Top 4 Reasons to Visit The Orthodontist

While many people believe that only children and teenagers need to see orthodontists, the fact is that dental professionals routinely provide their specialized orthodontic services to people of all ages, including adults.

Mom and KidThere are four very good reasons to visit an orthodontist:

  • To reduce potentially having future dental problems.
  • To improve your self-esteem.
  • To fulfill your dream of having a straight, beautiful smile.
  • To put your child on the right path to a healthy, life-long smile.

1. Reduce The Potential for Future Dental Problems

Common orthodontic problems, such as protruding teeth, crowding and spaces between teeth can all contribute to the development of tooth decay and gum disease. When an orthodontist treats these types of common dental problems, better overall oral and dental health can be achieved and maintained.

2. Improve Self-Esteem

It's important to feel good about yourself. If you tend to hide your smile because you are not happy with how it looks, an orthodontist can improve your smile by addressing your particular dental problems or issues. Individuals who have undergone orthodontic treatment smile with complete confidence once they are done wearing braces or aligners because they are proud of how their smiles look.

3. Fulfill Your Dream Of Having A Straight, Beautiful Smile

If you are an adult who is self-conscious about your smile because your teeth are crooked, protruding or have spaces between them, seeing an orthodontist makes good sense. Braces are definitely not just for kids anymore. There are many great orthodontic treatment options perfect for adults including:

A growing number of patients we see at our Vienna and Great Falls, VA orthodontic practice are adults who have decided to improve their smiles and overall dental and oral health.

4. Put Your Child On The Right Path To A Healthy, Life-Long Smile

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that every child should see an orthodontist at age 7. While this may seem young, it is at this age when an orthodontist can properly identify any possible orthodontic problems. If your child does require treatment, this early start can reduce the time he or she spends in treatment and can make future treatment less invasive and costly. Plus, when seen by an orthodontist while he or she is young, you are helping your child achieve and maintain a straight, beautiful and healthy smile that can last a lifetime.
