Whether it’s metal braces or ceramic braces, embarking on the journey to a straighter smile is a big deal. Fortunately, with advancements in dental technology and modern refinements in techniques and materials, now is a great time for braces! Here are some reasons:

Likelihood of Shorter Treatment

Many patients often think it’ll take several years to straighten their smile. However, the sooner you start treatment, the better. Orthodontic appliances like braces are more comfortable than ever and can resolve dental imperfections much faster than before. If you allow misalignment or other dental problems to worsen, you may need longer treatment to fix the problem.

Remote Work

If the idea of brackets and wires on your teeth makes you self-conscious about embarking on the journey but you work remotely or hybrid, now is a good time for braces! Less people will notice your metal or ceramic braces.

Improved Oral Health

Did you know braces do more than help you have a beautiful smile? Braces can also improve your oral health. Misaligned teeth have a higher chance of contributing to gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. Misaligned teeth can also cause headaches, abnormal wear and tear on your teeth, and cavities. It’s always a good decision to make changes that will result in improved oral health!
