Who needs orthodontic treatment? In a word – everyone! Individuals of all ages – including adults, teens, and children – who weren’t born with naturally straight teeth can benefit from braces at 360 Orthodontics. And the reasons reach far beyond the aesthetics. Though a more beautiful smile is certainly one of the most visible perks of straightening your teeth, braces also deliver a host of other, equally important health-related benefits, including:
- Optimal oral health. If you have crooked teeth, or your mouth is overcrowded, there are innumerable crevices for bacteria to breed. This means you’re more likely to experience tooth decay and periodontal disease. By straightening your teeth with braces, you’re able to clean them more thoroughly, increasing and preserving your oral health.
- Properly aligned jaw. It’s important that your jaw and bite are properly aligned – two things that braces accomplish. If they aren’t, you run the risk of developing TMJ, which can lead to limited jaw mobility, headaches, pain, discomfort and nerve damage, among other things.
- The ability to speak, eat and chew with ease. Chewing and speaking comfortably requires straight teeth and an aligned jaw. Otherwise, you could find yourself biting the inside of your cheeks and your tongue more often. When you’re fitted for your braces at 360 Orthodontics, Dr. Partovi will make sure your treatment results in your ability to speak, chew and eat with ease.
- Enhanced self-esteem. There’s no question that crooked, misaligned and protruding teeth can have a negative impact on your self-esteem. But once you have braces, you can smile with confidence, knowing that you’re flashing straight and beautiful teeth to the world.
At 360 Orthodontics, we know that having beautiful, healthy and functioning teeth can change your entire life for the better – improving your oral health, enhancing your quality of life, boosting your self-esteem and delivering a more attractive appearance. So whether you’ve struggled with crooked teeth since you were young, or you want to give your child or teen straight teeth for a lifetime, please take a look at the treatment options we have available for different age groups to see which one is the right fit for your family.
The benefits of getting braces as a teen
Dr. Partovi, along with the American Association of Orthodontists, recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening by age seven. By that age, Dr. Partovi will be able to clearly recognize potential issues and correct them before they transform into more serious problems. This makes treatment less complex, and saves you and your child time, as well as money.
For millions of teens, braces are a right of passage – a way to achieve straight and attractive teeth so they can smile with confidence throughout their lives. At 360 Orthodontics, Dr. Partovi loves catering to her teen patients, helping them come to terms with the prospect of wearing braces and offering guidance as they choose an orthodontic treatment that will provide them with the beautiful smiles they deserve.
It’s never too late to achieve the healthy, beautiful and functioning smile you’ve always wanted. More adults than ever before are opting to straighten their teeth with braces, and Dr. Partovi is proud to offer them treatment options specifically designed for mature mouths.
