When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many patients wonder… is it worth it? What results will I see? What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment? These are all perfectly normal questions.
Braces can straighten teeth, close gaps in teeth, and better space out teeth, all resulting in a more confident smile. The assumption is that braces are primarily about improving appearance. But that's only one of the many benefits of straight teeth:
- Alleviate unnecessary wear and grinding that can lead to TMJ, ineffective chewing and digestion problems, and even neck pain or headaches
- Teeth are less prone to injury
- Improves oral health--teeth are easier to brush and floss
- Leads to healthier gums, better prevention of cavities and periodontal disease
An attractive smile can contribute to a positive self-image. When you come to Dental Care of St. Joseph for a consultation about braces, your dentist will conduct a comprehensive exam and discuss whether and what kind of braces are best for you. Call us at 816-279-3300 to schedule an appointment.
The Myobrace® System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intraoral appliances that are worn for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping.Read more about Myobrace
