment is discretionary, meaning that it often takes second place to more immediate luxuries, such as a new car or a holiday, because there is often more of a wait before you begin to see the long-term benefits that orthodontics can provide. However, from what has been documented in countless scientific studies as well as from our own first-hand experience here at Bow Lane Dental, the impact orthodontics can have on a person’s life is well worth the wait.
The health benefits you can gain as a result of undergoing orthodontic treatment are simply inarguable. Orthodontically corrected teeth are not only less susceptible to chipping and gradual damage, but their correct alignment means that they are easier to clean and therefore far less likely to decay or contract gum disease, gingivitis, and many more. Your teeth will be strengthened, meaning you will maintain a ‘good bite’; creating less strain on your jaw muscles, making chewing easier and aiding food digestion. Most would never even consider the possibility of orthodontics having an effect on their digestive health, but the health benefits of professional orthodontic treatment do in fact affect more than just your mouth!
One of the biggest benefits that not only you, but also the people around you will notice during and after orthodontic treatment is the change it has on your appearance. It has been proven that one of the first features people notice when they meet others for the first time is their smile, so why not make a great first impression with a beautiful smile? Whilst many beauty trends and styles will eventually go out of fashion, a set of straight, clean teeth is something that will be desirable throughout time!
No one should ever have to feel embarrassed about their natural features, just like no one should have to live unhappily due to their appearance. The unbeatable results that orthodontic treatment guarantees can completely change the look of your teeth, giving you a new reason to smile confidently and hold your head up high. With a brand new smile you will find a boost in your overall wellbeing due to naturally increased confidence and self-acceptance – orthodontic treatment really can be good for your mouth, body and mind!
At Bow Lane Dental we offer a range of orthodontic treatments that vary in their application but in today’s image-conscious world we have a number of invisible brace solutions that will help straighten and correct your teeth without the inconvenience or unattractiveness of traditional “traintrack” braces.
