Wondering if braces could actually be what you need to get the smile you want?braces

Naples, FL, dentist, Dr. JW Valentine, provides everyone with the orthodontic treatment they’ve been looking for. Could braces be right for you? Let’s find out!

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want to fill those gaps between teeth?
  • Do you hate that some teeth are crooked or out of alignment?
  • Do you have teeth that are crowded or overlapping one another?
  • Do you have an underbite, overbite, open bite or crossbite?
  • Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because it isn’t straight?

If you said “yes” to any of these questions then you could be an ideal candidate for braces. Anyone, from children to adults, can be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment.  Naples, FL, general dentist makes it possible to get everything from traditional braces to clear braces to nearly invisible options like Invisalign. If you are an adult or older teen who might feel embarrassed by wearing braces then you’ll want to talk to us about whether Invisalign is the best approach for you.

Why should you straighten your smile?

Besides the obvious benefit of having a straight beautiful smile that makes you feel more confident, a straight smile is also a healthier smile. Think about it—If you have teeth that are crowded and overlapping it can be much harder to clean all surfaces of your teeth. When this happens, you could leave plaque and food behind, even if you brush really well. By getting a straighter smile you could reduce your chances of developing stains, decay and even gum disease.

As if this wasn’t enough reason to straighten your smile already, if you have misaligned teeth then certain teeth may be taking on more pressure from the jaws then other teeth. Over time, this can wear away enamel and weaken the tooth. By aligning teeth through braces we can also prevent excessive wear and tear, as well as potential fractures or chips in your smile.
