A Question Everyone Can Answer: Whom Do Braces Help?

Anyone, that’s who – anyone of almost any age that wants to improve his or her appearance and self-esteem. In fact, studies suggest that as many as 70% of all Americans would likely benefit from orthodontic treatments such as dental braces. Of course, besides providing a more attractive smile, orthodontic braces also address important functional issues:

So, answering the question as to who braces help is easy:

The fact is, no one finds missing or crooked teeth aesthetically pleasing; they are a liability – emotionally, physically, socially and economically. What’s worse, a study released by the American Academy of Periodontology found that periodontal disease (gum infection) could have serious, adverse effects on one’s health, including contributing to the development of heart disease.

There’s no reason that anyone has to live with bad teeth, an uneven bite and the consequences of the two. Not with braces and not when you have so many options as to color and placement. They’re not what they used to be. Today, dental braces are available in a wide variety of designer colors; can be placed on the front of the teeth; and, are available in metal, gold, or ceramic. And, with Invisalign®, there are even Invisible Braces. So, help is here, and braces are more fashionable, customizable and easier to live with than ever before.
