At CFSS Orthodontics, our mission is to help patients throughout Syracuse, Fulton, and Fayetteville, NY achieve beautiful, healthy smiles through convenient orthodontic treatment. Many of our patients pursue a new smile for cosmetic reasons, and while this is an important result of orthodontic treatment, it’s far from the only benefit of a straight smile. In fact, adjusting your smile with braces or Invisalign can impart a whole host of benefits onto your personal and professional life.
Why Should I Consider Straightening My Smile?
Many of us have crooked teeth or other imperfections in our smile, and if that’s the case for you, you’ve probably thought about straightening your smile with orthodontics at some point. But orthodontic treatment can do more than simply fix imperfections in your current smile. Achieving a new smile with orthodontics carries a wide range of benefits, both obvious and more subtle – and if you’re wondering what to expect from a new smile, here are some of the most common benefits:
- Oral Health: Crooked teeth offer the perfect hiding places for bacteria and plaque and are much harder to clean, so straightening your teeth can help prevent tooth decay.
- You’ll Smile More: One benefit many patients are surprised by is that when you’re content with your smile, you tend to use it more. Our patients often tell us that they find themselves smiling more after straightening their smiles with orthodontic treatment.
- Improved Confidence: A straighter smile can also provide a boost in self-esteem and confidence. Whether it’s a social event or a professional presentation, many patients feel more comfortable and confident after orthodontic treatment.
- Happiness: Finally, perhaps the most important potential benefit of a straighter smile is an improved level of happiness. Between the heightened confidence and the propensity to smile more, orthodontic treatment often raises overall levels of happiness.
