If you are embarrassed by your crooked, misaligned smile, it’s time to consider braces! Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Braces are only for teens.” But that is simply not true! More and more adults get braces each and every day, and you could be next! Here are five reasons why you should consider aligning your smile today:

No. 1: Every smile is important
Everyone deserves to be proud of their smile, even you! Imagine living a life where you love your appearance and you’re not afraid to show off your pearly whites. This will boost your self-confidence and give you the self-value you need.

No. 2: Teeth move at every age, even when they’re healthy
Teeth move every day, even when they are healthy and strong, which is why we recommend wearing braces to correct your smile and we also encourage you to follow the retainer-wearing recommendations.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
Crooked teeth tend to harbor plaque and bacteria because they are more difficult to clean. If these harmful substances are not removed from your teeth on a regular basis, they will take over your smile and create tooth decay as well as gum disease.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
There’s no better time to align your smile than today! Orthodontics are more successful, affordable, and unnoticeable than ever. You also have many appliance options that can help you feel more comfortable about the treatment. Some of those options include Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, lingual braces, and ceramic braces.

Now that you know why it’s a good idea to align your smile with orthodontics, we encourage you to call Richmond Orthodontics and schedule an appointment with Dr. Bryan Brassington, Dr. Curt Wiltshire, or Dr. Kevin Bibona. It’s time to take that first step toward a beautiful and healthy smile, and all you need to do is dial 804-740-7281! We look forward to helping you reach your smile goals.
